To Miss S. E. II x. f ...
With Tnllie's tongue oh! could I speak
In tmth I must confess.
My powers then would be too weak, "
My wind for to express.
Oh! could I write with Homer's pen,
In golden letters too; , .
Alas, Li vain would I pretend
To express my love to you.
Your hair so bright in beauty curls, ,
Around your modest cheeks;
More beautiful than all the pearls
That's gathered from the deeps.
Your dark and sparkling eyes they arc,
An index to your heart;
They speak of treasures seated there,
Which never can depart
Upon your cheeks there dwells ablush,
That won my very soul;
They cause my troubled thoughts to hush,
And all my powers control.
Your ruby lips no painter's art,
Such beauty can portray;
Your voice the music does impart
The 6weetcst melody.
The rose, the pink, the liliy too,
Of beauty all may boast,
But when they are compar'd with you,
Their beauties are all lost.
No flower that blooms was ever known,
In half such beauty dressed;
No object here on earth I own,
Does half such charms possess.
I never can describe yonr charms,
Neither my love to thee,
Until I fold you in my arms,
Then happy will I be.

Cuba Order of the Lone Star The New Invasion.
The Cuba movement of the Lone Star society is go
ing forward. We refer our readers to the proceedings,
in this paper, of a meeting of the Order in this city,
last Saturday night, at which a splendid emblemati
cal breastpin was presented to Dr. Wren, the special
agent from New Orleans societies. It will be seen
that, although there is an air of mvstery thrown
over the great end of their organization it can only
point in one direction, and to one specific object to
Cuba, and the liberation of Cuba.
The intelligence which we published yesterdav,from
Havana,- contains the developments." in other quar
ters, of an extensive conspiracy ia Cuba aud in the
United States, for the bloody overthrow of the Span
ish despotism of Vthe Beautiful Island." The gov
ernment officials appear to be moving heaven and
earth for the detection and apprehension of the lea
ding conspirators in Havana, the publishers of El
Vox del Pueblo Cbano,he Voice of the Cuban Peo
, pie): but it is evidence that the great cause of ap
prehension is the organized body of svmpathizers
known to exist in this country. Good" reason, :oo
have the authorities of Cuba to be stunned concern
ing the force aud movements of the "jii;butros
Americanos;" for if the documents and facts rela
ting to the Lone Star association, which we have
already commuted on, are reliable and authentic,
then, indeed, are the foreshadowed invasion and rev
olution of Cuba apparently inevitable.
For the present, we present to our readers, as cir
cumstantial proof of the formidable character of this
conspiracy, the following catalogue, which has been
furnished us, of some, and only some of the leading
members of the secret ''Order of the Lone Star," in
New Orleans, Washington and New York. Wo give
the list as we have received it, without vouching for
its accuracy, though it is supposed to be substantially
XEW ORLE INS.
Dr. Warren, Special Agent to New York; Major
Ueiss, of the Delta; -Gen. Felix Houston: Gen. Geo.
Washington Dixon, and five thousand others.
Hon. Stephen A. Douglass. U. S. Senate; Hon. D.
L. Yulee, late Senator from Florida; Hon. Isaac P.
Walker, aud forty or fifty others.
Geo. Law, Government Contractor and Steamboat
owner: Howland k Asninwoll, do. doubtful; Corneli
us Vanderbilt great frteauiboat owner, (sure): Daniel
Delevan, Sachem of Tammany Hall: Jus.-Watson
Webb, leading editor in Wall street, an ! a number of
(he Wall street capitalists; Geo. N. Sanders, of the
Democratic Preview; Thomas Devia Reilly, Irish ed
i!or do; Isaiah Rynders, Captain of the Empire Club
one thousand strong: Enoch E. Camp, orator: The
Cuban Juntn. Cuban Creoles, capitalists aud oihexs;
. MoYi "Beocli, ami wni.. it.B
Hound Island fillibasters: Halt ot lammany Society;
A portion of the Whig Executive committee; John
J. Smith of tbe Bowery; Geo. Washington Seaggs,
Cortland street Quite a number of California steam
ship captains, and lialf their ships crew, rank and
