"We will cling to the Pillars of the Temple 61O r, Liberties, and it It must fall,.ewl)ers mdt h un. SIMKINS, DURISOE & CO., Proprietors. EDGEFIELD, S. CO PTEMBER 1, 1858. A A RAMBLING CHAT ABOUT FLIR. TATION. -0 BY JENNY WOODBINE. -3 Tirs is emphatically the age of flirtation. Marriage has become an institution too "old fashioned" for anybody to patronise-the demand for white kid gloves has diminished; and the milliner's chance for selling that "lovely bridal hat" has grown "small by degrees, and beauti fully less." Well, who is to blame? Not the extrava gant woman, as Sophomore declaimers and con ti-eyed editors would have us believe. No, indeed-"jewels of bonnets" and "ducks of robes" may deter some from entering this time honored institution, but they are not the roots of this evil. Tho sin must rest upon the should ers of-male flirts! A bold assertion I know. Already I see Theodore Augustus sharpening his wits, and pen to " take me down" for saying so; and his argument will be that women are more prone to this evil than men. Well, Suppose we firt-I own we do, We learned the art from such as you; And we, whone'er, you truly love, Will models of devotion prove. No true womuan is a flirt, until disappointment makes her one; and then, losing all faith In everything, she unwisely determines to make others suffer for the pangat her young heart, " Which never more can leave it." Nature did not make her so-the heart must first be poisoned by having its affections called forth; and then thrust back upon itself to with er, ere she proves false to the dictates of her womanly nature." And who is the male flirt ? Not that "lady killer" whom you meet at Hops, at Commence ments, and at the Springs; whose polished cane, faultless collar, spotless shirt bosom, e.. senced handkerchief, curled moustache, " Luxuriant hair bruslie. with great pains, Cbvering perhaps a thimble-full of brains," all proclaim in trumpet tones the dandy, "Who is a thing that would Be a young lady if it could; And since ,t can't, does all it can. To show the world it's not a man." Not this young hopeful, who "drives" you out of evenings-hands you up the stairs-holds your parasol gracefully-presents you . with rose-buds-twirls your fan elegantly-run4 for ices-buys peaches for you on the cars-picks up your fallen glove-hands you to your car riage-and flatters you incessantly, comparing your eyes to "stars," your hands to "lilies ;" and your lips to " cleft rosebuds." You accept his attentions fur what they are worth-you lay no stress on his "hifalutin" compliments; but swallow them as a dose, nauseating at the time, but producing no future bad effect. You understand him-his arrows fall harmless, and do not so much as reach your heart. You never fancy that he is " in love" with you-because flattery is his profession; and you know that in half an hour he will be saying the same thiags to Susie Jane, which he h as just whizpered with such confidence in your individual ear. This creature should not be called a 9: flirt" -everybody knows him-nobody believes him -he is simply a nuisance, and does no real harm. In fact I rather like your "lady killer" --he has never yet killed anybody ; and " very prdiully" never will. lie is convenient, for he helps to "kill timo ;"- and while he fancies he is slaying your heart, is only hel ping to murder your tedious hours. But your genuine male flirt is not known as such-" the insignia of his profession" are not written on his brow-he is seldom "a ladies ma'n;" but goes about his work quietly; keeps up his reputation; and is known everywhere as " a man of honor." He forms your acquaintance in somne quiet parlor, and marks you for his vic tim, particularly if you be just out of school, or fresh f-om the country. lie begins by tel ling you that he detests coquetry in any, and eve.y phase ; that he seldom goes among ladies, because not being able to flatter them lie is not a favorite. His attentions~ are so delicate, and yet so marked that your vanity is pleased. lie spends a quiet evening with you, and talks of books; he does not put on your slipper if it chance to slip off; nor is he everla'stingly telling you that you-are fairer than the flowers you wear. No: he understands his business better than that. lie monopolises your attention-he effectually keeps away all " intruders"-he does 'not visit any and everybody, because that is not his game, lie plays his card, wvell, fo: his object is to make you believe that you are all the world to him. lie does not tell you in so many words that he loves you, but he uses words which have a double meaning, and which you can take in any sense you please. Hie talks of love; reads love poems; sighs softly and looks at you. Hie marks every brightening of the eye ; every flushing of the cheek ; every tremor of the lip. H~e knows exactly what to say, and how much to say-lhe never commnits himself ; and hiis tenderest sentences are so carefully worded