BATON ROUGE.;::::::::::::SEPT. 24, 1852. [C7"For several evenings past, we have observed on the road to the Catholic Ceme tery. a negro man with a basket of dowers. Wondering why he should take them from town, we ventured yesterday to ask the question. They were to strew upon the tomb of a lovely daughter, that a tew short months ago drooped her head, and now lies mouldering in the dust. What touching |ioctry and pathos is this—what Heavenly devotion ! Could there be any better offer ing at the holy shrine, of one so pure as ihe, than "fresh morning flowers 1 '—flowers that are ever pure, and sweet with the frag, ranee of spring time ? Holy indeed is the feeling that prompts such attention—what melancholy sweetness in its exercise ! The love of the mother who manifests lier affection in this mahner. must be fully imbuejkwith the truth '":hat the flower la re iM^rnt the shadowy type of the flower heicafter."' The Mails .—What has got into the mails' ( »ur friends at Greensburg bitterly comj&jn of them. We are informed that no rratirpaper» had been received there from as Var as Baton ltouge for five or six weeks, while Whig paper s come every mail. Our citizens here are complaining loudly about not receiving their Democratic papers. And we too find it difficult to get our paper to our subscribers under three or four weeks Where is the fa-ilt 1 Let it be corrected. The foregoing is from that able campaign paper, published at Clinton La , and called the Campaign Floridian. It is a very ap propriate thing for a Campaign paper, and we hope other Campaign papers, through out the State, will copy it and make the jiost that can be, out of it. The idea (and we believe it was first jooted in this city) that the Post master at this place, sends all the Whig documents to Greensburg, and keeps back the Dem ocratic. This is quite probable. If peo ple do not receive their valuable Demo cratic papers regularly, It is beca use the mails arc overburdened with trash tracts, issued by Whig executive committees and Democrat caucuses. The mail frorri this place to Greensburg is carried in saddlebags on horse, and though they be large saddle bag* yet it is found from actual measur ement, that they will not contain more than two millions ot Campaign papers 'ike the Floridian at one time. The Presidential Election .—The law of Congress passed in 1845, for establishing a uniform time for the holding of the elec tion for President and Vice President enacts that they shall be held "on Tuesday next after the first Monday in November," in the year in which presidential electors arc by law to be appointed. The first day of November in this year being on Monday, the Presidential election will be held on the Tuesday following, No vember 2d. The Model Club Speaker The modal clnb speaker, is a man of vast researc h —profound knowledge. He k nows what Mr. Johnson said in 1818 about the compromise, and what Mr. Gibbons did in convention. Not only these things does he know, but he is posted as to the proceedings of the secret sessions of the executive vigi lence committee. The model club speak er very judiciously lets out the light of his intelligence gradually that the populace be not blinded with its brilliancy. There are - certain things necessary to be kept back, and these he guards with a roguish cunning which is very commendable. The Model Club speaker is never at hand, when called on by the '■'voire of the people''' to speak, if he does happen to be in the room, he looks daggers at the callers, and crouches behind some fat man in order to hide himself. The Model Clnb orator never rises at the first call—but partly gets up at the second, and at the third he stands erect with his hands in his pockets, and gazes with a look of patronizing condescention When he goes Tip to the stand, he invariable puts his hand on his heart—appologise.s for Kein« -inpre prepaircd and commences Court Rome Meeting ''According to previous notice" the Demo crats assembled at the Court House; G. W. Christinen the chair. The Democrats met to hear Mr. Davidson's explanation.— Mr. Davidson said : "It Was true that he had said certain unpalitable things about Native Americanism—that he had been decoyed by the Whigs, and it was astonish ing that they should now turn against him. He said he would like to see the names of the gentlemen in whose company he then was, published. He defied the party to publish them. Mr. Davidson also said that his party should not be blamed for the ex pression of his sentiments—that he recan ted his Native American acts, and he likes to hear candidates speak out boldly when they think proper to recant from errors, (cheers.) Mr. McHatton was called for and said he would not make a speech—that it was well known that the Democratic party had al ways been the friend of the down-troden and oppressed of all nations—that he looked upon every naturalized citizen as an equal participant, in the blessings of Republican ism, whether they come from the Emerald Isle of Eren, or Hungary ! (cheers) Judge Burk was called on, said that "his feelings upon the subject of Native Ameri' canism were well known ta be inimical to every proposition from the party—that he liked to hear candidates confess the error of their first impressions before the people —that he should vote for Davidson." (cheers Mr. D. Stuart was called for but did not answer, ami somebody mooved to adjourn, when Hon. J. IV Chapman rose and said he hoped that every true democrat would be on hand to raise the pole '"to morrow front of Phillip Burg's coffee-house—that he hoped after that pole was raised that they would then go and help rai.