term, we i ffei areas follows: That the 
country i..,v, occupied by your 

continue is y »ur : n, bui 

.. the boundary sn- 

cr d, and not, at any time, or for any 

is our best plan to accept, and we ma] which had not learned to weep; how. 

deem ourselves blessed that we have 

the opportunity. Look around and sec 

the many nations, which, while we arc 

iged in war with Carthage, and ean 

aol turn our arms against theni, have 

'.ecu becoming bolder and bolder, and 
begin to encroach upon our rights as 

well as those of our allies. And, when 
We have remonstrated With them, they 
have laughed and threatened us with 

war, knowing that, by joining with 
Carthage, they could do us a great in- 
jury. Lei us come to terms of peace 
with Carthage for a short time, and, in 
the meanwhile, chastise these rebellions 
spirits, and prepare tor a final Struggle 
with our old enemy. Our allies wlil 
soon abandon us if wc allow them to be 
•larra-sed and attacked with impunity, 
and, Seeing that We can not defend 

hem, will break the bond of union 

which now binds us together, and de- 
sert our ranks for i' ur enemy. 

3rd Sun.— -Those who have watched 

the progress of the war know well that 
it has Ie, m uncommonly severe, audits 
ihlCOOSS nearly cpial, and must feel a 
qonhl iii their minds, whether we shall 
finally be victorious. It the war dues 
lid now, but is again renewed, 
the two powerful nations mutt 
fill, ami it may he Rome. And, if 
there is a doubt of our success, let us 
not risk our present glory, honor, and 

I'cen considered as heros in former 

days. The Senators say that the treas- 

urj is empty. Who cares for that, while 

tizens possess anything of value. 

H ho would not contribute it to further 
the glory ofRoine? Who wosld with- 
hold his last farthing in BUch a cause? 
It there be any. may they never, ii 
life, enjoy i lie ble&Mngg of liberty and 
glory, and, when they depart, may 

the)' be dooi 1 to dwell with those 

who inhabit the damp snbteranoan re- 

of Pinto, where the light fr< m 

the Klysian fields never enter, nor its 

joys ari nown. It is said that 

von can accept the proposed terms 

ivith honor; but is this really the i 
I would ask you to refer to the f>.

with Carthage upon other terras, will it 
not be confessing that we have under- 
taken a labor which we could not ac- 
complish? Win it not bring dishonor' 
upon the Roman name, and disc 
upon her a; n: -? Will the neighboring 
nations respect her amis longer, when

and that she must: allow a rival? Will

and be restrained at her command? — 
Will her allies love and be tuithfu], •'

your duly; if you wish to behold Rome

province after province, until the world 
owns her sway, and hows before her 
eagles, you will not hesitate to i eelare 
for the continuance of the war. If, in

success of the struggle, and to enjoy

For tin- Seminary Bon 

There are spots upon the lace of the 
earth, the mention of whose name i- 
iept to excite, the interest of the 
student and antiquary. A city buried 
icneath the lava of sonic volcanic 
mountain, or filled WUh the ruins o 1 
some distinguished works of art, speak- 
to him of ancient times. Perhaps he 
las read of her glory and power which 
iave departed from her forever. NoWj 
igh forgotten by mankind at large. 
IQr name brings hack to his uiim! her 
i res tine condition. Not the presenl 

docs he sec, hut he icim. inboi s llic past. 

But, if we glance over the earth, we 

can find a few places which i. 

particular class, but touch a feelii 

■ ml in the bosom of all. Some fa 
:n ais deed, upon which depended the 
destinj of ooming generations, perhaps 

has been achieved there, or legends 

have oast about it, a dim and mysteri- 
ous cloak, throngh whoaa folds only 
the vague outlines can he seen, while 

the rest is veiled in clouds. \ le 

wishes to dispel the mist which hovers 
over it, for when that has cleared up, 

nothing remains to give it alt tact ion. 
If both of these oausea arc combined 
in one (pot, the attention ol the whole 
human race is drawn in that direction. 
and fastens upon the halo of glory 
which rests upon it, and which inn 
ing ages can dissipate. 

