LONG YEARS HAVE PASSED.
BY T Ho31.\S 31ooRS. .
Long years have passed, old friend, since we
First met in life's young day;
And friends long loved 1)y thee and me,
Since then have dropped away;
But enough remain to cheer us on,
And sweeten, when thus we're iet, .
The glass we fill to the many gone,
And the few who're left us ye.
Our locks, old friend, now thinly grow,
And some haug white and chill;
While some, like flow'rs 'mid autunin's snow,
lietain youth's color still.
And so, in our hearts, thou1gi one by one,
Youth's sunny hopes have set,
Thank Heaven, nut all their light is gone
We've so1e to cheer us yet.
Then lre's to thee, old friend, and long
May thou and I thus meet,
To brighten til with wine and song
This short life. ere it fleet.
And still, as denth comes .tcal'ng on,
Let's never, old friend, forget,
Even while we sigh o'er blessings gone,
How many are left us yet.

BFACII ISLAD FARMElS' CLUB.
At the Regular Monthly Meeting of the
Beach Ishid .Parmers' Club, on thu 7th of
November, 1857, this paper was submitted to
the Club by .lir. IL Bradford, adopted, and
ardered to b.e printed:
W1herus, the '!haters and Farners are more
ieeply inlterested t han any other cla.s of the
:onimtunity in a wenal currency and soje bank
ng institutions, and are at this titue suffering a
oss of twenty-five per cent. on every kind of
staple produce sold, from the prostration of the
Lanks and the depreciation of the currency,
:aused whoily by the reekless speculations of
>ur Banks, or the Banks with which tbey
Lre too intimately connected. The Beach Is
and Farmers' Club, taking the Subject into
:onsideration, suggest as follows:
1. That the Lank of the State of South
,arolina should be woundt up and finally cloled.
2. That the capital of every Bank chartered
>y this State, should be precikely the same in
mouunt, viz: one million of dollars.
:. That every Blank should be allowed to
iave agencies wherever they may desire them,
ei:hin the .S'ate. But that no Bank should have
he privilege of buying or selling Bills of Ex

"An express has just arrived from Grec

instant, a train of twenty-six wagons was ca
turcd by the Mormons; and at the same thie
two other trains were taken near Green river

on 1:am's Fork, thirty miles in advance of th

They killed no one, for the reason that no resis
tance was made.
"Col. Smith will collect the trains on tbif
side and escort them forward. There is one
train before us, and two behind. We are in
good spirits, and that is a great help to all. Th
Mormo will likely atta-ek us in a day or two
and may rue their imprudence. We have forty
seven men in this command, but COl Smith is
a host of himself.. We have determined if at
tacked to use the rifle in the line. We shill
most likely take the route on Bear river for
Salt Lake city. The want of forage for our
mules is the greatest hindrance. but we will go

his untiring zeal, his chivalrous spirit, and, per
