Tho Poetry ot Homer.
The following artiole was written by a
young colored man, (a son of Israel
Smith, of thift city,) who is being educat?
ed at nu academy in New Haven, Conn. :
Twenty-seven centuries ago a poet
sang his dreams, and the traditions of
his fatherland Ito eager and responsivo
listeners. In the agora, at the gamea, at
ovory festival, crowdo must have gather?
ed, and while ho struck the chords they
smiled, frowned, wept, laughed and tri?
umphed with his words, nor moved until
the last vibration of harp and voice had
Hut the song Btill remains, bringing
again over Greece the halo of the Golden
Age, and touching human. hearts simply
and powerfully now as then. For Homer
came forthvfrom Nature's heart and art?
lessly sang the song of human passions
that will still be fresh through all ages.
He sings tho .story of an undeveloped
Eooplo,' fond of war, loving friends,
ating enemies, ready to forgive the one
and as ?ager to wreak vengeanoe upon
tho other. Ht> pictures the camp, the
sea, trium ph and death so vividly that
we seem io eeo the panorama passing be?
fore .'us.' Thus he sings as years roll on,
arirl "blindness shots him in moro fully
The teeming design of the Iliad was to
oeleb'fat&tbe glory of the Grecian chief?
tains just before tue fall of tho long-re?
sisting Troy; tho spirited Menelaus;
brave and obedient Diornedo; Ajar cruel
and crafty; Agamemnon, inspired with
ambition nh'd" the''love bf power; wise
Ulysses; and Nestor, from whose .tongue
flow words of wisdom sweeter than
honey; but especially to show the glory
of the Thessalian chieftain at this deci?
sivo moment ot bia life. At once Achil?
les stands forth as the vindicator of the
power of the gods, the avenger of
"Cbrysoo, tho priest, who to the Grecian fleet
Game to'xedeom bis daughter, offering
Uncounted ransom." .
He takes his place among theso with
the avowed pre-eminence due his bravery.
He beards the "king of men," the great
prince who ia carrying on the war.
But far greater than this favorite of
fortune, shines Hector, against whom
Achilles used his wonderfully prepared
weapons, and whom ho equaled neither
in temper, fortitude or skill, and whom
he never would have conquered but by
the contrivance of Pallas.
Victim of fate, martyr for his country,
what glory is not due the incomparable
Hector, and what shame covers Achilles
in his ornel joy of dishonoring tho dead
hero. As one has said:
"Tho poem cloaca liko a fanerai march,
So boar they knightly Hector to his grave."
The epithets of Homer contribute
greatly tb tne beauty of tb e poetry. Tho
"Far-datting" Apollo, god of the "Silver
bow;" Jupiter the "Thunderer" and
"Lightener;" Mars the "Crested war?
rior;" the "White-nrmed" and "Large
eyed". Juno; the "Over-roofed" aud
"Wine-colored" waves bring the crea?
tures of the poet's fancy to us with the
color and intensity of life. Throughout
the story are found traces of tbe same
master mind. Yet there are some ex?
tremely beautiful passages into which
the poet seems to havo infused nu unu?
sual amount of fire, rapture aud tender
feeliug. Tho meeting of Hector and
Andromache is a master-piece of pathos.
She hod departed to the walls with her
"When it was told her that the Trojan troops
Lost heart, and that the valor ol tue Greeks
The joy with which she springs to
meet her husband-the comparison of
her boy to a star,
"Fair as tho new born star that gilds tho
her tender appeal to her husband:
"Too brave! thy valor will yet cause thy death.
Thou bast no pity on thy tender child,
?or mo, unhappy one, who soon mnat bo
Thy widow. .##?**
Father, have I none,
And no dear mother? Great Achilles slew
My father, when he sacked the populous town
Of tho Oil icians-Tbobo with high gates.
Seven brothers had I in my father's house,
And all went down to Hades iu one day.
Achilles, the awift.footed, slew them all. * * *
MY mother, princess on the woody slopes
Of Flacos, with his spoils he boro away,
And only for large ransom gavo her back.
But her Diann, archer-queen, struck down
Within her father's palace Hector, thou
Art father and dear mother now to me,
And brother and my youthful spouse besides.
In pity keep within the fortress hero,
Nor make thy child an orphan, nor thy wife
The affectionate, but magnanimous re?
ply of Hector, whoso co irage and patri?
otism compel bim to refuse her prayers,
as he looks with a smile upon his darling
"Scared to see
His father helmeted in glittering brass,"
the prayer of tho father that tho Trojans
may ?ay of his son:
"This man is greater than his father was,"
and that ho might distinguish himself
in war to cheer his mother's heart; the
final separation-tho lamentations of the
maids who "monrn the living Hector as
the dead," are related with such warmth
of feeliug os to make this one of the
most touching scenes over presented.
