Some ot our good neighbors are so worried about it that (our customers say) they have imitated the price but the quality is quite different. Some say we sell it for a bait. Well we are satisfied with bait­ ing the people in this way and are quite ready to sell all the goods we have a t as small a profit as we sell the Tea, and many of them much less. Some say they are afraid we stole it, but we can show them that we came honestly by it, and what is more—it is paid for.

J^T H T G SONG BOOKS, ( a nc^ i ^ o N S L ’ N E W WHIG SONG. By a Whig Lady e f this town. Come gentlemen and ladies all, and think your­ selves quite lucky, To sing so true a Jersey blue, another from Ken­ tucky ; . . . The Locofocos hate them both, but this is not surprising, For two su c h men they cannot find, as Clay and Frelinghuysen. O Kentucky—New Jersey and Ken­ tucky, O Kentucky—New Jersey and Kentucky. There’s James K. Poll? and Dallas too, ar.d Ty­ ler with his Bobby, It they would wear the Texan yoke, and ride the slaver’s hobby, Why let them all to Texas go, the freedom they’re despising, They leave for those they would oppose, to Clay and Frelinghuysea. <3 Kentucky, tec. There’s Millard Fillmore, when a boy he scarce­ ly knew his letters, And when a lad, it made him sad —nowpmnt me out his betters. With men like ihese to guide our helm, we 11 be a prosperous nation, Nor fear that Locofoco realm, the Texas annex- tio n . 0 Kentucky, tec. The Tariff too, I ’d like to know, why h is such* v e x a tio n , When it protects our Artisans, and keeps from taxation, Since Fillmore brought the bill about, our coun­ try has been rising, It’s strong supporters, too, have been p u r Clay and Frelinghuysen. O Kentucky, tec. When our barn-burning Governor, was placed iu his high station, He gave his word to go lor our internal naviga- tion, Bin his destructive policy, and party obligation, Makes him a tool for knave to rule, ihat sinks our State and nation. O Kentucky, tec. Now Fillmore has, for Governor, received the nomination. We hope to see our State arise from utter deg­ radation, And many honest men there are, from party chains arising, Will give their votes for Fillmore, and for Clay and Frelinghuysen. O Kentucky, tec- Come gentlemen and ladies all, and think your­ selves most lucky, To sing so true a Jersey blue, another from Ken- lucky. The Abolitionists are out fer tbeir's no com­ promising, The Union’s gone unless they vote for Clay and Frelinghuysen. O Kentucky, tec. M. W. C. O n e o f M r. C h a n d l e r 's G e m s . We copy irom the United States Gazette the episodical portion of a letter from the editor, now on a visit to the coal mines of Mauch Chunk. Those who do not read it will lose much. TH E SUMMIT. This is the top, as its name (lor once in Penn­ sylvania, justly applied,) indicates Here are the cosi mines■; here is the machinery for rais­ ing, cracking and silting the coal. Here are all the appliances o; the business ; and here is no­ thing that I could see, but what had a relation to the business—the school house and church being legitimate portions of the mining interests. One or two handsome houses are here; a tav­ ern, admirably kept by Mr. Simpson ; a dwel­ ling, belonging to some contractor or officer, and most of the rest were shantees, in the various meaning o f that word. The coal here is not mined, strictly speaking at least the soil and rocks are not undermined but the whole superincumbent mass is remov­ ed, to the extent of thirty acres, and the coal beds exposed like a gravel pit. Here the work­ men are employed in the open air, exposed, of coqrse, to the upper temperature, and the chan­ ges o f weather, but working in heaven’s light. There are, as we learn, about lour hundred and seventy-five persons on the summit. They live in peace ; and we learned from the intelligent keeper of the “ Summit House,” ihat temperance and constant employment were wonderful peace makers and peace preservers. Busy, laboring people have too mueh to do in the day time to dispute, and are too glad to go to bed at night, to quarrel. Having looked about a little, and asked di- vers questions, 1 joined the company at a well supplied dinner table, before going among the laborers. I have found it a good tale to do no­ thing on an empty siotnach—eating always ex­ cepted. Having discussed the viands of the host, our company set lorth, with my friend Foster as the welt informed and polite cicerone. We made quite a display, as we marched in rank entire up the road, any thing like echelon, platoon, or file movements, being inconsistent with the state of the pathway, then moistened by rain. It was a pleasant sight to see the com­ pany pressing forward to the wonderful exhibi­ tion of nature and art, the stupendous works of man over the more marvelloas productions of nature. But somehow it is, I seldom can be fir.