love ? Do the diamond eyes bares weep ? Do
" the mocking-birds mourn ? Do the flowers
sigh? And they have not the half-not the
thousandth part of your happiness. They
liave no mind filled with the jewels of knowl
edge ; no heart overflowing' with love to God
and man ; uo soul with immortal hopes and
desires which will live fore*.or. Poor little
birds and flowers ! "Their exigence is but
for a brief day, or at most a brief season ;
and they die never to live again. Surely,
then, wc should be happier. . Look up, and'

roar Father in Heaven, who careth for you
-srho has numbered the very hairs i f your
head, and will never forsake you thro' ev.l

are inseparable, however much had been said
. to the contrary. Til* merriest, happiest,
kindest person I ever krew was-we have
sometimes said since the daisies grew over
bis grave-"an angel" v.hom we *'enter
tained unawares." If ever the love of God
shone in any bunnin face, his b'ue eye?, uow
clostd forever, beamed with that glorious

never discontented. Flowers of affection and

We all know the utter miaery of being de

daughters, has escaped the curse since the
-Angel waved his flaming sword over tho
barred gates of Paradise, and the first man
and woman caught its fearful glare as they
fled from the scene of their ain.' Verily, we
aro oftimes tempted to believe there i< uo
truth on earth ! All the fondest dreams of
youth deceived us ; all the hopes of riper
years deceived us ; the fairest fruit proved
but Apples of Sodom-dust and ashes !-and
the. flowers were Upas blossoms, or, ai best, a

tion of Hamlet to Ophelia, and well might
.sh? start. Cau one of* us hear it with com
posure ? We dread to be doubted, yet we
know there is no truth in us. How absurd

Ophelia ! with all your true , womanhood
your pure love and earnest pleading-your
flowers and-wild, sad song-*-ymir heart bro
ken lunacy and sorrowful death-nobody ever
charged you with being " too honest." In

this day, one is uncertain whether he .were
not the greater deceiver of thc. two. Duj. we
are running away.
For all this, no ono < an say there are
not some who bWi n'eVf r ' disappointed us
-whose '-'yea. is tea," and whose ';j?ay is

of trust and affection. A weil 1'r.owu wri

Three Extracts from Wy Journal.

"Off for thc wars!'" Yes, bebas gone!
The words fail heavily on my heart, while
the last-falling tear? almost blind me asl
write. But,-Journal, you-kuow not bow dear
he is to me-Wallace Hunter, roy betrotLed.
I have told you he was my* childhood's play
mate, my girlhood's friend, but I cannot ex
plain,to you how it is. that, sad as I am, bis
last words '. Mine, mine only, forever,*' echo
in my heart, awaking it from gloom ; Yrs,
yes, iu my inmost soul I feel that I am his,
his only, forever.
"Off for thc warn to-morrow," he ex
claimed as he entered our wicket gate ; and
despite my pride-lor I would not hr.ve bim
T?pow my love was given unsought-the cow
ard blood retreated to its source, and my lips
were white with unspoken anguish. Bat
soon he culled the crimson torrent back, and
brought the tremulous smile to my Hps.
Shall I tell you the magic words ? Suffice it,
I b?ve promised thai ere another Spring shall
make verdant the hills ?nd forests, I shall be.

heart i* wrung, but a lay of God-given sun
light cheers me when I think he is unchang

demon of camp life, are in his eyes, though a
shade of deeper thought is on bis noble brow,

Gone f.-rever now! They tell me he is
dead-that a mjuud o? ?esh turned clay, cov
ers my noble lover. They 'say he bravely
fought, until, as he stooped to iave m.\
wounded brother ?from the tramp of our ad
vancing cavalry, the deadly missile entered
i bis .?ide, and fulling lie exclaimed "Jesus!
forgive"-and with an effort " Tell my Net
tie"'-then-the heart that dictated, and the
j lips that spoke this message of love, were .si
j lent fore\cr. It is strange bow calmly 1
write-strange that 1 should stern to cure so
little. 1 even smiled aa a gossiping neighbor
romv.-k.ed to my mother. " ? thought Nettie

A writer in tho Jackson Appeal, who claims
to he. familiar with the planting districts of
Georgia aud Alabama, says the farmers are.
preparing to plant large crop-;, of cotton. Ho
hud conversed with many intelligent gentle
ttu-rt. who ii:forint d him that thc planters of
Middle Georgia and South Alabama intended
planting not only alj tho new law allowed
tli-m, but that they intended disregarding en
tirely a law which they cims'idtlred uncon
stitutional. We have beard these rumors
from sources nearer home, and ?have sofne
reason to fear there is s'<me truth in them.
We have heard it intimated-that, the Legis
lature had no right to transcend ihe. bounds
of the Constitution l>y dictating to men xchnt
they shall plant or sow, and then hy seizing
whatever provisions they shall raise at one
third its value. This is some fd* thc legiti
mate frtjits of government seizures. It opens
to our view a wry dark future. Our Con
gress, h is exhibited, nothing but imbecility
during the whole of its present session. Ap
parently members have been too bu-ily en
gaged in making personal explanations, vu
liaaftr resolutions of thanks to pelly military
officials, expelling reporters, discussing ?be
merits of .Mime proposed model for a (lag and
seal, or indulging in empty declamation con:
corning the law of Hdockado, to give their
attention to the currency or to the convnis
sarjal. ?drae of our .Slate Legislatures and
State Executives have boen rendering their
names illustrious by in-ane at tempts to de
stroy the rights of private property, the qnes
lionable enterprise of breaking down ali law,
ami by attempting to rc.volutioniz.-j society
generally. The results aro now looming up
before u\ and wlit-re shali the end be? Let
the Legislature oj th's Siajo guarantee *.:?
?ts citizms the anuiciii'rlgbt-s nf private prup
fjtty, ami the pr W?MO.I crop will always pruVe

On the other hand, let the planters Onto
gard the u-gent demands of the country;
let them disregard 'he peri!? which surround
them, and turn a dont ear to the eal's of
their countrymen, who aro now serving in
the field on half rations, and whose families
arc at home famishing for bread; let them
laugh at the distress everywhere apparent ju
our Intnl. ant; pjanl colton in? aulicijpitinn ol'
