Tim Augusta Dispatch snys that
iho Bank ol' Fulton has just published
a statement of its condition in accor
dance with the requisition of the Gov
ernor. It makes a good showing, and
is evidently winning its way to popu-.
lar favor.
There is a maiden lady in Conneti-
cut who is so modest, that she turned
away her washerwoman because she
put her clothes in the same tub with
those of a young man.
General Houston, now in his G5th
year, has signified his intention to re
tire from public life on the 5th of March

sive lands Galveston Bay, whither

A noble motto for the young high
rr !X,:ver look down. Aim high.
If you cannot reach the stars, you can
have the satisfaction of drawing near
.ihem. Ho who stands on an eleva
.ted position is sure to catch the first
rays of a glorious sun. lie who is al
ways stepping up, will first catch the
favors and blessings of heaven as they
descend. There is no object on which
we gaze that gives us so much pleas
ure as the upward and continue.'l pro
gress of moral culture and robust vir
tue of the young. When the chains
.of sloth arc broken, the vision is clear,
the heart buoyant, mid the all'cetions
and purposes strong, higher and still
higher objects will bo gained, nobler
purposes achieved, and a sublime ele
vation attained that will thrill with
joy future generations as they march
.on in the same glorious path.
WllKRK IS l'lTNAM CoiINTV. TilC
ookvillo Times published in Tut nam
county snys: "Ever sineo we have
been a citizen of Putnam county we
have been under tho impression that
vu were in the fourth Congressional
District, and should, no doubt, have
remained under that delusion had it
not been that in looking over the new
Code, we saw that it belonged to the
second district. Being a little sur
prised at this, we looked again, and
found in another section it still be
longed to the old fourth.
Now, wo would like to know where
Putnam is. Can any ol our law ma
kers who said iiiiun to the reading of
the new Code, tell us? The time is
approaching when another battle is to
be fought; and as we. are a kind of a
HOH-couiinissioned officer, wo would
like to know under what regiment we
are to fight. A little light, gentlemen
if you please."
S-ror that iiov ! A cigar in his
mouth, a swagger in his walk, impu
dence in his face, a carc-for-nothing-uess
in his manner. Judging from his
demeanor he is older than his father,
wiser than his teacher, more honored
than the magistrate of our town.
.Stop him, ere tobaco shatters his
nerves, cru his pride ruins his charac
ter, the "lounger masters the man,"
ere good ambition and manly strength
gives away to low pursuits and bru
tish aims. Stop till such boys! They
are legion; the disgrace of their fam
ilies, the disgraco of their towns, the
sad and solemn reproach of them
selves. Alexander Robinson, who was ar
rested in Philadelphia, a short time
ago, on a charge of rape in Delaware,
having induced a young girl to leave
Jicr- home on the pretence that her
brother, was sick, and then committed
violence upon her, has been tried and
convicted of the outrage, and senten
ced to be hung, it being a capital of
fence in Delaware.
Till: DANCING.
It has been many a day since, we
read a more graphic and glorious uc
count of modern dancing, than that
which follows. We find it Hunting
"around Ioobo" upon the tide of news
paper literature, and copy it that the
uuthor may find it again:
"Look! look!" said a half dozen lady
voices one pretty night, as wc nt lean
ing against the outside of the ball
room. We did look alas! for our
poor modesty, we ought not to have
done no. "If my children were among
them, I'd whip them well for it. Ye,
if they were full grown, I'd give them
the hickory." Ho said tho wife of one
of our princes, as she turned away in
otter disgust.
' Doctor, let me describe a little if
the public may look, certainly it may
read, though it run. A group o f splen
did ones is on the floor, and lovingly
H
mated. The gents encircle their part
ners, waists with one arm. Tho la
dies mid gentlemen stand closely face
to face. The gents arc very erect,
and lean a little back. The ladies
lean a little forward. (Music.) Now
all wheel and whirl, circle and curl.
Feet and heels of gents go rip rap, rip
rap-rip. Ladies, feet go tipily-tip, tip-ity-tip-tip.
Then all go rippity, clippi
ty, tippity, bippity, skippity, hoppity,
juinpity, bumpity, thump. Ladies fly
off by centrifugal momentum. Gents
pull ladies bard and close. They reel,
swing, slide, .sling, look tender, look
silly, look dizzy. Feet fly, tresses fly,
hoops fly, dresses fly, all fly, It looks
tuggily, huggily, pullity, sipieezity,
pressity, rubbity, rip. The men look
like a cross between steelyards and
"limber jacks," beetles and jointed X's.
The maidens tuck down their chins
very low, or raise them exceedingly
high. iSomo smile, some grin, some
giggle, some frown, some pout, some
sneer, and all sweat freely. Ladies'
laces are brought against those of the
men, or into their bosoms, breast to
bri list, uuse against nose, and toes
against toes. jN'ow ihey go again,
making a sound like Gcorgeyporgcy,
ecrey-peerey, ridey-pidey, caochey
poachey. 'This dance is not much, but the ex
tras are glorious." It' men were wo
men, there would bo no such dancing.
But they ore only men, and so the
thing goes mi by tivmtin'x loir of it.
When a boy, we used to visit these
Dutch dances, and trip the whirling
beer barrels, as tlcy passed our feet,
and then run for dear life. We still
feel the instinct of tripping in our toes.
A secular writer says: "There is no
established standard of propriety
about this ma'tcr. If I were a lady, l
might object to these dances; but, be
ing a man, I do not. Wo certainly
ought to be satisfied, if I hey arc.''

Tin: Moi nt Vr.nxo.s IVuriMsi:. The
ladies who have exerted ihenisulves m
patriotically and assidotisly to pur
chase Mount Vernon und donate the
yrave of Washington lo his country
ini. ii have paid iSlS.OdO, and have yd
to collect l'.'5,0(0. Touid in the ac
cninidi.shnient of ihii object, Mr.
Ceoi'.'o Melius ihc iiiaiKij;cr of the
Louisville Tht utrr, has originated a
vnlualle suggestion which if carried
out, will materially ns'i.'.t lh fumls.
He propone that, on the 1U of Tchru
ary next, the anniversary of tl.e hiith
of WaMiinpton, every mafias'T in the
country shall jrivc the entire, receipts
of the evening's ptrfonnaucri to the

managers making no charge for rent
or any other incidental expense. If
this should be generally carried out, it
would undoubtedly raise the required
sum, and we know of no more popu
lar way that can he suggested. The
drama is the people's amusement, and j
its power is based upon tho elfeots of
sympathy, and, as Guizot nptly re
marks, I 'or the proper development of
those ell'ects, a crowd, must be assem
bled; these ideas which would pass
languidly from one man to another,
traverse the serried ranks of a multi
tude with the rapidity of lightning,
and it is only when large, masses of
men are collected together that we
observe tho action of that moral elet
tricity which the dramatic poet calls
into such powerful operation. Acting :
upon this theory, w hat wonderful of-
fects might he expected from a nation-
al ellort such as, Mr. Melius suggests,
when it is known that from Maine to
Mexico, from tho Atlantic to tho Pa-j
citie, the people everywhere in their j
urgi.st buildings devoted to drama! le
poetry have deteruiined to express
tin ir gratitude to the memory of that
great man, v. ho, by the blessing of
Heaven, guided our revolutionary
struggle to a glorious termination and
left us in his life ami conversation the
model upon which every freeman
should strive to build bis own charac
ter and direct his patriotism.
The Nashville Banner says: "We
have a re.'
muse .
from the press on this subject, und
should it meet the approval of th";
Begeiils of the Mount. Vernon Assoei- j
