TERRY, c. E X. D Commissioner's Office, Oct. 23, 1843: Nov.] 3m 40 WINTER IS H ERE. - l....LIZA -COOK. Winter is here, the old robin has come To remind us.with tip-tapping bill, That his mot nng repast of thedelicate crumb Should be spread for him now on the sill. Thou shalt have it, all saucy and rude as thou art, Strutting up in thy warrior red: I adore thy sweet note, and I love thy bold heart, So come here, pretty Bob, and be fed. Winter-is here, for the dove-cago i , found Taken down from the vine.covered wall; The rough-coated spaniel and favorite bound Sneak into the tire-lighted hall. The door that wes flinging wide open of late Till-night sent her heralding star, Where the porch trellis bent, and the eglan tine's weight, 'Tis now fast with the bolt and the bar. Winter is here, the gay hearth ia tindrest, All stript of its wreuthings of green ; The cricketonce more whistlesont from its nest, And the bm ight snapping wood-blaze is seen. We circle that blaze when the morning's dark frown Lingers long on the mist-covcred pane; A few hours roll over, the dim sun goes down, And we meet by that warm blaze again. Winter is here. all the flowers are dead; No posey ia gracing trh room But corals and near!. of rare lustre are spread In the holly and mtist!etoe bloonm. Tht herds a:c bronght in from the verdurelk se hills To their coverts for shelter and food ; Thm trout nestle deep in the rush-bordering rills, The rooks have come back to their wood. Winter is here. the old tottering man, Closely iutlled, goes shivering forth ; The bareheaded urchins laugh loud as he can, With their glowing cheeks turned to the north. The sent 'neath the beeches is tenantless now. Ther^'s no loitering form in the shade; But the dance gives a warmth and a flush to the brow, While the quickest ofjig tunes is played. Winte" s ' ere,let us welcome him on, Ret. . . ar old Christmas is near ; And when Christmas with all his gay feasting tas gomne, Why then we've the merry new rear. lieu e's a health to- the rich who will give to thme peer, Let plenty amid mercy ne'er part; And though bitter winds blow throug'h the, white cloumis of snow, No witntershall fall on thme heart. Enjoyment .-When 1 walk ihe streets, I use the following natural maxim, viz: that he is the true possessor of a thing whoenjoys it, and not hec thar owtns it without the enjoy ment of in. 't'0 convinice myself that I hare a property in-the gay part -of all the-guilt chariots that I meet, which I regard as atnemnents designed to delight my eyes, and the itnagination of those kind people whoe sit in them ant tired only to please me. I have a real, and they only ani imnagiuntey pleasure from their interitor, emhellishments. Upon the same principle, I have discovered that I um the p~roi:ietor of all thte necklaces, the crosses, stars, brooches, amnd embroidered cloth, which I see at a play or a birth night as giving anorec natural delight to the spectator than to those that wear them. And 1 look 'on the beauxa nd ladies as so many paraqutets in .an aviary, tulips in a gardeu, designed purely for 'my diveision. [ Berkely. Courtship-Deacon MIat-vin, of Con neetictnt, a large landholder, and exemnpia ry men, was exceedingly ecentric in- some of his notions. His courtship is said to have been as follows: H'aving, one day. mounted his h'irse, with only a sheepskin fora saddle, he rode in front of the hense were Betty Lee lived, and, without dis mounting, requested Betty to come to him; on her coming, he told her that the Lord had sent him there to'inamrry her. Betty reilihef, "thbe Lord's.will be done." "FWay thevhat'does the pritster live on?'' Whson?"' "Be'eause'jyou borrow MUr. Smith's paper every 'vsok,'adhe hasn't pa~i for ihe naner ubcselwa ibener." (BY- REQUEsT. J .. From the: Hanbug Journal. ir. Edito-- It/desire with your per mission, to make through the columns of your paper some remarks on a subject, that ray-find its way among the records of history4 and were I master of.-tbe Jan guage, and could handle the goose quill as well as I *cah a jack-plane, or a sledge hammer,'I w Id make a rue and interest ing-picture of; the case. But' as it is, I must contentmyself with rnaking such as my narrow littlits will dictate. That nototious'Bridge Case is in ques tion, viz.--"John W. Yarborough, Trus tee, and -Henry Shultz, vs. The Bank of the State of Georgia ; the City Council of Augusta, and G. B. Lamar." I have, since the Decree it) the case has been pro nounced by the Cbhancellor, and confirmed by-the Court of Appeals in this State, seen, in several public journals, expression of hope that tiiis'discussion might finally and forever setle this questiou. Thu Chancellor -thought proper to make simi lar remarks inbis Decree; and I flattered myself with the hope, that such might be the event. But'the result has provet ott -rwise. The Case has tO go back to the United States Court, where it originated, and where it nevei has been finally settled, and for whidi rinidtval, prepsarations are now: in progress, atit.in which'.Court I am glad to say, the-case -will be beyond the - influ ence of sectional- prejudices-beyond the influence of Banks, and beyoud the influ ence of Town Corporations, and where the facts, and the law alone will prevail. It1as been rifyfate to be in law these twety-twoyeat,.fdid it may be my rate to die in law. - fe it so! Now, sir, let us look at the "danide! -Atm I attempting to take the labor apjd the property of my fel low men ? No, -ot so ! They are at tempting to take my labor and my prop erty, without money and without price; and - am endeqvoring to resist their eruel intentions: F ift F had built no Bridge und .no Townthere ' would have been no contest for-.u Bidge,-and fir a Town, and I would tot have been -in law, nor in tor tent these seriosof years. What are the facts? - Thero-came a man. -from beyond tbeseas, with:talent; with spirit, and with perseverance;: a" -accomplished an en terprise which natives after two unstccess ful attempt, hakabandoned as impracti cabl'-ttie diifohtillir-defea''bear- wit ness to the present day.