-t 'n such things; perhaps my mind is narrower, suited to smaller fields of examination, and pre­ pared for the impression of minute objects. My attention was arrested by a group ofbttle children of both sexes, making their way slowly to the afternoon school. Some were bare-leg­ ged ; pretty ancles, theirs—pretty shaped, I mean—for the exposure to mud from coal dust was not-favorable to colour. Scarcely one was fully dressed, and yet decency had contrived with what was at hand, to satisly her fastidious, eye, and innocence was there to gaze without a blush at accidental exposure. It was a merry group, gossipping at the events o f the morntnz, or of the enlarged possession of some oie of the number, who had acquired the whole-half ol an apple and was sharing Hie wealth by bites among the company. AU were as gay as the idea bf going to school would permit. Yet among them I discovered one taller by the shoulders upward than all the rest, lie was well clothed—at least fully clothed, with jacket, trowsers, and a long pinalore, lhat told of special cate at home. He wore no hat, and the low forehead and nervous movement o fthe body satisfied me, even before I reached him, that he was an IDIOT BOY. As I came up to the group, my company had gone on, so I stopped to have a word to say lo the little strangers, and gather a world o f infor matiou about themselves, their parents, their school, tfieir teacher, their sports, and their little cares and troubles. A dozen pennies paid the whole of them amply tor the knowledge obta n- ed. when, lifting up my eyes again 1 discovered the poor boy. I was right—his face was com­ pletely idiotic. He stood at a distance, with a vacant stare at my little congregation. I beck­ oned him forward, for I love io hold converse with such ; it is a sort of sympathy which the weakness of one’s own mind has with the wteck of that of others. I felt at home with the poor boy, and did not envy the company lhat had stopped to admire a drovt ol mules just ready for attachment to the ears. Mine was a pari of my own kind, and a more fruitful theme lor contemplation them theirs; and so, alter a word or two with the poor-lad, I laid upon his hand a small silver coin. I thought for a moment that a spark of intel­ ligence flashed fro.n his eye. He continued, however, to hold his right hand extended, in the palm of which lay the money, and with the fore finger of the other hand he felt o fthe coin, upon which he gazed with a sort of sickening interest. At length he mingled in the group ot the school children, and went round from one to the other, pointing to his wealth. It was school t i m e , so they all set forth on their mis sion. Turning my head soon after, to see how my little friends proceeded, I noticed that the id- 101 boy, still holding his hand exieuded, stopped suddenly and seemed for a moment perplexed. Al length he shut his hand close, turned round and a t the top of his speed ran past me, and in lo a small shanty. J longed lo know what had infiuencad ihe lad thus to leave his fellows, il they vtete fellows, but I did not venture into the sbanty. As I approached the part of the Toad that turned down towards ihe mines, I fell a curios­ ity about some object at hand, and so 1 stepped, over to the other side of the road, where was a woman standing at work, with two little chil­ dren scarcely three years o!dr one on each side of her. Having satisfied my immediate curios­ ity, 1 had a word or two to say which seemed due to the mother, so I asked about the family. Jhts is your child,’ said I layingm y hand upon the curly head nearest me. “ Yes ; I have three older and two younger.” Drawing from my pocket a p iece of money, at which liberality would have turned up its nose, I was giving it to the child nearest me, when the mother, seeing the movement, direct- my hand and the gift to -the other one. 1 Not this one,” said she •• not this one if you please—this is mine—give it to the other.— reo r little Alary is an orphan.—site lias neither father nor mother. Give it to her if yon please. She stays with us, and we do the b.est we can for her, but she is still an orphan.” Spjritof woman’s benevolence, ih/u turnest aside the offering from her own cnitd to tfl® hand Of the orphan—the orphan lh3-} the bread and divides affection wnh ti f offrnrino\ iefm v }<saro jrorn thee . . and as f gather u r i f m inuter'io parental pride mayest thou direct my hand to the orphan and tlie destitute, without the ostentation that seem pj to mark m y present gift, and.wnh the true benevolence that shone in the character of the mother on “ tfi-V•Summit.” Right marvellous was it lo behold the labor- ers’iq -the coal pits. A gang h ere was clearing away masses of earth; there, was a body of men scraping np the refuse o f co'al. In anoth- the drill. W; e r place t w as plied for a blast; and ev- onta 2 t an.°j» a l -?i\ ° f would.dash hy, with- directlv motive power, and almost strearron. & &ln\*e ear would be seen I S n!vuh tiff a,fnass ol' coa1' Al> seemed rimes ' ! a! 1 f as animation ; while at times, the heavy mules, securely slow,’ were hid ? Ira'n 0i loaded cars, that WKhcu 'a id and without touch- 5 ' r ; ? Wonderful sight, and right glad was I to keep clear ot mntes nn» . . j blast; and while looking round for safeiv* 1 saw the idiot BOY in the midst of what appear- ed to me imminent danger. “ Get out,” said a miner, in a tone that com­ menced with much severity, but seemed lo dwindle down into a cadence of kindness. “ Go home,” said another, “ the lock will be upon you.” “ 1 ake that,/ said a thi-d, as he threw a piece of coal so wide of the boy that it was evident he did not mean to hit him. Still the boy stood gaping about in his usual stolidity, his eyes and mouth half oper, and evidently regardless of the danger and moni­ tion. There was to be a blast, and all must clear out, but the boy stood firm. At length, one of the miners cried out to the other, “ now is a good time, lei us go atpi carry oft’ K aty.” Scarcely was the last word pronounced when a \cloud seemed lo pa>s across the face of the boy, and, springing forward, he ran up the cliff with the agility ami apparent safety ol a young ga­ zelle. He fan faster than he did when I had given him the money. What had mcved him ? I enquired shortly afterward of one of the miners, how fie had gofclear ofthe lad. “ The poor innocent!” said he. “ Well, pre­ haps he is as well off as the best-of us.” “ But you would not like to become idiotic like him ? “ No— I would not— especially if I should have any remembrance of what 1 had been.