Savannah, Ga., January 10th, 1805.
Envy me not a southern Girl
I'm tired of the name
This potup and boat was once my pride
But now it is my shame .
Oh how 1 grudge the Northern girl
I1er jewels rich and rare
l'tr diamonds grace her snowy neck
And pearls bedeck her hair
(tI horuts)-- IIurrah-hturvah
For cAlico so fair;
I'm tired of this homespun dress
That southern ladies wear
Now nortlhern goods we c-annot get
Because of Abe's bloekade
And we are forced to be content
Witi goods thats southern made
We cannot' buy a yard of ailk
Or piece of northerf lace
But have to wear our homespun goods
At every time and place
'(Cltorus)-Ilurralth-hurrah & cir
My homespun dress is plain and coatbe
Aly hat's palmetto too
The tUnsy thing will soon wear out
And then what, will I do !
Our beaux are conscripts in the War
1ut that we do not wind
lecause we know that they'll desert
And leave old Jeff behind
Our lads are driven from their humee
And dare not aeet the foe;
but we will coquet with the yanks
Till they cone back you know
''ho yanktee boys are cleverfellows
ne to te er me
I love their greenbaeks too
I think I'll go and take the oath
And- then nice goods I'll buy
Sich as the northern Ladies wear'
Who dross so handsomely
I'll choose me then a lover gay
With greenbacks gpite a roll
The la4 that has the largest. pile
Can have my heart and soul
And now young men a word to you
If you would Win the fair
Go whore nice prints are to be had
youl find their hearts ar there
Itemember homespan goods are played
1e value them no more
Our tears are falling for the goods
The yankees have in store

Th,' P gervation of Timber,
I. the October number of the "Journal of
the 'rankliry Institute," there is a valuabtw
paper on ti' 'Preservation of Wood In Darw
and Wet 8i!ations." That the subject
one of "vast though unheeded importan '
will appear from the following statis a:
The annual drain which is exhaustin our
forests is sttutling, whet" we remember the
vast areas of.ourcountry utterly destitute
of titber-n"hen we learn, for instance, that
upon the 55,00) square miles of Illinois
there grows not a single pine tree large
enough fromo which to fashion a' board. Sta
tistius show that in 1806. about 5,000,000,
1100 feet of lumber, 2,000,000,000 of shingles
and 900,000.000 picee.4 of laths Wor-s sold
in Chicago alone. Mchtigan and Wisconsin
almost entirely surply . titat market. Six
ihousand tet of pino lumber per acre Is an
average yield. No formal calculati.n is
necessary to sltow that, with the present
demand, a single generation will exhaust
the supply those 8tates can atford. hint the
consumption increases in a rapid ratio. It
has alrestdy raised the prices. Clear lumber
sold for$8 Bper thouisand in 16, for $24

we d that in situations so free from mtois
ttTro t at we may psrticularly call them dry,
the du bility of timber isalmost unlimited.
The ro of Westininister Hall is more than
450 pears 61d. In Sterling Castle, Scotland

preserved-. Scotch fir hrei been found in

silica of St. laul Rome, were sound and good
after 1,000 years of service. Wood con
stantly wet in fresh water is quite as dura
ble. Piles were dug from the foundations
of Old Savoy Palace, London, in a perfectly
sonnd state, after having been down 650
years. t'Ie piles of Old London Bridge
were found sound antl perfect 800 years after
they were driven. iit our timber, that at
one time appeared'to'M inexhaustible, is be.
coming scarce atl mi'e costly, not gnly
because of its careless consumption, but by
waste also and the destf'otion of insects.
We do not yet feel the fRl effects of this,
but the next generation 1ill, and. it is no
less a duty than a matter of economy to give
a wide publicity to the fabt that. the duration
or wear of timber can be dhdbled; trebled,
or even quadrupled, by ad'opting the proper