that Paul Pry himself could make nothing of them. He teaches you the languageof the eyes; and knows exactly wh.en "a shot has told." This man would make a good surgreon, for he could look on the death-throes of a vJictim un moved. lie makes the human heart a study, and knows exactly by the expression of your eye what emiotioni is moving you. Wall, weeks glide on-it is the current report that you are " engaged ;" and what is more he knaows it, but does not " care a fig." What is it to him if he is keepinfaway others who would mean some thing. Hie veils his attentions under the mask of priendship and while every moment you are expectsing him to propose, he "speaks of the interest he feel rim your welfare" and calls you hisfrienmd! When he feels cosfldent that he has won your love, he slides away gradually leaving the "trail of the serpent" over all your flowers af hamplaes. He is blameless! The world would call him so. Ile never "addressed" you-never spoke of anything warmer than friendship! And while your happiness is sacrificed to his egregi ous vanity, he walks the ea'rth proudly; and perhaps pities your self-deception! Ah! he may be blameless in the eyes of socie ty, where loving looks, auid accents endearing count for nothing; but not all the waters of the Atlantic could wash that sin from his soul. But what becomes of the victim? Does she pine, and die? No, " Men have died, and worms have eaten them, But not for love;" and so of women. A fate worse thau death is hers. She finds herself like the miser, who goes to sleep fancying his treasure safe-and awakes to find himself penniless. She has " trusted all" and " been deceived"-she makes one man the standard of all; and when he falls from the pedestal, where fancy had placed him, she loses faith in everything. Her trust in humankind is gone-her soul is poisoned; and she becomes what true men, and women alike despise-a flirt! But when I see her in the Ball-room, the cen tre of a throng as soulless as herself; when I hear her loud laugh, and her heartless jests; when I look on the brow which blushes no more; and on the practiced eye which smiles but to de ceive ; when I see her luring others on to the rock where she was wrookod, and glorying in tho epithet of heartless, I sigh, because a noble natur is ruined; and go back to the time when she was young, and innocent; and lay the blame on him, who although the first to cry out against her, made her what she is. She is wrong, but she has been wronged ; and from one of the same sex whom she glories in deceiving, she learned her first lewson in decep tion. These crude remarks are not intended as a defence of flirts, coquettes, or whatever be their proper name-but only to prove that while they justly merit our scorn, they deserve also a portion of our pity. Ac-r.IUT, GA. For the Advertiser. FIROM.I OUR MOUNTIlN CORRESPONDENT. PCien:Ns DISTRICT, August, 1858. Ma. EDITOR: I am obliged to believe that "work is the life of a man." I quote the say ing of an aged person, who although quite illit erate, is yet. one of nature's philosophers The Greeks had a proverb that no man could be hap py withouts labor. Christians are also exhorted by the in-pired Apostle not to be s!thful in business. These are the oracles of true wisdom, nor loafers nor other devoteesof inglorious ease can prove to the contrary, should they :4* de mur and even continue to argue until they had whittled into very small pieces every bit of plank in the " universal world." Employment coupled with the idea of being useful is an an tidote for many of the ills introduced into our world by the transgression of our first parents in the garden ' Eden. The sun, moon and stars, the season, the rcstlc.ei ocean and the leaping rill-in fine, all the operations of nature with silent eloquence, plead the cause of untir ing energy. ]But there is a limit, beyond which, no iman may paS with impunity. Our very virtues when energized to excess degenerate into vice. Work must be interspersed with recreation-the mind must be occasionally un strung. This becomes a necessity with persons11 of sedentary and studious habits. After six or eight months of intense application either to business or study, what could be more delight ful and invigorating, especially in the dog-dauys, than a tour on horseback through the mountain region of Georgia and North Carolina ? When I set out, the other day, bent on cross ing the Blue Ridge, the weather was warm enough to make one long for the breezes, that fan the eagle's home. After riding about eigh teen miles on the Georgia side of the Tugalo, I cane in full view of the Currahec mountain in Iabershanm county. This rugged pile rises up 900 feet above the adjacent plains, and being rather isolated from the mmain range of moun tains, it is a striking and conspicuous object. The tourist has been wending his way, per chance for days, along through a section of coun try the features of which are altogether