n this, as I have stated, our social fabric is firmly planted; and I cannot permit myself to doubt the ultimate success of a full recognition of this principle throughout the civilized and enlightened world. As I have stated, the truth of this principle may be slow in development, as all truths are, and ever have been, in the various branches of science. It was so with the principles announced by Galileo —it was so with Adam Smith and his principles of political economy. It was so with Harvey, and his theory of the circulation of the blood. It is stated that not a single one of the medical profession, living at the time of the announcement of the truths made by him, admitted them. Now they are universally acknowledged. May we not, therefore, look with confidence to the ultimate universal acknowledgment of the truths upon which our system rests? It is the first government ever instituted upon principles in strict conformity to nature, and the ordination of Providence, in furni

; and there, on the night of the 6th, they were surprised and fiercely attacked by Vincent. The night was intensely dark, and a severe battle was fought in the gloom. The British were repulsed, but, in the darkness and confusion, both of the American commanders were captured. Meanwhile General Vincent, having been thrown from his horse in the darkness, and being unable to find either his horse or his camp, wandered off in the woods, and for a while his friends supposed he was killed. Colonel Harvey, who took command of the British forces, hurried back to Burlington Heights with his notable prisoners. At the same time, the Americans, bereft of their generals, and fearing a renewal of the attack, retreated towards Niagara with equal precipitation. They were met by a relief-party, under Col. James Miller. Vincent was found in the woods next day, without hat or sword, and almost famished. On their way back, the Americans were threatened by a British fleet, under Sir James L. Yeo,

in Faneuil Hall, in his speech of Aug. 22, 1848, are extracted in the commonplace-book which he had in college. He took the second Bowdoin prize in his senior year for a dissertation on The present character of the inhabitants of New England, as resulting from the Civil, literary, and religious institutions of the first settlers. He invested his prizemoney in books, among which were Byron's Poems, the Pilgrim's progress, Burton's Anatomy of melancholy, Hazlitt's Select British poets, and Harvey's Shakespeare. The last two were kept through life on his desk or table, ready for use. The Shakespeare was found open on the day of his death, as he had left it, with his mark between the leaves at the third part of Henry VI., pp. 446, 447, and his pencil had noted the passage: Would I were dead! if God's good — will were so; For what is in this world, but grief and woe? He spent the first year after leaving college in study, reading, among other things, Tacitus, Juvenal, Persius,

mitten Memnon, singing, wakes; And, listening by his Nile, O'er Ammon's grave and awful visage breaks A sweet and human smile. Not, as before, with hail and fire, and call Of death for midnight graves, But in the stillness of the noonday, fall The fetters of the slaves. No longer through the Red Sea, as of old, The bondmen walk dry shod; Through human hearts, by love of Him controlled, Runs now that path of God! 1856. The conquest of Finland. Joseph Sturge, with a companion, Thomas Harvey, has been visiting the shores of Finland, to ascertain the amount of mischief and loss to poor and peaceable sufferers, occasioned by the gunboats of the allied squadrons in the late war, with a view to obtaining relief for them.—Friends' Review. across the frozen marshes The winds of autumn blow, And the fen-lands of the Wetter Are white with early snow.

monwealth vs. W. W. Hardwicke, charged with the killing of Joseph Button, on the 23d day of June last, failed to agree. They stood ten for acquittal and two for conviction. Yesterday being the last day of the term, the jury was discharged, and the bail reduced from $10,000 (the amount required by the Hustings Court,) to $1,000. The case will be called at the next term of the Circuit Court, which meets on the 3d day of next June. His friends entertain no doubt of his ultimate acquittal. Thos. Harvey, indicted for stabbing Ed. A. Harvey, was yesterday discharged by the Court, a nolle prosequi being entered in the case. The offence was committed in this city, about three years ago. Both parties were from Charlotte county, Va. The District Court, Judge Wm. Daniel presiding, was convened yesterday. There are no important cases on docket. Mr. John Rucker, of this city, made a good speculation in land some few years past, the Orange and Alexandria Railroad Depot being located o
