Boys, Spare the Birds !
Don't kill the little birds !
WLo ?ing on bush and troo,
All through tho rummer ditji,
Their sweetest melody.
Don't shoot the little birds !
Tho oarth is God's estate
And he provideth food
For small, as well as great.
Don't kill the little birds'!
Wh'-se plumage winga tho air ; .
Whoso trill a* early morn,
Makes mu?ic everywhere.
What though tho cherries fall.
Half ejvtnn from -he stem ?
And strawberries disappear.
In gardon, field und glen ?
Still like tho widnws's cruse,
There'? always plenty left;
How :-ad a world were this
Of little b;rds bereft.
Think of tbr- good they do,
In all the orchards round,
A grub we ?careely'find.
Where robin" most abouDd.
In this great world of ours.
If we can trust His word, ;
There'* food enough for all
Don't kill a single bird !
"Tho Wron? Haven for Bowen."
From the Now York Tribuno of Monday.
It appears that one of our illustrious
legislators, at" Washington, is persecuted
on accocnt of alleged bigamous prac
tices. Wvi say alleged, because he ap
pears to be on trial, or giving bail to
appear, or waiting a verdict most of the
time, so that the Tittle- modicum of the
work he can give to- his seat in the
House seems hardly worth while ; but
nothing definite ever comes of it. Af
ter a protracted turn in bigamy pro
ceedings, and an eclipse by reason of
the shadow cast upon his brightness by
the many women interested in his lovely
career, Bowen, M. C., emerges, puts on a
fresh shirt collar, and takes his seat in
the House of Representatives as serene
as if he were not the prize of contend
ing beauties, the male Helen of a Ho
meric campaign. " Here I am," says
Bowen to himself, when he is left to
himself, and sits in the hall of wisdom
among his monogamous peers ; " here I
<irn, and I wonder who will come after
me next." Bowen is not to blame for
being attractive ; he was born so. But
we question if he is not too attractive
for. a member of Congress. The House
is a tolerably conspicuous place. Bowen
cannot sit in his seat without being the
target of a hundred female eyes, half ol
which may be eyes that have looked on
him before and longed to have him for
their own Bowen ; nay might not Bowen
rise any day to a question of privilege,
and, laying his hand on his waistcoat,
look up to the gallery and say, " I have
a feeling, Mr. Speaker, that I am mar
ried, more or less, to half that gallery,
and I should like to have it cleared."
Such a man as Bowen draws too many
visitors to the gallery. Thera must be
some other sphere of life in which his
attractions would interfere less with the
"We are not seeking, by mentioning
this mitig-iting circumstance of this
fascination to defend Mr. Bowen in
bigamy, if he has committed it, or even
in polygamy, if he has attempted to
practice that without its accompanying
religion, for we have no opinion of an
^inreligious bigamist or polygamist ; but
what we desire to inquire is, if Mr.
Bowen was a bigamist, why should he
desire to be a member of Congress
also ? If he had led a life that would
render his old age liable to suits by
various women for the possession of his
temporal frame, what the world recog
nizes as the outward and visible Bowen,
why should he get into such a con
spicuous place for the exhibition of his
jjenitence as the House of Representa
tives? Did he imagine that it is a kind
of pillar of St. Simon ? We should
however, be disposed to leave Bowen,
B. G., to the law, and Bowen; M. C.,
to legislation ; but he appears now in a
new character, to which our attention
is called. The present Mrs. Bowen
writes to the newspapers in deprecation
of the persecution of her husband, who
is describeed as thoroughly repentant
of the past, and let us hope, anxious
about the future. " He had been an
orphan boy without relation or friends,
had drifted into the company of gam
blers and prostitutes, and had lived
their life until it pleased the good God
to lift him from the mire, and stir with
in him the spirit of reformation and
purification." It is no discredit to a
person io be an orphan, unless it is by
his own fault, like the unfortunate
Frenchman who murdered his father
and mother, and then pleaded orphan
age in mitigation of his sentence ; but
there is nothing in the constitution of
our country encouraging one to be an
orphan, a bigamist, and a member of
