FORD & COL [From the Boston Recorder.! M y F i r s t - B o r n S o n , ’Tis now five years ago, Since God gave tne to know A father’s fondness for a first-born son; Year after year has fled, Till now that Using head Is crowned With dark hair, almost like iny own. Our friends think they can see My son resembles me,— But I could.never that resemblance trace; His mother’s looks I spy— Not in his keen dark eye— But in the features of his full fair face. And 1 do love rny boyr And my heart thrills with joy To see how happy he is day by day; .. To me, no other child E ’er .seemed so sweet and mild, . , Though this, perhaps, a father should not njt A t play, or with his hooks. T h e language of his looks Seems saying that he would do nought a m i s s ; . A n d i f , t h r o u g h m i r t h ’s e x c e s s , , He some times does transgress. He asks my pardon with a tearful kiss. He’s yery tond of rhymes, And asks tne oftentimes To “ write a piece of poetry to print N o w I k n o w I'm no poet — Yet my child does not know it, But thinks my brain must be tho Muse!s mint. He searches books to find Food for his infant mind, And seems to think and ponder much andjong; And always, when he reads, Asks me, as he proceeds, The moral of each narrative and song. W hat my boy yet may bo, I c a n n o t now foresee ;— I gave him up in infancy to God : T h e p r o m ise a ll d i v i n e ,— “ A G o d t o t h e e an d t h i n e ” — Leads me to hope that that availing blood,— Which flowed from Jesus’s veins To wash out guilty stains.

To lands with darkness rife, T o b e a r the L amp of L if e , And show benighted men the Path of Peace ; From this, iny solemn vow, Sealed on his infant brow, I dare not ask— nor do I wish—release. I love lost men too well N o t to send him to tell The perishing, that Christ has died to save; A n d th e r e f o r e — if G o d choose— My boy shall bear the news Of Life, to dying souls across the wave.

O d d I r o n s i d e s . — T h e officers on board this good old ship, bound for the East Indies, have had a delightful trip, and a favorable a nd heal­ thy passage, up to the last dates, w h ich. have been duly given in this paper, They write in fine spirits, and if we mistake not. some of lhe journals which the most industrious among them are keeping, and of which we have incidentally heard, will furnish many interesting and instruc­ tive details upon the return of the frigate. The good ship was leaving Zanzibar at the last ac- counts, and we have been permitted tocopy the following extract from a private letter by one of the officers to a relative in this city, dated from that island: “Zanzibar contains a population of 30.000 souls mostly black, of the darkest hue, someria- tives of Hindostan, and a few Arabs, who are lords of the soil. The Sultan owns, besides this Island, the east coast of Africa ns far as Persia, and has a fleet of men of war. “ W h ile engaged the other day in sketching the front of the tm a u m ’s P a lace, w h o should pop out from.behind an orange tree, but the chief ofthe eunuchs! H e was an Abyssinian slave, but a handsom e well dressed you n g man, en tirely d ifferent from m y preconceived notions of a chief eUnUch. I imagine you thing he Was an u gly old black rascal, “H e was no such thing, but a smiling, courte­ ous young m?n, who sent a . . . . a n d >5reen little m g g e r for cocoa nuts, ahd cutting off the tops presented each ®f us with-about a pint of the most cool and refreshing beverage contained in them. You would have been amused with our dinner at the Sultan’s the other day. It was literally a feed in presence of his Highness and the Court, as of course the Mahometans could not eat’ with infi­ dels. The table was .completely covered with viands— thiee goats roasted whole were sur­ rounded by the most barbaric profusion of fruit, fowls, preserves, fritters, custard, rice, &c., all cooked after the Arab fashion; no wine of course but goblets of rose waters. “The feast wound up with some delicious Mocha coffee, sweetened with sugar candy, foi lowed by a goblet of cocoa-nut milk. IVe were waited on by Abyssinian eunuchs, arrayed in the most oriental style, each dressed in white turban and white tunic with a superb dagger stuck in the beli; the old chief looked on and smiled benig- nantly.”— [Boston Transcript. D a n ie l W ebster and h is P urch a s e r s . — W e are pleased to find that there is one whig who looks upon the creation of the Webster fund in its proper light. A coriespondent ofthe Cincinnati Gazette, an influential w hig paper in an article headed “ Webster bought up,” justly characterises the transaction as ‘wholesale bri­ bery’ and says: ‘we are getting back to the times of George II, or of Lord Bacon, if such things as this afe approved by leading moral papers of any party.” He adds; “This is the third time Mr. ’Webster has been bought— twice before has the mocey been paid him — now the purchasers have learned wisdom and put it in trust.’’— [Tioy Budget. . Tiie Mother and Iier Family. Philosophy js rarely found. T h e most per­ fect sample I ever .met, was an' old woman who was' apparently the poorest and the most forlorn of the human species,'—so true is the maXim which all profess to believe, and none act upon invariably, viz: that happiness does not depend on outward circumstances. T h e wise ..women to whom 1 have alluded, walks to Boston, a dis-_ tanee of twenty or thirty miles* to sell a bag ol brown thread and stockings, and then patiently walks back with her little gain. H e r dress, .though tidy, is a grotesque collection of 'shreds and patches1-—coarse in thp extreme. ‘Why don’t you come down in a wagon said T, when I observed she was wearied with her long journey. ‘W e havn’t got any horse,’ she repled ; ‘the neighbors are very kind to me, but they can’t spare their’n, and it would costas much as my thread would come to.’ ‘Y o u have a husband— d o n ’t h e do a n y thing for you V {H e is a good man— he does al! he can, blit he’s a cripple and an invalid.

