A young gentleman who left Canada in July last and went via the great Lakes to the colony of Red River, Hudson’s Bay Territory, has ^ent us the following mel­ ancholy account o f the fate of his two companions ia their subsequent journey from that colony to St. Peters : We left the settlement of Red River (better known as Lord Selkirk’s Color,y,) Hudson’s Bay Territory, on the 27th of February. My companions were a Mr- Richard Hayes and Mr, Ignatius Parys. We proposed walking across the plains on snow shoes & Fort Snelling, St. Peters ; the distance, as it is necessary to trav­ el it in winter season, is 750 miles. We were piovidsd with a Metiff or half blood, a native of the colony, as guide, and dogs and traineau fo carry our provisions, buffalo robes, blankets, &c. None but those who have travelled in the winter season, in the greiat prairies of the north and west, can have any idea of the fatiguo, privations and dangers, at­ tendant on the traveller in these dreary re­ gions. Constantly exposed to cold winds, frequently unable to cross the long trav­ erses, which in many instances extend more than fifty miles from one point of woods to another, in thess cases obliged to pass the night on the plain, foi tunate if he can find the miserable shelter o f a few rushes which are found near the ponds of the prairie. But the greatest o f the traveller’s many sufferings is from thirst. Even while walking on frozen water, he suffers tbe greatest anguish, which h© in vain endeavors to alleviate by eating snow, this only increases his sufferings ; his mouth becomes more and more inflamed ; his desire for drink fearfully augments, while a lassitude comes over him which water only can dissipate. The weather in February had been un­ usually mild fo’r the northern climate of Red River settlement, and at the time of our departure, some of the oldest inhabi- ta.its predicted our subsequent sufferings and disasters—saying that March would be terribly cold and stormy,' and at the same time giving US the unpleasant infor­ mation that they not only considered, but actually knew March to be the m on dan- g^rou.H montfi in the year to travel the plains in. We too soon realized the prediction^ of the old hunters. From the 4th to the 15th of RJarch we had scarcely a day without a storm. In fact, the weather was a continuation of stprms. At differ­ ent times we had been obliged to pass eight days in encampments. These de­ lays had: fearfully reduced our food. We were aware o.f our great distance from any trading post, where alone we could expect to get relief^ knowing that there were no Indians within three hundred miles of our route, from the almost total absence of the Buffalo, as We saw but 19 in travelling 500 miles. , Our only alternative was to push on as fasf as possible to the trading establish­ ments of the American Fur Company, at Lake Traverse, near the head of. St- Peters river. Bui we found it easier to determine than to effect. Continued exposure to the cold, without a Sufficiency of food, (which, little as it was, we had frequently to eat ic, a frozen state,) had so weakend u« that it was with difficulty .we could drag one foot after another and our feet were so severely lacerated by the frozen cords of the snow shoes that it was n > uncommon thing to see the blood oozing through Our moccasins.' Such was our miserable condition, when, oi\ the 17th o f March, -we were suddenly overtaken in tbe plain by \a storm of snow and sleet from tbe north west, waich I shall not attempt to describe. At the time the storm came on we were about five miles from a point of wood, which lay in our route. I happen­ ed to be in front, the dogs followed tclose tom e , Mr. Hays )iot more than* 50 yards behind Ljtfr. Parys more than a mile distant. T h e morning haying been very fine, the guide, not apprehending any danger, had left us to follow the track of & deer, intending td cross tbe plain in an­ other direction, and meet us at the' wood io which we were hastening when tbe storm’ came on, wetting us through io our skin and blanket coats, Which soon became stiff with frost, and enveloped us in dense clouds of drifting snow,- from which we found it difficult 10 escape, halfsuffiiCated. Fortunately, I had noticed the sudden change of the wind from north-west to north, and shaped my course according­ ly, still hoping to reach the. wood; up­ on which Mr. Hayes, who was then .quite near me, observed that we were going wrong and would certainly perish. I re­ plied, “ No, no—follow mo quick as you can.” At this instant I qaw him stoop, probably to arrange his snow sh o e s ; I cOnti tued on a few paces— an immense cloud ol snow hid him from my sight and 1 never afterwards saw hjm.