1 I" I 3 (.! I" r f -'fc Hi: "I, li ih 1 if is- -1 -I FOETRF A PICTURE. BY J. GIBBL GILBERT. A farm house glistening in the rays Of the declining sun ; Its owner sitting in the door, His daily labor done. Broad chested and strong armed is" he, Sun-tinted, bluff, and hale;--One hand Sustains his pipe, add oo Uplifts his cup of ale. The waving fields of silken corn 'Gleam in the setting sun, Allowing to their evening fold Come brindle, black, and dun. The milk maid trips across the lawn, To claim their pearly store, The watch-dog trotting at her heels, The terrier Trim before. Hard by, beneath her father's tree, Ay, in her father's chair, With heav'ns own mildness in her face, The farmer's wifeits there ! With eager eyes she peers among The fruit o'erladeu trees, Catching, yith anxious ear, the sounds Borne onward by the breeze. Now dips the orb beneath the hills, His noontide glory past, And evening's purple shroud enfolds His waning splendor fast. The rays stream flickering up the sky In arrowy flights they run The shadows vanish from the turf He sinks the day is done. Now swift along the mountain's side, Released from village school, Two guileless, merry children leap, ! Absolved from rod ,and rule. , Health sits .upon their rosy cheek?, Loud rings their boyhh glee, One springing into mother's lap, And one to father's knee. Hither, ye toiling slaves of wealth, Ambition's fooh, look here ! Heave not your breasts with boiling thoughts ? . Start not a welcome tear ? Did all the trophies ye have won Of bliss bring half the store That animates this humble pair Beside their cottage door 1 LIMERICK, DEC. 2. Irish Teetotalism- Extraordinary Scene When I alluded in my last to faiher Matthew, 1 little thought that 1 should hive had aga:n to ppeak of him in connection with a scene, such ns I believe, in Europe, could not find its parallel. I had heard ol his fascinating influence nmohsr the lower classes, and of their firm be lief th it if they tasted spiritous liq lors after taking the priest's pledge, some great and heavy misfortune would be sure, to overtake them, bui I was, notwithstanding, wholly unprepared for what I this day witnessed... The reverend gentlemen' was expected in Limerick on Saturduy, as he was invited to preach a. charity sermon on the Sunday, and in order to prevent confusion it was announced that those who wished to take the pledge should enrol their nmes beforehand. ' O i Saturday night the number of names enrolled, I am told, was not less than twenty thousnnd. After the srrmon en Sunday, which sermon was eminently productive to the charity, the reverend gentleman proceeded to the Court EIousc to receive .the p'edges, and remained there until ten o'clock at night, the people taking the pledge by twenties at a lime, Notwithstanding the numbers thus disposed of, the state of the city this morning beggars description. At an early hour, the house of Mr. Dunbar, in Mtillow street, where the priest took up his residence, was surrounded by thousands of people from the country, until the pressure became so great that the atre railing gave way,. and a young woman was unfortunately killed upon the spot. The reverend pentleman resumed his exertions at the "Court House where he remained until the afternoon, when mailers assumed in its neighborhood, an alarming appearance. The Court fronts the Shannon, and is surrounded by an iron railing the pressure from within became so great that boats were placed to pick the people up if it ' should give way. The event thus foreseen soon afterwards occurred, and the precaution was the means of saving those who were precipitated into the river. Father Matthew by this time got alarmed for the s ifety of the people, and his alarm was fully and grraily justified by what Boon afterwards occurred. A woman was crushed to death in the crowd, and several men. when the iron railing1 towards the street was carried away to theextent of many yards, were thrown down and trampled upon by the crow&. - Three are said to have been picked up dead, and one with his arm broken, besides others more or less severely injured. The dragoons were sent for and the reverend gentleman was escorted back to Mllow street. The numbers who by this time had thronged into the town to take the pledge, have been estimated as high as from 60.000 to 70.000; for comparatively few of its inhabitants were among the disciples, many of them having taken the pledge previously, and vet the various vehicles and the steamboats were laden with new converts to temperance, indeed the latter dangerously so. In Mallow street nnd Catharine street, the dragoons kept a lane ' in the centre sufficiently wide for two people to walk abreast, and on each side of this lane the -people knelt in the 'mud, while the reverend C-mleman passed through, repeating after htm a nearly as I could catch them, the following words: "I solemnly promise to abstain from all intoxicating liquors, and by my advice and example to persuade others to abstain also." Crowd after crowd thus takethe pledgo and piss away, but to make room for succeeding throngs rushing to beome his disciples. It is now dark, and yet still are the streets. I have named filled--with suppliants kneeling to take the pledge. Irish enthusiasm I never witnessed, but wht is most singular, to those not aware of the results heretofore produced in similar circum- nances, is. that amongst such a crowd elsewhere nreven in Ireland itself, not one-tenth so many . 'Sunken people are to be found. And I saw more people to "day drunk, than I have eer . , Been in nay life. This however, is easily accounted for. It is not to be supposed that all those who go to Mr. Matthew are drunkards, but the great mass of them have beVn in the Y'liabit of occasional hard drinking. They re-i."! ve to go to him and take the pledge, and it is a strange anomaly that those who are about to forego drinking spirit forever, on the day beore tbey take the pledge get drank by way of taking1 their last farewell of the "sweets" of drunkenness, U is still a fact, as I have been credibly informed that even those who thus riot in debauchery until the pledge is actually taken, ore never known to touch spirits afterwards. They say that Mr. Matthew has reduced the revenue on spirits in Cork alone to the extent of I 0,000. If he pro ceeds as successfully elsewhere as in Limerick tbere can be no q;test;on but half the distilleries in Ireland will be. obliged to give up business. So densely crowded is the town that the price of bread roe from 21 tp 6J., and was at this price snatched from the baskets of the bakers men by the famishing1 multitude, and the peasantry from the neighboring counties were obliged, having no othtr shelter from the weather, to pay lOd each for standi:)? room in the cellars of the old town. Loninn Paper. FROM Tilt OLO DOMINION. MR. BYNUM AND HIS TRADUCERS. The Federal lettor writers at Washington have furnished the whig prss with columns of abuse against Mr. Bynnm, which has heen copied m all their papers throughout the country. The saying of Mr. Jtfferson, thnt a Lie would travel a thousand miles while Truth was pul ling on hisJboots, has been verified in this instance, but the truth has come at last, and we find the statements of the whigs worth just as much 93 all there facts ihore is no truth in them. Let us now hear what will be said by puffers of the warlike Stauly and the chivalrous Jennifer. The following lttter was communica ted to the Globe : Washington City, Jan. 7, 1840. Messrs. Blaib axd Rives : I have seen, in the report of the Globe, but more fully in the National Intelligencer, the remarks of n Mem ber of Congress frim North Carolina, in which he is represented as having said in the House of Representatives, on the 3d inst that he had, on some former occasion, " insulted me," and for which I hud threatened to call him to account, &c. This h is been seized on and circulated by some of the Utters written from Washington, with a view of m v disparagement. Now. sir, I should hive claimed credit, if what has been reported had been true, -whh every honorable, highminded man in the community. lor pafsing uith silence any thing coming from such a source, after the exposures of Dr. .Dan-can : but the fict is. J am not aware of ever having made any threats, or having been in suited by the individual who claims she honor of having done so, and thus becomes the trump etet (most modestly) of his own heroism; ai;d if he says' it was dose in the loose cf Representatives, then I appeal to the whole Democra tic party, and the Speaker at the, head, who ought to know b-st of the insults and threats that wefe passed on the fior of the House of Repr.-?eii!itivi s. Or I would appeal to the Journals of the House, cr the repor's of the day, if such facts appear on them. Not that I claim the less en dit for passing such a thing unnoticed, but I feel it due to truth to contradict what are not facts in relation to my own conduct. In the debate alluded to, on the 2J inst, I did not hear the offensive remarks of either of my as salients at tint time, as reported. As to their insinuations about gentleman, they are not more contemptible than laughable. If to be a gentleman is to receive the sanction of a clique of a few bullying members of Congress, who have apparently constituted themselves into a board of honor, to decide on the claims of others to the standing of gentlemnn a clique, too, composed of the most beggaily, broken, bankrupt, drunken, prodigal and prnfiigait materials that have e-ver been asembUid in the same body no mm of worth, of morals, industry, or prudence, hut must feel honored in their denials to him of such s tnction, and of the claim to be such a gentleman as one of themselves. These remarks I should hive made sooner ihrongh your coIutuds, in reply to -vhat I have seen reported, but did not hear, but for my indisposition, which hns confined me to my bed until this tim-. Your?, with great respect, J. A. BYNUM. 1 K S3 AD. FRESH LOAF BREAD will be -H-J ready for delivery every morning (Sundays excepted) at sun rise.