dull and common-place, when of a sudden he is brought face to face with this-* " Sky-piercinig suimmit that over-luoks the clouds." The contrast is so agreeable and exhilarating that the Currahee has been not inaptly termed " the Georgians' first love." Thme next bright link in memory's chain is Toccon Falls, which I atteumpted to describe last year. From the South, you approach this little Naiad recalm wi hout ever ascending a single mountain enminence. This cascale is a gem of the first water, transcendently beautiful, and yet endued with enough of the sublime to chasten our admiration into a feeling of awl! Clayton Ga., is improving very fast, and has quite a romantie situation. It is no'metaphor to say that this village is overshladowed by the mountains. Old Sol disappears long befor-e he sets in reality. The twilight here is long and delicious,-imfparting a soft rosy light, and at the same time withdrawving the heat. The scene is one of "strange beauty," and makes a most pleasing impression upon the mind. By the way, the citizens of Clayton tell some very gook jokes on themselves. In the days of yore, a gentleman passing through Town happened to give a few hard biscuits to some children that were playing in the streets. The little chaps, muistakinig the nature of the creature, ran into the house'and brought out some fire. Placing a coal upon the back of one of the biscuits, Tom sang out to Bill after this wise, " blow the coal, Bill, and he'll soon poke out his head and trot off in a hurry." Only a few years since, an exquisite of the soap-lock caste, rode up to abyofctizens standing in the public square, and nquredwhere he could find the Court Ilouse, (which, by-the-by, is not thp most capa I cio. in the world.) One of the cempany. who is known to be a dead shot at retort, re plied that, the boys had carried it dowen to the branch to scour it out ready for Court. About nine miles North of Clayton there is a splendid water-fall, having a perpendicular pitch of 100 feet; besides this, the streamlet frets and chafes adown the rugged slopes and among the mossy bowldera until it makes a de scent, in a vertical line, of at least 100 yards. The waters here are lucid as a sparkling foun tain, and the bed of the stream is very uneven and rocky. I was perfectly delighted with this " fancy exhibition of nature," but the Poet or the Painter could alone describe and repro duce its rain-bow tints, and its snowy veil through which is dimly seen the dark and frowning precipice. The white folks call this cascade, Mud Creek, and the Indians call it Eastatoee. What a contrast! The former ap pellation is altogether inappropriate, if not dis gusting; whilst the latter is poetical, and falls upon the ear in softened cadence like a dying swan's whispered melody, or " The faint exquisite music of a di eam!" How sweet the hay smells! How luxumiant the meadows look! And how strange it seems to see men reaping with nothinig more than a scythe blade. "Herds' grass" abounds, in con siderable quantities, on both sides of the Blue Ridge. As food fur stook, the farmers say that this hay Is equal to both fodder and oats. The people in the mountains have had their corn damaged by the frost for two successive years. This summer their oats were spoilt by the rust, and to "cap the clin10" they have neither peaches nor apples in their orchards,-a statp of things unheard of in this part of the world. Nevertheless, the hardy mountaineers are very cheerful, and expect a good time yet to come. The Tennessee is a remarkable stream, not only becausd of its meandering course, by which it strays off down into Alabama and then wan ders back across two States into the Ohio river, but because, despite the junction of other and I rger collections of water, it, retains its own t.ame up to the fountain head in the Rabun Gap). I rode down the Tennessee about twenty miles. The descent of the rivulet and of the adjacent valley is gentle and easy, forming ain excellent route for our Great Western Connection, known as the Blue Ridge 'Railroad. The scenery on either hand is wild and picturesque, and the bodies of bottom land are rich and extensive. I am of the opinion that the region of country between Chattuga river and the Sinoky Moui ains is destined to supply Charleston and all the intermediate Towns, with hay, apples, but ter, honey and beef for all time to come. And then there are vast quantities of copper ore here awaiting lailroad transportation. A Ciii cinnati company have bought up 50,OO acre.s of mineral lands in this mountainous country, and it is said, they have expressed their deter nination to purchase as much more. The Cul lo% hee mine, situated about 10 imiles North of Webster C. H., N. C., and belonging to W. II. Bryson and Co., pro mises a rich yield of coppir with a very considerable intermixture of silver. Franklin, N. C., is a lleas-ant little village. There are two flourishing Schools here ; one