The monotony of war is beautifully
diversified, for, while Ulysses contends
with tho clements and the gods, Achilles
oontends with men; and Hector's devo?
tion for his home and country is so
different from oither, that their contests
are ever varied and moviug.
When wo listen thus to the story of
the blind old bard, the veil of years is
lifted, and we realize the oneness of
human sympathy, and we are thankful
for tho poet's gift, which warms our
hearts to thoso who loved and suffered
in those long passed years, just ns wo
know that human creatures Iovo and
Tho shoemakers aro in favor of female
suffrage-they manufacture woman's
PROCLAMATION BT N?POMON.-The
Paria Journal Official, ot the 21st, pub?
lishes tho following proclamation by the
Emperor: jj.'! ' N 9[
Frenchmen, the Constitution of 1852,
drawn np in virt?io of powers which yon
gave me, and ratified by 8.0..0.000 of
votos, which ^established the Empire,
has procured for Franco eighteen years
of culm nod prosperity, which have not
been without glory. It has insured or?
der, and left the way open to all improve?
ments. Thus, the more security has
beeu confirmed, the lurger is the part it
has taken in the progress of liberty. But
successive changes have altered tho basis
of the p1ebi8oitaries, which cannot be
modified without an appeal to tho na?
tion. It beoomeB indispensable, then,
that the DOW constitutional pact shall be
approved hy the people, os wore former?
ly tho Constitutions of the Itepublio and
tho Empire at those two epoohs.
It was believed, even OB I myself be?
lieve to-day, that anythiug done without
you was illegitimate. The Constitution
of Imperial and Democratic France may
be reduced to a small number of funda?
mental provisions. These cannot be
changed without your consent. Your
decision will have the advantage- of ron
dering definite tho progress already
made, and of plaoing beyond the influ?
ence of political fluctuations the prin?
ciples of the Government. Time, lost
too often ia barren aud embittered con?
troversies, may. be inore usefully em?
ployed hereafter in seeking for the means
of increasing the moral and material
well-being of the greatest number. I
address myself to all of you who, from
the 10th of December, 1848, surmounted
all obstacles to place me at your bead.
To you who, for twenty-two years, have,
without cessation, guarded me by your
suffrages, sustained me by your co-ope?
ration, and rewarded' me by your affec?
tion, give me a new proof of confidence
in bringing to the ballot-box an affirma?
tive vote. You will exerciso menaces of
revolution. You will place order and
liberty on a solid basis, and you will ren?
der easier in tho future the transmission
of tho crown to my son. You have al?
most unanimously,, for eighteen years,
clothed me with the most extensive pow?
ers; be also equally unanimous to-day in
supporting the transformation of tho
imperial regime. A great nation has no
way of attaining its development without
resting on the institutions which guar?
antee at the same time stability and pro?
To the call which I mnke on you to
ratify the liberal reforms realized during
the last ten years, reply Yes. As for my?
self, faithful to my origin, I shall con?
tinue, penetrated by your thought and
fortified by your will, and confiding in
Providence, to work without cessation
for the prosperity and grandeur of
THE ANTI-RADICAL CONVENTION.-Steps
are being taken elsewhere to arrange for
delegates to tho convention, to be hold
in Columbia, ia June next. Ia Charles
tou, a meeting has been held to make ar?
rangements for calling a mass meeting
of citizen;), irrespective of clus.s or color
for the purpose of carrying out this ob?
This is on the recommendation of the
Press Conference, lately held in the city
of Columbia. Is Newberry to be repre?
sented? lu our view, a couveutiou of
the people, composed of the good and
the wise men of the State from every
District, who are thoroughly acquainted
with the conditiouof their sections, (and
every District requires, in some particu?
lars, a different line of action,) should be
hold. We believe in organized action.
But whether the time urged is not too
early, and whether it would not be best
to wait further developments from the
enemy's camp, aro questions of serious
debate. We have serious doubts, how?
ever, that any means oau now be brought
to bear in turning from their allegiance
those who are blindly following the ad
vico and leadership of radical authority.
Up to tho present time, so it looks. Lot
tho opposition meet, lot them lay their
plane, and then the time for a conven?
tion of those opposed to a bad govern?
ment, to plundering, and unjust taxa?
tion, might be held with better show of
success. A number of other papers are
of tho opiuiou that it will bo wiser to
hold the convention at a later day.
