ON Till COAST OF NORMANDY.
Calmly fades the light of day—
Faintly sighs the breeze away—
Music steals from every bower
'Tis the lonely vesper hour.
Pilgrims sad, and hoary men,
Chant their beads twice o'er again—
Sunset's rays now dimly lower
O'er the pensive vesper hour.
Twilight mourns in silver gray
Daylight's last remaining ray,
Weeping gems—a pearly dower—
Pale and mystic vesper hour.
Fairies from their mossy glade,
Seeking vales now cast in shade,
Sprinkle o'er each closing flower,
Tears that cool tha vesper hour.
Spirit of the azure air
Veiled in hues so soft, and fair,
Weep for transient is thy power
As this balmy vesper hour.
Now, adieu the beauty dies,
And entombed with day it lies
Night now comes—gono is thy power
Sad and dreamy vesper hour.

The tea tilings had been carried out,
the table set back against the wall,
the crumbs brushed from the clean

fire. A bountifully piled waiter of

Hetty sat on the other side, sewing,

"Bless my soul, Hetty, what was

"It's not late, mother—only a little

Colonel Francis "YV". Pickens, who
ha* just, been elected Governor of
South Carolina, is a native of that
State, and is about fifty years of age.
He has been in public life for the last
twenty years, and represented his na
tive State in Congress from 1835 to
1845, during which period he enjoyed
the entire confidence of his.constitu
ents, and was regarded as one of the
leading spirits in the national legisla
ture. The position to which ho
just been elevated has naturally at
tracted towards him the eyes of the
whole country, for there is no disguis
ing the fact that upon his acts depend
to a great extent the peace, and, it may
be, the perpetuity of the republic.—
Colonel Pickens is a man of no ordin
ary ability, and no one has ever ques
tioned his courage or resolution. He
was a particular favorite of Calhoun,
and enjoyed the confidence and per
sonal friendship of South Carolina's
greatest son. He was among the most
ardent advocates of nullification, and
it is almost needless to say that he is
at present an uncompromising States
rights man. An anecdote is related
him as having occurred during the
nullification excitement, winch, as it is
particularly illustrative of his charac
ter, deserves to be told here. At a
meeting the remark was made that the
occasion was one 1hat might excite
fears and apprehension, when Colonel
Pickens is alleged to have replied as
Fear! fear! Mr. President, I was
born insensible to fear.
Such is one of the traits in the char
acter of tho man who has been elected
at tho present critical juncture to con
trol for good or ill the destinies of
Tho name of Pickens is one of the
most celebrated in the Revolutionary
history of our country. General Pick
ens, the grandfather of the subject of
the present sketch, rendered Aiosg ef
ficient service in the war of Indepen
dence. He commanded at the impor
tant battle of Cowpens—a battle which
iike that of Trenton, is regarded as
the turning point in tho fortune ol theissued
conflict, and both of which were fought
about the same time. No purer or
more disinterested patriot lived than
General Pickens, and none deserved
better of his country. No personal
sacrifice appeared too great for him,
and when Congress offered to pay thetheir
expenses he had incurred in the cause
of his country he refused to accept
thing in the wav of compensation
or otherwise. Col. Pickens, the father
ot the present Governor of South
Carolina, had a command in the warlicense.
iM ISl2, but was never engaged iu ac
"VVe have stated that Col. Pickens
represented for a period of ten years
his native Stato in the national legisla
ture but he has occupied other exalt
ed public positions of confidence and
trust. President Polk tendered him
the post of Minister to St. Jamee,
which he declined and he also de
clined an appointment from President
Tyler as Minister to the French Court.
He accepted, however, the important
post of Minister to the Court of St.
Petersburg, where his courteous, irank
and manly bearing won him the esteem
and respect of every om.

So Tom went to St. Petersburg, an!
he was the head man at the door on all.
state occasions, and acquitted himself
with all the dignity due to his position.1
When Col. Pickens was about to leave
St. Petersburg, he said to his old ser
vant, "Tom I am gomg. through
Germany, and I want to send a courier
with very important dispatches to our
Minister, Mr. Dallas, in London.—*

In conclusion, we may state, that
Col. Pickens is a man of medium
height, of pecnliarly 'prepossessing
marmers, and, as his election at this
particular time proves, is exceedingly
popular in his native state.