- A Bridge ! a structure thatgrapples two powerful States A Bridge ! that bids defiance to mighty floods. A Bridge !-a highway over a re bellious stream, for man and 'for beast by day and by night. Even when the face of the earth is submerged by floods, you find a safe passage from one State into an other. And can there be a man with com mon sense, living, who would from his h.eart say, that i should ever surrender this structure, with thaetorinous sum of $684, 0)00.00. to the power or chicanery of man kind uniustly, or that I am not deserving to enjoy the neitefits of its fruits myself? No! I do not believe that there is; and vere I to say otherwise, I feel that I would do injustice to the human race. There are many, very many, who ap preciate this structure very highly, with a hearty desire to be masters, or the owners of it. And is it not natural-does not crm mon sense say, that a father loves his child better, and appreciates its qualities higher than a stranger?- 1 do not crave one dol lar more than what is my own. lily own, and nothing but my own do I want; and for that I shall contend during my natural life, if I do not obtain it before; and after that, I hope that others will proceed witb it, for which purpose,- prompt arrange meats are tmadev so that nor even my "long hoped for death," will benefi those perse etntors. I prefer that -part or this money shoutld go to finish the Monroe Rail Roadi, thatn for those u~surpers to keep it. There is one paragraph in. the Chancol for's Decree to.which I request at tention, it is as followse :-"Then as to any right of- the Complainant in the Bridge. itself, it would he sufficient to say, that all the Comoplaitnaut Shtultz's right and interest therein has passed away by the expiration of his Charter. The franchise or emclusive privilege wvhich c'onstito'ted if hi's property;, no lunger exists, and the material struoture is attached to, and part of the soil, antd wouild be the property of the States, the owners of the soil, if the franchise had nut been tenewed to another." This is confiscating' a citizen's property. It gives our Bridge after the eftpiration of Charter, to the State, without tmoney and withottt price. True, the franchise be longed to the State, anmd the-State may, after the expiration of our Charter, give it to atnother person; but can the. Stare take our Bridge and give-it away too? Sup. pose it to be a ferry ! The State may grant the franchise to another, but can the ferry-hboat be taken nnd'given away also by the Stare? According 'to this principle every Rail Road, -and every Batnking hmouse wtould, after fte expiration of rt-eir charters, be the property- of the State Sny~t hey bought t he premises, upon which they build--and so did we, for wye paid to :he formter proprietors of the ferry,.S8500 for the laud on wvhich the Bridge stands, and the ferry right: and then we paid 873, 000 for the builditng of the Bridge, and af ter twenty-one. years uli belong to thes .State! and besidei which,.we, biit .th Bridge udder the a uthority of the State at our dwn. expenas and Iabor--th' Site never paid one dollsrjif'rhe~building of it; 'Th'e Chancellor EiI Aivb mfecredit foi my acts, if he could not giye me my btidge I ays ---"On the 24th-of )Ina.: 18191 the Bridge. Company stopped. payment. Upon beitig apprized of this, the Com plainant Shultz,- who had .made arrange ments for going to Europe,. returned. and resumed his place in the.firm.. The evi 'dence is, that Shultz advanced $15,000 of his own funds to pay the deposites in the Bask." This was the act of an honest man: it was the ait of a friend in time of need.. Few! yes, very, few, would have .performed this- act. They would have kept their $120,000 in their pockets and -set sail for Europe, instead of returning to Augusta and paying their money for a friend. . . The Chancellor further says:-The Complainant Shultz is naturally disposed to think, that he must have suffered injus tice, from having been deprived of prop erty that was not only a matter of interest, but of pride and feeling; and from haying been harassed and. pursued on account.of his responsibility for. a Compauy,.io the failure of which he, as I am fully satisfied, did not at all contribute; but I believe be is inclined to shift the blame from those to whom it properly belonged, on account of somie recollection of early kindness (an act of gratitude ?) .and throw it on others who bave dune nothing more than to stand upon what they fairly regard as their just rights." Yes Sir! they shall have their money .n ith interest, but they shall not have my Bridge. - line, the Chancellor admits, that.iae ted the part of an honest man.. He ad mits that I acted the part of a friend in time of need; and hq also admits, that I acted the grateful 'man. These are con cessions.of.the- highest-virtue. tbat.man kind can .be posaessed- of,. and which are .appreciated by me higher than all your robes.and your gold. HENRY SHULTZ. Hamburg, S.
