THE OLD FOLKS ARE GONE.
Far, far in distant lands I've wauder'd,
Sadly and lone,
My heAt was ever turning southward,
To all the dear ones at home;
Here, after all my weary roaming,
At early dawn,
r've come and find the cot still standing,
But, oh, the Old Folks are gone.
CnoRus.-Here I wander sad and lonely,
In the dear old home,
Those that I loved so well and fond3
All, all the old folks are gone.
Here's where I frolick'd with my brother
Under the tree,
Here's where I knelt beside my mother,
From care and sorrow free.
Still sing the little birds as sweetly,
At night and morn,
Still runs the little brook as sweetly,
But 0, the old folks are gone.
Here I wander sad and lonely, &C
Down where the old banana's waving,
They're laid to rest,
Where Swanee's peaceful water's laying
The green turf o'er their breast;
But there's a home I know, where parting
Never can come;
Oh, for that home I must be starting,
There's where the old folks are gone.
Here I wander sad and lonely, &C
IF YOUR FOOT IS PRETTY, SHOW IT.
If your foot is pretty show it
No matter where nor when;
Let all fair maidens know it,
The foot takes all the men.
The face so fair and lovely,
May charm the gazer's eye;
But if the foot is homely,
He'll quickly pass her by.
If your foot is pretty show it,
When you trip along the street;
For it will catch the eager eyes
Of every man you meet;
Don't toss your glossy ringlets,
Nor pout your lips so sweet,
But gently lift your petticoats,
And show your handsome feet.
If your foot.is pretty, show it,
At concert, ball and fair;
For the small pedal index,
Tells wnan your dnAcEs are.
The figure may deceive me,
All hooped and padded o'er;
But let my eye survey the foot,
I ask to see no more.
If your foot is pretty show it;
If you wish to catch the beaur,
No longer hide the tell-tale charm
Beneath so many clothes.
A graceful foot betrays a form,
Of rare and faultless grace; I
Full, rounded limbs it loth reveal,
For rAsCY'S eye to trace.
If your foot is pretty, show it,
Yes show it when you can;
'Twill help your other lovely charilS,
To win some nice young man.
The practiced eye may well distrust
A nicely rADDED BREAST;
But when it rests upon your foot,
It K~ow1s of ALL. THE nEsT.
ANOTHER HORSE STORY.
A keeper of a hotel not fifty miles from Bos
is, or was, a famnous man for horses-owned
ny, and was always ready for a trade in such
tte. Ie was sharp at a bargain, and was
ter known to make a move that did'nt count
his side, until the followving happened, thai
ved an exception to the rule. Ie always
i some particular horse on hand for every
ticular emergency of trade, and the adroit
3 of his operation ini putting off a beast, wa
sbject for delighted approval on all harnds
ong connoisseurs of that delightful and much*
sed animal, the horse. No o-ae ever traded]
h Staille that (lid not confess himself satisfi
through satisfaction being a la titudinal word,
not always mean that the satislaction wa
eultimate of happiness in the trade-like the
in term in connection with ti e duello.
Lhere was a jolly cobbler wv hose name wvas
ax, that oegupied a small sho') near the hotel,
whom Staille wvas accusta Lned to refer in
e of any stick in P. transactfon, and lie being
isinterested maam, wvould de cide on the mat
of ditference, always, lhe wever, by what
a deemed a strange fatality., deciding in favor
Stille. Some, however, 1svenst so far as tc
imi~Ae that Staffle and thes .cobbler had talked
8 matter over previously, and had certaiti
ns by wvhich they unders toc d each other.
When the stick came, t'nen Staffle would say
Well, well, we cani't get a long any further. Nov
willing to leave it out, to a third party, ani
Mr. Wax, round the c' rner, knows the valm
the horse of I anm s' rapping with you, h<
'll be as good and eamn' Ld an arbiter as we cai
l, and 1 guess 1 will call him." Mr. Wma.
uld acordingly comn . out, leather.apron ani
and, after looking at the matter candidly
ould decide that Sta file receive a smart con
eration as the dilJfe renedi in value, and ti
ould settle it nine t:Jnes in ien,4
ne day there ea'.ne along a stra'nger with:
etty good horse, :tand it was at once the objec
Staille's interest. Ie examained the lhorseu
ihis points, and. det ermined to have hin
le determination woe ked itself up to a Dosi
e fever by the next morning, and when thm
anger's horse was 1.ed out to be harnessed
tiftle stepsped up an d asked thme owner, wh<
s looking on seei ng that the harness wa
>perly adjusted, if he did'nt want to swa)
The stranger tel ;l him ho had'nt the leas
tjection, provider ihe could make a little some
ing out of it.
SWell," said 3 fr. Staffle, " I am glad to he:
u say so). Jo' .mn, bring out the red colt."
The red colt' .ras accordingly trotted out. Il
ine was a ID isnom'er. It was one of thos
mials that, bi aving been called a colt whe:
gitimately er titled to the appellation, had toi
ited it by tI ,e offence of age, and was noi
iling under . false colors. -The stranger lookec
the 'colt,' s .nd gave a - whistle as he saw ti
meancy 1- ..tmean the na nnd .the title..
"Well," saidhe, at last, "howshill we trade?
What are you willing to give to boot?"
"Boot !" said Stafile, with feigned surprise,
"the boot must be on the other leg, I think."
"Ah !" said the man, " well, if you think so,
we will stop negotiation. Good morning.'
"Hold on," cried Staffle, "hold on-don't
be in such a hurry. Suppose I should offer you
-say, twenty-five dollars-how would that
"It wouldnot please me at all," was the re
ply, "I shouldn't want to take less than eighty
" Well," said Staffle,. "I can't do that, but
I'll tell you what I will do-I'll leave it to
" Done," replied the stranger, " anything for
a trade. Whom will you leave it to ? Some
body, I hop that knows what a good horse is."
"Never , better, sir," saia Staflle, delighted
ly, "and here's just the man, of all others,
that I would like to see, coming into the yard.
