Address National Publhinrg Co., At
.Doolittle, in o speech in the Senate
tecentry, said1 "t:at when Latium, a
Romani province, revolt-ed, and the re
voit .xas suppressed, the question arose
'in the Roman Senate, what shall be done
with L;aidom and the people of Latium ?
T~here were somec who cr ed disfranchise
thei-others said confiscate their pro
.perty;'there were no'ne who said sub
ject tliem. ini vatsalage to their slaves;
* uu 01ld Carnillus, in that speech which
- evealed his greatness and made his namie
. immortal, said : 'Senators, mzake them
voor fellow citizens, aid thus add to the
power and glory of Rome,' Doolittle
a add1ed ; 'In this high place-this Senate
of the great -epublie of the world-out
of the growth of the civ'iliz-ation of all
ages, cannot we, Senators, rise to the
height of that great argumer.t ?
Alas t we fear they cannot irise, they
bare fallen so low. Statcsmianship has
declined ; m:,gnaniuity departed ;mercy
a dead letter ; trut b, justice and right
almost unknown on;g them;f. Rome
crumbled for centurie-s before she ex
pired. The light of civil libet ty in the
model repuhlic of the 19th century is ex
tiniguished in its incipiency. Iligher law,
the offspring of that fruitful mother
Puritanism-which has given bith to a
host of toririble isms and utopian schemes,
materially as.-iste-d in the downfall of
the Uniite4 States, cre it had r-eached
nieridian greatness. Its -up of joys, lav
islhly filled by a muniticent Providence,
has be-come a poisoned chalice, and we
drink deeply of its dregs of death.
What a spetacle for the world ! America
without stat-sme-n ! She n ho but yester
day, at it were, proulaimed herself the era
dle of liberty. and ereme de la cremie of the
world ; the land of statesmeon, initelligene,
refinement and elegance ; the school of lat
ter-day art -- nd science, nmarchinig with the
impision of a new birth, and ini the dawn
of a physical millennium, when about to
realize her dream of plenitude and grasp
. the golden fruitage, is hurled madly, n.ildly
back, back to the days of the past. And
disrob. d of her beautiy, she lanuguishe's in
tribulation. Infidelity, thirst for riches,
the pride of material greatness, and a
voluptuousness that discarded the hardy
virtues of de-parted sires, heroic men, and
noble women, who ilemed and adorned the
a people 'everything to be miserable.'
A heterogeneous north destroyed a homo
geneous south. The former with its mate
rial power, and the latter its conservative
elements, might have devoloped a system
of civilizttion that would have rivalled all
others, but the want of forbearatice forbade
it ; (how often do men or nations forbear
with one another.) The strong impose pains
and penaltie.; upon the weak ; and the in.
herent right to act legitimately for oneself,
-even, is often leuied by the arrogant.
Once it was declared heresy to think-and
heretics were plnished with death.
The robust, thi- impudent and the arro
gant may affiect to despisc or override the
modest, the unpretentious and the unas
suming. The elegancies of Southern soci
ety in like manner, were not agreeable to
shoddy and the miscegenating freelover,
and others, who jostled theniselve into
the high places of gove-1nient, &e., and so
impudence, and cheek, rule the hour, ind
the country goes from bad to worse.
And what will be the complexion of the
next congress ? If there are no statesmen
equal to the expansive wants of the country
nuw, what will be its condition in the
near fuiure with preponderating ignorance,
venality, and eupidiiy. Where are the
legislators to come from who willjustly per.
form a thottsandth part of th. work to be
done. The difference between the next
body and. the present, in point of intelli
cgence, &., -%ill be as great as that betu cen
the present and the past. And (unless
there is a reformation) the country will
doubtless have reached the substratum of

From -all we can learn, it is the openly
express d inatention of two-thirds of tl-e
planters of Soutnwestern Georgia to
not only conduct their planting iinterest
on at much less extensive scale thn the
past season, but wiill give more atten

less cotton. This is as it should be.
Those planters, even, who raised en.ough
corn to provision for even two or three

exper-ience little or no difficulty in comn

There were several interesting debates
between the colored delegates on mea
sure of relief for the people. It was
urged on one hand by the extremists,
that the whites owning property about
to be sacrificed at sherifr's sale, aught
to suffer 1-y -reason of participation in
the war ; on the other hand, that sales
would be made to speculators and stran

exorbitant rates, forbidding the develop
ment of enterprise.
A special order being the resolution of
F. J. Moses, Jr., for a petition to Gen.
Canby for a three month's stay of exe
cutions was taken up.
T. J. Robertson, by permissin, read
an argument. ngainst the resolution. The
points he made were that the men who
wanted the Stay-law were the5ecession