—-l had not proceeded more than two miles when 1 fell down a steep ravine, and before 1 could extricate m yself -out o f the snow, was nearly suffocated. On regaining tlie edge qf the ra vine, 1 found the dogs tran, eau completely buried in a snow bank.— After digging them out with one'otrny snow shoes I managed to puss the ravihe, and in a short time found rnyselfin the edge of a small wood which 1 aftewra**ds discovered to be the same for xhich had started in the morning, where we were to have waited for the guide. The wood afforded but little shelter, being only a few straggling oaks upon a rising grgtind, and after a number of fruitless attempts, f had to abandon all hopes o f making a fire during the contm. uation of the storm ; vyhich seemed every moment to increase with tenfold violence. Having made a'hole ir) a snow bank, I rolled myself up, covered a s I was with snow and ice, in buffalo robes and blank* ets, and got under the snow, where I lay un­ til the following morning. My sufferings were severe. For more than sixteen hours I had almost continually to keep rubbing my feet and hands to save them from be­ ing frozen, and at the same time to keep myself from falling asleep, for which I had the greatest desire.; knowing well, that should 1 allow sleep to over povve^me, I would perish, and I had but little hope of again seeing the guide. Thus I was alone in a strange country —the route unknown to me, even should I escape the horrors of the night— bu­ ried in a snow bank in a halt frozen state, fearful that I would be unable to kindle a fire after the storm had ceased, and to add to the gloominess Of my situa tion I was annoyed the whole night by the howling of innumerable wolves In concert with the raging storm. At dawn I crept from under the snow and fired two shots. Sooi^ after the guide came up and informed me that he had, after wandering for more than four hours in tho plain, by mere chance fallen into a small wood, about seven miles tothe west, where he had managed to keep himself from freezing by making a large fire, being well provided with materials for that purpose. Mr. Farys was found half buried in snow and almost dead. He survived four days. AU search for Mr. Hays proved ineffectual, arid as he had not ta­ ken the precaution to provide himself with materials for making fire there can be no doubt of his fate. Even had he lived through the night, which I think impossible, he must have perished after­ wards frotn either cold or hunger. Being without any food except part of one of the dogs which he had been obliged to kill, we had nothing but the melancholy alternative of leaving Mr. Parys behind tn a hut made of our buffalo skins, and hastening on to the trading establishment, upwards pf70 miles dis­ tant, for relief. Having remained one day near the scene of disaster, the guide and myself set out at 2 P. M- and on the following day at dark, we reached the trading establishment. Men were im mediately despatched for Mr. Parys, with orders to search for the body of Mr. Hayes. They returned in eleven days bringing in the body of Mr. Parys, whom they found dead id the lodge We had made Fr r him. Ever) thing in the hut indicated that he had died on the second jor third day of our departure. As this is given to the public with a hope that by that means the melancholy fate of ray unfortunate companions may come to tbe knowledge of their friends, it ,may becom e consolation ta those o f Mr; 'Parys to hear that he was decently inter­ red near the trading house of the Amer- can Fur Company, Lake Travers. It is painful to say that there is now t.o probability of the remains of Mr. Hayes eVfer being found, as, since my arrival at St. Peter’s. I have heard from the In­ dians of lake Travers, who in their spring hunts, near where Mr. Hayes must have perished, searched a number of days Without being successful. Mr, Parys was’ a native of Porand, and formerly an officer in »he Polish ar­ my. H e served with Gen. Rommno during tbe late revolution in Poland, and was in ail the great battles of that despe­ rate stuggle. After the fail of Warsaw, be left his unhappy country and travelled through Germany, France, and Eng-’ land; H e came to America in the spring of 1827, and at the time e f his death was about 97 ye »rs of age. Mr. Hayes was from Glenmire county, Oork, Ireland, and since his arrival in* America, lived, until June or July last, at Laehine, Lower Canada.—1 H e was 21 years of age. M. M.

