He showed ns one of his ef fuaione the other day, and it wasn't lohg we read it It proved very plainly that Mr. Nonfit waaone of those poete who are nei ther born nor made. So we snid aoftly, "Why don't you write prose, Mr. Nonfat" Nonfit smiled, and answered like a maa who could afford to waive the honor "Never write prose have no taste for it poetry comes trraoh mors natural, and I alwaya write poe try. If any thing." "But 'morn' and dawu' are not rhymes, Mr. Nonfitr "Not they are allowable, aintthey?" anld the poet, sarprised at this unexpected criticism. "What would you do where the words won't rhyme exact ly!" "Leave 'em out," we suggested, "But ' how in thst ease wonld yon save the eou pletr eaid Nonfit. "Omit the couplet, and it's safe enough." "But that would sacrifice the thought!" said Nonfit, amazed. "So much the better," we answered, getting earneat aa the discnurse wcntoa "ao much the better thought yon can't express In good verse mare the poem, and( iwo or three murder !t -oategnt. Try pro awhile, Mr. Nonnt learn grammar 'lis useful even to a man of genius and a poet Tax yourself with syn tax, then go from prose to prosody; you have care enough, but cultivate your ear; and re j member that a poem made up of 'allowable' I fault is not allowable poetry."- Mr. Nonfit retired with a look of extreme disgust A Clirchrr. The Lynchburg Republi can, a real live Democratic paper says, "if the Administration does not remove Walker, the Svnnte wifl reject hia nomination, or prove faithless to the rights and honor of the 'South." " ' Upon 'which declaration, the Peteraburg Intelligencer makes the following comment, which is entirely unanswerable: " "Why does the Republican pronounce a sentence against the Senste that it will not pronounee againat the Administration! What greater culpability will there be in the Sen ate's allowing Walker to retain hie place, than there la in the Administration doing the same thing. If th Senate would prove it self "faithless to th right and honor of th South" by keeping him in office, doea not the administration prove iteelf "faithlea to th right and honor of the South" by keep ing him in office! If there be law or logio In th world this is so, but th Republican that denounces the Senate in advance forthepos. ible Infidelity to the South, eulogize the President, whose infidelity is estsblished." A Sion of the Tim. The Nw York Express says: A few dsy since, Miss J.

Important Railroad Suit. Virdict Srt Asidr. A ease of some Importance waa triie at Wheeling, last week, before Judge Thompson, In the Circuit Conrt of Virginia. It was that of a suit brought by Jamea O. Hawley, a brakeman on th Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, againat that Company for damagee for injuria received whilst doing duty upon th road, from an accident alleged to have been caused by the negligence of hie fellow employees. The caae waa ably contested on both sides, and elicited unusu al interest, on account of the principle invol ved. The Hon. Andrew Hunter, and Jamea S. Wheat Esq., appeared for the company, and the Hon. Mr. Ruaaell and other for the plaintiff. The jury, after bearing th evi. dence and argument, tendered a verdict awarding 95,000 damagee to the plaintiff. By a dispatch received yesterday, we 'learn that Judge Thompson ha set aside the ver dict of the jury, both upon the law and upon the testimony, and, in review of the case, haa granted a new trial. A BoT RlCOVRRKO FROM TBI IRDIARS. Mr. Wm. Dickson returned borne lo Knox county, Miaaourl, last week, from the Plains, where he had been on successful mission to recover hie eon, captured more than a -year ago by th Indiana.

He aueceeded in recovering him after conaiderable delay. He paid twelve horses for him. The boy hsd been fifteen months with the Indians, and had entirely forgotten his native (German) language."

THE UNION. - from Mis National lotslllfmesr. We look occasion some week ago to al lude in terms of remonstrance and dissent to the argument of auoh among our ao tempo raries as em disposed to press even the financial misfortunes of the country into the service of narrow aectionaliam. Many who at first profeeied to look with "greet com placency" upon the preeent derangement of our currency because, by Illustrating th com paraliv exemption of th South from It scope and preeeure, it would serve to chow her essential independence of the North, have perhaps before this found reaeon eome- what to modify their opinion and abate their ungenerous exultation. Other journal of th South, we are glad to perceive, with cogency of logle ss much aoperlot a th spirit which snimate them I more pstrtotie and catholic, ar rather 4mwing from th general prevalence of th ."nu:" 4caj4, illustration of th InBmate anion tnd mutual independence of the two aeotlons, which are proved by experience to be equally on in adversity and in prosperity. The political connection of the two ia thus shown to be the counterpart of their economical identifi cation in interest, at Indeed Natur herself haa plainly indicated by that very diversity of their productions which renders them mutual complements of each other. They therefore reason widely and sound ly who discern in the present derangemeHt-of our national finances a faint type of that all pervading and incurable calamity which would overtake the whole country in th event of a dissolution of our National Union, If th temporary and partial Interruption of the monetary exchanges and bualneaa com munications of different parts of th country hns wrought this wide-spread and disastrous depression in every department of trade and industrial activity, who can measure the ex tent or duration of that catastrophe in which not only our currency but our nnion and lib. erties would be engulphed! Happily the queatlon It on of speculation and not of practical moment. At the value of the Union ia not calculable in any array of figures snd statistics, founded as it is npon sentiments grander and nobler than any that "aophiatera snd economists" ever dreamed of, ao it must ever remain unnecessary to demonstrate the utility or point out the beneficence of that common bood of confederation which makes us one people one in political association as we already are on in all those element which compose the common grandeur and common destiny, of a nation. If, under olr- oumstancea lik these, th sentiment of na tionality has died out in the heart of any, w should despair or Kindling it anew by any representations, derived from either facte orargumenta, sines In all such "the power of facts and reaeon has evidently tncrnmbed to the power of illusion snd Imagination. Aa, however, the truth of a proposition has an abstract worth, even independent of It prac tical applications, it must ever be legitimate lo draw from the facti of nature and of his tory the deductiona which' they suggest to the reflecting; and it ia in this view that we cite tho subjoined appreciation of the moral and political leseont which patriotism combinea with aound philosophy to derive from the present experience of our country in the school of adversity. ' A Woman Pokorirq her Hdsbard. The Hsrtford Press gives an account of the death ofPhelpa Holcomb, of Tariflvllle, Conn., from poison administered by hia wife. Th partiea had been married aom years, but lived unhappily. Mr. Holcomb bad in hia employ a young man named Chaa Robinson, of whom he wa manifestly jeslous, and threatened to discharge him.