Fur boys, and the other for girls. Mountains, lofty and majestic, are seen in the distance. Near at hand, there is a number of hilloeks with reen-swrd and shady oaks,-fine sites for taste and wealth to make an architectural display. [ suppose this p~lace must be a good nmarket, in which to sell blankets, as you can't slecp comn b~rtably here without one, even in the Summer season. At Franklin, you will hear a great deal said about the mrpountain traut ; in this vicinity 300 of them can be caught in a day by one man. I had the pleasure of seeing and tasting sonme of these delicious fis.h. . They are speckled regularly and beautifully all over the body, but they have no scales. They always seek the coldest and plurest water. nd now I fly oll' at a tangent to White Wa ter Falls in Pickens, S. C., without taking things in the order of their occurrence. C]arashihatay, r White Water, is the most celebrated cataract in the "Palmetto State." The rivulet it.self is one of considerable size, and it pitches headlong down a steep shelving rock, wvhich must he at least 250 feet high. I made a pilgrimnagu to this far-famed locality in coumpany withI a favor ite friend. Before reaching the falls, we stood n the brow of a mountain overlooking the Keowee valley, and saw the yielding, vanishing louds, like a ghostly presence, sweep the ground at our feet, whilst to the South and East, prismatic vistas " bade the lovely scenes at distance hail." Thence descending a contin uous succession of hills to a rocky knoll irradi ated by the sun-lit face of the White Water, we heard the roar of thme cataract. Turning our horses, we rode down thme rivulet through opse and shady forest, fit haunts for dryads nd sylvan boys, to thme precipitous and jagged rocks over which White Water pours its milky tide. There was a pause ; we stood spell-bound upon the verge of the Fall, looking with fearful delight adown thme long rugged slope of dashing waters made white as the driven snow by the swiftness of their descent. We lingered long, nd with soul-stirring emotions at many a point and angle, where the eye takes -in the magic wvonders of nature. The wildness, the beauty, the splendor, and th-i magnificence of thme scene lights up a blaze in memory's gloom~which can ease to shine only with the extinction of life itself. No one, over whose breast nature holds empire, could forget the blended music of those sghiing pines and roaring floods ; nor could he fail to remember those frightful crags, which rise high above the misty cavern filled with the presence of that " spirit of all the colors in heaven and on earth ;" nor that " whitening sheet," as seen from the base, decked with a thousand evanescenit gleams and ever-varying hues. Although White Water has no legen dary reminiscence to lend a charm to its " ei. bowering shadles," and give a tongue of elo quence to its impetuous wate'rs, yet is speaks r its.lf in a voice and with an aspect, wIch agitate the very Jhin us. But time steal ing on, we bade a Iarewell to these " fairy splendors." About the hour 4ay-light dies, we rode into the dreamy fJocassee, situate three miles below the This valley is full of the romantic, the a and the picturesque. Environed by hig mountains it seems; secluded from then t of upper terminat1 ql hiompson and the White Water mingle thoeir oy wates; the Jocas see, which springs f. this union, laves the Tentire stretch o i valley with its limpid flood. Six~m S sayit in grace and grandeur, the scenery Uf 'this * pn is not surpassed by thu' of Switzerlani~ -cIndeed, the imaginings' of the Poet could ,.rly give an additional charm to Jocaasee'' "Elysian vale;" so com plete is its ownei beauty and loveliness.

Familiar as our people are generally with the unostentatious habits of the chief officers of our Government, one cannot witness them, with the knowledge of the pomp of show of royalty to invite the contrast, without involuntarily in dulging it. On Saturday last President Buchan an arrived at the Relay House, or Washington Junction, as it is more properly called, en route for Washington City. There was a rumor abroad that he was to arrive, and the visitors had consequently grouped about the house when the train came along. We soon perceived the President coming fram the cars to the plat form, looking hearty, but thoroughly travel soiled, smiling and cheerful. By his side, and evidently offering with gentlemanly deference the couctesy- of attention, was a rather rough looking individual, whom we took for a'conduc tor or brakesman. The gentleman will excuse our blundering in such a matter-but upon in quiry we were informed he was Sir William Gore Ouseley.

At the time, however, both basins were occupied by two young men, neither of whom seemed to be aware that the Presi .dent was about. He waited patiently some time, when some one spoke and invited him up stairs. He declined, however, quietly remark ing that he would "wait for his turn."