— But the poor boy waked u p o n eday in his cradle in a fit ; so violent was it, ar.d so often did it return, thai he lost his reason almost m infancy. Never, perhaps was a human being so bereli; he seems 10 have little curiosity and no attach­ ment—arleast,al! attachment, all affection ic centered in his mother, whom he calls ‘ K aty,’ and his love for her is adoration ; he sits by the hour and gazes at the poor widow, and then goes and Ihrows himself upon her bos-otn, in an agony of affection. He seems to have some idpa ot devotion, and I have seen him imitate toward her the action of wor.-hippers in the ehnrph. Tfce whole outpouring of the poor boy’s heart is upon h e r ; and his only foar is of injury to h er; and his only joy is attempting to minister to her hnppiness. He is a great an­ noyance to us down here, whither he occasion­ ally wanders—as, knowing nothing of danger 10 himself, he is continually exposed io danger, and the only way we have o f riddmg onr.-el'ves of him is to threaten some injury to ‘ K a ty;’ and tho,ihis threat is repeated as often as he comes, yet he <eems not to doubt its sincerity, and he hastens away to stand guard over his mother, and prevent her abduction.” So, then, the mystery of the boy's retiring so rapidly from the school children to the shanty with his piece of money was explained. He was anxious to make Katy a sharer in his pleas­ ure—give to her the inappreciable wealth which he had acquired. It is n«<t often that the love of mother exceeds the love of God; but He who permitted that shoti-recalling ol intellect will excuse the substitution, and the poor idiot boy may have a reward lor “ honoring his mother,’- when they shall stand rebuked who affect to “ love the Lord with all their hearts.” F o u r Q u e s tio n s to S ilas W tig h t. 1.

Moses Grinqell made a speech, ia which he told the Farmers that if they decided to have l-'ree Trade, he, being an Importer and Shipper, could do well as long as any otre could—for he could supply the New York market with foreign flour at $4 per bbl,and other things iu ptopor- tion.” Upop the above, the B uffalo C ommercial re­ marks : “ Nor is this assertion of Mr. G. unsupported by circumstantial evidence of the most saiislae- lorv character. We have undoubted authority for saying that the wages of wheat growers in the vicinity of Dantzic, in Mecklenburg and Holstein do not exceed 7 pence a day. Iu Sweden the daily wages ot a skilledagncuhnrist are 7d or 9d; while the unskilled obtain no more than 3d or 4d and board them-elves.— Agriculturists in the southern provinces live upon salt fish and potatoes: in the northern provinces porridge and rye bread form thetr food. The serfs of Russia livens cheaply as it is possible to keep a human being, and have him able to work well for his owner. The wheat grown by these northern slaves has already driv­ en American flour from the English markets and would command both Bosion and N. York markets jn a short jieriod were it not for the Whig Tariff of 1S42, which imposes a di'ect tax on foreign wheat of 25 cents a bushel when im­ ported into the United States. Silas Wright then is sadly mistaken when tie says that pro­ tection is of no ail vantage to ihe farmers ol the country. Without it, the competition from Bal­ tic Wheat will soon be far more injurious to American agriculturists, lhan the present influx of South American wool. Indeed, Agricultural Labor, more than all oth­ er branches of productive industry put together, will soon need protection if the wages of rural labor are kept up at 37J cents a day in the State of New York. Twenty thousand bushels ol wheat at 60 lbs. per bushel will oniy weigh 1200 tons. A vessel bringing in wheat from the Bal­ tic at ten cents a bushel to New York, would make $2000 on its outward freight alone, pro­ vided its cargo would weigh 1200 tons. This is the way for every farmer to lo- k at this question : Twenty thousand days labor in wheat, 50,000 days labor in beef, pork, butter and cheese can be put on board of vessels in a Russian, German or Swedish pojn where labor is worth 12 cents a day, and iu 40 days it can be delivered in Boston. Now, without protec­ tion lo the free labor of our farmers, at what price must they sell their honest toil to com­ mand all American markets? Lei every man who has an hour’s work, or its produce front his form to sell, answer this question,” A r t f u l T rick.—A man ol the name of Henry Moore Smith, a mostaccomplished villain, while iu the prison at Kingston, began to spit blood, had a vi'-lent cough and fever, and gradually wasted away, so lhat those who visited him sup­ posed that his death was rapidly approaching. Tilts continued for a fortnight, and his weak­ ness was so great that be had to be lifted up to take medicine or nourishment. A t-arnkey un- fortunaiely left tbe do >r o f the prison open for a few moments; mean while Smith escaped. On being recaptured and again put in prison, he-once more feigned sickness; but at last confessed, that be pretended to raise blood by pounding bricks in to powder, putting ii into a small rag, and chewing it in his mouth.