From the high character these young ladies enjoy with all who have had an opportunity of becoming acquainted with their qualifications, we have great confidence in presenting their claims to the public as worthy of the highest consideration. They are not without experience in teaching and where they have heretofore taught, their patrons have held them in high estimation as is manifested by the daily and hourly applications now made lor admission into their present school on behalf of their former pupils. Connected with the institution is a Musical Department, now under the direction of Mr. J. A. E. Winkler, a native of Germany, a gentleman of reputation in his line, who will give instruction in any or all of the branches of music. Board can be obtained in the village at the very low rate, of $6 00 per month, exclusive of candles, and the prices of tuition will be found, we think, unusually low. They are as follows, to wit : For spelling, reading and writing, $6 00 English Grammar, Geography, and Arithmetic, 9 00 . -.T 1 1 Tf. 1 , nisiory, .astronomy, iaiurai muni i Philosophy, &c.

THE INDIAN EL.IXIE&; A CURE FOR Coughs, Asthma, fy Infiainmodion of the Lungs, Is a vegetable extract, of an agreeable taste, and certain in its happy results.1 The secret of making this pleasant elixir was communicated by an Indian chief, or rhediciner as he was caiied, to an English physician attached to the command of Gen. Wolfe, after the ca pitulation of Quebec, as an aci of gratitude for some t. favor he had received during the progress of that affair. Shottly after this transaction the professional gentleman was recalled, (by the decease of some wealthy con nexions at home,) to the possession of an ample for- time.- Although the doctor abandoned his former pursuits, he never relinquished ihe practice ol the ''Indian Elixir," which he prescribed to a very great extent wili- y out receiving any compensation whatever, except tbe ' reward which attends the performance of a good action.

The heir, therefore, finally willed to di the business entirely by agency; making only so moderate a charge, as merely to defray the expenses of pre- paring the medicine. With a view to this object, the : executors have appointed C. E. HOIT the sole agent for North America and the West India Islands twho will reside in New-York, and appoint such sub.agen! as, in hife judgment, necessity may require. Certificates and letters of recommendaiion -may be had of the ageiits. where many.of the originals may be examined, which would satisfy the most fastidious.
