Lines to the Memory of Mies Lizzie
I sae her-I see her, the maiden fair,
With her laughing : . m'.i:.iig hair,
And footsteps light a- tc.e !;..s ndi:.: fawn's,
When it springs from its covert d. daylight dawns.
I hear it-I hear it, that joyous note,
As it gushes forth from her elender throat,
And unoonsciously t' rn t.i the ed.a .1-girls gey
For the beautiful one, now gone for aye !
Alas! Alas ! that the Spniler should come
And bear her away to yon narrow home,
Should dash the smile from that face so bright,
And seal those eyes in dreamless night I
Strew ftowers, white flowers, o'er her lowly bed,
(Meet emblems they are of the loved one fled,)
And breathe a prayer for the mother bereft,
(it her durling Lizzi: by the tyrant-Death !

The action of oar Convention, ++u-callf', i.s not
only cuntrary to our establishel sy'stem of State
Government, but likewise to the Constitutien of
the Confederate States, as well as to that of the
.old Union. Wo have laughed at and derided the
people of the North, for their tame submission to
the unconstitutional acts of Abraham Lincoln,
and yet, before the broad grin is fairly off, we
quietly sit down, with faces singularly elongated,
and obey, implicitly, similar nets of usurpnation,
on the part of our State Convention ; and if they
were, and are fit subjects for our mirth, what are
we for theirs, when comparing the power of Lin
coln, backed by twenty States, the least of them
equal perhaps to the enforcing power which in
sultingly demands the obedience of South Curoli
niana? The Yaukees always charged us with
being governed by an Oligarchy, and predicted at
the beginning of the present war, that we would
soon ruu int., aldilitary Despotisu, if not, brought
back to the Feeral fold. How they must enjoy
our degradatiun ! South Carolina, the leader of
this Revoltion. so utterly false to her professiouns
of resistanc, to ryranrny-her enservatire policy
6+r C'onstitational liberty!.-all a sham, a nisera
ble delusion ! And those who open their wuuths
against the bhsa usultation are taunted with the
t.rm " disafirection?" Di~ufetirn Y What ! to
love the free institutions of our fathers, disa'ee
tiso ? Tu stand by the guvernmnent they have
triad, and proved to be unetuall' fur nearly a
century, is to be tainted with toryistu ! To lantd
the general good-to p:ead for the voice of the
g..vernett in the Ceuacils of the State-to defend
the sacred inhcritance of republicani.-m. begnueath
ed by our fathers, is so longer patriotism, with
many, but a stigta and a reproach ! Let infaley
brand the perpetrator of any act which trawnels
the free ! Lot the hisses of an injured people fall
upon his dull ear, and the mutteriugs of their
gathering vengeances strike terror into that spot
where a heart ought to be !-and if the existeure
of a soul may possibly titi cuntatnination in -ch
a carcass, let it shrink front the retribution wiieb
uwaits it, in life, and in death--now and forever.
There being no doubt, whatever, as to the u~nr
pation itself, as Well as the dangerous character
it has assumed, the only question o-f importunee
which presents itself is, how can the outrage be
succes.fatlly met and throttledy
As there scents to be no disposition on the part
of the Contvention to redress the great wring it
has inflicted, it evidently remains for vuIn ros-t.E
to take it intu their own hands, and treat the mat
ter ass those should, " who know their rights, and,
knowing, dare main' in." A suggestiin then:
L.-t the issue h maln. at the ballot h-.v, in Octo

restrain the Council from abolishing the election
ot' tuumber. to the Legislature, and the Legila

Private dispatches received in this city yester
day uvening announce that a battle was fought

about 500 of them and losing 12 to 15. The Con
federates were under the command of Col. Thus.
Or. Lamar. of Hamburg, and he is represented by
Gen. Pemberton as the hero of the day. Colonel
Lamar was wounded in the engagement, and will
arrive in Hamburg to-day. In the language of
one of the dispatches, "the victory was complete."
'[We are indebted to the Charleston .ltcreuary for
the following dispatch :