T H E NA T I V E AMERICAN SILK W O R M — N E W PL A N FO E T H E W ORM S T O W IND T H E COCOONS. Mr. Editor—-Since the receipt of your paper yesterday, f received the Nantucket Inquirer p f Ihe 15th insf,, in which Mr. ’ Jenks asks for further intelligence in re­ lation to .the article, on the Silk Worm, .published in the Star o f the Bd inst. As the words, “ six different plans for the worm to wind the cocpon,*’ were publish­ ed verbatim as t expressed them in con­ versation with you, the call seems to re­ quire some explanation on iny part. I will give it briefly thus t ” It is so many con trivances to accommodate tbe insect in its preparation ibr ‘ winding up,’ or so many different contrivances on which (not round which) the larve may suspond and wind the cocoon. One ofthe plans maybe de­ scribed thus: nine lath \ inch thick, 1^ inch wide, and 40 inches' loqg placed on edge, horizontal, parallel to each other, and 1 inch apart in the*cle r ; these are connected by lath,, 111 'inches long, fastened across the ends ; the whole forming a grate of 9 bars by 40 inches. Five of these grates, placed pa­ rallel to^aqd above each other, | inch, apart In the clear, connected by a single nail at each corner, with lath 9|^ inches long, standing vertically on end, form's one plan, which is probably the be>t of the six, and in the opinion of some good judges is superior to all other plans (not except­ ing the European plan of bushes and branches of trees) for economy, both in the space which it occupies to accommo­ date an eq u a l number of worms, and the expense of Construction. The 48 lath required for its construction are worth 6 cents, and can be made with the labor of one hour worth 12 cents— making in all 18 cents. The worms wind the cocoons between' the bars and between the grates, when by removing the 4 vertical lath at the corners, the cocoons can be cleared out in a few minutes, certainly io less time, and in better condition, tljian the same number can be removed from among bushes and leaves. The native American Silk Worm feeds upon elder, which is its principal food, and from it spins a cocoon of good silk, strong, soft, and lustrous, though courser than that of the Asiatic worm. The sm dlest cocoon in my possession, from the n'ative American worms, is 70 per cent, heavier than the heaviest of the Asi atic. A fair average ofthe native cocoons are nearly three hundred per cent, heavier than most of the Asiatic. 1 weighed to­ day a fair average of the native^ American cocoons with four different kinds of Asia­ tic, from my own raising this year—the weights show the quantity of silk, without the chrysalis, aa follows : I^ative American Cocoon, 17. grains. Asiatic large white do. 6 | “ ‘‘ bright do. do. 4 “ ii Monti di Brianza, a pale yellow, B “ ” Golden Yellow, 2 “ The ova of the two last named were imported by Mr. Tinelli the present year. They are much cultivated in Italy and Spain, and produce the finest silks in Eu­ rope* The Monti di Brianza is particu­ larly famed for receiving and retaining the most beautiful dye. By the above you will perceivp that the Native American furnishes 850 per cent, more silfi than the Golden Yellow AmUc. A description of the Native American Silk Worm may enable Mr. Jenks to re­ cognize an old’ and familiar acquaintance, whom he has often frightened from its resting-place with the exclamation, “ Oh ! what a beautiful butterfly,” pronounced in a tone too loud and too harsh fo» such sensitive antennee. , It ranks in Linne’s System of Nature in the Animal Kingdom, Class 5, Insec order III, Lepidoptera, Genus, Phalaena. The Moth or perfect insect is without pro­ boscis, and therefore cannot eat ; it , has antennae 2 pectinate and black, head white, eyes 2 black, thorax red,- abdomen entirely surrounded with alternate red and white bands, wings 4 brownish gray, light­ er in the mule, interior of two upper wings red, with one large oceliate spot near each exterior, and 2 smaller and less distinct in the margin ; from the anterior to the pos­ terior is a band of 2 distinct red and white lines, between this band and the interior is a large white lunate macula surroundod with red and black, tbe last r’escribi-d band and lunate macula are Jhe same in lower wings ; across the exterior and margin is a band of 4 distinctlines ashy gray ; low­ er wings the same.

