Created by a nation's glee.
With jest and song and revelry,
We sang it in our early pride
Throughout our Southern borders wide,
While from ten thousand throats rang out
A promise in one glorious shout
"To live or die for Dixie 1"
How well that promise was redeemed
Is witnessed by each field where gleamed
Victorious-like the crest of Mars
The Banner of the Stars and Bars!
The cannons lay our warriors low
We fill the ranks and onward go
"To live or die for Dixie!"
To die for Dixie!-Oh, how blest
Are those who early went to rest,
Nor knew the future's awful store,
But deemed the cause they fought for sure
As heaven itself, and so laid down
The cross of earth for glory's crown,
And nobly died for Dixie.
To live for Dixic--harder part!
To stay the hand-to still tbe heart
To stay the lips-enshroud the past
To have no future-all o'er Cast
To knit life's broken threads again,
And keep her mem'ry pure from stain
This is to live for Dixie.
Beloved Land! beloved song.
Your thrilling power sh:ill last as long
Enshrin'd within each Southern sou!
As Time's eternal ages ro.d;
Made holier by the test of years
Baptized with our country's tears
God and the right for Dixie!
Fram the advance sheets of "Alexander
H. Stephens, in Public and Private,"
&c., by Henry Cleveland, Esq.
"llis moral courage was as undaunted
as his physicial was unyielding. Ile
came home-went before the people
ucither asking quarters nor giving them.
"It was reported to him, that he had
been proclaimed a traitor to the South.
in a public speech made by one who had
held high position in the State. In a
personal interview with this person, he
inquired whether the charge had been
made as reported ; and though the charge
was denied, and the parties separated in
a friendly manner at the time, yet the
words used by Mr. Stephens on that
occasion led to a subsequent demand
upon him for a retraction. This was
refused, and a r-ncounter ensued. Mr.
Stephens was unarmed, while his assail
ant, who was more than twice his size
and weight, was duly prepared for the
rencounter which he sought. Upon the
refusal to retract the words, an assault
was made upon Mr. Stephens with open
knife. This he for soeie time parried
with an umbrella, l eceiving several
wounds upon his arms and breast ; but
his assailant, rushnig upon him with all
his superior force and weight, threw him
upon his back. One blow with the knife,
aimed at the heart, would have clone its
fatal work, but for the fortunate position
of the blade of the knife. Another blow,
on the other side, passing between two
ribs, severed an intercostalery artery.
The strong man then, with his left hand
on the forehead cof his adversary, and the
knife in his right hand, said, "Now -
retract, or I will your - throat !"
Tbe reply was. "No, never ! Cut !" As
the knife came, Mr. Stephens caught it
in his right land, and with his left seized
the right elbow of him who wielded it.
In this w:y the struggle lasted until both
parties were on their feet again, and oth
ers came to the rescue. The- right hand,
that seized the knife as it was aimed at
the throat, was horribly mangled by the
turning and twisting of the blade in ef
forts to get it out of the grip. The hem
arrhage from the severed artery would
have resulted in speedy death, but for the
fortunate presence of Dr. Hitchcock, of
the United States Army, whose skill ar
"The scene occurred in the piazza of
Thompson's hotel in A tlanta, Georgia,
on the 4th of September, 1848. Mr.
Stephens was laid up for several weeks
with these wounds. The right hand was
thought to be permanently disabled. The
tendons of several fingers and the thumb
w-ere severed, lHe could not use the
hand at all for about twelve months. In
the meantime, he accustomed himself to
write with his left. But to the perma
nent injury of the right, his bad chiro
graphy is now p)artly owing."
TuHE TURUiSn EMPRE.-A letter from
Smyrna, states: "The less said about
Crete the better ; the fruits of the revo
lution there will be the massacre of half
the inhabitants, Christian and Mussul
man, and ruin to the island, for a centu
ry to come. Matters look very queer in
all parts cf the Ottoman donminions, and
all I have to say is that the time has not
vet come for the dismemberment of the
'Turkish Empire, as the Turks are still
strong enough to fight, and will die hard.
I wish to goodness my stake in the coun
try was less, and that I could leave it.
T am doing my best to sell off. * **
Our summ~er still lasts, and the country
is suffering from drought.- Thank God,
we have escaped the cholera, yet this
summer there has been a fearful mortali
ty in the town, chiefly among children,
from scarlatina, whooping cough and
diptheria. I believe four thousand to be
a number within the mark. Business
has also been very bad, anti there is quite
a gloom about the place, besides a cer
tain alarm about political affairs.".
Three or four good crops, says the
Richmond Whig, a ill place Southern
agriculture on a stable footing, relieve
indebtedness, and leave our planters
with surplus money for investment. In
times past, the profits of farming were
invested in negroes ar,d land. No one
can now invest in negrors-few desire to
in'creaso their landed estates ; surplus
money will henceforward be employed
in the proce;ses of manufacture. In ten
veers we may expect to have capital,
not borrowed, not begged, not brought~
by immigrants, either Northern or Eu
ropean, but derived from agriculture.
That capital will be employed in estab
lishing manufactures, and as a first step
thereto in procuring skilled labor from
abroad. If we had capital now, we could
command immigrant labor, we could turn
the tide of immigration from the North
and West to the South. We can offer
better land and greaiter advantages than
either of them, and there will one day be
a rush to the South that will exceed any
that has yet been mlade to the West.