file, the whole of the Association of New York,
amounting to to several thousand men.
Now, we venture to say, that no man will or can
li; pute the strength and terrible import of a secret
revolutionary organization, numbering among its fif
teen thousand members in the United States such an
imposing catalogue of capitalists, military chieftains,
lawyers,, statesmen, and politicians, as are here com
bined together in tbe sacred, secret, but avowedly
revolutionary, "Order of the Lone Star." Here we
have mca to furuish the sinews of war, including
cash, steamers, munitions and provisions, and mus
kets and artillery (second-hand,) to any amount
The very materials intended for Hungary and Italy
are thus directed to a practical object w ithin point
Uank striking distance. Whether the thirty thou
sand dollars of the Irish Directory has been invest
ed in stocks of the Lake Superior mines, or the Cali
fornian gold mines, or the New Jcrsyzinc mim-s. we
have no means of knowing; but if not otherwise ab
sorbed, we should not be surprised at all if this same
Irish sinking fund were also impropriated to tbe in
vasion of Cuba, And why iij.t? The conquest of
Cuba, by an invading force fr'un our shores, would
probably result in fomenting war with England
and that is the hour for which Ireland is wanting to
strike. We see, therefore, no reason why this Irish
fun(j including the five hundred dollars subscribed
by Archbishop Hughes should not be turned over
to the order of tbe Loue SiarJ for the liberation of
Cuba. 'v. .
It was reported in the island that (he revolution
was expected to be opened as ciirly as November.
Any time between November and March next will be
highly favorable for the movement The season of
the year will be propitious, and a temptation in it
self to join the invasion; and the advantage, in a
political view, will be such as can only happen be
tween the outgoing of one administration at Wash
in"4on, and the incoming of another. At that peri
odour government will be in a state almost amount
in" to suspended animation; and the work can be
accomplished, as it might iu fact, have been accom
plished in the last expedition, before the government
could bring any organized means of resistance to
bear against it -Y w York Herald.
fcS The effect of railways in promoting and ex
tending civilisation is a favorite theme with philan
thropists. But the most sanguine believer in that
great instrumentality of progress never predicted the
remarkable result attributed to their construction, m
the annexed paragraph from the Chicago Tribune.
A few years since the depredations of wolves abso
lutely discouraged the raising of sheep in Illinos:
The Wolrcsand the lailroad. During &n excur
sion to Northern Indiana a few days ago, we learned
that since the track? of the railroads around the lakes
' were laid uwn but one single wolf has been een or
heard of south of them, and it is thought that he had
never been north since their construction. The far
mers of Twentv mile Prairie aud adjaeentcountry are
no longer troubled about herding their sheep in pens
during each night as they were formerly. The wolf
is at all times exceedingly suspicious of traps, and
is uot disposed to venture near iron or steel, however
tempting the bait may bo that lies near it; hence
their fear of crossing the railroad tract to commit
-d-predation on tbe flocks in the farming country
south At night too when they leave their dens, the
locomotives pass, and their hideous and strange noise
i not calculated to inspiro the varmints jwith any re
markable degree of confidence and security from dancer-
The Republican give us a list of Gei. Scott's
quarrels commencing: ''He quarrelled with
the brave en. Jessup," and ending "He quar
relled with Col. Duncan." The Republican's
list, besides beinjf wronr in several particulars,
is incomplete. It omits altogether to state, that
he has adopted all the quarrels of his country,
for the last forty years that he quarrelled wita
the British and" threshed them that he quarrel
led with tho Indians and made them behave
themselves that he quarrelled with the Mexi