They are all heal­ thy children as need to be all willing to work, and all clever to me. Even the litllest boy, when he gets a cent now and then, for doing an errand, will be sure to bring it to me.’ ‘Do your daughters spin your thread?’ ‘No ma’am; as sdor, as they are big enough,, they go out to service, as I don’t want to keep them always delving for me; they are. always willing to give me what they can; but it’s fair that thev should do a little for themselves. I do all my spinning after the folks are abed.’ ‘Don’t you thipk you should be better of! if you had no one but yourself to provide for ?’ ‘Why, no, ma’am, I don’t. If I hadn’t been married, I should had to work as hard as I could, and now I can’t do more than that.’ My children are a great comfort to me, and I lqok forward to the time w h e n they’ll do as m u c h for m ens I’ve done for them.’ Here was true philosophy!

It whs one/day when I was about 7,years o f - age, after an unusual bustle in the family man-* Sion, and my being arrayed in a black frock, much to my inconvenience, in the hot m om h'df August, that I was told my asthmatic old uhcle had gone >off like a lamb, and that I was heiress often thousand per annum. ,Ttis.in?ormalidrtr given with an, air of infinite importance, maider, no,very great impression upon me at the time} and, in spitp of circumstance being regularly dwelt on, by m y F rench governess at Campdbti House, after every henious misdemeanor, I had thought little or nothing on the subject, till, a t the age of eighteen, I was called on to bid adieu tp L evizac and pirouettes, and hear uncle’s w ill fead by my guardian. - It appears that my father and uncle, though brothers, had wrangled and jangled through life and that,the only subject on which they ever greed, was supporting the dignity ofthe Vavas­ our family; that, in a moment of unprecedented unison, they had determined that, as the title fell to my cousin E d g ar, and the estates to me, to keep both united in [he family* we should toar- fy. Ahd it seemed, w hichever p arty violated these precious conditions was actually depend-* ant on the other for hiead and butter. W h en I first heard or this arrangement, I blessed my* self, and Sir E d g a r cursed himself. Apassion* ate overbearing-, dissolute young ntan, thought I, for a husband, for the husband of ah orphati -~of a girl who has not a nearer relation than himself in the world, who has no father to ads vise her, no mother to support hfer ; a professed rake,, too, who will merely view me as an in­ cumbrance On his estate; who will think rid. love, no confidence, no respect due to me; who will insult my feelings, deride my sentiments} and wither with unkindness the best affectioni pf my nature. N o ! I concluded, as m y consti* tutional levity returned, I have the greatest poss sibie respect for guardians, revere their office* and tremble at their a u thority; but make toy* self wretched merely to please them— No! ntfi I positively cannot think of it. W ell, time who is no respector of persbns went on.

M y 0 - liniori; I found was not to be asked. A titled lusband was procured for tne, and I was to take iim and be thankful. I \vas.musing on my singular situation w hen a thought struck me—* can I not see him, and judge of, his Character, unsuspected by hjtnself. This -is the season when he pays an anual visit to my gbd-mother; why not persuade her to let me visit her incog f T h e idea, s trange as it was, was instantly acted on • and a w e e k saw me at V a le R o y a l, to alt appearance a girl of no pretensions pr expecta* tions, and avowedly dependent on a distant retor­ tion. To this hour, I remember my heart beating: audibly, as 1 descended to the dining room, —■■ where I was to see, for the first time, the future' arbiter of my fate; and I shall never forget my surprise, when a pale, gentlemanly, and rather' reserved young man* in apparent ill health, wa* introduced to me for the noisy, dissolute, distrac­ ting and distracted baronet.

Can seeing her again and again,’* re­ turned he, “ever reconcile me to her manners,- habits and sentiments, or any estates induce raff to place at the head of m y table, a humpback bas,Hue in green spectacles ?” “Hump-backed?” “Yes, from her cradle.— .But you color.

See your cousin. Y o u will find your-- self mistaken.

My cue was taken.— W ith a largo pair of green spectacles on my nose, in a darkened room, I prepared for this tremendous interview. After hems and hah s innumerable, and with contusion the most dis­ tressing to himself, and the most amusing tome, he gave me to understand he could not fulfill the engagement made for him, and regretted that it had ever been contemplated. “N o ! no!” safid Ij iff ft voice ihat made him start, taking off m y g r e e n spectacles w ith a profound courtesy— v‘NoJ no! it is preposterous to suppose that S ir Edgar Vavasour would ever connect himself with an ill-bred, awkward, hump backed girl.” Exclamations and explanations, laughter and raller'ies, interm ixed with more serious feelings* followed; but the result ofall w as— that—that— that we w ere married.