Congress at the same time. We are
informed, also that when he last mar
ried, it was with a firm resolve to lead
a temperate, studious and honorable
life. For months he has adhered to
this resolution, we also read, and yet
he continues to be persecuted by
prosecutions, just as if he had not re
pented. We exceedingly regret that
Mr. Bowen had a bad start in the
world, and that he has until lately led
a dis graceful life ; and we rejoice that
he is resolved upon reformation-even
if, wc were about to say, it costs him
half his wives. But we remember
that it is the plurality of wives that is
the very thing in question. We sincere
ly deprecate persecution of one repen
tant. In all kindness, we should say,
Go, Bowen, and sin no more. But
don't go to Congress. Sit down in
some inconspicuous place for a while,
and grow in grace and in the knowledge
of monogamy, before you appear upon
a large stage of action and flaunt your
penitence. It is a credit to you that
you have left the " company of gam
blers and prostitutes," but it is no
recommendation to Congress that you
were in that company so recently.
Really, Congress is not a house of
refuge, nor a reform school, nor a
Magdalen asylum for men-however
much it may have that appearance at
Let us not get confused. It is still,
even in this world of complex relations
and natural selections, better to have
married one woman at a time, than to
have married four simultaneously, and
to have repented of three of the mar
riage?. An outraged law will exact its
penalty one way or another, and no
penitence can altogether stay it. This
is an era of rather soft sympathy for
criminals, and we never feel like rebu
king it when the criminal is modest
and is anxious to make neither his sins
nor hi3 recantation too conspicuous.
We must try, however, to preserve a
place in the House <5f Representatives
for those of unassuming. virtues. All
cannot have the advantages of Bowen
for making a record so bad that peni
tence over it will be a recommendation
" to Congress, Bowen may say, and he
doubtless does, and has a'-right
console himself with it, that there
inore joy in Heaven over one rep*
tant sinner .than over ninety and ni
that never went astray, But Congr?
is not Heaven. And* we can say
Mr. Bowen, in the present complicati
of his affairs, as Sergeant Buzfuz s?
to Mr. Pickwick, " it would have be
more decent in him, more becoming,
better judgment, and in better taste,
he had stopped away."
Glad Tidings. *
From all the country contiguous,
and which seeks this city as its marl
town, we are pleased to learn the d
position of planters is pretty general
plant corn an sufficient abundance
meet their own wants-and of mar.
to go back to their habits practiced
ante-bellum times, of raising a sufficie
cy of hogs to feed the force on th<
respective farms. This is glad tidin
indeed, and under its prospective infl
ence, our spirits, which have been ma
to flag under the depressing influen
of the past year's agricultural oper
tions, already begin to revive. Dour,
less there are yet a few reckless of ca
for the good of their suffering sectio
who will plant largely of cotton to tl
neglect of grain. Such are more to 1
pitied than despised, and we have- ho]
that these erring ones, from the for
of the good example set them and prc
perity attending the practitioners, w:
yet be brought to a proper appreciate
of what is to their interest and to tl
interest of their section.
What planter is so blind that he ca:
not comprehend the fact that the vei
thing that makes corn high, makes cc
ton low. Cotton at 25 cents per poun
pays a handsome profit on the land ar
labor employed to produce it. At
less price, its production in Georgia
a poor business. With the productic
of 2,750,000 bales only, this price wi
be guaranteed. Not only this amoui
can be produced in the cotton States i
America, but with it, on every plant!
tion, can be made the corn necessary 1
subsist the stock and labor on it. W
trust wavering planters will weigh we
this matter before planting time, an
try the experiment, and plant for th
full of their cribs. Do not fear the pr<
duction of too much corn, for be assuj
ed that just in proportion as your cor
crop is bounteous, will the price <
your cotton tend upwards.-Columbi
Tbe Attorney a Blackguard.
Touching felicious endings, a We