tract from a volume bearing the above title by
the brothers Mayhew:
"Before man was created, and when the heav

God made the metals And he locked them up
in coffers of stone, and setting huge rocks upon
them, buried them deep under the ground.
"First, He made yellow gold, gorgeous as the

"Next, the Copper was formed red as the
morning. And once more the Angels cried,
'Heaven and Earth are full of the majesty of

But the Angels grieved at the sight, and were

them uot! For, though Thou lockest them in
coffers of stone, and hidest them in the bowels
of the earth, Man will find them outamiu.se

Angels will have no resting p!ace on earth.
"But the A.igel of wisdom rose up aud cried,
Make them, O Lord! make them! for man, after
a time surfeited with slaughter, shall, with the
iron set a girdle round about the earth, that will

tribe with tribe, and nation with nation, till the
whole human race shall be linked together by
it into one family. And the lead he shall cast
into tiny tong-ues, therewith the best and wisest
of mankind shall pcak with their distant ureth

heard by it far beyond the cannon's roar, shall
tell the whole world of the wonderous beauty and

JCQ The Cincinnati Gazette forcibly remarks:
"Gen. "Winfield Scott was commissioned a
captain of light artillery in May,' 1803, and has
therefore hem forty-three years ia the service of
the United States; and daring that time he has
been successful in everything he undertook, has
failed in no duty, excused himself from no ser
vice, been present on the most memorable fields
of battle and party to some of the most impor
tant fields of battle, and party to some of the
most important civil as well as military transac
tions. In that time he has every where, and in
every place, been obedient to the civil law; been
observant of all the duties of humanity; been
true to every obligation of a citizen and a man;
been the frieud of peace rather than of wS
and on three remarkable occasions aided in pre
serving tho peace and tranquility of the country.
The recent elections in Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana, hiive resulted in favor of the
Democrats but by greatly reduced majorities,
as we understand.
The Pbess. Mr. Winthrop, in his late ora
tion before the Alumni of Harvard College,
thus comments on the Press of America.
"And then, the Press of America the peri
odical press, the pamphlet press, the literature
press, and above all, the newspaper press of
America that tremendous enginery which
throws a fresh broadside at morning and evening
and noonday beneath almost every roof in the
Republic, and whose competitions so often b(s
tray it into fatal compliances with the prejudic
es, the passions, and even the profligacies of its
supporters. Who can estimate the influence of
such an enginery upon our social and moral con
dition? Who can calculate the pernicious ef
fect, upon the community of a single corrupt,
licentious Newspaper, coining slanders like a
miut, changing phases like the moon, "with 3G5
opin'ons iu a year," upon every subject it treats,
spicing its daily and nightly potions with every
variety of obscene and sensual stimulant, con
trolled by no sense of responsibility, finding its
easy way to the knowledge and perusal of the
young, the ignorant and the inexperienced, and
ministering and pandering to their diseased ap
petites! And who can calculate ou the other
hand, the influence which might be produced
nay, let me say, which is produced for I have
in "my mind, I thank heaven, more than one ex
ample, by such an engine in the hands of up
right, intellgent, independent and conscientious
men; espousing and advocating neither ultra
isms, a wild fanaticism nor a bigoted conserva
tion, with the love of truth in their hearts, and
by whom the advancement ' of knowledge, of
morality, of virtue, ol right and righteousness,
is not held subordinate to the popularity of th
hour or the state of the subscription list.
The present accomplished and eloquent Prim
Minister to England, who has been personally
known and esteemed by so many of us in this
country as well as in his own, has recently de
clared somewhat emphatically on the floor of
Parliament, that, "as in these davs in the En
glish press aspires to the share the influence of
statesmen, so also it must share the responsibil
ities of statesmen." It would be more true in
this country, I fear, to speak of statesmen aspir
ing to share the influence of (he press. But,
however it may be as to the point of relative as
piration, there can be but little doubt a to that
of comparative responsibility. Certainly, if res
ponsibility is to be measured bv power, the res
ponsibility of the press is greater than that of
any statesman under the suu, however exalted
he may be. Who has forgotten that splendid
exclamation of another great English Minister
and Orator, in 1810, when he challenged and
defied all the authoritiis of the realm to contend
against the power of the press? "Give them,"
said he, "a corrupt House of Lords; give them
a venial House of Commons; give them a tyran
ical Prince; give them a truckling Court, and
let me but hare an unfettered Press, I will defy
them to encroach a hair's breadth upon the lib
erties of England."
Yes, an unfettered press is a match and an
overmatch for almost anything human, neither
tyranny nor freedom can stand against it. Nei
ther corruption nor virtue' ean survive its perse
vering assaults. It may be rendered all but om
nipotent for goo.-l; according to the ends to
which it is directed and the influences by which
it 13 controlled. And the only reliable, earthly
influence to which we can look for safety, is a
sense of responsibility, moral and religious res
ponsibility, on the part of its controllers." $

