WORLD WOULD BB THE BET
tPOR IT.-BY r 1 - co3.
If m eared lem oe wealth and fIne,
And lee lbr battle aelds and glory;
If writ in human hearts a name
eemed better than In ong or tory:
If men, nstead of nursing pride,
Would learn to hate it and abhor it
If maore nlied
On love to gnide,
Thn world would be the Ab for it.
If men dMalt l ain stocks and lads,
And more In bonds and deeds fraternal;
If Love's work had more willing hands
To Ifak this world to the supernal;
If men stined up Love's oil and wine,
And em bruised human heart would poor it
If "youa" and "mine"
Would onoe combine,
The worl6 would be the better fbr it.
If more woul' ast the play of Lifer
And fewer spell It in rehearsual
If Bigotry would sheathe its knife,
'Til Good beeome more unlversal;
If Custom, ray with ages grown,
Had fewer blind men to adore it
If tlent thoe
In Truth alone,
The world wohld be the better for it.
If men were wise in little things
Affeeting hes than a1l their dealings
If hearts had fewer rusted strings
To isolate their klndly feelings:
If men, when Wrong beats dowa the Right.
Would strive togsqJer and restore It
If Right made Might
In every fght,
The world would be the better for it.
G.,NERAL JACKSON'8 "ENDoansx iTr.
The following incident, which has been sent
as by a correspondent in Albany, in this
State, for insertion, dad preservation in the
"Drawer," we are ormed may be relied
upon as perlfibsy e. The incident. it
may be added: e in the year 1884,
twenty years ago, and was known to many
of Gen. Jackson's friends at the time:
A widow lady, in rather straightened cir
cumstances, had been keeping a boarding
house in Washington City; and during the
geieral prostration ofactive business, grow
ing out of the.currency arrangements of that
date, had become in arrears; and that she
might be enabled to pay some of her most
urgent debts, sent such of her furniture as
she could possibly spare to auction.
The purchaser was a clerk in one of the
Governmentoffices; one of those public loa
fers, of which there have always been too
many in Washington and elsewhere, who
run in debt as far as they can obtain cred-'
it, and without ever intending to pay. The
lady called on the auctioneer, the auctioneer
called on the official, who proposed to pay
as soon as his month's salary was due.
The month rolled round, and June suc
ceeded March, and September June, with
out payment being made, to the great dis
tress of the widow and uheasiness of the
auctioneer. After further application, the
office-holder refused absolutely to do any
thing, allegal that it was wholly out of his
power to pay. The sum was too large for
the auctioneer to pay out of his own pocket
or he would have paid it himself, so deeply
did he feel for the poor creditor.
In this perplexity he concluded to call
upon the President, and state the case hop
ing that he might suggest some mode of
relief. He waited, therefore, upon Gen.
Jackson with his narrative.
When he heard the story, the old man's
eyes fairly flashed fire.
"Have you got Mr. P'-'s note?" asked
" No," was the replys
" Call on him at once, then, and without
speaking of the purpose for which you want
it, get his negotiable note and bring it
The auctioneer accordingly asked P-for
"What do you want with the note?" ask
ed the office-holding' loafer;'" I don't knowv
of anybody who would take it-" but sitting
down and writing it, he added:
"There it is-such as it is."
"The auctioneer promply returned to
the President and handed him the note.
He sat down, without saying a word, and
wrote on the back of the paper:
"Now, sir," said the General, "show Mr
P-the endorsement, and if hlie does not pay
it, just let me know it."
The first man the auctioneer met as he
entered Gadsebr hotel was Mr P-.
" Al I how d'ye do, "said he, "have you
passed the note ?"
" Not yet," said the other," but I expect
to, without much trouble, for I have got a
responsible endorser upon it "
Nonsensel" said P-, " who is it?"
"The endorsement was shown him. He
turned pale, then red; then begged the auc
tioneer to wait for a few minutes-then went
out, and in avery short space of time return.
ed with the money, which was at once paid
over to the widow, to the gratification of
It would not have been very strange if
this story should have transpired at once;
nor would it have been very wrong if the

fbr ears bt nfinallly, on a remark being
made in his presence that Gen. Jackson
never endorsed for anybody whatever, re
marked what be himself new better, for the
General had once endorsed for him; and
he produced s evidence the very note, to
the great surprise of all who were not ac
qualnted with the circumstances of the case.
