The \vnipplnß-Po*t.
BT D. T. SMITH.
Wt.»t a pictar* is ihis just revealed to our view,
Which a limner from Tophet most certainly drew :
For the brush of an artist who lives on the eirth,
Could uerei- bave given su:-h horrors a birth !
Thoro itatds till Tile post, with Its bands aud its
chains,
Embracing a victim who wiithcs with tb*palns, .
That a monster inflicts, who, savage and strong.
Applies without nioiry the blood-l.tling throng !
The flesh and th. muscles, in spite of his groans,
Are pountlod and hacked till thoy peel from thebonei;
While the victim, that God In His own Image maoe,
For Justice from man has meat earnestly prayed !
And around him a crowd of poor mortals we see,
Who appear tn be holding a grand jubilee ;
They dance and exult as the demons are said.
To rovel and .bout o'er the tnar.es of the dead I
A little bohind then., most calm and serene,
A jnlgo oo his bench is enjoying the scene ;
His ermine like that which a Jeffries once wore,
When he deluged his country with innocent gore!
The robe ofthe Senate —how sadly aomsod!
To curtain the picture the painter has ÜBed ;
But In'tead of Its glowing with purity's sheen
The stain of oipreaslon upon it is seen !
The brain of no novice that picture designed ;
The whole's the work *f a grand master mind, I
That was taught and inspired, was nurtured and
trained
By him whos* robellion the heavens has stained.
Tis time that we banish such pictures obsoene,
I.e*t the minds ot our children, now spotless and
ch-an,
Shall be tainted and warped, till thoy, too, will so* 1

The lis ai, Issue.—A writer on the rail
road controversy in the Fredericksburg
News, puts the matter strongly thus :
The people don't care two cents about
Robinson or Roberts {both of Philadelphia). I
Uobinsou's road and management they
havo had for nearly forty years, with tho
disastrous results your pen has so clearly
portrayed. Robert's road and manage
ment has helped the peoplo along its line.
The poople hero say, let us try Roberts.
We can't bo hutt. Maryland has tried
him, money, morals aud all, and he has
built a road to Washington (to compete
with Ihe llaltimore and Ohio road), and to
the Potomac. Maryland lets "these dis
honest people" come in. Does tho
Whig think C mgress " dishonest people,"
yet it wants Congress to complete this
James River canal. " Sacrifice State
interest in Robinson's road." Nonsense.
Have we not "sacrificed" Stato interest in
Mahone's road to get greater benefit by
the sacrifice ? Didn't we givo four mil
lions in Chesapeako und Ohio road to a
Now York man to completo it ? Is Rob
erts "moral" enough to get a charter to run
a road through the Valley and not moral
enough to run a road to tidewater ? But
be will get control of Robinson's road. Tbo
Baltimore and Ohio company controls the
' Orange and Alexandria, much to its bene
fit and tho people's. We commend the
llaltimore Gazette's article of Saturday to
the Whig— if the lattor is "a blind horse."
Anatlier Disaster.—Destruction of lYn
olher -tttgsigglpiil Steamer,
Vicksburg, Miss., Feb. 12.—The steam
boat Judge Wheeler exploded her boilers
at about G o'clock this morning, when near
Bell's Landing, a place about forty miles
above this city. The vessel immediately
took fire and burned to the water's edgo,
after which the hull sunk. It is not defi
nitely known yet how many lives wero I
lost, but it is supposed that eight or ten
persons were killed by the cxplosioD, or
drowned.
Among those known as being lost are
Con. Ilogao, deck hand, of this city;
Thos. Welsh, deck hand, of Memphis ; and
two others, whoso names are uuknown.
Ciptaiu Ed. Noland, of Memphis, was
scrioudy wounded and will not recover ;
Charles Harper of Memphis, a carpenter,
seriously wounded ; C. W. Pope, of Little
Rock, Arkansas, badly wounded, aud seven
or eight others.
The Judge Wheeler was almost new,
having been built in Memphis six monthß
since, and was owned by tho Memphis and
Arkansas Packet company. She is valued
at $20,000, partly insured.
Sho was engaged in the Arkansas river
and New Orleans trade. Her cargo con
sisted of four hundred bales of cotton, most
of which will prove a total loss.
February Strawberries and Flow
ers in Florida. —A correspondent of the
Boston 'Transcript writes from Florida
under date of the Ist instant :
I sco you havo been having another cold
spell. Thursday, January 26, seems to
have been a harsh day with you, with
snow and sleet, and finally a temperature
below ;'.-ro. Here, all last week, the
weather was unexceptionally fine and
mild. Thursday (your cold day) it was
too warm for a light overcoat. On Friday
I walked two miles to Hardee's nursery,
and saw a cape jasamine just bursting into
bloom, and plenty of strawberry blossoms
—all in the open air and unprotected. I
might have seer, ripe strawberries growing
if 1 had chosen to walk a few rods over
some rather moist land.
Yesterday tho thermometer in the shade
was 77. It was almost too hot to wort
much iv the open air. Some spinach and
peas that I planted a fortnight ago have
come up finely. Oaious of good size
have sprung up abundantly Irom last
year's seed loft accidently in the soil. On
Sunday I sent homo violets that I plucked
that day in the woods. Tho sorrel iv the
fields is of the brightest greou, and the
young grass is springing, much to the de
light ot the lowing herds that are sent out
to forage for themselves iv winter. Win
ter 1 Tho name seems a misnomer here.
There has not beeu a day since the middlo
of November that it has not been a luxury
to be out of doors. For a day or two
about Christmas indoor lifo was rather un
comfortable because of our limited provi
sions for a temperature below fifty."

The Rhude Island Senate, after consid

vote a proposition to amend the constitu

The bill to annex part of Westchester

The divorco suit of Mrs. N. J. Miller
against her husband, in Portland ( Me.) re
sulted in a verdict granting her a divorce.
This case has attracted attention in conse
quence of the high social position of the
parties and of Ihe witnesses. The ground
of complaint was habitual drunkenness
and abuse. The defence was a counter
charge of adultery. Tho wife proved her