TtarT Boo-rs.-The Indianapohis Ga
Izette tells the following rich story :
"A few evenings since a youLnig gen
tlemnan of this city, who had been in
dulging in that most expensive of all
luxuries, a pair of' tight boots, called on
a couple of' young lhdies. One of the
hoots pained him so much that he was
compelled, at an early hour, to rise to
retire ; the ladies, not wiThing him to
go so soon, inquired why he was in such
a hurry ?~ A fter hearing the reason,
one of' the ladies told him to take off his
Iboot, which was done, and he remained
Ian hour or two longer. When it was
time for him to say good-night, he arcse
and looked ar-ound for his boot, but it
was nowhere to be found. After making
1a great searcq, it was dliscovered that
one of the ladies, in a play ful mood, had
inserted her font into the boot, and was
unable to get it off. The other lady
1volunteered to assist her, but her efforts~
were equally uinsucces.sful, and the nip
shot of' the matter was, that the young
man had to walk home (a mile or more)
with but one boot.
TYPOGRAPICAL SoCIETY.-The anniversa

DR. ERANTLY'8 FArtWEJL ADDRESS
Was delivere.l last Sunday to a large and
appreciative congregation, composed of his
friends and admirers from all classes and I
persuasions. The diacourse was a forcible
and happy one,and will be long remembered.
Dr. Brantly is a scholar of superior attain
ments, an able minister and most courteous
gentleman, such an one as would prove an
ornament to any community. We wish
him, in his new home, all that prosperity he
so eminently deserves.
THE NEW DRUG STORE.-Drugs and
Medicines are nauseous things; few people
like to buy or take them, first because prices
heretofore lihe been so very high, and sec
ond because they are so unpalatable. In
some measure this is remedied by our young
Druggist Dr. Pope, who to make them as
little objectionable as possible has reduced
the prices of his goods. In proof of which
see an advertised schedule of Standard ar
ticles, and for further proof call on him.
None but a madman will refuse to doctor
himself, when it can be done so cheaply.
SnUT THE DooR---Our door, and every
b>dy else's door. The man who leaves
your door open on a cold, freezing day,
must live in a doorless house, or have a
snory chimney and a scolding wife ; and
vet that is ro excuse for him to inflict
such a punishment on his more fortunate
neighbor. Shut the door! Since the first
of January we have kept a diiary, and
find tha t our door has been left open nio
less than six hundred and fifty-three
timnos, by this careless class of individuals.
Of this number, two hundred and one left
it open on entering, and two hundred
and twenty-six both on entering and
leaving. The most melancholy feature
in this; relation is that only ten of the
whole number paid up their subscriptions.
S.ALE-DAY.-Beautiful over head, sun
shine and >>lue sky ; under foot mud,
slosh and snow, intermediate, variety of
folks, crowding the streets, blocking side
walks, making glad the hearts of mer
chan-ts, with the prospect of big sales.
Freedmen in endless number and con
fusion hunting homes, odd jobs and
ginger cake. Sale day is an institution,
and a 'pritty good one to some ; we like
it sometJimes on the whole, that is when
we have a fe-.v wholesome visitors, who
are nft educated in a poor school, that is
not troubled with poor ways. Sales at
auction, lively and much property dis
p-sed of. Hlerajd's transactions middling
to fair and tendency upward.
PEcs vs TYPE-In Confederick times,
the building we now oc::npy as an office
was used as a cobbler's shop, by various
co',red gentlemen, long since departed
to places unknown, or to whe-re good
darkies go, or sonme where else, but it is
not used for such ignoble purposes now,
we do not patch old soles, or fix up
understandinigs, we don't deal in leather,
either upper or lower, and the place
which on1ce knew these respectable dlar
kies, now knows them no more forever.
They are gone, glimnmermig perhaps, butt
gone so far as our l;urpcses are concerned,
and will not return this year any how.
Every once in a while, and occasionally
oftener, we are visited by some brother
or sister of these dleparted colmied sons
of Crispin, and asked if one of them is in,
or if we have any shoe pegs or sole leath
er to sell. It is enough to make a cross
eyed man look double, or mistake some
one else's wife for his own, or spank an
other mani's children. Its not a shoe
shop, we atre not cobblers, don,t deal in
leather, pegs, brads, awls, or have we
any knowledge where Simon, Peter.
Moses, Lawrence or Nicodemus are at
present. D)ear colored breethreni this is
not a shoe shop, do you hear.
Ter.strs.-Another mess has been
kindly deposited on the editotial floor,
but the (donor says if we give his name
he will be angry and discontinue his
favors. We would not hurt his feclings
for twice the nuniber of turnips, and

