As the impression a d. respecting the
health of Abbeville DisM, is unfavorable, we
deem it necessary to say. that Lowndeaville

the uipper country. The Village itivituated on
a high and dry ridge. remote from any standing
water, as -well as all catises of disease; it must
therefore continue to be healthy.
In point of morality. wi believe it is gener

Childhood is like the laughing hours
Of early Spring
The very cloud that o'er it lowers
A charm can bring;
For, like an April sky,
A shower, a sunny ray,
So the bright tear in childhood's eye
A smile can chase away.
But even whilst we gaze
Those early slays are gone,
And soon the glow ing rays
Of Summer hasten on :
The bud haih opened to the flower,
The boy to manhood sprung.
And from his heari sin's dark'ning power
Its bitterness hath wrung.
He dreams that he can win from fame
Asn honored, deathless name;

But mtonimory enshrouds in night
The last hope of the brave.

Naught, save a widowed mother's tear.

And mournfully his heart
Echoes its tender tone,
Hi. airy dream. depart,
His hope of faime has flown.

Whose leaves fall one by one,

And age, like Auttumn, chill and sore.

And yet so brief
Till all the weary heart would crave

The coming winter of the grave.

A HINT roR yA4uaar.--The Collecting
Month-Not at Home.-The Pbiladelphia
Spirit of the Times tells the following story
at the expense ofone of its customers:-.
The devices of collectors, it is known,
are various as they are sometimes ingeni
ous-and more especially so with collectors
of newspaper bills. Ours hasjust related
us the following which being good as well
as late, we give it for the benefit of dll par
ties. Dropping it at th6s place of business
of a slippery customer yesterday morning,
he addressed the servant with-"Is Mr.
Butler within?" 'No; he is out of town."
"When can I see him?" "I don't know
have-you any special busises with tim?"
"Yes, there is a small- hill which I wish
to settle." "Well" said the servant, - I
don't know w bother he will return this week
or not." . But I wish to pay the bill as I
am to leave town imniediately." "0! you
with to pay him some money. iHe id up
stairs, i thinking; I will call him
Please to walk in; ti'ke a thair, sir, your
hat if you please. Mr. Butlerwill be with
you in a moment."
CaAn APPL E,oquirc.-The fol
lowing tpeech was perpetrated in Pike
country, Illinois, by a buck-eye lawyer of
those parts. It was upon a case of a dead
Gentlemen of the jury-it are one thing
for u rhan to be brought up, and It are a
nother thing for him to think he are; as for
that are man (his opponent,) I dont think
he war ever brought up at all, but jist na
turally fotched down on a raft! He have
said a gread deal about vexations, suits,
and sich; but, gentlemen, if he had a come
don a to this court, and had'nt found no
suits on docket, I guess there'd a been a
nother sort of vexation then. And vexa
lions or not, the gentleman gits as many
fees out on'ein an any body else. He have
told you that we have not proved our cow
to he worth a single cent, and you don't
know that she was worth any thing. Now
this are not the idea of a sound and legal
lawyer, but are the notion of a mushroon!
Sir, there never war a cow since the days
of old Adam that war not worth a single
cent-for if she warn't worth nothing for a
breed cow, she are worth something for
her hide and taller, and the tail goes with
the hide! He have said much more about
our evidence. Now this are not a crimi
nal case, and we an't obliged to have pri
ma facie evidence. If it war a criminal
case like murder, then, before you can find
him guilty, yon must have prima facie evi
dence of the fact-I say prima facie evi
dence, that is, sell evident of itself! But
this an't a criminal case,and we atn't bound
to have primoa hicie evidence. And now I
think on't the gettleman told you it war
a civil suit for damages, and he said the
law I rend to you war for a crimnal oflW-ce.
It war so, ge-ntienen, and I renad ii to you
tat show you what we monught have de,e
if we had a choose tao he vexatious as the
gentleman supposed-we mought have
made a criminal case, but we did'nt; andl
now. gentletnatn, I'll tell you a case that
camne into my head, but I don't know war
it is. A man war ttuck up for stealing
ducks, and they tried him, and war going
to find him guilty, when he proved that
they war all drakes,tand so they did'nt have
prima facie evidence of the fact. But as
I said before, gentlemen, we an'm in a
criminal case, andl we an't bound to have
pritma facie evidence. The gentleman
have esaid his client's are a hard case. it
are a hard ease, gentlemnen of the jury,
and it ought for to he; for what says the
good book-it says " The ways of the
transgreaasors are all hard !" and that's the
reason why the gentleman's client's are a
Miss:ssiPPi Eavaaraa.-We learn
from the Natchez Vreo Trader of the 21st
