THOU ART-WHRE I
BY JENNY WOODBINE.
Shall we ever side by side
Kneel in yonder house of prayer,
And by sorrow purified,
Pour our heart's devotion there?
With sweet strains of music stealing,
With :oft anthems upward pealing,
Shall we two, submisive kneeling,
llow in prayer?
No! for fate our hope has thwarted;
We have loved-and we have parted;
Lone I pine, and broken-heartd
'Tis the holy Sabbath dlay,
Bells ring out from every street;
Earthly pilgrims wend their way
To the shrine where Christians meet.
But my heart with wild emotion
Like the roaring wave's commotion
Beats, instead of pure devotion.
And a tear
Steals adown my cheeks in sorrow,
As I strive more faith to borrow
Would more strength were given to crush
This deep woe 'tis mine to bear;
And in vain, I strive to hush
Earthly thoughts in fervent prayer.
But the thought that we are riven,
Comes between my soul and heaven
Would I less of love had given
To thee there
For when I, in prayer am kneeling,
Still a bitterness of feling
Will conue o'er :ny spirit stealing
Everything seens now to tell,
'Tis the holy Sabbath day;
But thou hear'st no Sabbath bail
0n the waves and far away;
Far from all who love aul know thee
Blue above-and blue below thee
May the angels kind watch o'er tece.
Thee, loved one, o'er yonder Ocean
Does a fond thought eve,
Ne'er a prayer to heaven dut go
But I think of thee-ny friend
Oh! twould glad my leart to know
Thou to ine one thougdH didst lend.
When in memories entrancing
Thy fond heart is backward glancing
Caust thou see my dark eyes dancing
As of yore?
But 'tis vain this self-deceiving,
iope can cheat me to believing