We extract from the annual commercial review of
the Cincinnati Vice Current, the following remarks
rolative to Hogs, as applicable to the coining fall:
"With regard to the crop of Hogs we cannot speak
with as much certainty as of the supply of Graius.
But from all the information in our possession, and
we have endeavored to inform ourself pretty fully,
wc have arrived at the conclusion that there will be
au increase in number and weight, as compared with
last season, that will in products- be e uial to fifteen
or twenty-five per cent of last year's crop.
Early in the Summer contracts were made for Hogs
as low as $4 75, but very little was done below $o 00,
and, two or three weeks since, when it was expected
there would be a very short crop of Com, some con
tracts were made as high as $5 00, and considerable
was done at $5 25. At this time, however, the feel
ing is decidedly less favorable to sellers, and it would
be difficult to efTect sales at over $5 00, although at
this price there are not many persons willing to"sell.
From the condition of the market, and all attending
circumstances, it is evident that prices will open at or
over 5 00 per 200 lbs. net, and unless tho crop should
prove much larger than is anticipated, the business
Will justify the figure we have named. As we have
already stated, the stocks of Hog products have been
for several years steadily diminishing, and this sea
son there will be very litlk oldstu'ti iu ny of the
markets of the country, when the new product begins
to go forward. ..
The market for Bef Cattle will be influenced by
the price of hogs, and it is evident that very full rates
will bo realized from the commencement of the
sesuon." v ,
The Reviewer gives some interesting statistics iu
relation to the llailirnyn connected with Cincinnati.
This thriving city is how the center of an immense
railway connection; and, like Boston, she is ,apidlv
fueling the good effects of it, by an immense increase
in the value of her taxable, property, the augmentation
n- commerce, and thenrosnenty of her nmnufiu-.
5 interests. . St. Louis must follow the exaimde
T.;ie cities we have named and, like them, the
benefits will be apparant.
Tbe stock of the "Little Miami Railroad." s.-svs
the rev iewer, is now worth $54 per share, for $50
paid. It seems that so little conCd.:uce was. placed ia
ritihvad enterprise, when this road was first project,
cd,,t!iat parties who had subscribed for' the stock
offered to sell out for $12.50, for $50 paid and, in
one instance, it was not aetuly sold for $7 jer 'share.
Now itpaj-s a dividend of 10 per cent, and the
stock is sought for with avidity at $54.
In relation to the Ohio and Mississippi railroad,
the reviewer says:
"The Ohio and Mississippi Railroad is making sat
isfactory progress, and since our last report bus been,
placed under contract for its entire length, 335 miles.
Messrs. H C. Seymour !!: Co., the contractors for the
road, have sublet that portion of the line extending
from this city to its intersection with the Jeffersou
ville Railroad in Indiania, and also the Western Di
vision extending through the State of Illinois from
Vincennes to the Mississippi river opposite St. Louis.
Engineering parties in largo force are preparing the
remainder of the line, (about 120 miles) which will,
doubtless, be sublet in a few weeks. Already the
laborers ore at work at various points in the three
States, aud additional jading forces are daily being
added to these already on the ground. New vijfiwr has
been imparted to the enterprise, and w ith the present
prospect it is confidently anticipated that cars will be
running in connection with the Madison an I Indian
apolis railroad in twelve months, aud the entire dis
tance between this city and St. Lonis within 3 years.
"Tin survey, as made, estahlish the important fact
that this route is nearer to an air line than that of any
other in the United States. The intersecting Hues in
Indiana and Illinois, which are built, or will bo fin
ished within three years, area valuable feature iu the
future productivness of this road, and I ho completion
of the routes East from this city will offer a choice of
roads to the traveler, or shipper, of great value. The
road will, when completed, gives coiitinuous line of
mils from St. Louis to Baltimore, aud thi latter road

' Having tested the .Suutheru market for otic
yetr, wo are prepared to make some Suggestions t
the growers of produce which, if improved, may
enable farmers and shippers to obtain better prices j
for the products. j
Heretofore the mile manuer-of putting up produce
for market aud then the want of speedy conveyance
to market, have operated much against the interest
cf shippers. But as the railroad have penetrated
further iato the heart of tho produce section; and as
these roads are more extensively equipped, the strong
probability is, that henceforth there will be deten
tion or diliieulty iu reaching market, at any reason of j
Middle and Southern Georgia, will always, more !
or less, need the products of Tennessee, Mid afford ti
pay prices for them, that will handsomely renuuiera
ate ! tie growers for iheir trouble in producing and
preparing these products fur market. But to realise
tliet e far prices, two things are necessary to be done
fuvt ou the part of (he farmer:
1st. The article itself must be of the best (quality.
2d. The' article, whatever it may be, iiiu: t be pur
up in thtVtry best manner, in order to be presented
fjr side in market, in good conditio:!. y
Supposing that every farmer or shipper will select,
onlv tho best Articles, we offer some diicjtinus as to
i pro paring Jthcin for safe tranicrtatiou; andjircserv-
lug tuem in gooa oruer.
A few of the leading articles may surace.

