O ig tome softly, amy sister,
#d siile on me,4aarling, to night,
1 opy-soul isbricompassed by darkness,
i'shut from the kingdom of light!
Iralk i'n lire's valley'of sliadows,
Where the fountain's low murmurs are still,
Wiere swiftly through gray mist and vapor,
Are griding pale phantoms of ill.
Thy .vTee, like the clear thread of siiver,
. Tluit winds through the still grassy lane,
Shall-steal through nay heart's silent chambers
And walken their music agaiu.
-Far away from the clouds of the present,
In the Eden of memory's- isle,
What visions of. peace and of beauty,
Shall my spirit of sadness beguile!
-Oneernore I will rove with sweet fanec,
d think the sweet thoughts of a child,
onee more- will gather Youth's roses,
-hea lier because they are wild.
And zblight which I know is-immortal,
Thiat shone on young life's dewy hour,
Shallsteal from its crystaline portal,
And brighten fair memory's bower.
-Then sing,"to'me softlyi my sister,
And- poor out thy heart in the strain,
T11 dream thit the beautiful voices
Of ehildhoodare singing again.
8o u-y heti shall grow better and purer,
d stre:gth to us both shall be given,
To workout a ptieeless-salvation,
And-iing witlibur children in Heaven!

more than was necessary, was exquisitely
clean, so that it gave a charm to poverty,
and cast-an air of comfort on all around.
A venerable looking old man, who had not
seemed to notice the entrance of Mr. D., sat 1
leaning on his staff, his clothes were clean I
and whole, but so patched that you could
scarcely have told which had been the orig- 1
"This is your father I presume," said Mr. A
D. addressing the mistress of the house. f
"It is, sir." -.
"'He seems to be quite aged.".
"He is in his eighty-third year; he'has I
survived all his children except myself."
"You have once seen better days."
"I have- my. husband was wealthy; but I
false friends ruined me-he endorsed notes
-to a large amount which stripped us of

"I have one, and he is my only support. fl
My health is so feeble that I cannot do much, "
and my father being blind, needs great ht- 14

"Ilenry IV-!" reiterated Mr. D., "why b

Here followed a series of inquiries, which
evinced an anxiety and'solicitude that a mo- ir
ther alone could feel-to all of which Mr. o
D. replied to her perfect satisfaction. c
"You know our Henry," said the old man, a
raising his head from his staff. " Well, sir,
then you know as worthy a lad as ever lived. 1
God will bless him for his goodness to his at
old grandfather," he added in a tremulous
voice, while the tears ran down his cheeks.
."He is a worthy fellow, to be sure," said
Mr. D. rising and placing a well filled purse n
into the hands of the old man. He is a P
worthy fellow and shall not want friends." c(

Shortly after this -conversation, Henry
avowed his love to. Caroline, and solicited

"Be merciful, sir," said Henry, smiling,
I did not wish to witness the sacrifice of

We have'only--to add,-that the -frinds of

HOW TO 1&AZ A WIG.
The most bigoted and' unreasonable party
an I ever met with was Jack D., now a
-osperous and infidential attorney in S.
mity, in this State.
At the hour of which I -am w'riting, he

The vedding was over, the guests had
.parted. and they had retired to their
iainber, and were snugly ensconced in bed,
hen Jack, in the course of a quiet :eon
rsation with his wife, unwittingly alluded
his favorite subject, by casually speaking
r himself being a democrat..
" What!" exclaimed she, turning sudden'
,towards him, "are you a democrat V"
"Yes, madam," replied Jack, delighted
ithi the idea of having a patient listener to
is long restrained oratory. " Yes, madan,
am a democrat, attached to the principles

rines you do."
Jack was speechless from absolute
mazement. That the very -wife of his
osom should prove a traitor was horrible ;
he must be jesting. He remonstrated in
an; tried persuasion, 'twas useless en
reaty, 'twas no go. She was in - sober
arnest, and the only alternative left him
ras a prompt renunciation of his heresy, or
separate bed in another room. Jack did
t hesitate. To abjure the great and es
abished doctrines of his .party, to re
ounce his alleginneto that faith that had
ecome identified with his very being, to the
ere wvhim and caprice of a woman, was
terly ridiculous and absurd ; and he threwv

The door was violently slammed, and

A scene of insulted dignity, and a firm

In the morning she met him as if nothing

The second day 'was a repetition of the
irst.; no allusion was made tte fdrbidddn

