THE ANGEL'S WING.
-There is a Gerans tradition that wign
a suidde n silence t akes place in a comparfy,
an angel nt that ionient makes a circuit
imong them, and the first person . ho
breaks the silence is snpposed to have been
toueled by. he wing of the passing seraph.
And why Aiosld wisdom smile at this?
Are hot ihose perlect beings nigh.
To witness and to share our bliss.
To hear and hush the secret sigh ?
Yea, they may Heaven's solace bring,
Then scorn not thou, the Angel's Wing!
Thou! who alone, thyself dost deem,
A solitary in thy grief.
List! soft as footfall of a dream,
Comes one to bear the s%%eet relief,
And fled is all iby boarded care,
The passing Seraph's Wing is there!
Thon, who. forgiven, dost possess
The penitent's intensenuelight,
When the dark-clnd of guilt's distress
Reveals to thee its edze of light.
Think! as unhallowed tempests fly,
Thy soul is touched, the Wing is nigh!
And thoni. of cotemplative mood
Who dost at eve in wild woods stray.
Where notigh of this world may inturde,
Where fancy migh's in others play,
And hearest the voice which zephyr fings,
No! 'tis the rush of Angel Wi'gs.
Dh, I have paused a space, as 'twere; -
Bewilderina thoughts to gather up,
To put aside the dranght of care
And,taste of mind's exalted cup;
Nor knew what o'er my sotl could bring
Such calmness was the Seraph's Wing.
When brooding tempteru cause me shame.
And in its company of sin
My spirit st te--the Aigel ame,
Andlwep 'with wings the heart *hbin.
A nioment made its circuit there,
And broke my silence into prayer.
I knelt beside my precious boy,.
WhoIt went at childhoot's fiiry time,
MV hospe. my life. my hein's joy
Frotn Ihis to Love's tnclouded clime;
And thile around wept pit ying taeni,
I joyed-the Angel touched me then!
Antid oh, when at my own lass hour
The world rece'des awd Ollies fly;
Th.:t near me with supporlittr iower
Might plumesome herald of the sky
Andi while of victory sing,
Bear te awayon upward Wing! T.
From the Savannah Georgian.
The old year passed with a sigh & Groan,
As sigh and groan he might;.
For in his course full maRty a ond
Hath felt misfortune's blight.
And many a heart that hailed this morn,
With gladness ani with glee.
Recalls hope's transient blossoms flown
With pain and tmisery.
Pale sickness track'd his manhood's path,
And tempests his decline,
And Cotton fell from fifteen cents,
(Weep ptlanrters')-sto nine...

our State, Mr. Richardson is yet not ade
quately appreciated, owing to his modest
and unaturusive course. To value him as
he meris, men tmust serve and consult
with~him. Thoe who have done so, bear
united and strong testimony to his pru

his possessing all the most solid and valu

From the South Caroliaan.
We cordially, heartily approve or the
above nomination, and equally concur in
all the sentiments so appropriately and
justly expressed in relation to it, by our
respected contemporary of the Charleston
Mercury. We hid expected. previous to
the session,And before hearing the nane
of Col. Biel-ardbon, suggested, that Col.,
Benj. T. Elmore would be a candidate,
in accordance with the earnest wishes of
his many friends; hut from tha mom,-ut we
heard Col. Richardson's name ureed, to
gether with tie hbnorahle, and to ts high
ly gratifying motives that prompted it; and
that Col. Elmore bad positively declined
to be, a candidate, in consequence of the
pressing engageinentsof his private affiairs
and cordially approved the nomination of
Col Richardson; we have entertained the
tnost decidet approbation of that nbmina
tion, and confident that it would secure
the general and hearty support of our po
litical friends, of either of the old State
parties. So.far, this confidence has been
rully sustained. Not the slightest expres
sion of doubt or disapprohntion. has been
uttercd ine'or hearini, or that of any one
we have spokeh, alith on the subject; but
everywhere tie most Wemlaneous gratifi
ration, not only at the nomination itsell,
hut the jus and generous motives or it, so
nat ural to our people and peculiarly ho.,
orable to their character; Hotd we feel as
sured iat Col. Richardson w ill-go into of
fis-e, not merely wtitlibt opposition, but
with the unanimous vote ofthe Sthte.
It niforils us great pleasure to add the
following responses front the Patriot and
Coiurier. especiilly the hitter, on account
of its highly gratifying admission, that "our
old party feud is now thoroughly healed."
"Blessed be the peace makers," and their
initual and mpot appropriate and worthy
peace-iffering We greatly. rejoice Atthis
mean- of hatisfying our respected Union
friends und associates, that the hand of
friendship extended to them from the first
moment that the areat question of differ
ence was-honorably and amicably settled,
has been thoroughlv -honest and incet-e.
From the Soudern Patriot.
We mns cordially concur in ihe nomi
nation, by the Mercury, of the Hon. John
P. Richardson, for the office of Governor
of this State, at the next election. Mr.
Richar4on bas. in our bitierest period of
plltical iedhientioiit illiated the eleehi
ahtd respect of all parties. His judgmet
is sound, and his expi~ridnee of hutman na
ture mtatured. In ougress, his influence,
from his mild, e ' orf* manners, high
integrity antd straight forward conduct,
wv as al ways, considerable. We, therefore,
most cordially responad to this nomination,

The system of taxation in this State,
appears to us to* requiire~ further revision,
as being in .some respects snequmally and
injuioushy hurt hensomne. Thie taxes. on

States of Wisconsin, Florida and Iowa,
