Thlis instead of being an objection, is at
pr esenft, we think, a strong recommen

may readily supply themselves with an
abundance of' excellent lands f'or tillhage,
these poor pine lands sup~ply the most
dliughitful and salubrious sites for resi

of crowvded settlements, and furnish fa

that as Florida has an ampi. abundance
of prodtuctiv soil, we rather rejoice that
it is w-thout those largo bodies of rich

into exisrence a state of society by no
means the most desirable.
LIany persons are deterred from set

by thie tender management of my wick'

from the. dominion of a .degrjding and
ruinous vice. She became prudent from

rshe preserved order in my affairs, from
the care of which she relieved me ; she
gently reclaimed me from dissipation ;
she propped my weak and irresolute na

exertions that have been useful and
creditable to me; and she was perpet
ually at hand to Adnonish my heed

owe that I am not a ruined outcast ;
to her whatever I am ; to her what ever
I thad be. In her solicitude for my in,

my feelines or my character. Even in
her occasional resenment, for ubich I

Whe, Gen.: Hotision abdicated the
office of Governor of this State, he left
his home, eschewed civilized life, and
sought a new home and a new wife u
mong the Indians in the far west, where
he lived for sotme years. On his return
to Nashville, there were none-perhapq
only one person-who treated him oth
erwise than with neglect or contempt, so
low had the wheel of fortune, or rather
his dissolute life, turned him. He was
now in an Indian costume-at least he
wore the cap, hunting-shirt and mocca
sins. This was his. second love.

with equal indifference towards the com

which was full of conscq'uences, he pas
