Lizzir Simmons .—This inagniflcent floating

the first time, on Saturday lust. The Lizzie,

II. Kirk was in command, nnd the elegantly
arranged office was rendered thrice beautiful
by the smiling face of our old friend Capt.

It ought not to be forgotten that we have n

its members as well as llic.coiumunity at large.
Though this Institution is yet in its infancy, wc
areliappy to say it is exerting a most beneficial
intliionee upon the minds of those who enjoy
the glorious fruits of its existence.
The Inst meeling of the Lyceum was one of
thc most profound interest. The lecture of
.lohn MeEuery, Esq . was upon English History,
and was as rich in thought as it was iu elegance
of expression. His eulogy upon the death of
Charles the First was quite as graceful and
i beautiful as it was just.
| At the conclusion of the lecture an animated

are the losers, for all who do attend acknowl

can produce a man who is more competent to
discharge the duties of the office, is perfectly
ridiculous and absurd. Fanatic bigots may
harp on in this strain, but sensible and just
men will always give honor "to whom honor is

editors who arc perpetually railing agaiust Sli
delTs dishonesty, unfaithfulness to the interests
of the South, and desertion of principles, tô
prove these base charges. Slidell seems to be
the terror of the would-be-somebody politicians
of the age. The mere mention of his nam«
throws these sanguinary individuals into a stafi
of political dilapidatioiHfrom which effect they
barely recover. Self-important editors oppose
him because he will not buy them, while in
fact they are not worth buying. Not being
able to receive any aid politically or pecunia
rily from him, these miserable parasites gloat
over their bitler morsel of denunciation, until
silence ceases to be a'virtue.

should be elected to the Présidenoy in 18G0.
Mr. Clemens, of Virginia, complained of the

to do without his^vote,- otherwise he would fight

An irregular debate then followed.
Mr. Simuis, of Kentucky, said that Browir's