SOUTHERN MEN MALIGNING THE SOUTH,
Thut sterling Democratic paper, the
Manchester (N. H.) Union, speaking of
tho debate in the Senate on the Georgia
bill, says: "The discussion of the Geor?
gia bill was continued hy a couple of
scalawags, Hamilton, of Texas, and Pool,
of North Carolina, in speeches of the
most atrocious character -speeches which
no Northern Senator could make of his
people, end live. They are described as
the 'most blood-thirsty set of out-throats
that God over permitted to live on his
foot-stool.' Now, if tbeso liars and vil?
lains believed this, they would not dare
to say it. They know it is false, for it
can be demonstrated that more murders
have been perpetrated in Massachusetts,
iu the last two yours, than in both North
Carolina and Texas-by the white peo?
ple. We hope some means will bo found
to squelch these lying, iucoudiary scoun?
FIRE IN DARLINGTON DISTRICT.-We
learn from the Durli ngtou Democrat, that
Mr. Abel Caudy, of that District, lost
his burn by fire. Tho cutir? contents,
consisting of about 1,000 bushels corn
und 200 bushels peas, were consumed,
together with several four-horso wagons
and a corriage. It is believed to have
been tho work of an incendiary.
MANNBUS.-Manners aro what vex or
soothe, exalt or debase, barbarize or re?
fine us, by a constant, steady, uniform,
insensible operation, like that of the air
we breathe iu. They give their whole
form and oolor to our lives. According
to their quality they aid mortals, they
supply them or totally destroy them.
AoRiODiyrnnAii AN? IJOatOBAKC CON?
VENTION.-On Tu ea dov next there willi
be assembled in thia oity representatives
of the agricultural and inau?trial inter* |
esta from every section, of the State, and
there will be delegations from Georgia,
and likely from North Carolina, harmo?
nizing in the leading movement of indu?
cing immigrants to settle in the Sooth.
We learn that gentlemen of eminent
attainments and experience have been
invited, aud are preparing reports to be
submitted to the Convention, specially
on the hygienic characteristics of this
State and Southern olimate; on tho
advantages of agricultural education and
its concomitant branches, being more
generally introduced as a branch of study
in our schools and colleges; on the utility
of the culture of various plants, so as to
diversify and render moro certain farm?
ing prosperity; the vast field offered in
this State and throughout the South for
manufacturing; the profitable conversion
of raw cotton into yarns and frnbrics for
export, is promised from a mind of much
ability and cxporienco.
The Committee of Arrangements ap?
pointed by the South Carolina Institute
have been energetically at work, prepar?
ing for the reception and comfort of the
delegates at the Academy of Music, and
an opportunity will be offered to the
ladies and invited citizens and strangers,
who can be comfortably seated, to occupy
the galleries and reserved seats, to
witness the proceedings.
The Floral Exhibition and Regatta, to
take place during tho same week, will
demand our attention hereafter.
We merely suggest to the Committee
of Arrangements that the hotels and
boarding-houses be solicited to offer
every facility to the delegates in readily
obtaining rooms on their arrival. They
come to our city with the highest motives
of duty. Thc object of the Convention
is the advancement of the material wel?
fare of all classes of our people. We
auticipate for it a far-reaching wisdom,
a solution of the problems by which we
are surrounded, and a triumphant suc?
cess.- Charleston Courier.

OPINION OF TUE PUESS.-We take pleasure in
calling the attention of our readers to a very
remarkable medicine, a notice of whioh ap?
peal a in tho Observer thia morning-Heinitsb's
"QUEEN'S DBMO'UT." Thoro moat bo aomo
tbmg in it, for wo hear it spoken ot as a pre?
paration of much merit, and one prepared by
Dr. Heinitsh himself, of distinguished phar?
maceutical reputation. Thu euphonious aOH
briquot, "QCEBN'S DELIOBT," has in itself an
attruction which should commend it to our
lady friends in nocd of so excellent a medi?
cino, and wo suppose all would be benefited

KOSEOO.-The Norfolk Daily Journal, ot
Decembir ll. 18G9, says:
"Phis medicine is rapidly gaining confi?
dence of tho peoplo, and tho numerous testi?
monials of its virtues, given by practitioners of
medicino, leaves no doubt that it ia a safe and
reliable remedy for IMPURITY OF TUE BLOOD,
LIVER DISEASE, Ac."
Tho last Ate Heal Journal contains an arti?
cle from Prof. R. 8. Newton, M. D.. President
of tho E Medi-Collogo, city of Now York, that
speaks in high terms of ita curativo proper?
ties, and gives a special recommendation of
Koskoo to tho praotitioncra of medicine.
This is, wo behove, the first instance whero
such medicinen havo been officially endorsed
by tho Faculty of any of tho Medical Colleges,
ind reflects great credit upon tho skill of Dr.
Lawronco. its compounder, and also puts
"Koskoo" in the VAN of all other medicines
of the present day. F26
