Once, when my scanty meal was spread He entered not a word he spake ; Just peiishing for want of bread, 1 gave hiu. all; he bles.-ed it, brake, Am! ate, but gave me part again ; Mine wa- an Angel's portion then, For, while 1 fed with eager haste, The crust was manna to my taste. 1 - pied him, where a fountain htir-t Clear Iroin the rock ; tii- strength was gone; The heedless water mocked his thirst ; He heard it, saw it hurrying on. 1 lalito rai>e the sufferer up; Thrice from the stream he drained my cup, Ihpt, ai d returned it i umiing o'er ; I drank, and never thirsted more.

THE BEDFORIfiIzETfE. Reel lord, Ait£. <*3, 1 Hear au Old Line Whig Paper. Tumbling tii Piccfs. Tlie Know-Nothing Pattv, says the North j American, is in a curiously split up condition, tu consequence of the proceedings of the last National Convention. The Louisiana branch ! ot the older has disavowed all connection with th-- National Council and repudiated the Cath- ! olic plank of its platform. The State Councils ot Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, R. Island, Pennsylvania and Illinois, have rejected the na tional platform, and most ot thein have made creeds of their own, differing .ssenlitdlv lrom the general one, not onlv in reference to slavery birt to other questions. In New England and the West the seceders have liberalized their principles so as to include many classes of na turalized citizens. In some cases also the o|>- position to Catholics has been softened down to an opposition against ail ecclesiastical despotism. In \ennont the organization lias been thrown open, assumed the name of the American party, anil declared against the extension of slavery. — There are scarcely two of these northern plat forms alike. In New Jirsey no Slate action has yet been had, but ail the councils ol Tren '■n and Newark have rejected the National creed, and declared in favor of the restoration of 'he .Missouri compromise. In Pennsylvania, a portion ol the Councils, attached to the national platform, have bolted since the action at R> ad " and organized a new State body, which, by 1 •' way, has a majority in the Executive Coun cil of the partv in Philadelphia. Two of the "'tellers were from Montgomery county, andol these one has since been repudiated by the ' uuricil here represented, that of the upper ard of Norristown, which, as the Herald tells "S has approved ot the State action, and de nounced the national platform. What is the '"tact condition of things in Philadelphia it is difficult to tell. K. X. WITHDRAWALS IX ALABAMA! In the town of Centre Star, Lauderdale coun ■>' Alabama, there is, or rather there was, a know-nothing lodge which numbered about one hundred and twenty-five members. A very forge majority of the lodge soon became thor ''Uglily disgusted with know-nothingism* its lea ders, doctrines, and practices, which disgust resulted in their quietly withdrawing from the order. Ih e North Alabamian, a leading know nothing organ, accounts for this wholesale stam pede alter this fashion : 'lhe anti-American papers hereabouts are I making a great 'miration' over the know-noth ing explosion, of Centre Star council, in Lau derdale county, Alabama. The facts of t h e case are simply these, as we are informed : The council numbered about 125 members, among whom were a number of hard cases, which the more respectable portion of the council wished to get rid of, and as the easiest way to accom plish that, without wounding their feelings and . creating excitement, they concluded to disband, which they did." The withdrawing members, numbering eigh ty persons, with the view nt letting the public know who the "hard cases" w-re whom the minority succeeded in getting rid of, have pub lished a card, in which their reasons are given in detail tor their withdrawal from the lodge. The "hard cases" prove to he some of the most respectable citizens in northern Alabama, as the ; following list of their names satisfactorily de j monstrates : IX F. Harrison, Jamps IT.

'-fointon A ! - We suspect tliat before the election takes place in Alabama a very large addition w ill be ( made to the above list of "hard cases." In Choctaw county, Mississippi, Mr. 11. C. 1 Avant has set a noble example. He was indu ced to join the order and they tendered him the ■ nomination for the otlice ot sheriff. But dis— : covering the character of the organization, he abandoned it and declined to run for the lucra tive office for which he was nominated. In the Mississippian we find the following card, signed by foi tv-one voters ol Yazoo county, sewn of j whom are whigx : i To THE Prune.—Being convinced from our connexion with what is commonly called the j know-nothing partv, that we have been deluded as to its aimsaod purposes, we therefore publish to the world, and particularly to the so-called know-nothing party, that we are no longer . members of that organization. As to the secrets and obligations connected with the order, we shall hold them inviolate, and in dissolving our : connexion with it, we do so with a conscien tious belief that the operations of the order are i dangerous to the practical workings of this re j publican government —dangerous to the liber- Mies of the people—and that they trammel the free exercise of the elective franchise.

