The Phoenix, of the 4th, in a very able
and lengthy article reviews another letter
from Mr. B. F. Perry. We regret not
being able to give it to our readers. In
it Mr. Pcrry is clearly shown to be mis
taken in his views. We are only able to
'give the opening paragraph, which says:
"This second letter of Ex-Gov. Perry, of
course, will be generally rcd; but, at
the same time, we must be normitt:d to
send forth with it to our readers our own
convictions in. relation to the question

has brought forward to sustain his posi

regards his arguments and the conclu

regret that Gov. Perry has felt it to be
his duty, as a mnn prominent in the
councils of this State for many years, to
attempt to make this issue before the

every respect, that such an issue should
be made at a - time when it is utterly
futile-an issue which, even if .seriouslyj
consid. red and the position of its origi

can only be productive of a useless and
damaging discord, where perfect unity
is desirable. As matters now stand in

Pic-nic given by the Young Ladies of the
Wednesday, the first of May, was ap
pointed by the young Ladies of the College,
for a pie- ie ; but the indie:aions tor beau1
tiful day, were alegether in.favorable.
Clouds were floating in different parts of
the firmament, threatening rain, and seemed
to blight the brightest ::nticipations of many;
but old Sol soon rlade his appearance, al
nature wore a smiling faice, and, on observ
ing the elements, every one's heart throbbed
with gladness. The r?seate fn-ers ofrmorn
ing were unclasped from Ueneathi the hori
zon, an I many soils .sang prai'es to the
birth-day of May. Bein.g one of the invited,
at ;,n early hour, full of anxiety, I hastened
from my domicile to the Depot, and passed
nny a cheerful and l'py thee, that was
soon to become nmy acquaintance. At S
o'clock A. MI., all began to assemble on the
train, which Mr. Bowel s so kindly oflered
us, and also his assistance, and in a few
minutes, every thing beilg in readinss, tie
sunmnmons was given "all aboard." Old
Nc%uberry was soon io,t sight of in the dis
tanee, and, in a very short while, the party
arrived at the place of destination, the far
famed pleasure ground known as O'Neal:'s
Mills on Bush River.
The Earth, the green daughter of nature,
seemed to enjoy the scene of so many fair
and lovely faces of the dauzhters of Eve.
There she sa t in her shape of wonder a::d
face of grace, with wild flowers covering
her breast, and, in silence, bade welcome
to her guests. The acquaintance of the
party being conparatively init?d, some
one was needed to beginh the CjOvIent.
Presently Mr. L. M. was seen and we knew
then, th.at ";all would soon be right ;" that
we Vonld all soon becomne acquainted.
Friend after friend was introduced, and, in
very short time, we became as one family
of pleasure lovers, amid the melodies of the
deep-voiced wood ; where wild winds blew
with fitful c.dence. Capt. Me. also assisted
very naterially in seeing that all enjoyed
thems lves. Capt. W. and Jimmy L. soon
were seen with the ix isses, and showed that
they were determined, that tine Misses should
enjoy themselves, and they did too. We
talked merrily, played cheerily, and eatplen
tifully ; for, in a word, it was a sun;ptuous
repast. Great was th etaste and skill!avishned
upon the -occasion. Group after group
arrived around thne table to claim the hospi
tality of "mine host." Every thing proved
that the Rev. J. T. Zealy, the principal of
the College, understands as well how to
cater to the pleasures of the heart, the soul,
and the body, as to the stores of the brain,
and no one should hesitate in saying that
1.e is the right man in the right place.
There was present on that occesion from 1.50
to 200 persons. The afternoon was spent
as pleasantly as the forenoon. Thne allotted
time of our visit, spent in a round( of pleas
ure, had flowa away, the shades of.evening
were veiling the ground in the.grey dew of
twilight, atid we must depart from long-to
be-remembered scenes of joy. "All aboard"
being announced, we soon found ourselves

ly conference of this station commenced
its session in the Methodist Church on
Friday last, and terminated on Sunday
night, after a highly interesting and
profitable session. The attendance on
Sabbath morning and night was gratify
ingly large, the largest that we have ever
seen in this church, while the great
congregation listened with rapt and
breathless attention to the sacred word
as it dropped from the eloquent lips of
the Rev. W. II. Fleming, the Presiding
Elder. The sermon of the night seemed
to us the most able of the two, but
perhaps it was not; though MIr. Fleming
improves to the ear, the mind and the
heart with each successive address, rising
superior with each flight. IIe is happy
in a graceful, easy delivery, clear, and
forcible, and every sentence, every word
makes itself a point; may he long be

and right hands:mly presented, was the
artistic and elegant cake which found its
way to our retreat on Saturday night,
hon the hands of Mons. L. Schodair and
his agreeable lady. It was' a charming
surprise, coming thus unexpectedly. A
cake so beautiful in design seemed only
made to be admired, to be gazed at, and
to be feasted, on in i:magination. This
was not a feast of reason however, and
the flow of soul was unsatisfying. An
irresistible curiosity to see the interior,
to taste, to be satisfied that it was good,
urged the cutting. A fter thinking and
dreatning over it for a night, we did cut,
wve cut and cut again, it was g--oa, de

was too good to last, or every one of our

which though delivered without previous

Judge T. J. Pope, followed very appro

twenty minutes. These mieetings are as

we trust they may be continued.
We have been requested to state that
there will be a teprnemeeting on
Saturday, the 1st of June, at Mount

be delivered by the Rev. W. S. Black,