GEMERAL SCTT AND EIO PROSPECS.'
The following telegraphic despatches ex
hibit.the sort of machinery set in. motion to
give aid and comfort to the Whigs: -
CInKA ro3TON, (S. C) June 23.-The Whig
nomination& have been received. The assu.
rance of Gen. Scott that he accepts the
platform, and the fact of his association with
William A. Graham, of North Carolina, is
enough for us. Our friends are 'for the
k Mcor, (Geo.) June 23.-The nomina
tions of the Whig Convention have come to
hand. Georgia has been disappointed in
not getting Mr Fillmore, but she will stand
by the nominees, especially so since Gen.
Scott accepts the platform. The nomina
tion of Mr.. Graham aE Vice President meets
with our cordial approbation.
We have heretofore furnished abundant
evidence that Ae nomination of Gen. Scott
has been extensively, if not generally, repu
diated in Georgia. The thiee most influen
tial presses in the State have denounced it as
unworthy of the support of, the people, and
the. two most powerful leaders of the Geor
gia Whigs- have declared they will not' sup
port it unless a Convention of the Constitu:
tional Union party :shall endorse it. Mr.
Daws is the only strong man in-the State
who has yielded.
As to South Carolina,- the idea of any'
support to Gen. Scott here, beyond that of I
a little clique in Charleston, scarcely nume- I
rous enough to be counted as an element-in 1
a scrub race- for Mayor,-it is simply pre
posterous. There are a' few Whigs here,
who, we suppose, would go for any sort of
a. -Whig Candidate-Seward, or anybody.- I
Of course Scott will get these, and, being a- I
respectable man, will get sonmewhat more I
than these. But not one half of tho.' who t
adhered to Clay in '44, will support Scott in
'50. And if the whole, 'of themi went for
himi of what conceivable value would it e I'
There is not one in twenty of the .voters-of
the State that does not prefer the election of
the Democratic candidates to- the Whig.
'There is no,division on that point, and there
will he no contest.
As to those Southern States where a con-.
test mighi.be1loed'6 t y p esent much,

ri..Qeutry of $ennessee for e
nouncing it before hand, weclose thistotRee
by giving an extract from the powerfdl*
speech of that gentleman in the House,' two 1
days before the Whig Convention assem-'
bled. It covers the whole ground. I
"I believe that the nomination of Gen. I
Scott cannot now nationalize the -Wlig
party, even if you pass such a resolution as
I -have indicated, and he shall write a letter .
putting: himself, -now distinctly upon that
platform. Events have already transpired
connected with his-aspirations for the Presi-:
dency, which have infused. into the Southern'
mnin everywhere a distrust, which cannot
be eradicated and though he might be placed 1
in such a position that the Whigs might feel
bound, perhaps through all the States of the I
South, to make a struggle for him I believe
that it would not be six weeks after lie was
nominated before it would be a manifest fact
to the eyes of every man that lie could not
receive the rote of a single Southern State
not one. . That is my opinion. You may
talk about Bridgewater, and Lundy's Line,
and Vera Cruz, and Cerro Gordo and Che
pultepec, and Molino del Rey but it is a very
unphilosophic mistake to suppose that the
glories, of those fiels alone can satisfy the
people of. the South upon the. questions to
which I refer.
0 a . 0 e- .0 0
" Under Sewvard's auspices Gen. Scott
became a candidate for the Presidency; and
if Gen. Scott is nominated at Baltimore, he
will ou-e his nomination to W illiam H . Se
war-d; and therefore, Gen. .Scott's nomina
tion, cannot, under any circumstances, na
tionalize the Whbig .party. As soon as the
compromise. measures passed, all the papers
wnder Mr. Seward's control rhiised up the
name of Gen. Scott at the mast head as
their candidate for the -Presidency. Con
ventions were called at the earliest possible
time in Newv York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio,
which formally nominated him for the Presi
dency.. But no resolutions passed those
conventions, recognizing the series of mea
sures to which I have referred as'-a compro
mise, to he adhered to and executed by the
North and the South.
"-But General Scott is said to be really in
favoi- of these measures. All the worse for

" If he was in favor of these measures
when this mighty struggle wans being made
before,. the tribunal of public opinion, the
result of which involved the best interests of
the Republic, present and prospective, why
did he not come up and give to Webster and
Fillmore the influence of his mighty name,
and aid .them in harmonizing the, country,
and brin'ging Northern men to' a sound po
sition upon this question?' Why 'did he not
do. it i It canronly' be accountedfor by as"
cribing. to-him that sort' of ambition' which
made the angels fall fromn heaven. He want
ed the Presidency; 'and in his extreme de
sire to be President,~ he. forgot thelhighor
and'noblcr duty wyhich ho owved.'to his conn

glorious in this country,- when he aspires to

sacrilege to speak freely- of his position and
of the'- tendencies-political tendences
likely to result from his success.. We have
a right to speak fre.ely. I elaim that.uightr

every endeavor to diversify their labor, a~nd
render herself, as far as possible, indepen

sections. - 'The Southern people' must' en.