Good morning, Mr. Wax."
Wax nodded good morning back again, and
said so, and then stood with his hands under
his apron looking at the horses.
"Mr. Wax," continued Staffle,. " this gedtler
man and myself are about trading horses, and
we want you to decide on the amount of boot
that I am to pay him. You know what an ex
cellent horse the " colt" is and can jud e by
comparing the two what the difference s ould
"Mr. Wax, are, you a good judge of horses ?"
asked the stranger.
Mr. Wax nodded, and looked up into his face, '
as much as to say, "I should like to have you
find a better one." le then proceeded gravely
to examine the two, and after standing with his
arms akimbo for some minutes said:
"I should think seventy-five dollars would
be about right."
" Good," said the stranger, "five dollars isn't
much in a trade. Give me seventy-five and
take the horse."
Staffle was as red as a beet, and drawing out
his pocket-book, he counted out seventy-five
dollars, and paid them over. The transfer was
made in silence and the stranger drove away..
After he had gone, Staffile turned to Wax, who
stood there very smilingly, saying:
" That was a devil of a trick you played me.
What was you thinking of ? Didn't you un
derstand that the "colt" was mine 7"
" Yes," replied Wax,- " but you did'nt sus
pect that the other horse was mine, did you?
[bought him yesterday on speculation."
A WoMAN's ADVANTAGEs.-A woman may
say what she likes to you without the riskof get
ting knocked down for it.
She can take a snooze after dinner, while her
husband has to go to work.
. She can dress herself in neat and tidy calicoes
for a dollar, which hei husband has to-earn and
She can go forth into the streets without be
ing invited to treat at every coffee house.
She can paint her. face if she is. too. pale, and
-flour it if too. red.-. -
She can stay at home in time of war and wed
again if her husband is killed. She can wear
corsets if too thick, other fixins if too thin. .
She can eat drink and be merry without it cos
ting her a cent.
She can get divorced from her husband when
ever she sees any one she likes better.
And she can run into debt all over, until he
warns the public by advertisement, not to trust
her on his account any longer.
A humorous young man was driving a horse
which was in the habit of stopping at every house
on the roadside. Passing a country tavern,
where were collected together some dozen coun- i
trymen, the beast, as usual, ran opposite the j
door, and then stopped in spite of the young
man, who applied thewhip with all his might to
drive the horse on. The mien on the porch com
mnened a hearty laugh, and some inquired if he
would sell the horse.
"Yes," replied the young man; "but I cannot
re'ommtiend him as he once belonged to a butcher,i
and~ stiPns whesmever he hears the calves bleat''"
Trho crow-:1 retired to the bar in silence.
ExEncisas i'N C~orncmsm.-The great ad
vantage of these is, that they secure the doctri-1
nal instruction of the young. And for this their
is, there cani be no substitute. .Rehpious histo
ry is good, and the precepts of relig:)S knowl
edge is good ; but doctrine is not only gocd, hut
it is better; nay, best. Doctrine is the gib- 1
stance of history, of preept, of all religious
knowldgc. Children brought up on sounid doe
trine are of more mature and vigorous growth,
better able to comprehend thme preaching of theJ
Word, and thus in a position more favorably to -
salvation. And when regenerated, they are far
more likely to continue steadfast in the faith, and
to adorn their calling.
TimE NMno's HEAD-knEEP OUT oF: THlE WAT.
-On Monday of last week, says the Tampa ~
Peninsula of the 5th instant, While Capt. Park
hil was returning from his camp, from this place,
the horse his sevvant (a strapping negro man,)
was riding took fright and threw the rider. The
head of the negro, in his descent, struck the leg
of Cant. Parkhill's horse, breaking it, when it t
(the negro's head) glanced and struck a tree on
the side of the road, peeling off the bark for sev. t
eral feet. The negro was stupified for ami instant, I
but received no injury. It is supposed that hel
belongs to the "hard shell" persuasion.
SF.NTENcE OF DEATH AFTER TEN YEAns' IMP~Is
oNMEIN.-Th le case of James Copelanmd wbich
has been pending for some ten year3, wras tried
a few days since, at Angusta, Mississippi, and
resulted'in his conviction of murder in the first
degree. Copeland was charged with killing one
James A. Har-vey, and has been found 'guilty
twice before by thec juries of the coutry, yet, by
resorting to the technicalities of the law~, he has
been enabled to gain trial after trial to the lpre
sent time. On the verdiet being rendered the 1
Judgepronouncd upon him the sentence of i
death, orderinig him to be executed Friday, the
30th of October. To be hung, after ten years,
awful imprisonment in a miserable county jail,
is rather a hard ease.
IHoa BalG H T.-TimneS like the present, test
tme integrity of men of business. Like the cru
cible to gold, so is a panic to the characters of
those affeicted by it. An exchange says truly1
Thme men who will best succeed in these times
-will be men of courage, who will struggle to the
Slast to pay-cevery claim. Compassion will also
be much needed, for there must and will be
much suffering. And of all the community he
Swill be the most deserving who can find profi
~table employment for the greatest number of
woking people. Above all things, let personal
honor and integrity be kept above suspicion by
those who have yet retained it. There is no
loss so great or so injurious to society as the loss
rof these. The word of an honest man, his
bearing and his very look, will inspire whole
someie confIdence when banks fail, and all secu
erities are prostrate. The real bankruptcy of the
acountry would be the bankruptcy of these,
s-ould they fail. 'Alas ! they have already faita