" BEN J. MY RICK, Jr. THOMAS C WHITLOCK. i The Mississippian of the 3d instant publishes a number of withdrawals from Ihe oath-hound know-nothings in the counties of Yazoo, Choc taw, and Attala. The People's Press (published in De Solo county, Mississippi) savs that "on the 2Sth ultimo a large number of democrats who had attached themselves to the know-nothing order assembled at the Hernando Hotel to deliberate i upon the most efficacious plan ol declaring thei.- independence from the yoke of political bond age they had, in an unsuspecting moment, fas- ' j fened upon llieir democratic principles." W• ' I understand (says the Press) that their council i was characterized with rnanv resolves, and a! | united save one in absolving themselves forevei from tlie shrine of intolerance. When this , news reached the main body of the democratic aimv, a company was detached to receive them with the democratic flag flying, the presenta tion of arms, and the tile and drum playing j "Hail Columbia."

And Still they Come! Bfjfow we publish the withdrawal of Elliot Patfwson Esq., from the Know Nothing lodge at Qiavsville in this county. Mr. Patterson is wejl known to ben honest, u[iright and conscientious man : and no person acquainted with the goodness of his In-art and the purity of his notions, will for one moment doubt that anything save the Jesuitical duplicity ofthe dark lantern party, could have drawn him within the influence of its midnight ploltings. The order is too base to live long. Its system atic lying may now and then entrap a good man, but it is too vile to hold him, and sooner or later, like Mr. P., he will wash his hands of it. It will be opserved that the final induce ment held out to Mr. P., was thai if he became dissatisfied, he could withdraw ; and fuither, thai a certain prominent individual among them would secede with him. Now who is this prominent K. N 1 We presume nine-tenths of our reader# will understand " who he is with out much difficulty. And ns " prominence " a rnpngst the Thugs, comes of facility in lying, we presume lie merits his standing. Read the letter: To THE DEMOCRACY OF WA-UIINGTO.X CO. I have felt it due to tlie Democracy of Washington county, with whom J have long acted, to make a brief statement ofthe decep tions, corruptions, and false representations of the K. N. [ arty, in order to get members.— Two weeks ago, I was in the town of Clays ville: I was strongly and earnestly solicited bv certain prominent men, who have heretofore bet-n called Democrats, to join the order, telling me that il theie was anything that I did not like, I could come out at any time, and one of the persons above referred to who occupies at this time, a conspicuous place in that order, promis ed to come out with me. I was also promised tlie Commissioner's office next fall: these with man)' other inducements were held out to me; I consented, and was initiated by taking the oaths, and from the moment I joined I was dis satisfied. finding that there was nothing hut cor ruption in the order, and thai I would he bound to lie, prevaricate and make ail kinds ol misre presentations, and do things udilrh I /bought in consistent with, and contrary to genuine Chris tianity, and to remain in such an order, I found J must get iiiy conscience seared as it were with a hot iron, and banish the fear ol God from my eves. J accordingly resolved to come out from among the foul party, and went to mv K. N. Nfjiend, referred to, who wrrs to withdraw with et, and wished him to come dii('w\f}i"fofKj l ftiJi c ifr refused, stating that the position lie now occu pied prevented him, whereupon, J demanded and obtained my discharge. I would just say to all 11 1-° Dre not in the order, to beware and not let the false representations and inducements held out by said party lead you astray. I now lee| that J am a freeman, breathing pure air and r-ady and willing to act in concert with mvold Democratic friends, and for the good of the De inociatic party which 1 have been taught to re vere from my youth. I feel that theXshackles are off of n:v fe.-t, and I am determined, if spar ed to go In the election next fall, to vote the Democratic ticket, the whole ticket and nothing 1 lilt the ticket. " i ELLIOT PATTERSON. knoH-Xotliiug H ilhdraivals in Georgia. < A card appears in the Augusta Constitution alist, signed hy a number of respectable citizens ol Sparta, Georgia, in which their reasons ore given at length for their withdrawal from a know-ni>th:ng lodge. They say : '•U e deem it proper to state that on entering the order we were assured that whenever we night heroine dissatisfied with it we could withdraw in good faith, and without hindrance <r obstruction. \\ ithout this assurance men could never he induced to assume the obliga tions of the order. Tins free privilege of quit itig is universally used !>v know'-nothings as an answer to the charge that the order trammels the freedom of the elective franchise by .subject ing the individual judgment of its members to the will of the order. We, therefore, in with drawing, considered thai we were exercising a . ight which had been guaranteed to us from the beginning, and which could not justly expose lis to a charge of 'treason' or 'perjury.' It may fie true in theory that any member may quit xhen he pleases, but practically it is false when le can obtain his discharge only by passinc through the terrible ordeal of being denounced 5s a deserter, a 'traitor,'and 'perjured renegade,' Jnd as having signed 'the manifest of his own i fa my.' Such denunciations as illustrated in the news papers, and on the streets, and in the bye-ways and corners, are not so much intended to act up (l) those who have quit as they are meant to ploy upon I J ears of those who yet remain in. They are intended to throw an obstruction and hindrance and terror around the exercise of the rght to quit the right of exercising individual will and private judgment."
