-.. 21st nstanti, report that the arrival of the
steamer Bitannia of May'4th Trom Liverpool,
~ was announced by Telegraph froni New Xark
to Philadelphia.. and .that- the leading item of

The Baltimore Clipper also contains'the
above report..and adds the "sad event was im

It'las been spread 'through the District,
whether designedly' or not, we cannot. tell,
that our reeting here on Saturday last, to raise
Volunteers, was .very near a failure. Now
we take this occasion to say, that such a ru
nmor is totally unfounded. W'had a most ad
iuirable meeting; and instead of its having been
broken up in a row. as it has been asserted.
every;thing was carried on in the best spirit
imagiiable. To be-sure. towards the conclu
sion o'fthe proceedings, there was an animated
. little discussion, but if there was anything like
an-ill-nitured controversy, we confess that we
weri-whollyignorant of the fact, although we
werepresent. There is a very wide difference
between speaking warmly, and speaking in
The meeting, from the first, was not intended
to be a large one, nor to be a meeting of all the
citizens of Edgefield. The call .which was
made through the-papeis, was addressed par
ticularly, and-in so many words, to the young
men of the district, in order to give them an
opportunity of volunteering for the Mexican
var, and ofconsulting on the preparatory steps
to be taken, to obtain their reception by the
President of the United States; and we here
take the liberty to say, and we are proud to be
able to do so, that several young men of our ac.
quaintance who would do honor to any section
of the country, most nobly responded to the
call made upon their patriotism and the it valor.
The fact is, we were enabled, almost entirely
to complete that day, one of the best volun
teer companies that has ever beeri raised in this
part of the State. There were no signatures
obtainedin public, nor was there a call made
for them in public, but there was a handsome
number ofas iaodsome and gallant gentlemen,
as there are in the State. who enrolled their
anies as volunteers for the war. both in the
morning and in the evening of Saturday last.
The meeting was entirely military in its
character, and it was got up solely for the put
pose we have toentidned, and it subserved that

TIlE LAY OF TI:: VIOLETS,
BY EOwARD J. PORTER.
It is said that the Violets lose their scent in May.
Where are the joyous zephyrs winags ?
Thiey wave nio longer hereo;.
With un so.ft perftime's offering~s
They r~nce wvere won't to share ;
They sighed as lovers sigh around,
Azitd left, our l'eave.s tippn,'
A wreat h of kisses sweetly bound
WVhere. are the zephayrs gone?
They loved us in Spring's earlier hours,
Trhey whispered round us then:
Though bloomed a thousand brighter flowers
In woodlanid, glade, and glen; ;
But now the moon aff4oaspa is.haere*
Our truant loves are flown ?.. -
Oht! do they still our soft spells wear ?
Where are the zephyrs gotne?
Our leaves have lost the glorious breaths
That chainied the zephyrs' wings,
No longer do wve.weave such wreaths
As4.he perfume-spirit brings.
Why linger here, when life's bright chain
Hath lost the ray., that shown ?
Our pei-ished aweets we mourn in vain,
With ibe sephrs'-bright wings, gone !

A GREAT DISASTER, AND YET

One of the most tarrible disasters that
ha-i ever been occasioned by the winds or
storms, in ibis part of the country. occur
red on Thurslay. May 14, about 8 o'clock,
P M., on the plantuiion of Mr. James
Perry, near Perry's Cross Roads. Saluda.
The course of the tind, was about due
North, and raneing in width, from fifty to
one hundred yards.
The following are, as near as can be
gathered, the particulits of the desolation
it spread on the premises of Mr. Perry.
Hia dwelling hous- was thrown down,
and even the sills were moved. The roofs,
and a few top logs were taken from the
meat house and from the burn. The fenc
ing, in soie places, was swept even to the
bottom rail. Some very large trees were
blown down; two, in particular, were ta
ken up by the roots, and broken of, and
then carried to thedistance of forty or fifty
feet. A wagon. standing near the bare,
was carried some fifty feet, and. consider
ably broken. A pig pen was bourne off.
wit h a pig in it, neither of which ha; ever
bean seen since. A'nut eight or ten hush
els of corn was blown away, and has never
heen found from that time. The house
hold furniture was nearly all destroyed
soIne blown entirely mll; and a large chest
contaitting the most valuable wearing tip
pareh of the famcily, and all of air. P's
paplers, was carried completely awaty.
The chest was broken into pieces, andc
some of its contets were found a mile
from the lplace nt which it started.
But strange to relate, alihough there
were ten in family, none oif them were
killed. Mr. Perry, his wife, and iwo chil
dlreni, and two negroes were injtired, but
none oif them fatally. And what is stra.ng
er still, two oh the children had gone to
bed. and the bedstead upon which they
were lyinag. was blown, offe-nd broketi.
andh the hed i'self "as torn into atoms.
nd the children were thrown into the road
w ithout receiving thu slightest injury.
there was nout a thing killed otn the place,
not even a chickeni, so fat- as could be as