s the port of embarcation. On the 1st day of
fanuary, 1847, the right wing of the regiment, r
ider command of Lt. Col. Dickenson crossed t
he Savainah river at Augusta. "The Gover- c
ior accompanied them to the middle of the c
)ridge, the'limit of his jurisdiction, and having I
>lessed them, and sent them forth to serve their d
ountry, there he stood until the new bright v
>anners of the companies disappeared from the f
riew, and he heard 'the booming cannon of F

n tears slowly he turned his steps,-his warm
and swelling heart, no doubt, oppressed by I
omie sad presentiment of the fate of many a a
yous youth sent forth never to return."* 1
The right wing was taken by railroad to
riffin, Georgia, from which point they march- s
d on foot to Notasulga, Alabama. t
On the second day oR January, the left wing, il
inder Major Gladden, was conveyed on the s
ars to Atlanta, Georgia. We struck our tents t
the morning, and marched to Augusta, where t
:ars were engaged to convey us to Atlhnta.
%bout four o~clock in the. evening we crossed v
he Savannah. We were -halted upon the a
ridge, to take a last, lingering, and fqnd look
ipon our native State, which so many of us
vere nef'er to see again. .We fired a salute of s
nusketry to " our native land," cast the last s
ook upon its blue horizon, and wiped the in- p
*oluntary tears that flowed from eyes unused fi
o weeping. But the struggle of feeling was,
on over,--tho order to "march" was given, i'
ad to the sound of martial music, the boom- a
g of hospitable cannon, the wavings of ladies' s
andkerchiefs, and withi every demonstration of 'l
relcome, sympathy, and admiration, we march- r
:d through Augusta. I received one act of c
umble hospitality which I can never forget. '
far the depot was a poor and humblle family, p
rho lived in a neat little cottage. A little girl t
,bout ten years old, came to me, and begged t
ne to go 'home with her. There was in her e
ice such a genuine expression of benevolence 1<
nd sympathy, that I accepted -the invitation. 1
ler mother and father who were French, gave a
se the warmest and kindest welcome, and soon t
he little table was set, and a hot supper spread 1
efore me. The mother and daughter evinced n
he most affectionate solicitude for inc. "HIad