The ovar is cream color cPouded with red- dish gum, with which they are fastened to the leaf or hark. T5 e Pupa or Chrysalis is dark brown, enclosed in a cocoon of strong, soft and lush ous silk. It is an a tive of the North American States, and is found in no other country. I have eleven ofthe cocoons in my possession four of whieh I found on Manhattan Island, near Harlem, N. Y ., and seven in the forest Of Bergen county, N. J, I intend this summer to manufacture some sewing silk from the native Ameri­ can cocoons, and hereby promise to send Mr, Jenks one skein o f it, provided he will ‘ contrive’ to some better name than * con­ trivance* of the plan of lath described in this^commuuication. - Yours, &c. * 1 O.

Mr. Webster now ‘stands pre-eminently in tlm first rank o f living statesmen, and as an expounder ofr our national constitu­ tion and the true principles of our govern­ ment, he fias proved himseif to be superior, to any other in the United States. ^ This is admitted by the intelligent and honora­ ble men among his opponents, and will be insisted on by all, o f evfery name .and par- tyy so soon as lie shall have passed from, the stage of life. This prediction is made- fearlessly, confidently— and to the proof o f its correctness we ask the attention of the reader but for a moment. . , In.his reply to Coi. fjayu©, of Soutfi Carolina, Mr, Webster, in one o f the most splendid senatorial efforts that ever re­ sounded in the legislative halls o f any na^ tion, in any age, maintained and defended^ th-* authority and the principles o f the con­ stitution, the supremacy o f the laws, and. the integrity of the Hnion ; and was main­ ly instrumental iu warding off dangers which all admitted to exist, and which then threatered to overthrow the govern­ ment. We will not take upon ourselves to impeach the motives of those against whom lie then contended ; they undoubt­ edly believed themselves in the right; but there were conflicting opinions lespecting constitutional doctrines vitally important to the existence of (he republic, that made wise men tremble for the consequences. But the masterly exposition given by Mr/ Webster on that occasion, seemed effectu­ ally to settle the agitating questions under discussion ; tho debates wore away; the momentary asperities incident to the fer­ vor and heat of argument, were softened' down ; the impending danger passed ; the. discussion ended, and members departed in as much, harinony and personal good will for each other as js usual on such o c­ casions. _ Yet this victory of principle, this glo-, rious triumph of the constitution, tbrotlgh the instrumentality o f Mr. Webster, alarm­ ed tho fears and excited the jealousy of the leaders o f ‘ the party and they* dead to all sense of either honor or shame, ridi­ culed and calumniated the individual by. whom the principles ofthe constitution and* government had heen thus ably vindicated.! They represented his arguments as weak and puerile, and his sentime.nts as being butrthe repetition of old federal doctrines, taking cate to insinuate thatthey were e x ­ ceedingly monstrous, without explaining what they w.ere. ., , w But m irk the sequel. _ Anon, anqther danger arose from the *ame quarter, equal­ ly or more formidable, threatening an e x ­ tinction o f the functions of the,general g o ­ vernment in one ofthe states of the Union, Its form was different from that which had passed, though its tendency wae similar* and its location was such that it could nri’t be met or affected by senatorial debates*’— When this danger became imminent, G en/ Jackson aroused himself, to action* and turned it aside by his celebrated proclama­ tion. ..That proclamation was based en­ tirely uoon the ground taken by Mr. Web­ ster in his senatorial exposition of the, constitution and laws of Congress. So^, far forth as the proclamation purpoited to bo an exposition of the principles of civil government, the sanctity of law and (lie. spirit o f the constitution, it was borrowed from Mr. Webster’s Speech in tbq senate/ That was the vademecum, the very t e x t - , book from whieh ©very sound principle in the proclamation was taken. For this act Genera! Jackson was lauded to the skies by the mercenary crew by whom he w,af surrounded, from “ the author o f the let­ ter to Sherrod jYilliams” dqwn to the low­ est of the vfle, wb'le they at the same time, dead to all sense of honor and ,of shame, were calumniating the source from whicfy their idol had derived his constitutional weapon, ascribing to him’unsound politicalj principles w‘ ich he. never professed, and odious sentiments which he never uttered. — Geneva Courier. .