R. DINGLEYTS TOUR TO GEORGIA.
DY S. A. L.
Dear reader, I gave you an insight into the
pculiarities of the aforesaid gentleman some
tie ago. and hope it did not weary you too
uch for your interest to flag over the following
Durhams, and Berkshires, Shangaes and Cab
bges, all save wile and children, had ceased -to
onopolize the Doctor's affections, and he con
luded, as it was pretty hard getting a living
ot of the worn out old fields in dear old Caro
lia, that he would try the West. So after
snding a few *hands to Texas, and having the
eperiment to try of leaving the 'gude wife'
te ' bairn,' and the coffee pot, for a month or
ore, to see to affairs so far from home, he
appened, in a fortunate moment, to think of
Baker," the present El Dorado of dissatisfied
dgefield farmers. Well, so the time came
aound and poor Mrs. Dingly, with a foreboding
eart and a pretty copious shower of tears, bade
i God bless himt, and like a flash of lightning
he was off. The poor nervous mortal that she
i-I hope she will excuse mne for the compli
aent-had such dreams, and visions of robbers
ad collisions, boiler burstings and pneumonia,
s to grieve herself sick-.and, instead of her
cry being like the speecless Irishman for three
hole days, "water, water, water;" it was
Dioctor, Doctor, Doctor."
The time came round for his return, and after
eering through the gloom until it had dat kened
nto night she gave up in despair. Father gone,
nther sick, the two little daughters ini trouble,
nd Geordie suffeiring with the car ache. There
as this addition to little Sophie's evening prayer
s she lisped it at her mother's bed side, " Pray
les dear papa over again, and bring him home
o poor sick mama and his little children." Two
rhole days must intervene before the wanderer
c uld return,-and the poor wifeu so sick andl
uxious. After a tedius wrestle with scorching
everr and dark fore.bodings, the next periodi for
he stage's return came round and a servant
as deupatchedl for muaster. Neighbors and
friends had been to olffer aid,-somec to cheer
mdna cI'ol., somle to di:.courage with unpleasant
umor.4 of sickne,-s and death. The evening
axed andI wauned and the servant returned
vith the tidings, " Master haint come, Mistess;,
ouldn't hear nzothuia' 'bout himz. I'm gitting
nighty oneasy. Dont know what to think."
The poor wife's troubles had reached their cli
ax-the Hope defErred which maketh the
hea.t ak had attained its culminating point
and she gave up in despair. " Oh, I know thz
he is sick, and perhaps dying, aud that amon
strangers. Oh! Father have mercy upon him.
" Mary," she added to a friend who was wit
her, to console and cheer, "I know I shall neve
see him again. With this fever and my anxit
ty, I cannot bear up much longer. If I shoulda
live to see iim, do not bury me until he returns.
"0 cousin Sophie, don't talk so. There's i
danger of your dying, and he is detained wit
But no comfort would the wife tike, save tha
unspeakable privelige of lifting her heart to th
Comforter on high. One more day of the t wi
which must intervene before the next arrival o
the stage, after hours of unspeakable anguish n
body and mind, and in a paroxysm of despait
she lifted her heart to the source of all Aid wit]
the cry, " Ob, Thou who didst raise Lazarus t
his weeping sisters, in the days of Thine incar
nation, canst rhou not bring my husband home
Is not Thy power as great now as then?"
when Mary, with a bound, screamed " The Doc
tor is coining !"
Reader, I draw a veil over that meeting. Ev
ery true husband and wife can realize it, unde
similar circumstances. And as Mrs. Dingley ant
her troubles-poor woman-have caused along di
gression, P'il try and proceed with the affairs o
"Oh my dear, sweet, precious, sugar plum
papa," sang little pet ISophie,1 "I'm so gla'
you've come." The echo had scarce died awaiy
when a troup of little darkies entered, "IIowd)
master, how you do sir? fim so glad to see you,'
exclaimnd Jim, his eyes looking somewhat aftei
the fashion of shooting stars, "1m glad tot
mnarster," chimed in Paul-"Master did yot
bring me my hat," and thus, with the different
feelings which influence one another, did theii
characters show themselves. Reader, methink:
the prayers that were wafted to Ieaven that
night, on the snow wings of gratitude, were
overburdened with their weight of thunkfulness
The next morning, on the Doctor's making
is appearance, there was a general jubilation
from pigs and calves, shangaes and geese-even
the old Turkey put on a strut equal to the most
Ttroadway daudy; neighbors flocked
and desolate, Luw .....- - --
these shall the jewels of God be made up. By
this standard is the mai measured, and not by
his weight in powers of flesh.
Dont read me a homily on long prefaces, Mr.
Editor. i'll not trespass again. Nor think Mrs
Dingly outstepped her prerogative when she
told mie this. Because you see, although she
gave me no leave to hold up her husband's vir
tues, but his hobbies, to -the world, the poor
over-joyed creature was foolish enough to look
so sincere and so happy when she discoursed
upon his goodness to her and to every body else,
I couldn't refrain from writing it.
The Doctorset outon the mornig mentioned,
nd without accident reached Augusta. H~e
here had the happiness to meet some valued
friends from A bhevilie, the Rev. Mr., C. M. B.
and lady, and with the friend who was to ac
ompany him, they took the cars. There wvas
s usual sundry mishaps and stoppages--but as I
am not posted up in all the tecknicalities of rail
road traveling, I shalnot attempt to enumerate.
After passing through the different flourishing
villages and towns of our enterp)rising sister
State,. and meeting with some valued acquain
tances, conspicuous among whom was Dr. Joseph
-, of Augusta, he arrived at Albany, and
stopped at that most desirable of stopping places
for the way-worn traveller, " Byington's." Trhe
Doctor advises all Carolinians to give the-pro.
prietor a call; they cant fail to be miore thani
Dr. Dingly and his friend then proceededl land
unting. After a tedious and weary ride, as
the pall of night began to descend from Iheaven,
they looked about for a resting place. After ar
unsuccessful application or so, they were forced
to accept the hospitalities of "Wade," one of
the colored population. There was not even at
ebony damsel to give life to the household. The
poor wearied Doctor threw his languid, wor
out limbs upon a hard matress, to rest, rest, rest
Oh, reader ! that blessed word rest ! We cat
never appreciate it to its full extent until wvt
realize it in Iheaven. With fever coursinf
through his veins atnd a violent sore throat did
h lie down on the uninviting bedl. After:a
long nap, produced by fatigue and illness, ha
was called to supper. The travellers took theit
seat at the board, oin which was spread an anti
quated lookitig lien, fried wvithiout lard, and
hoe cake of corii bread, but the coffee whern
was it ? It A rabia, or the West Indies, for al
I know. It was nt there,-nei ther on th<
hearth. Poor disappointed Dr. Dingley. 1
Iever visions of home crossed his path during hi
visit, it wa.s then. The coifee pot that is eve
Iawaiting his return at home. loomted up like
iirage in the desert before his fevered eyelid.
" h mty wife, my children, and miy coffee pol
how cati I do with out you," groaned the poo
fellow, as he threw himself for the second tim
on the uncomifortabhle matrtess. Methinks if th
Doctor dreamed at all that night, it wasc
great driedl deserts, with long-legged Shanghta
strtinig about, each with a hoe cake suspende
from his neck,-and away ini the distance soml
bright oasis, whose hbriimful foutntain had bee
trasmogified into coffee, with his wife as pr
siditg genius, dipping it up by the ladle ful
anl lhe poor fellow, like Tantalus, striving
reach it, but nevei- succeeding.
The friend who was with the Doctor had
fellow-suffierer looke(o miserably woe-begone,I
that he was kept alivel eough sheer aniusement.
The next morning, ieir great delight, they h<
hi were informed that breakfast could be fe
r! had at the house of in humble circum
stances near by. Th tor will never forget Cc
t the good woman who treated him to that de- f
licious and fragrant eltof "'Java," that morn
D ing. Suffice it, it full~ mpensated himt for the
IIl privations of the prev us night.
After another day o iard riding and indispo
t sition, he arrived at t 'hospita.le maion 6f
a Capt. U. M. R- t, fi erly of our State, and
a whole-souled Carolin'i. If ever weary wan
(derers were conipen:-4d fur hardships and h<
f heart aches, it was th octor and his friend at
, this house, whose w ch word is hospitality. dI
i With an elegant man sR and every convenience w
and comfort of life, a arden of rosws such as

