In tbo socond slansa, tbo poet sayi :

When lint tby fiilds wero unfurled to

Tyranny trembled,
Uark clouds of opproision
Cleared in tho dlstsnco and fell on ill

To ssy tho boitof It, this stanza ii buog-
llngly conitructed. Wo preiumo, tbo
poet intended lo say that tyranny trem
blod and fell, upon its knees when the
American flg was for tho. first tlmo un
furled to tho broezej but that he doos lay
so wo very much doubt. Wo wero onco
a young poet, tooj and havo a wierd re
collection of tha misery wo cxporlonced
when our rhymes wore crltlcliod, and the
intonio glow of plttauro that pervaded
our heart when tha editor gave mem a
place in his columns precedod by a word
of pjalie. S 3 now wo will not give to "C"
any of tho misery we havo moro than onoo
txnerlenced ourself : f:r wo aro sure that
practlco will mako him moro perfect than
he is, and that ho will j-ct see his name in

tended roputatlon. Ho was accidentally
killed at Wincheiler In Virginia.
Mr. Patton has beonjlongand favorably
known to the greater part ot our citizens,
having settled in Cairo in the year 1854,
sinoo which limo till his death he was
Intimately identified with our city's wol-
faro and intoreit. During his lifetime,
Mr. Patton hold various poiitfons of trust
and responsibility in our midst, in all of
which bo acquitted hlmiolf with honor
and uprightneii. II o wai employed a

PmLotorum and Poet, Yesterday
morning, Mr. J. 0. McDonald, tho philos
opher and poet, called upon tu ana mo
milled to our coailderatlon two poerai,
both of which bear tho Itnproai of origi
nality and the stamp ol gonlut.
lleforo we give to our roaport innie
tclntlllatloni of ono of tho blgboit mlndi
of the age, we dcilro to tay that Mr. Mo-
Donald It at protont the gueit of tho bt.
Cbarlet hotol, that transient abodo of ajl
the great and good who pan throujb
Cairo, and that hit object in vftlllng us at
this time Is to organize a joint st6Ck com
pany to build a balloon upon a novel plan
of his own. Mr. McDonald hai discov
ered tbat by building a balloon in four
parts, with bowl-shaped fans for rudder;,
and fant of the tame thape at the tldei for
propellers, bo sen cron the Atlantic In
forty-oight hourt. Thlt ho proposes to do
in Cairo, and for that purposo will organ,
Izo a company. We do not with to oh
trude advice upon a gontleman of Mr.
McDonald's ability, but wtu.d suugeit
Col. Phil. Howard ai prosldent of his
proposed company, Mr. D. L. Davis as
secrotary, Mr. tjol. Silver at troaiurer, ana
Mr. Perry Powors ti general managor
Wo would regret to part from theio gen
tlemen, but In the cauio of sclonce would
tearfully content to lcio them, and
they arlio on their '.Immortal journey
would fill their ears with one of Mr
McDonald's pathotle songi
"Up In u balloon, boy,
Up la a Imlloon,
ln'nt It u pretty lglit
Sailing round the moon."
Having thus relerreJ to the grand pro
ject Mr. McDonald hat in hand, wo sow
beg leave to lay befjro our readers the
following evidence of bis genius si a poet.
As we have tail, he it the gueit of the
St. Cbnrlei hotel. Asa matter of courie,
oven a briet habitation In that palace of
good living atlrt tbo poetry in any man.
It arouied Mr. McUanald't muie, and
almost without thought he dashed off the
following gom :