fellow altogether, and whatever he does
is well done, there is no denying that.

Level friend, and with the same restric
tion. These gentlemen are too modest
by half, to hide one's light under a
bushel in these times wvon't do.

Little BELL SII:AL., eldest daughter of
Sarah A. Shealy. e11r age was eight y-ears
and two months Hler disease was complica
ted. U1cr illness condtued a month or
m'ore, and thten she expired. She feels these
excruciating painis no0 more, they are gone
andu she is in a state of tranquilhty, with her
blessed sav'ior in hieaven where there is
nothing to nmolest her. Her undoubted in
tegrity and generosity will never slip the
memory of one who is trying to promulgate
her reputation to the public. Little Bell waIs
one of my students for twelve mnoths or
more, sh;e was not an impel ions or re
pugnanlt girl, but implicitly obey-ed the
mandates of her preceptor. With her
amtiableness and explicit kindness she
gained the good w 11 of all her fellow
students and teacher. She advanced rapid
lv in literature, and few if any exedled
little Bell for the timeatschool. Oh that this
may indelibly impress upon the minds of
her play-:ntaies the absoluteness of death.
Alas! ab:is! that amiable face they can see
no tuore, her soul is gone to that world of
spirits, while her body lies in the col, cold
graie. Little Bell left a mno:h -r, t rothet
and sister, antd manifold relations and ac
quaintances to mourn her departure, but
this departure is but momentary, though
she can't comte to them they tmay go to her.
Little Bell was a girn who combined tunti
ring energy and tenderness of sensibiliry
and extraordinary propensity to wit. She
was a devout little girl adtmired her books,
and augmented with great facility.
She was not a romantic girl, but had the
stability and solenmnity almost of woman
grown. It is useless for mte to try to eluci
date lhen reputation. 11er assiduous study
and demeanor (though a youth) would have
sotme day been the instrumentalities of her
being admitted among the wise aund the vir
tuous, if it had pleased God, the supreme
being to hav-e let her remain in her pro
batiornary state till a woman grown. SI:e
wottld h ive been an ornament to her Moth -
er, Brother and Sister, Kindred, and all
that knew her.
But God hais better use for her and now she
rests in heavetn abov-e, where ther-e is noth
itg to molest her or make her afrai I. You
would have loved little Bell if you hand
knowni her I am sure, she was such a swe(t
little thing, that I believe I speak the truth
in saying that every body loved her who
had the pleasure of looking into her bright
and atniable face. But she is gone to her
long and eternal abode in heav-en, where
she can say this is tmy home forever, here
will I dwell. Her people every where may
mourn her remov-ah but may rejoice in the
comuinued life of her itnfiniite Master. Pa

God, it is not a work of supererogation but
will prove a benediction to you and then.
Whereas Christ saith plainly when ye have
done all that is commtanded you, say we

And with the angels stand.
She has got her reward!