T. J. Robertson took the statement
about intimidation to himself, and inter

MARtRIED.-We notice in the Bonham
Texas News, that Mr. Charles Bailey, one
of the proprietors of that excellent pa
per, and a hi other of that no less excel
lent fellow, Bailey, of our town, familiar
ly known as 'old Ned' of sweet memory,
has gone and married, lie was driven to
the deed through ambition to keep up
with the Sherman Courier man, who did
the same thing a week previous, and so
turned the 'biled' side of his linen out,
and rushed incontinently into matrimo
ny with the beautiful and charming Miss
Ella. We don't know Charley the hap
py, but venture if he is as clever as 'old
Ned,' that Miss Ella and himself will go
on their way rejoicing. Here's our [F,
DIsTtc-T CoURT--Judge Pope, presi
ding.-The Sessions docket in this court
was greater than we anticipated, and
t te cases mostly larceny and assaults,
while the common pleas docket was light;
together howev%r the was work labo
rious and called for the exercize of much
patience. The admirable practical abil
ities of bench and bar were evidenced
in the facility with which the cdnfused
and knotty-web of business was gone
through with, and which happily ena
bled his Honor to discharge his jury at
an early hour on Thursday afternoon.
Ours was not the high honor of making
one of the "intelligence" this time for
tunately, it being a mixed affair and col
ored, half white and half black, and hav
ing no particular business in, court, but
considerable outside, we were prevented
giving as close attention as we would
like to have done; therefcre the report is
brief. We noticed however with pleas
ure, during a L.asty visit, a respectable
attendance of the Bar, with each a pile
of law and evidence before them, and
among.whom we mention our esteelned
Solicitor, Col. Fair, as keen in the exer
cise of iegal lore and wit as in the good
days of old, Gen. Garlington, Maj. Bax
ter, Maj. Jones, S. Chapman, Esq., and
the Messrs. Spearman. Majors Suber
and Sonmer, and Benson Jones, Esq.
being absent from town. All gentlemen
of eminent legal ability, and of whom as
a Bar Newberry is justly proud. The
colored portion of the community, who
are so largely interested in the district
court, have had another evidence of zeal
in their behalf on the part of the counsel,
and should be deeply grateful, although
in the majority of the cases, !acts proved
too stubborn to be overcome to their ad
vantage. It is time that they learn, that
to avoid punishment they must commit
no crime against the law.
The "cases" must have been hard ones,
and with guilt transparent in their faces,
or else the "intelligence" were in haste,
and were indifferent as to the d,llars and
cents which each day's sitting added to
the'r wealth, for- the almost invariable
and very speedy finding was "guilty."
It was clear that this mixed body of ju.
rors wifo "sot" under the drippings cf
his eloquent Honor, and who were fre
quently, as we were told, inandated, and
sometimes almost carried away with the
torrents of beautiful oratory and ima
gery from Solicitor and Bar, had their
eyes "skint," and exercised wondlerfl
judgment under the lead of the "little
corporal," o-calUed by the old 13th in~
war times, and now the foreman. No
time was lost with the "records" to the
relief of the court. Intelligent 'ixture!'

DEB-r.-"Debt is a perfect bore, isn't it?
how it haunts a man from pillar to post;
lurking in his breakfast cup, poisoning
his dinner, embittering his tea ! how it
stalks from him like a living, moving,
ike'eton, seeming to anneunce his pres
ence by recotunting the amount of liabil
ities. How it poisons his domestic joys,
by introducing its infernal 'balance' into
the calculation of madam respecting the
price of a new carpet, or a new dress!
At bed and board by night or day, in
eyor grief, in health or sickness, at
home or abroad-debt-grim, gaunt and
No CaRM-We have been much ex
orci:ed of Late.on the subject of no cre
dit. Last year some of our leading mer
chants closed on the old and ruinous
system of 'booking,' while others tried
but failed through lack of firmness, and
while the one is satisfied and easy in
mind, the other grieves without conso
lation. When will our inerchants and
people learn sense, and profit by expe
rience? Let us all try this year, neither
to give or ask for abominable credit, and
it %vill .ie the death which will have no
resurrection, for when once finally laid
away in its winding sheet, such will be
the general comforr and rejoicing, that
no one will be stui>id enough to unearth
the monster, whose hid(ous mien brings
discomfoi t, and ruin on buyer, and seller.
Pay as you go, let that be the motto, and
our word for it it will work to the gen
eral good. As a move in that direction
we propose Ihat the merchants, large and
small, meet togeier, compare notes, and
fix upon a card to the -public, stating
their determination to give no more cre
dii, to good, bad or indifferent, sign the
notice, and we will publish it for next to
nothing. Try it merchants; no one can
be offended when the thing is ro gencraL
We feel interested and want it, and won't
have any more credit, so far as this local
Desn Swift says, he never knew a man
rise to eminence who lay in bed of a
morning; Dr. Franklin says,' he who
rises late may trot all day, but never
overtake his business.
SpicE.-"The Landlady's Daughter,"
from the German of Ubland, is one of
those strange and startling conceits
which no other language attempts.- Let
it heed our Spice canin
There came three students over the RhinC
Dame Werter's hon,e they entered in;
"Dune Werter, hast thou good beer and wine ?
And where's that lovely daughter of thine!"
"My beer and my wine are fresh and clear
My daughter is lying coit on her bier,"
They itepped within the chamber of rett,
W here shrined lay the maiden, in blusk robes
The first he drew from her face the veit;
"Al I wert thou alive, thou maiden so pale,"
Ile said, as he gazed with siddened br.w,
"Hlow dearly would I uve thee nowl"
The second he cove-ed the face anew,
Ard, weeping, he turned aside from the view;
"Ah me! that thou liest on the bier,
The one I have -loved for so many a year!"
The third once more upifted the veil,
lie kissed the [:ps so deadly pale; .
"['hee loved I ever, still love I thee,
And thee will I love through eternity ."
And that kiss-that kiss-with Promethean
Thrilled with new life'the quivering frame;
And the maid u.prose and stood by his side,
That student's own loved and loving .bride!

"Forgive me, hat I needs must press
One question, since I love you so;

It is about our marriage day.,
