It was late In the day before the toasting was
over, and the yellow tints of the evening sun
were beginning to grow pale. But yet one
thing remained to be attended to-the perfor

the Cake." The snow white pyramid was only
surpassed by the modesty and beauty of the
maidens who surrounded i, and the gallantry
of their youthful admiters.' The whole made
up a scene of rural simplicity, which is seldom
looked upon without feelings of complete santis
faction, The musicins played the "White Sul

to the surroundiiig crowd. Thnsended the day.

To the Editor of the H1amburg Journal:
Last night; when the suns bright rays had fl-d,
And darkness o'er the earth its bable wings had
, tired by the lore of men now dead,
Shut up all books, and sought my humble bed,
And there, when sleep hind taken me to her
Iliad a dream, a dream which none but you
It seemed as it' several months there course had
And all over our land shone the winters sun,
Methought that Henry; about whom so much
Had disappeared and hid his drooping head,
Havuag bid farewell to Adams his loving friend,.
He retired to Ashland, there his remaimong days
And too, I thought, from Tennesseces'soil a
Poke stalk had arisen,
So strung, that it defied those blasts by winter
And so tall, so spreading, that every person in
Could gather under its branches in sweet com
And there they all did gather, both young and
old, both rich and poor,
Save some few, who, ir favours, with Clay to
Ashland would go;
Those, who under the Poke stalk set, talked of
their country's glory,
Those, who with Clay to-Ashland went, told
each a long story,.
Of what they had done in urging his cause, or
fighting his battles,
By their cutting wit, their potent reasons, and
And to all and each, from his munificence,
Clay something tendered,
According as their stories pleased, or according
to the services reiidered;
To the gamblers. he gave lessons from H oyle
on cards aiid back gammon,
And bid them watch the Pokeits, and lick 'em
To the swearers, he gave Tom Payne and such
As will make a christian frown who in them

Except those whose deeds are too enormons
Here deep sympathy pierced mue, and from my
slumbers I awoke,
And fiuding this but a dream, into a laughter I
The above is only a dream, but ir, would be
Editor, have not dreams an interpretation, and
will not the present aspect of our political hor
izon justify me to infer from this dream, that
next November James K. Polk, of Tenn. will
e onr President elect, and that Henry Clay,
of Ky., the friend of Adams, and the abuser of
Jackson, the quondam ernemy of itandolph,
and the present hater of Calhoun, will find
upon his own farm that retirement which his
inconsistent public acts seem to entitle him to.
Can I not likewise ieaso::ably infer from this,
that manay, who were induced to supporgthi7

ciples, hut becatuse they expee~ed by so doing
to receive sonme reward, will be disappointed.
Among ihe disappoir~ted can I not mark you a'

it is a possible thing for a brright genias to be

to which Clay is opposed. is the cause of truth,
ad truth 'vill and must flourish ; althouuhkin
1840 its beams were scareeseen in these United
States yet now its brightness is far above the
horizon's verge, and its melody is heard in every
breeze, that comes -from the East. from the
West, from the North, or from the South.
Clay carries in his lint a charter for a United
States Bank, in heis hbrnd he holds a tablet, up
on which is-written tariff, distritbdtion,.internal
iproveinent, assumption. consolidiation. and
utter scorn for Texas. Polk, wishing no bank

there not others who toasted public men on
that occasion?' Did not some person say and
truly say that Pickens was worthy or'being
Dur States Senator? Was not MeDuffie toast
3d 1 Was not Calhoun and likewise others?
[ think that you should consider yourself'honor
ad, fir being mentioned. where the names of
such nen were; and should Clay reward you
with a bob tail mule as I dreamed he did, do
yon ride him, and when he dies do yon skin
him, and when you are aboutto die; do you be
riuenth his hide , a rich legacy to your posteri
iy." But I shall not meddle with yours and
Camfield's affairs; but will merely say that the
rea-son why I have addressed you was to 'tell
you my dream, to give you my interpretation,
and in concluaion to give you a bit of advice.
My advice to you is to divorce yourself from
the press, to prepare yourself with the instrm
ments necessary, and turn ottt to manling rails,
or ditching, or rowing a boat, or currying hors
es, or blacking boots, or some other employ
ment. Nature never intended you for an Fdi
tor, then why should you strive to accomplish
that which you never can If you are "lean
and lank," or squeamish in consequence of the
Clay yni have eaten, I invite you. before you
set out in your new emplaymerit, to come to
Chota ; where, instead of frogs, mushroon's
and tadpoles, we will give you - chicken fix
ings, flour doings, and egg preparations," and
toO we will give you par-boiled shoat.roast beef,
fryed meat, gravy, and now and then a few
poke berries: all of which is very good for
those who eat Clay, and I might add indispen
table to those who would split a full task of
rails. Be sure to take a full dose of poke ber
ries and scour yourselfwell before you comei
smong us, for we cannot endure the scent ofr
A ScHooL Boy or CHo-rA.
P. S. Mlost worthy Editor, if instead of com.
ing to Chota, you sh'ould choose to kick uap a
:ust, and show signs that you wish to fight, I
will say to you that I am .eady fr yo, yes I
will fight with you, from the dawning of the
mornings light, till the decline ofthe evenintgs
un ; and as we are both large, very large. no
ble, very noble mena, I presume, you will bate.
io objectiona to discarding pistols, rifles, yau
gers, swords anid such like thingys, as are usually
resorted to by others, more feeble titan .onr
selves, atnd that you will readily yield assent to
mue, whlen I sa9 that 'ot affair should be settled
by the nioble cannion;- you can' take your stand
ii the fort at St. Angautine, and I will choose
the one on Suliivansi Island, thus situated we
wdll take a few cracks at each oilher.
For the Aduertiier.

The cause of Temperance is at this
moment exciatng a deep interest in the
public mind. That much good has beeti
done by the Temperauce organization, and
that brighter rewurds await it, if properly
conducted, I am not disposed to 'doubt. I
wish the reform God speed ;I would ban~
ishs intoxicating drinks, as a beverage,-from
the land; I would, if- I could, carry. the
truth to the umind of every man, that alco
hol is she fruit f'ul source of disease, of mnise
ry and of crime, and that-its use is never
necessary but as a medicine. .H aving thus4
dennaed my position, I proceed to notice, in'
nao unkind spirit, one of the mnatters wi ii
was discusbed before the late.Convenotin.
Mr. Ayer, a -Delegate from Bainuwel.
introduced a Resolution approving th51
College Temperance Society, and coma.
mending-it to the support of the Faculty;.
this he'sessained lay a speech, int whint
he handled the.Faculty wirb gloves off
So unmerciful was the beating, thay1m~
sure the maost hard hearted must have iad~
their sympathies excited- H e said that he
was once a student in that.College, that
he found an amount of dr-ankennessthere
whtich was unparalleled, that lhie Ieft it,~
went to other Colleges, and as thedsilu

I do not pretend to quote iterally from
the gentleir-an, b~tit he said ini substance all
this, and-muctihnore. . The resolitiion swas
opposed by N. 'L. Griffin, Es and the
Rev. Mr. DuBose. CasI Me-Willie,, of
Camden, advocated it, arid-de'elared that,