About sufldown on the'2d of January we left
md on the next night reached Atlanta. -Then
tlanta was a little village of 300 population.
he railroad had just reached'there and it had
ust begun its magical rise-to importance. It
ow has 10,000 population. The weather was
raw, cold,- and wet. The rain fell in a constant
luice, the heavens were dark as Erebus, and
the cold chilling wind blew fiercely upon us.]
We hadnothing to eat, and nowhere tosleep.
NIy~supper thiat night was a hard sea-biscuit
mnd'a;. fat. slice of bacori, broiled on a sharp I
tick,oer a pine knot fire. My bed that night
was oninplained plank,' six inches wide, in a
da'ml and foetid box oar. -
The next day we struck.,camp about a mile
from,.tlanta. We were poorly provided with
Gen. MoGowan" address before the Palmetto
:ents, and the continuous and pelting rains kept
is wet to the skin. We were detained two or
,hree days at Atlanta, before we could get wag
ons to transport our baggage and equipage.
bout the 6th of January we took up the line
>f march for Notasulga, Ala., a distance of 150
niles. Our hardships were very great. The
;overnment had not furnished tents or equipage,
>r given us a dollar of money. We had no
overnment officer with us with funds or credit,
:o supply us even with provisions. The State
>f South Carolina lent us the few tents we had,
nd also our arms. At our own expense, and
rith our private funds we supplied ourselves.
t rained nearly every day, during the ten days
if our march, and with clothes saturated with
rater, we laid down at night upon damp ground
nd wet blankets. Pneumonias and other dis
ases were thus contracted which in a few weeks
ecimated the ranks of the regiment. Most of
is were boys, inexperienced in hardships, ten
erly raised, and not capable of making the best
f our circumstances.
The Georgians treated us generously, and
ospitably. In every village we passed, the
rhole population turned out to greet and wel
ome us, and many gentlemen hearing of our
oming had large quantities of provisions cooked
rhich were freely given to us. Others, of less
oul, furnished it for the money.
I will here digress a little to tell a romantic
ittle incident. As we passed the village of
Tewnan, late in the evening, I determined to
emain that night, as I had several letters to
rrite. I told my college chum, who was with
ae, of my intention. He also concluded to

ame up late, and told me he intended to stay
a few days." I left him next morning, and
id not see him again until he overtook us at
fobile. He showed me a lock of silken, jet
ilack hair. He was ennaged to the beautiful
maiden, but death forbace the bans. He was
illed at Chepultepec. As I stepped over his
ody, weltering in blood, I thought of his beau

Friend of my better days."
After a march of ten days we reached Nota
ulga, which was then the terminus of the Ala
ama railroad. A pleasant ride cf a few hours
i open cars, brought us to Montgomery about
o'clock in the evening, about the 17th day of
'anuary. We were. drawn up in a line to re
eive the visits and congratulations of the citi
ens, and then marched to the river, wherp the
teamboat William Bradstreet, whichhad been
hrtered, was waiting for us.
.ia LIGIOUS INTOLERANCE#-.
It is a common impression that the'spirif6f
eligious intolerance does not exist in this coun
ry-yet we have received evidence enough to
Mince us that this is a great mistake. In
ur own State, intolerance and bigotry have ex
ibited themselves in a marked manner. We
o not hesitate to say that the proceedings to
hich we refer call for the greatest rebuke
om those who would oppose, as exceedingly
ernicious, such narrow and contracted views of
We allude to therecent action of the Associate
formed Church, as reported in the Telescope
nd epitomized in the Yorkville Enquirer. That
" Dr. Boyce, from the committee to furnish
itable testimony against dancing, submitted
be following objections: '1. It has a dissipat
ig effect upon the mind and disqualifies it for
ber thought or religious duties. 2. We tes
ify against promiscuous dancing because it leads
excess. . *~ . .
.3. We testify against it because it brings its
otaries into contaminating associations.' These
,ntiments were adopted by the Presbytery.
" A member of the Tirza congregation was
spended from the church for marrying the
ister of his deceased wife, and required to ap
ear at the bar of Presbytery and show cause
>r his delinquency."
These now are the two points of the proceed
igs of the Church referred to, upon which we,
re animadverting. They involve matters with
rhich we think that body have nothing to do.1
'o characterize thus, without Scriptural war-i
int, the acts of dancing, and marrying a de-i
eased wife's sister-this, we contend, is an un-1
rarrantable interference with the freedom of
rivate action. We shall not attempt to prove
bat there can be no sin in dancing, nor that1
bere is no sin in marrying the sister of a de
eased wife-these matters we are content to
myve to the judgment of impartial christians.1

