A CONTRAST. One of tle most striking contrasts afforded by. the conduct of the different 'candidates for the Presidency, is that which is presented by the behavior of the opponents of Mr. Crawford towards Vim and his behavior towards them. Mr. Crawford, , confiding himself to his proper departments has never assailed one of thenr r- He has projected no plot to defame them, stirred up no combination to injure them, written no letters to impair their credit or the credit of either of them. )l What has been "the conduct of Mes9. Calhoun & Adams towards Mr. Crawford ? They have instituted newspapers to revile him 5 they have taken from the newspapers which support him the patronage of the public oflices, avowedly by way "of punishment ; whilst on a sick bed, they .have countenanced a conspiracy to . destroy his character, and, after worrying him duringextreme illness, they have circulated falsehoods that he was dying. Nay more, they have combined, in a letter under their own signatures, in declaring that ..his character, which had been purified by three committees of investigation, was still in doubt, and had not been finally decided upon. - On the part of Mr. Crawford we be hold the most honorable deportment: On the, part of Messrs. Adams & Calhoun, tile most wanton, active, and rincorous, , persecution the most dishonorable behavior. - They have meanly taken advantage of his sickness to intrigue against 'the' Secretary of the Treasury, and have, without authority, dragged in the name of President Monroe to ruin him, 1 Had he been well, they would not have dared to dd so. Neither Adams nor Calhoun could have withstood his glance in the cabinet. But their day. is past. Their political doom is sealed.-Washington Gaz. the jews: The Existence and present Circum stances of the Jtws, a proof of the authenticity" of their history. i ' ' ' ; -,c .

This "subject is in ruth pregnant with curiosity and wonder.. Should you say (for what will Vnu not say ?).that this pertinacity ftn tneir superstitions is the mere result of early education and root- ed prejudice, without any respect to a providential- economy, in. their former aggregations and their future disposal 5 I would ask; where . these ten-tribes of Israel, who had imbibed the same prejudices of education, are existing at this day ? They are-no more known 5 tho' abundant. in. number above the chosen tribes, they are long since dissolved and lost in the vast ocean of mankind ; whilst this slender rivulet, conducted by the hand of God, has transmitted, like the fabled river of poetical antiquity, a pure and unmingled current, through the stream of time, and the torrent of revolutions, to the present age. JProtestant Dissenter s Jllag. vol. m,p. 140. RELIGIOUS LIBERALITY. We read with pleasure the following extract from a small work lately published under the title of Recollections of Jotham An- tiers on ' Mr. Ellerton, of whom I'spoke in the last diapter, was another added to the number or the fc excellent 01 the earth, ' whom it had been my privilege to know. Some of the peculiarities of his religious faith, and those in pretty important particulars, ,vvere widely different, I had reason to think, from those of any other gootl man 1 had met with. He did not believe in a tri-per-sonal Deity , and thi3 vas a sort of unbelief, which I, i like ten thousand others, looked upon with a vague sort of horror,. I knew not whence nor why. For a long time, therefore, I could not believe that he was so good a christian as he seemed to be ; and .when it was impossible to doubt this, my next conclusion very naturally was, that Trini-tarianism, though the truth, yet could not be essential to the christian, for here was .a christian without it. This discovery did a great deal to set me a thinking and to enlarge my views. But its best and happiest consequence was, to confirm me in my persuasion, that the great practical and vital principles of our religion are common to all believers. From this persuasion I have never varied. Experience has every year confirmed it 5 and f, is still "one of the mot comforting convictions of my heart. I look forward with the most. delightful anticipation to the day, when I shall join "in. due communion the souls of those many good men, whom I have honoured aud loved here, but i'roni whose fellowship, I have been shut out, by the miserable bars which prejudice and pride have put up amid the churches on earth." from the Boston JMedical Intelligencer. : FOOD. Among those objects which immediately relate to health, there is no one more important, or less regarded by individuals, than their aliment. It is a mistaken notion,, that one person requires an animal diet, and another, whosye-avocations and habits are' different, a vegetable regimen many of the diseases originating in dyspepsia, the great epidemic of the Northern States, are induced by a habit of Jiving too exclusively upon a few articles of food, most of which are animal. Nature in tended that man should subsist upon the variety of bounties with which she has so liberally replenished the "earth, and constituted his system in a maimer suitable, to partake, almost indiscriminately, of whatever is agreeabie to his palate ; and the injurious veffects of many articles of diet are tobe attribuT-ted, not so much to theirpeculiar na ture, as to the refinements of cookery. Although the roast beef yf England has become the inagnumbonura of a good dinner in this country, the too great freedom and frequency with which it is used, already begins 10 affect the consUtutions of the opulent, by those peculiar disorders which have been en- .1 - ..

It is true that animal food contains a greater portion 01 nutriment, in a given quaiitity, than vegetables, and in' a proper state, of preparation it., is best adapted for the immediate actiorrof the absorbents of the chylo-poetic viscera ; but the digestive functions of the human! system become prematurely exhausted, by constant action, and the whole system eventually sinks under great or uninterrupted excitetiaeut; 'If plain animal food were taken once a day, ' and men would substitute for the various ragouts with which modern ta bles are so .abundantly furnished, wholesome vegetables and pure wated or a weaK, lermentea ueverage Tor tne more deleterious potations of distilled liquors, we should see health walking in the paths that are now crowded with the victims bf voluptuous appetite.!

A labouring man purchased a cow of a farmer in.; the! interior of Massachusetts, -for S 0, one half of which was to be paid in cash; the other half in la-oour. One day while at work thresli ins I in thef farmer's uarh,;; not knowing tiiat any one vyas near him, hel begtu to soliloq uize iii the ibUo wing-manner : Take one from tvvo leavesj.hree j and twd from two leaves four ; anuV three troth tivo leay Und I'm afraid1 mv tnastei s co w will never be paid foi. , The farmsr, over-hsarin&thc soliloquy, stepped into tlie barn, and told the labourer if he would ! proVe to be the case, he would give him the cow, 1 and pay him for wnat la- bour.he had. done. The labourer read i ly agreer to it, and began in th e fol - lowing manner : I have now been mar- ill . . . m U '. ' .
