Fa rewe . farewell is often heard
From 0e lips'of those who part:
'ie whispering tone-'tis a gintle word,
Bit it springs not from the heart.
It, may serve for the lover's closing lay.,
To be sung 'neath a summer's sky;
But givem4 the quivering-lips that say
The Iioes "Words-"Good 'bye I"
Adieu I adisu! may greet the ear,
I, the guise of courtly speech;
B t wheri we leave the kind and dear,
Y. -'Tie not what the soul would teach.
Whene'er we grasp the hands of those
We- would have forever nigh,
~ Thie.flame of friendship bursts and glows
In warm, frank words-"Good bye."
Tlie mother sending forth her child
To meet with cares and strife,

* f earse
For the loved one's future life.
No ld "adieu," no "farewell" lives
Within her closing sigh;
- But the'deepestsob of anguish gives
"God bless thee, boy!"-"Good bye!"
Gol Iwatch-the pole and dying one,
Vhen the glance has lost its beam
When the brow is cold as the marble stone,
-And-the world a passing dream;
AridVthe -latest pressure of the hand,
The look of the closing eye,
'Yield what the heart must understand,

DiVINITir OF PRINTIN.-God was the
first Printer: le gave from his hand amid
thobkick-tess of Sinai, the mind of Goil
the decalogue of all moral law, the claim
ofjnimiiupon'man, anti God upon all.

to-posterity, innumerable millions yet un
born of God, the thoughts of living men;
of inen ,who.lived centuries since. They
def lime, and the printed manuscript of
these men shall live, too full of soul to be
put iu the 1a rave with their perishable
bodies. Irfais ight thought in that
author whoi, in his dying moments, was
just able to ask if the proof of his last
work was correct, all corrected! Yes, all.
Then I shall have a complete edition in

LovE RnYvis.---It is singular how much
amatory poetry is written before marriage,
and how little after it. One may have but
little of "the vision an(] the faculty divine,"
but on fallingin love he finds that he is
not without the "accomplishment of verse."
This lets us into the secret why there are
so many unsuccessful wooers. 'Sir,' said
a lady to a gentleman who had addressed
to her a copy of verses, and who afterwards
solicited the honor of her hand-"Sir, I
admire your person and esteem your char
acter; your manners are pleasing, and
your disposition engaging-but-/our poe
try is execrable. I could never love a
wvriter of such verses.'
Capt. Thornton, on his arrival at Rich
mond, said that Amipudia was the first
man he saw after the battle of the 9th of
May. Amnpudia pointed out to Captuin
Thornton his saddle, perforated with two
bullet holes, but they were ini the rear of
the saddle, and it wvas v'ery plaini that they
were fired wvhen Ampudia wias with his
back, and not his face to the foe. Hlereaf
ter it may be said, wvhen a man is shot in
the back, that lie wvas "AMP.UDIA-ted."

.Cuaious LEGACY.---hr. Tustin, late
Chaplain to Congress, has hadl a call to thb
-,'Presbyteria n Church in Hagerstowni, Md.
Mr.IHughi Kennedy, who died some years
ago, left a small annuity to that church oin
condition that they should sing nothing hut

-from this they lose the legacy, which a
rnounts to 8800 per annum.
"AND~so-FoRTH.---A very witty man
walked up to an oyster stanud, which bore
upon it, as a sign, "Ogstcrs, 4.c.," and laid
dowvn a nIne pence, saying lhe wvould take'
that m oney'si worth of "and-so-fortha." Up.
on this the keeper of the stand very quietly
pocketed the cash and counted out to the
joker twelve empty shells, observing that
the-oysters had been eaten, and that these
were their ''and-so-forthIs.''

THLE SU.WITEt BeaW.JYER.
UNDER tfie abi~ve Title, it is proposed to
publish a paper in the 'Town of Sumter
ville. - The paper will be"'issued weekly,
'n the morning of every Wednesday.
It is believed, that Sumter District af
fords as nuny capabilities for sustaining a
weekly newspaper, as a medium of'Adver
tisenient, General News and Business, as
any of her sister Districts in the State; and,
confiding in this belief, we invite, to our
columns, the attention of those, both in
this and the surrounding Districts, who
may be desirous of advertising and see fit
to do so. It is well known, that the sup
port of a paper in general, depemnds not so
much on the magnitude of its subscription
list, as on the advertising patronage which
it may receive. This is the case in cities.
In a country Town, however, and District,
as this.i4 we must depend on tiho patron
age boih of subscribers and advertisers.
We hope, then, that our enterprise w ill niot
fail from want of encourigen ent.
A strict attention will be paid to the lo
cal interests of the Town and District, and]
we shall endeavor to'keep up, if necessary,
tihe spirit and enthusiasm, which nsow ex
ists, in regard to the connexioin of Sumter
with Charleston and Wilmington, (N. C.)
by Rail Road.
In Politics, Tun llANNER will be strict.
ly Dcmocratic, and will give a firm support
to the National Administration, so fhr as
it cnformns to the principles upon which
it secured the support of the Democratic
party at the South.
Tihe assistance of a friend, fully compe
tent to the task, has been sected for (te
editorial department. It is not deened
necessary to mnake an expositiot of the
great svuriety of matter that will bo con
tuIined in the pages of our paper; suffice it
say. that no pains will be spared to render
it an acceptable visiter in every family in
the District. The undersigned trusts. that
the late failure in the attempt to establish
a paper in this place, will not be permitted
to operate unfavorably upon his enterprise.
The paper will be prinmed on a super.
royal sheet. with five columns to the page,
at Two Dollars anm F.fty Cents, if puid in
advance, Three Dollars, at the expiration
of six months, or Three Dollars and Fifty
Cents, at the end of time year.