The Rhine, from her source to her 
month, has been the scene of some re 
nowned action m 

her hanks have been acted some trag- 
edies wh eh have influenced the fate of 
Europe and the world; But her scene- 
ry alone, would be suflicient. She takes 
her rise among the mountains of Swit- 
zerland, and at her commencement, 
waters the land of a free and industri 
ous people. Small at fir>t, she rapidly 
increases in size, and soon becomes the 
tic l.'hine. She sweeps on throngh 
i tile fields of Belguiin, and scenes 
of rare and unsarpasslng beauty. Ai 
times rough and bo'tSteroOS, she roars 
amid rocks, and dashes wildly on her 
mad course, then gently and smooth as 
the surface of a mirror. She seems to 

pause to take broatfa, and hesitate.- to 

lake another plunge. Now, the hank- 
arc low and gently sloping; too slight 
harriers to contain the waters within Iur 

bosom, when the Alps poms down its 
a- of ico and suow upon the val- 
lies below. Then some beetling preci- 
pice juts over the stream, against which 

the currents strike with mighty force, 
and heat the march ol time. When 
the low, marshy grounds ol 
Holland, nature no longer could con 
trol her; hut breaking over her natu 
ral boundaries, she would have hurst 
i flood, and inundated the surroun 
ding country, if art had not put forth 
an aiding hand. Widening and deep- 
ening as she ucars the ocean, she at 
length pours in through numerous 


For beauty and variety of sconery, 

the Rhine can not he surpassed by any 

n in the world. But when we 

consider how intimately she has been 

i with the history of Eui 

(he days of Koine's ascendency, 
we can not fail to perceive \\\o reason 
that she exerts such a power over the 
minds of men. The Roman army, in 
search of people t" conquer, and victo- 
ries lo gain, oft pitched their camp up- 
on h"r hanks. How nohly the natives 
longht I i retain possession of their'ul inheritance, and when com- 
lish it they slowly and 
-ullenly retired, giving innumerable 
battles to their invincible foe. 
Here Oajsar hd his conquering le 

,'ioiis, and gained that experience and 
military knowledge, which alicrward> 
made him the arbiter of Rome. Prom 
-fore to shore he built Mint bridge, 8<i 
(anions in ancient times, and a descrip- 
tion oi which astonishes and excite; 
the admiration ol the present genera- 
tion. In after years, when Koine was 
oii the decline, the barbarians of the 
north, moving southward to the warm 
regions of Italy, met her near her 
mouth, and followed up idoiig hci 

banks, to where she lost herself amid 

the Alps. Here liny loft Icr, and toil 
ing up the mountainous range, poureo 
i heii mighty hosts upon the peaceful 
villages of Italy. But although slu 

lireotcd the course ol some of the 
tribes who crushed life 1 out of Rome, 
is still remained the same as be- 

Attracted bythefertile soil and beau- 
tiful prospect, and wearied of their 
long journey, the barbarians settled 
along her hanks, ;l nd took possession 

of the neighboring country. In the 
lovely vallies of the Rhine, the- climate 

of the land of their adoption, soon 

made them forget the cold and bleak 
■'gion where nothing fiie I their love, 
Merc they flourished, while feudalism 
i roqde its w \y through Qcrm-tty, 
and over the Alps, into these pi ncet'ul 
province-;. Soon, from her source. 
along her whole course, there was erec- 
ted a line of castles wherever a conve- 
nient spot COIlld be found. Upon eve- 
ry overhanging hank, in every vaie, 
rose a lordly mansion. Amid every 
grove could be seen a tall tower, with 
its spire pointing to the sky, And, il 
Veil eould have stood upon Some lofty 
hill, and glanced around over the ex- 
tensive regions, tower, spire, and cas- 
tle, Would have met the eye, wherever 
it was turned. No landscape Ot* scene 
would have presented its. If without a 
IlllgO Castle constituting one of its chid 
and grand features. Here the old liar 
una devete, never issuing forth, except 
upon a hunting or war expedition.— 
Plie tenants, even, compelled, at the 

