I was not disturbed again that night, and
indued do not xcmember much more, until.
I found myself on a litter, and among
friendly faces. Looking forth, as I was
borne awayx I saw only one sight in all
that ghastly field of death. It was the
old Zingara's corpse. Plundered in turn
by my soldiers, it lay naked, stripped of
its gaudy rags, and a monstrous vulture
had selected it for his prey, aa something
more csrrupt thau all that lay around.
My faithful Achniet told mo that for
hours after they found mo ho could not
succeed in getting me to relax my gripe
on my Colt's pistol. If I survive these
wars, and ever beconio a respectable citi
zen in "ould Ireland" agaiu, that weapon
shall be a precious heirloom to hand down
to my childreu's children as the instru
ment of my providential escape from such
a death.

the support of a pro-Slavery Democrat, and
he asks whether tho Whigs of Georgia will
be content to do less. Thero can be no
divided interest at the South. The sys
tem of Slavery is in danger, its enemies
are growing stronger every day, and the
only salvation is to unite as one mad,' with
the assistance of those at tho North1 who
are willing to accept their nomination. By
sinking all subordinate differences and giv
ing a cordial and unanimous support .' to
Northern Democrats who adhere to the ir
stitutions of the South, tho party of Slav
ry extension may become triumphant an
invincible.' " ' V:"
There can be no mistake about such
talk; it is to the point open, bold and
unreserved. Tho policy of the South is
uuion for the sake of Slavery, and the on
ly policy by which it can be met at tho
North is union for the sake of Freedom.
No other division of parties is now practi
cable ; no other division is now desirable.
All the old grounds of party distinction
have been merged by the course of events
in this single and nioinentms question,
whether our Government is to be a Gov
ernment of Freemen, or a Government of
Slaveholders. :.- ;
We do not mean that the people - will
cease to chorish their favorito: convictions

tariff, internal improvements, the currency,
aud more recently of Nativeism nnti-Na-tivuism;
but that these questions will be
reserved and put aside fur the more press
ing and vital issue which the actual crisis
forces upon our decision. We moan that
men of every shade of : opinion as to these
matters, are now called upon to act in ref
erence to a whole distinct affair a ques
