MrG kiif.i:, (7-intlcmen: I have received your let ter of the 31st ult., accompanied with handsome and handsomely inscribed Sil ver Cup, as a present from n portion of the citizens of Franklin County. Allow mo to return to you, and through you to the people of Franklin, my heartfelt ac knowledgement? (or the high compliment which you nnd they have seen proper to pay me. The services (if any) which 1 have rendered, were undertaken under the conviction that the consummation o f th object would be nothing more than a dis charge of a duty to myself and the people amongst whom I have the pleasure and good fortune to live, nnd a knowledge that ' my course met the approbation of my fellow-citizens, was to mo full and satisfac tory compensation for nil that I have done ox will do. In reviewing the result of the undertaking to remove the free negroes from our midst, wc must not be unniind ful of the groat aid afforded us by the Mayor and Aldermen of the town of Win chester, and by the County Court of Franklin County. It was in a meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen that the project originated. There the matter was first discussed and set on foot that body consisting of nine men thinking and acting as one man no one being "afraid to take upon himself the responsi bility of the measures adopted for the per fection of their purposes ; and then when we come to the County Court, we find that body calmly and dispationatoly in vestigating tho question and standing as they should do, and sustaining us most triumphantly. In our (as I conceive) most laudable undertaking, wo have, at times, met some opposition that opposition has been and still is rapidly wearing away, and all that wc now have to do is to stand firm as we arc prosecuto tho matter with energy Id we may promise ourselves to he, in .'... . - ,cry snort timo, members of a free and ' much relieved community, having the ( yleasant reflection that we were the first who undertook and the first who did re . move free negroes. As to the policy of our course, but a " Irttje reflection is, I think, sufficient to iftUsfy any rational mind. For instance: community is a slave-holding one. ut'nslaves constitute, in the main, the health of our people, and it is to the labor )f tne slave all classes look for the nec essaries and luxuries of life. The free ftigrois of the same race, the same com- ioleiion and the same disnosion of the1 if i - iiave, anu u no omcr dbu consequence j ' could remit, we nil know that when tho THE PUBLISHED WEEKLY, BY VOLUME 1. slave sees ono of tlio some kind and dis position of himself ncting os his own mus ter, that discontent with the slave is the nocessnry and unavoidable result. But more: Wo are all aware that the frco'ne grocs in our County live well, and have a controlling disposition to Undo nnd not labor, nnd wo know further that when there wcro more froo negroes with us it took nmre of everything raised on n farm to answer tlio need of tho fanner, there fore, we are forced to conclude that the slavo was induced, by the free negroes, to steal from his master and his master's neighbor, in which thing tho non slave holder was equal loser with tho slave holder, for the slavfi paid by the free ne gro to bo u thief had'no special or partic ular place or properly in view, but work ed upon tho general idea of stealing where, when, nnd from whomsoever he could. Wc also havo evidences of them seducing away and harboring the slave. Again: I suppose there is no doubt that the Into insurrectionary excitement which prevailed in our own and other slave holding Slates was a consequence of per mitting free negroes to remain within the limits of such States. In ninny instances these movements weru headed by free r.c ;rroes; in others, sustained ar.-.i f-upported by them, of which we have ample testi mony in the action of several counties in this Slate to remove free negroes of oil classes from amongst them. There on other reasons which I might assign in sup port of t'jfi-policy cjf cur course, but it is unnecessary to do so here. I hope o:ir rserct f.trialaturo will give U5; a in'' re rid and a more Available law, fur 1 1 ; 3 removal of freo nevrorf, thon we now have. We should pri.vs them to ii give them no rest till they do do it, and my prayer is that, in a slnrt time, Tennes see may be able t.) say she has not a free iK'-ro of any tdass within her holders Fear fid that I am becoming tedious, I will close by accepting, uni as.' urirg you that I highly appreciate the Silver Cup with which it has been yours, and n por tion of tho people of this County's pleas ure to compliment mc. 1 am, gentlemen, Y'ur obediei.l servant, P.

