To a host of friends in iha "Palmetto
State," th's ead announcemsent v.li he re

beloved by his associates, and stnnding high
in the esteem of his fellow-citszens, has

In the late war with Mexico, when the

the storming of Chapultepec, Iis gallant
bearing at that time won for him unitding
laurels, and he was nresented by his native
city with a sword as an acknowledgment
dtk' from an admiring people to a brave
soldier. At the commencement of the
emgration to California, lie was one of the

"WHAT ARE BIRDS GOOD Fot"---Tt
American Agriculturist for December, i
newer to this inquiry, relates the followin
"In connection with this subject, we wi
ive an anecdote related to us last wint<
y Gov. Aiken, of South Carolina, of th
rice birds. 'T'hese littlo creatures gathe
round the rice fields at harvest time i
ountless myriads, and of cours
onstuno considerable grain. Some yea
Igo it was determined to make war upo
hem, and drive them out of the countr
nd the measure was in some degree sue
essful, so far as getting rid of the bird;
What are birds good fort' The rice pint
or soon found out; for with the decrease t
iirds, the worms increased so rapidly tha
nitead of a few scattering grains to fee
he birds, the whole crop was demanded I
ill the insatiable maw of the army th:
anie to consume every young shoot as fai
ia they sprung from the ground. Mlo
undoubtedly the birds were invited hac
gain with a hearty welcome. Ricecannt
)e cultivated without their assistance.
"A sw years ago the blackbirds in th
mrthern part of Indiana were considered
trievous nuisance to the farmer. Wltol
le!ds of oats were sometimes destroyc
mod the depredations upon late corn wer
!reater that can he believed, if told. h'l
arsmers sowed and the birds reaped. I
scolded and they twittered. Occasionall
charge of shot brought down a score, btu
undo no more impression upon the grew
ea of birds than the removal of a singl
ucket of water from the great salt puddh
k few years later every green thing on th
and seemed destii ed to destruction by th
trny worn. Man was powerless-a wort
inong wor.ns. But his best friend, tht
mttd blackbirds, came to his relief just i
ime to save when all seemel lost. No ht
ian aid could hmve helped him. Hos
hankful should roan be that God has give
im for his companions and fellow-laborers
n the cultivation of the earth, those lovel
iirds. 'The laborer is worthy of his hire
Why should we grudge the little 'moiet

public meetings, the Pss and the Legislature
-have signifled theirdisaprobation of his course;
and it is equally certain, that Mr. FooTE's seat
In the Senate has not been vacated. Ifidecalar
tion would seem to indicate, that he was a man
of the finest sensibility; but his acts are wholly
iucoasistent with that declaration, evinolug an
utter want of pride, of truth and of dignity.
With regard to the discontent of the people of
Mississippi, as expressed through their public
meetings, he say,that it is but the ebulition of an
effervescent excitement, which means nothing,
and that the people of that State do not in reall
ty know their own sentiments. But even grant
ing, that they are in the full possession of that
amount of intelligence, which it would seem is
requisite to insure them In a knowledge of their
own thoughts and wishes upon this particular
subject, Mr. F. can only recognise, in the fact of
his being invited home, the prevalence of that
suicidical policy, which would induce the child
to throw off the protection of the parent ; and
he gives the world to understand that the article,
patriotism, enters much too largely into his corn
position to permit of his allowing his loved but
unloving Missisippi to commit any act so sub
versive of her own interests, as that of ridding
herself of his services.
With regard to the attacks of the Press, ho
professes a supreme contempt " for newspaper
scribblers," intimating, that their shafts when
aimed at so exalted an object as himself, are as
harmless as the arrows of the Lilliputians.
With regard to the resolutions passed by the
Legislature condemnatory of his course ; he has
the unblushing effrontery to assert, that the gen
tleman who compose that body, although en
lightened and patriotic, are yet guilty of misrop
resenting the people, in the passago of such res
olutions. So that, when the Press and the Leg
islature declare, that Mr. Foo-r msisrepresen
sents his constituents, they are themselca min.
representing the people ; and when the people
themselves declare, that Mr. Foon misrepre
sents them, they do but misrepresent their own
views and feelings. Surely this particular por
tion of the universe was neverdestined to figure
upon canvas-o difficult in it of representation.
But then does not some one represent it ! Oh
yes ! Mr: Foo-r does. Happy Mississippi!
happy in the possession of a servant who knows
her better than she knowa herself and loves her
better than she loves herself. So others may
think, and exclaim; but as for us, we ore in
clined to the opinion, that the case of Mississip
pi is much like that of" Sinhal, the sailor "
that she has saddled herself with an " old man
of t'ne sea," and that it will take something more
than woris to dislodge him from his seat.
The circumstnnes, attendant upon a sojourn
in Wasnington, are clothed with a degree of at
tractiveneus far greater than that which invests
the simpler features of the distant homestead ;
and the people of Mississippi may long in vain
for the presence of their benefactor. Thoughts
of home have no charms for him ; nor can the
touching plaint of the exile-" home, sweet
homo"-find a responsive echo in is bosom.
le is detenmined to stay it out; and not all the
allurements employed by the Syrens-not the
picture of all his social enjoymnents--not even
the nticixntion of the caresses to be muul at the
hands or the jvenile Feete-can move him
from his determination-or from Washington.

May the phruso be stricken from our La Ip e I
I am tired, Sir, of all this cant about the glori
ous union, and I want to see our District paper a
little more Southern ; strictly southern. Sir; de.
voting more of its columns to our local interests,
and in my humble opinion, it can advocate noth
ing better than tha completion of the W. and
M. It. Road.
Edit.-I feel, my dear Sir, that the press
might really have hastened the completion of
this enterprise, and I scarcely know what upolo
gy snake for my former neglect.
Sun.-Mslake none, Sir, but let our acts for the
future, atone for your former neglt-et. Press up
on the people, the importance of this Road ; and
do this often ; not once a year, by making a
short quotation fromi a Wilmington paper, but
let it be dune as it ought to be, by editorial ad
dresses, &c ; and tihen you may think you do
the State some service.
Edit.-I will take your reproof In good part,
and will endeavour to act upon your advise.
The Road, I know, is slowly, too slowly, reach
ing completion ; I know the capitalists abroad
are not suflisientdy awake to the advantages ths't'
enterprise otIers them ; I know that if they
were front time to time inforned ofit, progress;
they would soon becom-. better disposed to sub.
scribe ; I know, toou. that without additional
stock being taken, the Ibtond will not likely be
completed, and those of our citizens who have
spent their money and labor upon the work will
lose seriously, unless the lRoad is finished ; and
Sun.-Youtkuow enough, Sir, to awaken your
dormant energies; rouse yourself and make your
Iaper what it pronnid to be, the organ of Sum
ter District, the eneoura-ser of its enterprises.
By this course, you will regain the good opinion
you have lost, anl acquire; that of many which
you do not now enjoy. Devote a portion of
your paper to thi, tecouratsam--n .t of this hail
Ioad enterprise; give all the news that is in
any way ronnetedl w'ith it ; note its progress
from time to time ; conma'ent upon the work,
and thereby createi a spirit of rivalry amongst
the contrnctors ; stimulate them to greater exer