house, and even every ran to give a hearty
shake of the hand to " 4as Doctor." One who fu

wife, and who had I l'onged in the Doctor's

It was the Doctors good fortune to make the in
acquaintance of several noble-hearted Georgians, c
beside those mentioned: Esq. B--n and his h
digniied and lady-like wife, Mr. T. B--r, Dr.
B-y and many others, to whom he will ever af
recur with pleasure.
After purchasing a place on which the two si
land-seekers hope to reap abundant harvests,
the Doctor's heart began to yearn for home and
family. Again at Albany lie had the pleasure
of dining at " Byingtons," with Capt. U. M. R.
and lady- se
A t Macon, a town on the route, he met a large d
numiber of the ancient and honored fraternity "
of Master Masons, who were convening at their
Lodge there. The Doctor hail the Jleasuire of
being greeted warmly by many of the brother
hood. Blessings on all on earth who wear the fr.
glorious motto, " Faith, Hope, Charity," and
whose Ultima thleae, is the amelioration of the ci

Well, reader, the "Iron Horse" p~uhfed and d~
snorted like one possessed ; the di -tance lessened
and lessened until Augusta was again reached. I
In Ilamiburg familiar faces greeted him on t
every turn, and a neighbour gave the unwelcome
intelilgence, (delicately though, reader, and not bi
as if he was glad he had bad news to give) that pr
the poor wife was at home sick and suffering;
and not only did lie synpathize, but he cheer- al
fully gave up his own herse and buggy to further h
the travellers on their way. Bless him too with is
a good wife, whcn ever he is ready to take one. re
You may think reader, if you are among the it
uninitiated, that the hwband and wife who can
not exist ten days at a ime apart arc unmitiga- fe,
ted geese at the best. But let me see the hus- pi
band who can leave the woman, whom he has
vowed before God and his holy angels to love in
and protect, for days and nights, for noth- 0
ing else but pleasure, and look and speak as uin
concerned about returning home as if hie didn't cl