Grace Ci reonwood, ( Mrs. Lippincottj ' in an address to mothers, in thu last num ber of Vic Little Pilgrim, thus writes : "Since 1 last addressed you, another year has passed over us a peaceful and fortunate year to most of you, I trust, yet doubtless bringing to the happiest hearts and homes something of chanre and sorrow. To me it has brought the most profound and sweet, the most sol emn and sacred happiness of woman hood for within this rear I have been joined to the 'great and nolle army ofj mothers.' I am now one of you. Oh,j if there is a time when woman may feel j that she, like Mary of old, is blessed among women,' it is when she folds in her arms her firstborn child feels the! touch of its tondcj: little hands thrill en her heartstrings feels upon her check the first soft breath of a life immortal sees faintly twinkling in the misty depths of sleepy little eyes a love that shall yet brighten tho world for her. This joy un-; speakahle, this holy triumph of mr.'.erni- ty, is Heaven's abundant compensation for all that is suffered by woman for all ! that is denied to her. With existence j renewed and freshened by the inflowing of this pure rill from tho divine fountain of life with my heart made more tender and loving by the sweet, mysterious in fluences by which babyhood, mighty in. helplessness, and, without speech, most eloquent, conic3 to us I feel like con secrating myself anew to tho service of such as Jesus took in his arms and bless ed and of you, whom maternity make.' kin to her once elected to the highest joy and deepest anguish cf mortality, her whom he mojt love I and most tenderly remembered in his last hour.

Xnturo never did hetrty the tou! luut loved her; mi nature tells nien end wo men to marry. Jut as the young man is entering upon life just as Le comes to' independence and man's es'aie, ju.t ai the crisis of his being is to Le solved, and it is to be fe?n whether he dceido with the rood, and tho great, and the true, or who' lit-r he sink ami L lost forever rna'rimouy gives him ballast and the right impulse, War with natur?, and she take? n sure revenge. Tell a young man not to have nn attachment that is virtuous, and he will have one that ii vicious. Virtuous love, the honest love of a man for the woman ho is about to marry, give him an anchor for his heart, something pure and beautiful foi which to labor and live. And the woman, what a purple light it shed upon her path ; it makci life for her no day dream, no idle hour, no paint? I shadow, no passing show, but something real, earnest, worthy of her heart and head. But most cf us ara cowards, and dnrc not think so: wo lack grace; we arc of little faith; our inward, eye is dim and dark. The modem young lady must marry in style; the modem young gentleman marries a fortune. But in the meanwhile the nr! grows into un old maid, and the youth takes chamber? ogles at nursery maids, and become a man nbout town whom it is dangerous to ask into your house, for his business is intrigue, The world might have had a happy couple; instead it gets a woman fretful, nervous, fanciful, and a plague tr all around her. He becomes a sceptic in .; all virtue; a cormptor of the youth of both sexes ; a curse in whatever domestic . circle bo penetrates. Even worse may result. She may be deceived mid mm-die of a broken heart. He may rush from one folly to another; associate only with the vicious nnd de- praved ; bring disgrace anl sorrow on himself and all around, and sink into an early grave. Our great cities show what become of men and women who do not marry. Worldly fathers and mothers advise not to marry till they can afford to support a wife?, and the boys wickedly expend double the amount in low compa- ny. Hence it is, that all wise men (liko Franklin) advocate early marriages, and that all our great men, with rare excep tions, have been men who married young. Wordsworth had only one hundred 'pounds a year when he first married. Lord El don was so poor that he had to go to Clare-market, London, to buy sprats for supper. Coleridge and Southey. wo can't find had any income at nil when they got married. We question whether Luther at any time had more than fifty pounds a year. Uc blast humanity in us very dawn. Fathers, you say you teach your sons prudence, you do nothing of the kind; your worldly-wise and clever sou is already ruined for life. Von will find him at the faro-table an 1 ail free-love cir cles. Your wretched worldly wisdom taught h-ini to avoid tho snare of marrying young, and soon if he is not involved in embarrassments which will last him a t n e lis is- a maze leuow nearness, false, without a fciuglo generous senti ment or manly aim; he has ".'o God, no tn-avi-n in the wide world.'' j A Yaskek Outdone.