At about this time a person who had come into the room, sung out pretty near to him, "Look here, I thought the old Pres. was to be here to. day-." The speech was cut short by a nudge, while a momentary comical expression pas.-ed across the face of that sane "old Pres." A .segar was handed to him by a friend ; he took a good satisfying drink of-not "old rye," which he is said to affect, when prime-but ice water, had barely fired up his segar, when the bell rung,.and "all aboard" summoned the Chief Magistrate of the United States to his seat in the cars, and away they went to Wash ington.

A DUTen CI.AUDE MELNoTE.-The 'Cincin. nati Commercial publishes the following romance, which would do for the latitde of-Paris: Certain circles of the Rhine were entertained, not long since, by a love drama, in which the dranmiisaersoue were a young German candy nikerlold nfand flberil, but poor and aspiring, and a buxom lass of aristocratic par. entage, speaking in sweetest Tenton accents, al so not rich, but ambitious of station and the possession of lucre. They met, ' twas in a crowd, his gay demeanor, his winning manners and in. posing liberality, attracted the fair fraulein. He, too, was overcome by her winsome smile and charming voice. He sought her presencA con stantly. She, nothing loth, received Mim as sweethearts greet their lovers. He wooed her by rich preseus ; gay rides with a dashing turn. out ; escorted her to halls ; lavished money like a prince. They were soon married. The wed. ding was brilliant. Twenty carriages, filled with imerry lIls and lassies, composed the gay escort.. She was hapy !s a bride could be, and ievelled in visions of wealth and luxury, A brief honey. muon was joyfully spent. Our hero bremie slhort. lie concealed his misfortune till secrecy secnd no longer a yirtue. He revealed all to his now astonished wife.

On Sun day he departed, going anine kntew where, bit assuring his once loved bride that he would re turn again in future--perhaps rich--perhaps, like Clau'de, a general. This is a melancholy fact. A good one is told of a worthy deacon in the city of S., in Northern Ohio. The deacon was the owner and overseer of a large pork-packing: establishment. Ilis duty it was to stand at the, head of the scaldinig trough, watch ini hand to "rtime" the' length of the scald, crying "Hog in!1" when the just haughtered hog was to be thrown in the troughs, and "Ilog out' when the watch told three minutes,. Otie week the press of business compelled the packers to unusually hard labor, and Satur day night found the deacon completely ex hausted. Indeed ho was almost sick the next miorninmg, when church time came; but lie was a leading imember andi it was his duty to attend t the usual Sabbath ser vice ii he could. lle went. The occasion was one of unusual solemnity, as a rev ival was in progress. The minister preached a sermon well calculated for effect. llis pero ration was a climax of great beauty. Assumng I the attitude of one intently listening, ho recited to the breathless auditory : " Hark ! they whisper, Angols say-" r " Hog in!" came fromn the deacon's pew, in I a stenflrian~ voice, Tho astonished audience tur-ned their attention from the preacher.

If, as Governor Cumming assures the cunu try, peace and good will prevail in Utah, the Saints must be admitted to have a way of their qwn in making this state of things known. In deference to their prejudices the army, after enduring Winter privations at Bridger, takes a position more than a day's journey from the holy city. If the tented fields were nearer to the harems, the Prophet, Apostles, Seventies and Elders might feel the virtue of their women to be insecure. Accordingly, as the military-, arm is subject to the civil, General Johnston yields to Governor Cumming, and betakes him self to the safe distance of Cedar Valley. Mean while, the Saints return, though in no amiable mood, to the Great Salt Lake City. They are strenuously averse to politeness and* ioapitality. The Gentile stranger must not And, shelter within their gates. He may sleep in his wagon, or on the ground, as he can; but by these self. styled peaceable, loyal fellow-citizens, he is re fused the accomodations which civilized min uniformly accord to all but open enemies. Nor is this sort of persecution confined to individual strangers. An edict of Brigham Young forbids the Mormons to sell the necessaries of life to' the soldiery. Can this be styled peace ? Are the commu nity thus setting tbemselves offensively against the authority of theUnited States, to be re garded as good citizens? We would judge th4 liformous by their acts.

The time is at hand when the anomalous relations existing between the Mormons and other American citizens must be changed, one way or the other. In what direction the change will be it is not difficult to :onjecture. That problem is solved by the 'en tire course and bearing of Brigham Young. Evidently, the Prophet i bending before the blast for a temporary purpose. He looks for the day when, instead of fawning he can fight.