Cor.z.uIn, Monday Dec. 13.
As the hour appointed to-day for the inaugu
ration of the newly elected Governor arrived,
the House became greatly crowded, and when
the procession from the Senate was announced,
it was with difficulty that standing room could
be obtained. 1is Exce!lency the Governor
elect, accompanied by the ex-Governor, the
Conmuittee of arraigements, the President and
Meibers or the Seinte, and'1 the ollicers of both

About to resign to another, and a worthy
r successor, my ollice as Governor, which was
entrusted to tile, I ohlfi you in par1ting a Word
of eariest farewell. It is not iy purpose to
detain you, but upon this last occasion of our
itiecting I inst not. omit to) give utterance to
the sentiments deeply engraven on my heart
those of gratitude and love to my countrymen
who have honoredt me, and to God who has
sustained me to this welcome close of lny pub
lie career. For thirty years successively have
I served in this Capitol, and in leaving it let mae
assure you that the lively recollection and kind
consideration which my conduct has ever met
I with on the part of the people and their repre
sentatives, and the very many demonstrations
of their kindness and regard shall never be for
gotten. But my purposb this day is to exhibit
and present to you the relies of a past century.
This (holding up a book) is a reminiscence of a
glorious period of our history. It is a printed
copy of the original resolutions against the im
portation and consumption adopted by the Colo
nial Congress and signe(d by its deputies, on the
20th Oct. 17.74, in Philadelphia. Loyal, con
siderate, and temperate, they were yet firm
and determined in their principles, and in their
resistance to injustice and oppression. Deplo
ring a breach and separation from the mother
country ; but when the time came to draw the
sword the scabbard was thrown away. I ex
hibit this record here, and my wish is that a
copy of it, with fac similes of the signatures,
may be placed in a case in the Library of the
New State House, when that building shall have
been completed, there to remain as a perpetual
memorial of the wisdum of our ancestors. It
contains tile signatures of Washington, Jelier
Son, and others, which Imay be examiined. Mav

I ders, with no intention of leaving her, uotwith
standing the tempting allurements of a virgin
soil of surpassing fertility elsewhere-in weal
or in woe, my last resting place on earth shall
be in her bosom. If these are not sufficient
hostages for iy fidelity to the State, I oftr the
graves of my parents, the life blood that gushes
fromti my heart, my wife and children, whom
the solemn promise at the alter admonishes me
to cherish, and the very instincts of nature teach
mie to love, honor and adlore. Thus identified
with the State, in interest, ill feeling, andi in all
thlat pertains to her honor and glory, I should

There are very few of tus who desire the dis

It is true that the Constitution directs thaf the
E xecutive shall take care that the laws be raith

ber that in being merciful to one he may be
cruel to manay. The severity of -a lav, -its
disproportion to the critne, is not a valilfarg~
ment in favor of Executivo clemency.
It is the province of the Legislature, to make
laws, and to alter and amend them when they -
are cruel or defective; and upon them rests the
responsibility of bad laws; and neither 'the
Court, Jury nor Executive have any discretion
in the matter. To adopt any other principle,
would destroy all land-marks, and the juries of
'the country would be virtually our-law-makers,
-to have their laws in turn set aside by the
Governor. - IhI
Without detiining you any longer with de

attention. On all matters of high public im

by the advice of older and wiser men, and shall
endeavor to remedy by diligence, industry and
zeal, my defect of judgment, ability, and expe
rience. And in conclusion allow rue to express
my ardent desire, that in our generous rivalry,
during the present session of the Legislatute,
no private flriendships have been disturbed; no
alienation of friends has taken place; but that

Wuop Lov.-A case of" "love at first sight~ is
recorde.d by the London Court Circular inm a story
of a man " who is now inl St. Luke's mnad housc,

was directed and was answered, lie might give
the letter to himn for his ldy. On thepoor fellow's
refusal as lie was order'ed to de.liv'er it into her

The nana, beinig with the lady' alone whilst she
was emnploved reaing thle letter, fixed his eye's
on her intently, as it' lost in, thought ; lbut hlb~ra
she had done reading it, lie violently, and11 uh
