“FOR THE PILOT.
        "The moon had just risen above the highest hill, on a beautiful evening in May, and the nightingale, sweet songstress of the grove, had began to tune her cheerful lays, when I walked out of my cottage to enjoy the pleasures afforded by the objects around me.  The beautiful prospect of a lake expanded in front of the village before me, the handsome farms that bordered on the lake, the towering forest a small distance back, the tall spire of the church that glittered profusely in the beams of the new risen moon, and a full view of an elegant mansion which overlooked the whole lake and village, where objects too pleasing not to be enjoyed by one fond of rural scenes and rural life.  The waters discharged from the lake, ran roaring over a dam, the lowing of kine and their responsive young, the bleating of sheep and their tinkling bells, with their discordant notes filled the ear, and conspired with the prospect presented to the eye, to fill my mind with the most agreeable sensations.
        “Lovely village, said I to myself, as I walked along on the banks of the lake agitated with a slight breeze, is this the spot which a few years since, was the abode of savage beasts and men more savage still than they?  As I spoke, a band of music struck up a lively tune, which made a sweet contrast to the melody of the groves and fields.  I paused, I stopped, at the melodious sound.  Is this, methought, an enchanted spot, or am I actually in a Paradise surpassing Eden of old?  What a beautiful prospect do I behold, what soul-enrapturing sounds do I hear?  Had I the genius of a Shakespear, or the imagination of a Thompson, this sequestered spot should be immortalized by my lay, or if I proposed the descriptive powers of Sterne, it should be immortalized in a story. – Here the majesty of the forest has bowed to the arm of man, and those lengthy bridges, those useful mills, numerous machines, neat cottages, elegant mansions and that tall spire, attest to the industry, taste, wealth and religious character of the villagers.  Happy, thrice happy, said I, are such a people.  Under the freest, happiest and best form of government in the whole world, living on the richest soil beneath the sun, enjoying the blessings of Heaven never vouchsafed before to man since he left the garden of Eden; can such a people repine at their highly favored lot?  At that instant of time a number of boisterous fellows passed by me blaspheming the name of God and cursing the general government.  Their bitter imprecations and horrid oaths, interrupted my pleasure, and I returned to my cottage.
        “Such, said I, is the state of thankless man, ever restless, he overlooks the greatest blessings while he possesses them, and like the cock that found a diamond, considers them of no value.

“Communication.  Trustees of Cazenovia Village – Our village has been incorporated almost a year, and I regret to say, that the Trustees are very remiss in their duty. – They have, to be sure, gotten a Fire Engine upon trial, which would, if kept in repair, would answer a tolerable good purpose – and they did appoint men to compose a Fire Company to manage said Engine – and I am authorized to say, that not more that one half of the fire company now reside within the limits of the incorporation, and that those that are residents, are obliged to make the necessary repairs to the engine, or let it go without, as the Trustees have raised no money to defray such like expenses.  I ask, are not the Trustees considered in the act of incorporation as fire-wardens? whose duty it is to expel confusion and direct the united exertions of the citizens.  Did they do this at the late fire?  Did they attempt to organize any portion of the citizens? – Did more that two or three of the Trustees, whom we have elected to serve us, appear even as neighbors, to lend a helping hand?  Our Trustees ought to consider, that the well organization and concert at a fire, depends in a great measure the safety of life and property (sic).  We have all seen the want of fire-buckets, fire-hooks and ladders; and will the Trustees direct by virtue of their authority, the villagers to supply themselves with buckets, and procure hooks and ladders for the safety of village in time of fire?  A BURGHER.”