voice of their lord, to arm themselves, 
ami battle in his cause, so that he was 
king in his small domain. Oft have 
'hey met iii deadly combat, and fought 
will desperation, till the valley ran red 
with blood. If the Rhine possessed 
die power of speech, many a tale of 
bloodshed and horror could she tell. — 
Shf lias witnessed many a meeting of 
nii-ii in arins.o! which history does not 

speak and tradition has forgotten u> 

-ing. As her waters moved along, they 
have borne to the sea many a groan, 
:, caved from the breast of the wound- 
ed and dying soldier, and the lamenta- 
tion of friends around his inanimate 
body. She could tell many a revolting 
tale of cruelty and hard-heartedness 
enacted upon her borders, where there 
was no witness to report and in- 
lotiii, and which none knew, save God, 

thelniinite and Eternal. She has heard 
many a shout and cheer, as the foe rush- 
ed together, and in their grapple fell 
struggling together, to be swallowed up 
within her dark and placid bosom. — 
Often has I upon the shining 

lances of a troop, .is til y issued from 
their leaders castle, and took their 
march along her, in search ol' cpnqnest 
and plunder. And When they return- 
ed, laden With spoil, she beheld their 
-pears reflect the rays of the setting 
sun. Oft has she heard the slow toll- 
ing bell, as it called the monks and nuns 
to their devotions, pealing forth sud- 
denly, and breaking the silence which 
had settled around, or as it tolls the 
knell of the departed it falls mournful- 
ly and solcmly upon the ear of the dis- 
tant shepherd. Many a band, oblivious 
of private animosities and hereditary 
feuds, which nothing less could have 
reconciled but every net increased, 
gctl'ul of their duties and interests, wil- 
lingly abandoning their families and 
Iricnds, ami leaving their native coun- 
try, came marching through her glens, 
on their way to the land ol Palestine, 
to aid their Christian brethren in the 
recovery of the sepulchre of the Koun- 
Icr of their common religion. Ami 
when a few years after nsmall remnant 
of those noble bands returned, she wel- 
comed them back again to their homes 
and their families. Yes, often did their 
thoughts revert to her, while they were 
suffering in thai far off distant land, 
and many a dying soldier weepiing, 
spoke of his happy homo upon the 
Khine, which he was destined never to 
«ee again. 

The beauty of her land has not de- 
parted. Although those old heroes have 
gone to their rest, their shades seem 

io haunt i\,j (.lac- h-Jii <•■ l/n-v dwelt, 

and bring back the ghost-like appear- 
ance of the days of feudalism. Those 
1)1(1 castles yet stand, "like sentinels of 
tin enchanted land." Noble and impos- 
ing amiJ their ruins, they give an ad- 
ditional beauty to the lovely scenery. 
Many of them have been for a long 
lime deserted, and now serve as places 
if resort for bauds of robbers, to hold 
their secret conclaves and secret their 
spoils, or beings of another world to 
hold their midniglll revels. One needs 
but hear the wind whistle through the 
■racks, and the water dash with its 
hoarse, angry sound against the 
base of an old castle, to people it with 
every kind of imagining beings, and 
make him feel that he is surrounded by 
the spirits of the ancient proprietors. 
Legend upon legend has spuing up, 
a Ii itii throws a halo ol enchant incut. 
around them, and enshrouds them in 
mystery. No wonder that they arc ob- 
jeets of so much curiosity, to travelers 
from every. quarter of the globe, and 
give so much attraction to the region 
about the Khine, As long as man re- 
spects and honors courage and manly 
virtue; as long as he loves to behold 
the beautiful and sublime ill nature ; as 
long as he take delight in looking up- 
on scenes famous in the hi -lory of the

With this month] we offer to tho pub- 
lic tlio first number of "The Seminary 
Bell." Although, according to nature's 
laws, every plant, which commences to 
atesolatein the season, will be fee- 
ble, ami sickly, and come to a suddeb 
death from the cold, yet wc feel con- 
II dent that this germ will grow, until it 
hea over an extensive tract of coun- 
try, cherished by its contributors, and 
warmed by its subscribers. The inter- 
est, felt in the bosom of every one for 
its success, will keepoffthe chilling 
ami deadening influences of apathy, sp 
that it will, not only Baryive the wint- 
er's C >ld, but., at the end, will comfi 
forth, more beautiful and flourishing 
than ever, ready, when Bpr'uig comes, 
; . herald its arm .'. 

