Lying Abed in the Morning.
I lovo to rove in the aliady grove,
Where gentle zephyrs are floating;
I love to sit at the festAl board,
Where baokwheat cakes are smoking.
I love to gaz? at the golden blase,
Where Sol the West is adorning;
But this I love far better than all?
To lie abed in the morning.
That poeU should sing of the joys of Spring,
Js uot in the least surprising;
But I cau't conceivo why a man should weave
A sonnet to early rising.
Though Fanklin of old was a sage, I'm told
I can't go with him in scorning
The blisaful scenes in tho land of dreams?
When lying abed in the morning.
I love to lie when the sunbeams shy
Come peeping through tho curtain';
When phantoms bright regale the eight
With visions of coffee and muflius ;
When the bird's loud trill from the distant hill
The chorus of nature is joining?
If there's ought below can banish woe,
'lis lying abed in the morning.
Let tlioso who choose to retire to snooze
When tho ducks and chickens arc going,
And rub their eyes when forced to rise
At. Ainmnl ftwiminn .
? --'S ,
They loose the sight of the gorgeous night,
And ?pcnd their days in yawning ?
Till midnight damp I'll burn the lamp,
Aud lie abed in the morning.

'he Confederate Constitution?Interesting
Disclosures.
As a piece of historical iuformaion,
the letter of Mr. R. Barnwell
lliett regarding the construction
if the Confederate Constitution is
10th curious and valuable.
At the outset the dilemma preented
to the Confederate leaders
pas this?whether, on the one
land, to cling as closely as possible
o the old forms and the "old flag"
>f the United States, to the apiroved
Constitution, and to the
umiliar divisions and prescribed
cope of executive, legislative and
udicial authority, or to strike out
11 some new path, and essay a
more perfect Union." The form- '
r method had the advantage of
amiliarity, tradition and long exlerience;
the latter that of boldees
and independence. However,
be former triumphed. The Con'derate
flag was substantially the |
Id "Star? and Stripes," with some '
tars blotted out and some stripes 1
oliteratad ; the national, State, j

Mr. Rhett declares that it was ]
be determination of the fiouth to
lake the Confederate Constitution (
simply the Constitution of the *
ruited States as the South had ]
Iways interpreted its powers, with ]
nly such alterations as would re- J
love ambiguity," The first great. '
uestion; hinged. on -the Govern- 1
rnment's power to levy taxes and 1
spend their proceeds. "One party, '
hiefly at the South," according to '
Ir. Rhett, held that dongress had i
ower to levy taxes merely for rev- 1
pue to carry on the Government,
rhile "the other party, chiefly at '
tie North/* held that "this power
hould be exercised for different
nd antagonistic purposes, to j^reent
importations on whioli taxes
say be collected, and thereby pro
Dote ana encourage auierqnt'br*n- J
hes of Industry, by giving them
he market* of the United States."
rVe do not think this to be an aboltrtely
correct statement of the
geographical katua otf the free tra#?
Hr. ititott* purpose,
ihow why the clause merftog to

**!??

and provide ' for tlie common defence
and general welfare of tiio
United States."
\
And what Mr. Rhett did was to
substitute for the purpose* here stated,
namely, "to pay the debt," &c.
the words "for revenuo necessary
to pay the debts and carry on tho
Government of the Confederacy"
?which latter appears, in the Confederate
Constitution.
This however,- strikes one as '*>.>ing
"the difference betwixt tweed
dum and twcedledce becau.
whatever "misinterpretation" coiiJbo
made of the original clau.
could certainly bo made of tli><
substitute. The latter is quite a.
general, quite as ambiguous, an !
quite as pregnant with constructivepowers
as the former. Mr. Rlioil
himself was compelled to add,
therefore, specifically, a provision
that "no bounties shall be granted
from the Treasury, nor shall any
duties or taxes on importation.1
from foreign nations be laid to promote
or foster any branch of industry.
This, of course, was effectual
?the coup de grace to protection.
As a matter of fact, however, the
need of Soutii for the moment was
rather to offer a premium on for
oigu uiipuruiuous man to iovy a
tax 011 them ; and tlio provision in
the Constitution, therefore, became
important, the amount of foreign
commerce beiug small. The only
duties were laid by the blockading
squadron, and these were often so
heavy as to kill foreign trade, if
they did not foster domestic industry.
Mr. Uliett tells us also the history
of the internal improvement
provision. To the familiar clause
in the powers of Congress, "to regulate
commerce with foreign nations
and among the several States and
with the Indian tribes," under
which a constructive power to expend
money for internal improve1
? *
luema uus neen employed, was
added a proviso that the Confederate
Congress "should not appropriate
money for any internal improvement
intended to facilitate commerce;"
And it was provided t&at
sven in furnishing lights, beacons
tnd buoys, and improving rivers
ud harbors, the cost should be laid
on the navigation facilitated
thereby."
tiilt was Mr. Rhett, also, who proposed
making the Presidential term
sis years instead of four?>a really
sensible suggestion, though to be
hite, it made little difference as .
the case turned out. ; And it was
rajj' too, that proposed the wellfiftfwn
provisions for removals

HJh making constitutional amendments.
Altogether, therefore,: this