-e a pole at the junction of the Comité and Amite, and Manchac and the Jones creek load; that he would liie to see a pole at that place as a 'beacon light' to the inhabitants of the Sevcnt and Ninth Waids —before th? lull length, strength, and beauty of the principal Pierce and King pole in front of Philip Burg's should stri&e upon their admiring vision. W hat is L ife ?—The following beautiful description, in answer to this question, is from Rev. Mr. Mouutford's Euthanasy : "The present life is sleeping and waking ; it is 'Good night' on going to bed, and 'Good Morning' on getting up : it is to wender what the day will bring forth : it is sunshine and gloomi ness ; it is rain on the window, as one sits by the fire ; it is to walk in the jarden, and see the flowers open and bear the birds sing ; it is to have the postman bring letters ; it is to have news East, West, North, South ; it is to read old books and new books ; it is to see pictures and hear music ; it is to have Sundays ; it is to pray with a family morning and evening ; it is to sit in the twiltght and meditate ; it is to be well, and somctimesto be ill ; it is to have business to do, and do it ; it is to have break-fast and dinner and tea ; it is to belong to a town, and to have neighbors, and to be one in a cir cle acquaintances ; it is to have friends to love one : it is to have sight of dear old faces ; and, with some men, it is to be kissed daily by the same loving lips for fifty years ; and it is to know them selves thought of many times a day, in many places, by children and grand children, and many friends." If this it life, we fear that the great mass do not live. And if to these in gredients of life be added the higher joys and longing of the spirit, how few truly live ! Q5?=- There was a good deal of puffing and blowing before "Fillip's' yesterday morning, and mahy men and boys in shirt sieves running to and fro, and ordering others, but doing little them selves. We observe that, as usual on such occasions, if a man wanted any thing done, he was very apt to have to do it himself. At length the pole wont up, he men and boys went away— in different directions—the most of them wo learn went into Phillip's to ool off and refresh 1 Miss Julia Dean .-—This young beautiful and talented actress—"The Star of the West," the New York Mirror calls her—tea lately closed a brilliant engagement at the Broadway Theatre New York as we have before stated. She created quite a "sensation in Gotham. The Evening Mirror of the 5th thus notices her closing performances at the Broadway. "Miss Julia Dean's performance of the part of "Parthenia in the sterling tragedy of Ingoma i*t the Broadway theatre on Sotueday evening was one of the finest pieces of acting we have ever witnessed. We write the words deliberately and sincerely and do not hesitate to add that Miss Dean has no equal as a tragedienne upon the American stage. In figure face and voice she is almost faultless while her gestures movements and attitudes are dignified graceful and picturesque.— But what is still better every look and tone indicates a high susceptibility of poetic beauty and a complete identifi cation of the actress with the part as sumed. She dresses too both her hair and her person "like a picture f ' and as the dutiful and devoted Greek girl devoted equally to her father her lover her country and her God, she was all that eye and ear and heart could wish. In the representation of the 'horible terible,' Mi.-â Dean, of course, could not approach Miss Cushman's mon strous personation of 'Meg Merriles' ; and in certain hyacinthine parts, in which like Juliet's, the soul exhales in sweet excess, Mrs. Mowatt's tones maj be more tender and touching than Miss Dean's, But in all the essen tial elements of a great actress ; in the union of strength and gentleness ; passionate impulse and girlish simplici ty ; in ezae—naturaluess,—archness, and the tout ensemble that constitute« what the critics term effectiveness, Miss Dean outranks all her American competitors and even in London not withstanding the fiasco of Buchanan our Star of the West, would suffer no eclipse from metropolitan favorites. The Evening Post of the same date remarks : This accomplished and splendid ac tress has made more improvement in her art of late years than any of our performers of either sex and promises to take rank among the best artists of her profession. Her early faults which were those of excess and not of defi ciency have been pruned away and she is now a most pleasing and graceful as well as energetic performer. Her late engagement at the Broadway Theatre has filled the house every night and has established for her an excellent rep utation."