As it has been taken in hand by the 
ity, and will be carried on by the 

members, it- will 1 mo a permanent 

thing 10 continue as long as this insti- 
tution endures. And, to make it last' 
ing, it is necessary to establish it upon 
a solid foundation, Wo think this has 
hern don* tO some extent, while it re- 
mains for the present committee to ev- 
ert themselves, in order to leave it in n 
flourishing condition. Some may real 
that it will end in a failure, an it will bo 
compelled to keep passing through dif- 
ferent hands, and be under the super- 
vision of different Committees; but we 
would say, that, although tho present 
members may leave gradually, there 
will bo others continually coming, who 
will be amply competent to continue its 
publication. Tt will be handed down, 
as it were, from generation to genera- 
tion, and, as each generation is consid- 
ered to be wiser than tho proceeding, 
having their experience to guide them 
it must undergo continual improve- 
ments. The inheritance, being thus be- 
queathed to them, would alone (if noth- 
ing else would inspire them,) induce 
them to emulate their predecessors, and 
sustain the reputation of tho society 
and the institution. Thus it can bo 
seen that every thing conspires toward 
making it sure and abiding. 

While those, who succeed us. may 
make improvement*, wo do not in i end 
to be remiss, and leave every thing of 
this kind to them. As this is our first 
issue, we wero not capable 6f judging 
how it Would look after being pub 

fished, and, consequently; may make 
some alterations in its four) and ar- 
rangement The matter itself will be 
somewhat different in each publication ; 
but each change will bo for the belter. 
We do not intend to lower its standard. 
but each inch it gains, shall be bravely 
held, until it can take another step for- 

It will be filled, mainly, with origin- 
al compositions, essays, a short t, 
casionally, ifco. In eaoli number, therfe 
will be a summary of the news of the 
mouth preceding its issue, where, in 
the shortest space possible, will he giv- 
en what generally fills most of two pa- 
ges in a weekly paper. There will al- 
so appear occasionally au article in ref- 
erence to the Seminary, and what wc 
are doing here, which will doubtless 
interest most of our readers. We in- 
tend to start and sustain a department 

for those who love to dive into the mys- 
teries of figures, Sea: In this, will be 
published problems, enigmas, puzzles, 
conundrums, which we desire to have 
solved, and the answer returned. The 
first answer that reaches us, will entitle 
its author to have his or her name prin- 
ted along with the solution. We hope 
that the votaries of mathematics will 
take advantage of the opportunity thus 
offered them, and come boldly forward, 
It will be entirely Unnecessary to men 
tion tho different departments, as they 
can be seen by retcring to the paper, 
but we will say, that others will be 
formed as wc. Bee the necessity. Wc 
believe in continual progression, Snd 
shall do every thing in our power to 
make our work prove our faith. 

We will, allow nothing to pass into 

our paper, which, in OUTeyeS has ,-, see 

tarian appearance, bill shall exclude it 
without hesitation. If we intended to 
make it a herald of the principles el n 
particular sect) and an advocate 
loot i im •, then b >■ would lill it entirely 
with such matter: but as this is no! 
our object, a person of any sect may 
look and examine, but fail to find any 

thing, at which he can take exception. 
\ el tho main features, those which are 
common to all orthodox beliefs, will, at 
any time, bo admitted, if the piece 
meets with our concurrence. For, if 
wc should keep these: entirely from our 

paper, We would shut out all morality. 

and whatever ennobles degenerate man. 
Siorality will always find a place, and 
an advocate in us: while immorality, 
and every thing thai, tends to demoral- 
ize the young, and bring disgrace and 

ruin upon their after life, will, not only 
be rejected, but discountenanced. 