As party bitterness has died away, " end
in view, lastly, of this subject," let us take
up the old slogan:
"Hurrah for Jackson I"
RANDOLPH vi VIWO THE BIrIL.,--The
Hon. Thoma H. Benton, in his reminis
coences of public men, has the following
statement in relation to Mr. Randolph, and
his religious views and feelings in his latter
had religious Impressions, and a vein
of piety whic showed itself more in pri
vatethn in xternal observancy. He was
habitual in his reverential regard for the
divinity of our religion; and one of his beau.
tiful expressions was. that "if woman had
lost us paradise, she had gained us heaven.'
The Bible and Shakspeare were, to the last,
his constant companions, travelling with him
on the road, rqming with him in the cham
ber. The last time I saw him (in that last
visit to W sldlngton, after his return from
the Russian mission, and when he was in
the full view of death) I heard him read
the chapter in the Revelation ,of the open
ing of the scale, with such power and
beauty of voice and delivery, add such depth
of pathos, that I felt as if I had never
heard the chapter read before! When he
had got to th# end of the opening of the
sixth seal, he stopped the reatng, laid the
book open at the place, on kis breast, as
he lay on his bed, and began' a discourse
upon the beauty and sublimitfof the scrip
tural writings compared to Which he coun
sidered all human compositlibs vain and
empty. Going over the images presented
by the opening of the seals, he averred
that their divinity was in their sublimity
that no human power could take the same
images and inspire the same awe and ter
ror, and sink ?urselves into lch nothing
ness in the piesence of the rath of the
Lamb"-that he wanted no proof of their
divine origin but the sublimeoeelings which
A HUNGRY CARPET BAO.--The Buffalo
Express relates an amusing incident which
occured at Erie a few days since. A gen
tleman left Cleveland for New York at
au early hour in the morning, without his
breakfast, and being very hungry, upon the
arrival of the train at Erie, entered the
dining room, and placing his carpet bag
upon a chair, 4atdown beside it, and com
menced a valorous attack upon the viands
placed before him. By and by the propri
etor of the establishment came around to
collect fares, nd upon reaching our friend,
ejaculated, " ollar, sir I"
" A dollar I' responded the eating man,
"A dollar-thought you only charged fifty
cents a meal for one-ch ?"
"That's tr e," said .Meanness," but I
count your carlpet bag one, since it occupies
a seat." The table was far from being
Our friend expostulated, but thie land
lord insisted, and the dollar, was reluctant
ly brought forth. The landlord passed on.
Our friend deliberately arose and opening
his carpet bag, full in its wide mouth, dis
coursed unto it, saying," Carpet bag, it
seems you're an individual-a human indi
vidual, since you eat-at least I've paid for
you and now you must eat"-upon which,
lie seized evecy thing eatable within his
reach, nuts, raisins, apples, cakes, pies and
amid the roarm of the bystanders, the delight
of his brother passengers, and discomfiiture
of the landlord, phlegmatically went and
took,his seat in the cars. Hie said he had
provision enough to last him to New York,
after a bountiful supply had been served
out in the cars. There was at least $8
worth in the bag-upon which the landlord
realized nothing in the way of profit. So
much for meanness.
SOME OF THE SAINTS.-The Louisville
Courier of the 3d has the following:

SOUTHERN QUARTERLY REVIEW.
HE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION was
I adopted by the Southern Commer ial Con
vention, held in Charleston, in April, 1854.
Reisý,lvl:xn, That the Southern Quarterly Re.
view, published in the City of Charleston, by I
a native of Virginia, and edited by one of
the most distinguished literary gentleman of
the South, being the only Periodical of that
character, printed and published in the Sou
thern States, and having always defended the
institutions and interests of the South, is enu
titled to the patronage of the Southern peo
pie, and this Convention earnestly recom
mend it to their favorable consideration.
This Periodical is the only one of its class in
the entire region of the South; and its pages
are referred to as the best evidence of the abil
ity of the South, and its capacity to give ex
pression to the feelings, the interests and intel
ligence of this section of our country. Its
purpose is to fairly represent ourselves, and not
to misrepresent others. It aims to maintain
the truth as we understand it, and to assert
the intellectual equality of our section, while
at the same time it will free the mind of our
people from that literary thraldrom and de
pendence under which they have too long la
bored. We claim then, from all lovers of the
South, and friends of a truly home literature,
that support of our work which will enable us
to give it a free course, and thus make it emi
nently worthy of the world's admiration and
our own pride. C. MORTIMER, Publisher.