Several years ago, when one of ox
present Justices of the Supreme Cou:
was District Attorney of a neighborir
county, rather a laughable incident Oi
curred as related by himself. Cou:
week he used to occupy a bed room ?

county seat. He had his books au
papers in this room. Here he dreV h
indictments, and in ijaportant cases, 1
used to direct the s.'.anff to bring tl
people's witnesses for preliminary e:
It happened at one session that I
had an important murder case comin
on. The celebrated General (now Judgi
Nye was counsel for the defendan
He examined the witnesses as usua
and took careful minutes of what the
would state on the stand. He foun
that a lady was the most importai
witness for the people, and ho also di:
covered that she was rather excited an
high-strung, and a fast talker.
Apprehensive of trouble, he thougl
he'd caution her a little. So he toi
lier when she came on the stand not i
talk. " Pay attention," says the Dil

for he is a great blackguard, and wi
try to get you mad. Just pay attentio
to his questions and answer them, n
matter how often repeated or hoi
apparently silly, but don't allow hir
to get you off your balance."
The District Attorney and witnes
parted for the night. The next da;
the case came on. The District Attor
ney called his witness, and she wen
through her evidence on the part o
the people to his perfect admiration
and he handed her over to Nye.

Pretty soon he began to crowd her anc

having lost self control, she broke ou
on him as follows :

may be readily imagined. In the midst

A SKUNK STORY.-The following is
good because it is said to be true : James
H-, a fixy young gentleman of the
town of H-in a neighboring coun
ty, went out into the country to spend
the evening at a plain old farmer's, who,
by the way, had a very pretty daugh
ter. James, who had used a good deal
of musk in perfuming, was having a
delightful time of it, and was confident
that he had made an impression, until
he went to the supper table. The old
gentleman, who knew no more about
Musk, Eau de Cologne, &c, than a
Chinaman does about Christianity, at
once detected the smell of something
unaccountable to him, which did not
set so well on his olfactory organ. After
sitting a little while and curling up his
nose a few times, he turned to a young
man who was living with the family,
and said: "John, 111 be drat if them
dogs hain't killed another polecat
don't you smell it?" James kinder
BEAUTIFUL EXTRACT.-A traveler
who spent some time in Turkey, relates
a beautiful parable which was told him
by a dervish : 'Every man has two an
gels, one on his right shoulder and one
on his left. When he does anything
good, the angel on the right shoulder
writes it down and seals it, oecause what
is done is done forever. When he does
anything evil the angel on his left shoul
der writes it down and waits till mid
night; if before that time the man bows
his head and exclaims : 'Gracious Al
! lah ! I have sinned-forgive me,' the
angel rubs out the record ; but if not,
at midnight he seals it, and the angel
on the right shoulder weeps."
WHY ONE SHOULD NOT SWEAR.-An
article in the Pittsburg Preacher, gives
eight good reasons why a man should
not swear :
1. It is mean. A man of ^high stan
ding would almosfcas soon steal sneep as
2. It is vulgar-altogether too low
for a decent man.
3. It is cowardly-implying a fear
either of not being believed or obeyed.
4. It is ungentlemanly. A gentle
man, according to Webster, is a genteel
man-well bred, refined. Such an one
wili no more swear. than go into the
street to throw mud with aloafer.
5. ' It is indecent-offensive to delica
cy and extremely unfit for human ears.
6. It is foolish. *' Want of decency
is want of sense."
As a lady and gentleman were
admiring a poplar tree, the latter gal
lantly remarked, " If I add you (u) to
it, it will become popular." "Better
add * us,'" she replied, " and it will be
come populous." He took the hint and
married her soon after.

SULPHURIC iCID I SUPERPHOSPHATE CO.
The now well-known ETIWAN G VANO is manufactured from the Native
Bone Phosphates of South Carolina. These Phosphates in their natural state are
Insoluble, and require to be ground to powder, and made Soluble by Sulphuric
Acid. This Company has now in operation the largest Sulphuric Acid Chambers
at the South, and are, therefore, able to manufacture at the lowest- rates, the
HIGHEST GRADE OF FERTILIZER; it being clear that the greater the
proportion of Soluble Phosphate any Fertilizer contains, the loss the quantity
required per acre. In order to make the Fertilizer complete, Ammonia and
Potash in sufficient quantities are added. With these views the Company manu

it to all crops. Price $55 per ton, Cash ; on Time, $60 per ton, and interest 7
per cent, per annum.
Of high grade, suitable for Manufacturers or for Planters, being in itself an ex
