The following singular circumstances
are related by ft correspondent of the
Lockport, (N. Y.) Courier:
When I was a boy, and lived upon

1 put on a clean smrt, clean rags on my
sore toe and considered myself dressed up,
as usual, and went to training without a
cent of money. A little after noon I saw
a boy with half a card of gingerbread
and a water-melon, sitting In a fence-cor
ner eatine ; and stopped, and ' stood look
ipg through the fence at him, with my
mouth watering, lie saw me, and invit
ed me over to eat witn Mm. 1 did so.
He wanted to know my name, I told him
and he told me his, and we went together
the rest of the afternoon
' " Well, time went on ; I grew up. left
die place of my nativity, ana went into
business on my own account,and thought no
more of the matter until twenty years had
passed away, when, having business at

you wero in old Sheffield ; but now I am
in tribulation ; I have had to leave there
auddenly for Canada 5 I am out of money
and must have a ahilling to pay my fer
riage across the river."
I handed him the money; he thanked
me and started off. It did not seem pot.
aible that he had come 10 ihat. I hailed
him, and he came back to me, and I aek
ed him if ho had any money to get any.

" No, not a cent, was mo repiy. 1 gave
him another thilling, and told him lliere

and kicked me out of his field, when I
was a boy.
" Don't mention it, for God s sake,
said ho bursting into tears "you hare

The prophecy of my mother flashed
across my mind, as I stood looking after
him, with feelings more of sorrow than
ano-or. He was soon out of sight, and
I never saw him mote, for he died soon
after, as 1 learned, at Port Delhousie,
Two days after, 1 1 had business at
Yougstown, and while wailing- for break

man, who asked me a few questions about
the Niaeara River and the town, and
whether there wa any conveyance to
Fort Niagara. ' I told him that as soon
as breakfast waa over I should drive down,
and he could ride with roe if he chose

Hon of old Sheffield. I told him I was
formerly from there, and we compared
notes and found that we were the very
same two boys that eat the ginger-bread
and water-melon in the fence corner, in
old Canan.on a eeneral training day, near
ly 20 vears since. I came to the conclu.
sion then, taking, my experience of the
last two days into account, that there is
a divinity that shapes our ends, rough
hew them as we may."
The nn sli Westward The .Fuss
about ItThe Result.
The constant and immense emigration
from the olden States, East, North, and
South, for the lust few years, seems finally
have awakened great ularm in the
minds of the guardians on the watchtowers
of their country's best interests, and forth
with the cry of bankruptcy and starvation
in the Went, has boen sounded and re
echoed throughout the length and breadth
of the Union, from Ocean to river and
from river to Ocean, from rostrum, pulpit
and editorial pen. The public have been
warned that the people of the west are
starving, their lands fail to produce, their
stock freeze in the winter; their cities and
towns are becoming deserted and dilapi
dated ; their lands are up to extrnvigant
prices to the ruin and bankruptcy of tnope
who have invested in lands or town lots.
That the country is in every way overdone
nd must inevitably engulph in a whirlpool
of ruin all who are connected with the
Western Interests, pecuniarily.
Now, let us look a little deeper intolnis
matter and enquire into the cause of this
treat hue and cry against "going West,"
what are the arguments against the change
of domicil from Last to V est, who are the
scare crow' parties, and what their object.
The newspaper press complains mat tne
eastern States are becoming depopulated;
that the money is all going to he West;
that the high price of their lands are thus
beinff depreciated; that roanuiactures are
declining ; that the price of. labor is auvan
cing, and that io fact their most intelligent,
skillful and industrious population is thus
bein? drawn oil.
Now. the case is a plain one tJ us: all
the real and tangible objections seem to bo
simply, a view to the cood and prosperity
of the country from whence emigrant are
removing, whiUt little is cared for the good,
the welfare, or the advancement of those
whom they would deter from bettering
their conditions. Capitalists and ruanu
faciurers wish to profit by their labor ; mer
chants and tradesmen wish to keep them
for customers and consumers. Ministers
require them to swell their congregations
and contributions, and editors must nave
subscribers at home for their papers and
patronage for their advertising columns.
This, then, ia the real cause of all the
great bugbear atones of starvation, bank
ruptcy aod ruin that has of late been re'
verberated all over the country.
The truth in regard to the West it quick
Iv told. The prairie country was never in
so flourishing, no healthful, ao hopeful, so
prosperous a condition as at tuts moment.
The hue and cry of interested parties
against migrations here have been neard,
laughed at, forgotten. Towns and cities
are rapidly being reared, and wide agri
cultural districts are being epeaed. Man-
! ufarmrcs an4 omme to are increasing t
an eitent that surprises belief. Men of
energy, sense, discretion and good judg
ment, have not been effected by the great
noise against the West; buthavo invested
their monies, whilst the poor and laboring
hare spent their strength; and the result
is a vast trade; populous and busy cities
and villages; numerous herds ofstockand
crops of grain and vegetables, far surpass
ing that of any previous year since the
settlement of the country. We have lived
in this far western land now about ten
years in which we have felt the discom
fort of two hard winters the two last
With this exception, wo have a most de
lightful climate. The soil is rich, produc
tive and easy of cultivation as was ever
turned by a plowshare ; water the most
pure and abuudant; timber in reasonable
supply and rapidly increasing in quantity t
useful and valuable minerals; navigable
rivers, and every facility for building rail
roads ; and, in fact, every necessary ingre
diant for one of the most prosperous coun
tries on the globe. The elements of its
greatneu are within itself and only re
quires the arms of the steardy yeomanry,
the miner, the mechanic, the artisan, the
laboring man and the capitalist, to hasten
and mature its development. , , ,
Who dare say that before two score years
shall roll around, the Capitol of the Union
will not loom up above the bluff's of the
Missouri. It is destiny. It will be so.
The poverty of Eastern lands and the nar
rowness of tho country is becoming too
perceptible to close one's eyes against the
facts: and the great stream that divides
the Ameri-an Continent, mid way, will
yet boast of huge cities upon her banks,
that will be central marts of commerce on
this continent. Upon the amount of ground
required to produce one bushel of grain ia
the East, we can easily make three here.
Then why will not lands in tho West bo
really worth as much or more than Eaau.

pleted and we have a market for our pro
