FOR THE BALANCE.

IN the year 1637, Judge Crook having a cause to seule concerning ship.money, and being learful of exposing himself to the resentment of a powertul ministry, had determined to give judgment for the king ; but his wife, a woman of true vir. Tue, addressing him in a style of Spartan magnanimity, conjured him no. to erra. gainst his conscience and his honor, for lear of incurring danger or poverty. For herself, she would be conient 10 suffer want or any misery, rather than be the occasion of his acting against his judgment and his conscience..
Crook, ftruck with the exalted fentia ments, and strengthened with the farther encouragements of lo dear and persuasive a friend, altered his purpose, and not coly gave his opinion agaioli the king, but are gued with a n ble boldness and firmness on the side of Law and Liberty.
An Irish print observes that in all cases where a jury of matrons are impanelled, the Fore-man should be a woman of relpectable character.

Gov. Clinton is the moit suitable person on the democratic fide, in the Itate of New-York, for our next president, I do not hesitate to declare, that, as far as rel. peets our commerce, I believe he wonld act with ren times the energy that is mani. fested by our present president. I do not believe that Gov. Clinton is so much a philosopher as to think of prote&ting our commerce with such paltry craft as Gua Boat No. 1, and Gun Boat No. 2, and whirligig guns.
Bui, besides the object of protecting our commerce, there are o her considerations which ought to induce the preference of a northern over a fouthern president.' The designs of Virginia and her fatelites, ought to be counteracted, before they are carried too far for a peaceable corrective. As long as our elections remain tree and pure, we bave a safe and easy remedy lor every evil; but we must be watchful, or intrigue and corruption may render our situation desperate-dissolution and ruin may be the confequence !
An address has larely appeared in the democratic papers of Kentucky, which needs only to be read, to create alarm in the mind of every northern man. After some general remarks, the writer says