No political party will have a chance 
to claim it as an orgat to advoci | 

assist the election of their can'd 
for we shall adjure all such subjects 
from the commencement; but shall al- 
ways be ready to lift up our voice for 
liberty, equality, education, free insti- 
tutions, and whatever has a tendency 
to improve the condition ot mankind, 
and increase their comfort and happi- 
ness. Our paper shall be that of the 
people, and their rights will be regard- 
ed. And, to subserve their interests in 
the best possible manner, we shall not 
agitate the much disputed questions, 
which, if left alone, would, of their own 
accord, eventually and even sooner, be

ory which would havo aided very mate- 
rially, but which have to be dispensed 
with. The next dny the preparations be 
gin in earnest. Early in ihe morning, 
long before the peep of dawn, arc the 
young folks astir, busily performing Ibe 
Co m mo 11 duties ol household lite, so that 
nothing may prevent them from devoting 
the whole day to the desired purpose. As 
daylight begins to brighten the eastern 
horizon, the table is spread beneath the 
porch around which soon cluster the joy • 
011s faces of the happy family, Not one 
sad and gloomy face is seen, but joy 
beams forth from etery one, both uld and 

young. As soon as Ihe meal is partaken 
of and tho table cleared, then all hands 
old enough to take part, begin to perform 
Ihe shara allotted to thetn. The mother 
is everywhere, in order to oversee all the 
prepi rations, tor lear some slight mistake 
might be made which would end in the 
rum of the forthcoming article, render- 
ed important by the constrquencn of her 
'dico and the prompt obedience given lo 
her every command. While those who 
are too young to lend a helping hand 
look on with sparkling eyes, wntching 
every motion that is made and tearful 
that something wnuld be said or done 
Which Ihey would not hear or see. Their 
youthful prattle is heard above the uin 
of spoons and glasses asking some 1 
tion about something which presents a 
very myftnnus appearance lo them. —

the broad disc of the heavens, muttering 
somethineahoul going without dinner all 
day. At last the much wished lor signal 
is heard, and every hand ceases simulta- 
neously. The first sight thai greets their 
vision, as they enter the house, is the 
Store of pics and cakes piled up in 
awltil array upon the side-board. How 
their mjapths water in anticipation of tha 

r dinner has been dispatched, the 
boys receive notice that the turkeys and 
chickens are now to be slaughtered. — 
One runs for ihe axe, while the other has- 
tuns to bring the long detained prisoners 
to tho place of excution. No mercy is 
shown, but one alter another falls a sac- 
rifice beneath tho death-dealing guillo- 
tine. Blood (lows like water, while on every 
side the aspiring victims, gasping in their 
last agony, flutter around, Mh to yield 
in the unequal struggle. It tak"s but a 
short time to arrange them, so tha! on the 
morrow they may be got ready upon a

As the eve of the eventful day draws 
near, a carriage and then another is st-en 
wending its way toward the old larm- 
hous, where, upon its arrival, the 
pants are heartily welcomed by the fam- 
ily and conducted to lbs b«st room. — 
They came not unexpected, for they had 
been invited to help keep thanksgiving; 
a son, perhaps, who has left home to 
open o road to fortune by hi* own exer- 
loos, or a daughter, who, a lew yeara be- 
fore with a father's blessing, had gone to 
grace another's mansion. They spend 
the evening in happy communion, and 
retire early so as lo rise in good season.

press the meaning of that momeutnus 
word, education. Like tlio apple that 
hangs upon the oak, lair, round and 
beautiful in its external appearance, but 
devoid of substance within, they serve 
as A ni"i'<; outward show, a cloak to

Education draws forth latent ener- 
gies which, without its stimulating pow

es the noblest purpose of the bou! to 
a high standard of elevntii n, and 
trains with vigilant care every branch

the woild's chaotic ocean of untutored 
thought, and reveals its many beauties 
to the enraptured gaze of the admirer. 
It bursts "iien the rocky encasement.