drive all Northern flour from the Georgia markets,
and thereby Tennessee would receive the "ten thou

markets for the rffegle article of flour Buck wheat

Corx Meal. Let'it be ground of strictly whito
flint corn previously fanned and freo from silks and
husks and bolted and sacked in two bushel sacks,
whilo cool. Meal' intended for shipping to foreign
ports, should bo kiln-dried and packed in barrels.
Ar.d this would pay well if properly undertaken.
Fkauiers. Good assorted Geese Feathers are in
demand during the fall, winter and spring.
Hay. If Fanners would got a Hay Press and pack
their hay somewhat after tho manner of a cotton bale,
their meadows would yield them a rich return, for
labor bestowed. Instead of getting 30 cts to 40 cK
for hay, they might get CO to 70'ct. per 100 lbs., af
ter paying all expenses of transportation, commis
sions for selling, Ac. .
This fall and winter will be a favorable time to
commenc3, as tho supplies from the North wDl be
small and prices consequently rule high as the crops
are short" on account of drought during the early
part of summer. This step is insisted on, because
if the Tennessee Timothy and Clover hay once find
its way into the Southern market its superior qual
ity will keep np the demand, ana be a continual
source of revenue to the farmer.
Ukaix. Wheat, Rye, Oats and Barley f superior
quality, will, every year, find a market iu the South,
and should be sent in two bushel sacks, the latter
part of the summer or first of the falL
Cons. Corn should be well dried on the ear, and
the white separated from the yellow before shelling.
When shelled, the silks, husks, nubs of cobs, and
trash of all kinds, should be sepparated by fanning
in the same manner as wheat ia cleaned; and sent to
market in two bushel sacks. Be certain to keep the
com from getting damp after it is put np for market
White flint corn is generally preferred in the south
ern market, though yellow corn is worth more for
The consumption of Indian corn being greatly on
the increase in Europe, hereafter Tennessee corn will
find a market in Liverpool and in Germany. This
coming winter and spring it will be shipped hence,
so let it be of the best quality, well assorted, that it
may gain a good reputation there on first triaL The
most expeditious channel to the seabord is by the
way of Savannnh, -.which offers a fine wholesale mar
ket, besides many advantages in shipping, as it re
gards safety, dispatch, cheapness of freight, insur
Marks. Let every package be shipped wiih the
mark of a single letter, and let the shipping receipt
be sent to the consignee, as soon as the produce is
l-'iiiciGHT. The charges that may occur in the rates
of freight, on t!i different Railroads, from time to
time, as necessity may require, will doubtless result
as a general thing, ia favor of shippers, and conse
quently baiter will be the markets for Tennessee pro
duce iu the future.
Thanking our frieuds for their liberal patronage
during our fir.-t year's labors in the South, we are
determined to renew our zeal and attention to busi
ness, in order to give special satisfaction to ever'
Tennesseau w h may patronise us.
If we have failed iu any instance to give satisfac
tion, it has not been for want of an honest effort to do
the very best that could be done under the circum
stances. As Tenuessear.s, we feci bound to gnard well, every
interest that may be entrusted to our care.

I WISH to employ a number of agents to sell J. S.
Bonham's "Improved Garment Cutter" ia all tho
States except Georgia and N. Carolina, and I am of
fering great inducements both by the sale of the
copy-right of counties and States, and by agency.
The simplicity of the system is such that it can be
learned in a time surprisingly short; 12 scholars may
be learned in 4 days. I furnish each learner with a
complete set of Patterns and book of directions for
cutting Coats, Pants, and Vests of the different styles
and sizes. Persons can get the use of these patterns
from the book of directions, without oral instructions
by a few days application. I could refer to several
who have sent for them by mail, and are now
cutting garments snecefUy. This system is now
being taught - iu this State, Kentucky, Alabama,
Georgia, and North Carolina, and is gaining a popu
larity not equaled by any other system in use. The
ladies (for whose benefit this rule 13 published,) have
given it a liberal patronage. Feeling thankful for
past favors we would respectfully solicit a more ex
Hear from those who have learned my system of
GEORGIA: Walker county, July. 1852.
We, the learners and patrons of J. S. Bonham's
Improved Garment Cutter, do hereby certify, that
from our own knowledge and the information obtain
ed from others who have tested the system, that for
correctness, simplicity and convenience, we believe
it is not equaled by any other system extant but is
decidedly superior to any other with which we have
become acquainted; ami as a safe Garment Cutter in
the bauds 4f the judicious learner or practical Gar
ment Cutter, we recomend this system as worthy tho
patronage of an intelligent and an improvement go
ing community. Iu witness whereof are our names