TuE EXT SENTOR-COL. PICKENS.
We have already expressed our preference of
Col. Pickens as the successor of Judge Butler
in the Senate of the United States. We know
of no one in the State more fit for the position,
under existing circumstances. Col. Piclens has
been long in the service of his State, and was
for many years distinguished as a debater in the
House of Representatives of the United States.
He has shown his Idisinterestedness and patriot
ism by refusing all the high federal honors which
have been tendered him. He is a ready deba
ter, and that is what the State needs in the Sen
ate at this time, to repel the assaults made on
her, and vindicate her policy and the policy of
the country. Col. Pickens is a gentleman of
Feat information, and a ripa scholar. No one
as more thoroughly studied the true principles
of our Government and the policy of the State.
He has always been a State Rights man of the
Strictest school, and yet a liberal statesman,
with enlarged views of public policy. He is the
wner of a large fortune iavested in South Caro
lina in lands and negroes. If any son of the
Rtate is worthy of being trusted by her, we think
Col. Pickens is, from his interest in the State,
his honor and integrity and disinterestedness.as
a politician, his talents and ability, his ancestral
Inheritance, and every feeling of pride and duty
which can operate on the human mind. I
Col. Pickens is a Democrat in feeling and I
principle. He believes in the intelligence and
patriotism of the people. He recognizes the 1
people as the source of all power, and thinks 8
,hey should exercise directly as much political
power as is consistent with their feelings and n
wishes. He is for maintaining the rights of the
3outh by acting with the Southern people, who
have a common interest and a common cause
with us in South Carolina. In thus maintaining 4
ind defending our constitutional rights, he will 0
rladly accept the aid of the Democrats, North. C
East and West, who will fight with us and stand
)a our platform. Whilst we can maintain our n
quality in the Union, he will gladly preserve d
he Union, and no longer.
At present we have the Executive, a majority c
>f the Senate, a majority of the House of Rep- d
resentatives, and the ederal Judiciary with us,
md he is not disposed to despair of the Repub- f,
ie. The South is united, and a portion of the a
gorth, sufficiently strong to give us the power
>f the Government, is acting with us. In other 14
words, the South is at the head of the Govern- p
nent, and with a party at the North, has the e
,ontrol of it. This is the very condition we re- h
ember to have heard Mr. Calhoun express his m
trdent desire to see the country in. In regard
o the present administration, Col. Pickens is ii
isposed to sustain it, so long as it sustains-the
Jonstitution and the rights of the States. .
DARING BALLooN AsCENsION AT Ar.BANY.

"The rents were at once - sewn up, and, con

iimself on the knot, clinging with his hands to tj
he ropes, away, in his critical position, he went,
eaving ballast, grapnels and everything else be
tind, and rose with considerable rapidity, having ,
br his support only the cords pendent from the

attempting to change his position, he appear- C
d to lose his hold, and pitched head downward, t
is though about dashing to the earth, which ti
!aused a thrill of horror to the spectators. It ir
vas at this time he lost his cap.. He, however, a

listance was grand, when the balloon took a h
ioutherly direction, and the last seen of it was
t the hills back of Greenbush. He lauded in a 14

HALL's S-rUMP MAeBINE.-The Maine papersr
somment very favorably on this new macline.
f'hey say it can be easily worked by three men.
:t consists merely of two upright wooden posts
thout two feet apart, standing on feet and sup- t
orting a three inch iron shaft having a small t
achet wheel at each end. A chain is passed tl
mder one of the main roots of the stump, and t<
ittached to the shaft-and then wjth capstan r
mars of eight feet in length, an immense power tl
brought to bear on the shaft, and the stump
aised so far that the roots are detached from ~
heir hold upon the ground. The stump is then Y
propped up on one side three feet high, and the ~
arth on the stump soon dries and can be rattled e
>aek into the hole, leaving the ground smooth.d
[hey saw the stump of a tree throe feet in di- s
imeter, raised in about fifteen minutes. With "
hiree men the machine, it is said, will remove
sixty or more ordinary tumps per day.n
Soxx of the papers are lecturing women upon ft
xtravagauce in dress, and advising them to re
;rench, especially during the present financial
liieulty. Doubtless there are many cases of
m unwarrantable extravagance in this way;i but
o people ever consider that two or three glas- n
es of brandy and half a dozen regahias indulg- n
id in daily by a man, to say nothing of five and d
en dollar dinners, amount to more in a year ec
han would be required to dress a woman up to f<
