TCPPH, I am not old, I cannot he old, Though three score years and ten Have wasted away, like a tale that,is told, The lives of other men. I am not old, though friends and foes Alike have gono to their graves, And left me alone to my joys or my woes, As a rock in the midst of the waves. I am not old, I cannot be old, Though tottering, wrinkled and gray ; Though my eyes are dim, and my marrow h cold, Call me not old to-day. For early memories round me throng, Old times snd maimers and men, . As I look behind on my journey so lung, Of three score years and ten. I look behind and am onon more young, Buoyant and bruva and bold,. And my heart can nng, as of yore it sung, Before they called me old. I do not see her the old wife there Shriveled nnd haggard and gray, But I look on tier blooming i.n.l soft and fur, As she was ou her wedding day, '., . I do not see you, daughters and sons, In the likeness of women nnd men, But I kiss you now a 1 kisfod you once, My fond little children then. : And, as. my own grandson rio'es on my knee.

Forget thee !. Bid the forest birds Forget their sweetest tune ; Forget thee ! Bid the sea forget To swell beneath the moon J Bid the faint evening flower forget To bring refreshing dew ; Thyself forget thine oWn dear land Its mountains wild nnd blue ; Forget each old familiar face, Each long remembered spot When these things are forgot by thee, Then shalt thou be forgot.

McRae, of Missis! sippi, on boing informed of his nomination for Congress in the Fifth District, by a duly appointed Committee, responded eloquently and appositely, and accepted tbe honor con ferred upon him. As, in his case, a nomi n ttion is equivalent to an eicctioti, we cau. n it but congratulate ourselves that a sound Bud bilinble Southern Rights gentleman hits b?en cliosan to fill the chair Vacated by the doath of the lamented and illustrious Quit man. To have selected any other would have been political sacrilege, to say the least. Tbe following parngrnphs, taken from bis letter of acceptance, contain, it strikes us, sound and unobjectionable Southern senii- mi'iits; We publish them with pleasure, i :.. i. . ii . . iiuu iiivoks tne earnest, intention ot, our readers to the iileas succinctly promulgated by the distinguished .Jlississippian Ex Goveruof MeRan ; S'JJS Your letter is aceomptinied by no pla'f rm of principles n lnpted by (he convention, fur the reason, I Kuppos-.-, that the seutinient of this (iistriot, is so well 'understood, nnd toy own position, for the past ten yenis, Ins been so ueil di lined on the exciiingqiiestion of Federal leawlati'-i! involvinu'the c ins itu tii)tinl rights of .tin Hiuth, that, n i special niiuui:iauioi oi pnueipi'-s uy tne conve.iitiiin was deemed neceary. ., ; It may bu well for me to say, however, that, the carliual priticiplu wit.li myself jtl reference to the pcnvcri of the Ivdeial Q 'V eminent is, that, tiiey must. Iio exorcis.-ti in ali its departments within the strict limita tions of the writti-n charter. That, .t.hnse powers find their origin and ,'imit in she O'llistitution of . the Unit' d .States, that wii limit the Constitution there is no Union, and that Constitutional Guv M tinicut, may be destroyed as well by the consolidation of its powers as by their dissolutio ), as well by the unlimited fedt ration of the States' a by their total separation; and that when the issue is between these two alternatives, grim. lug out of sectional interests, and an irrecon cilable collision between the different social systems of our people, I prefer tho latter.. This position enibrnees the senttmnnt. which I find so well expressed in a resolution of tho primary meeting in Claiborne county, to nppnint delegates to the Urooklmveo c in vention "That we repudiate as erroneous and injurious the notion that our statwuipn shoulrf Know no jN irtlj or ho South, but. on the contrary, that their duty is to know both sections and wrong neither that impartial and ready justice ought, to be the only. rule ; of the Federal Government, and that the State liberties must and shall be preserved, even at the saeritieo of tho Union,", Upon this position all Southern men ought, to unite without distinction of party, mo upon it rney ought to stand' or tali. A e don't suppose the Govornor's ideas will takovery well with the "Union at-any price" gentlemen with those individuals who so dearly love to be kicked, cuffed, spit upon aud threatened, and who could not be induced to stand up for, much less fight for, their rights under toy circumstances ; but we are much mistaken if there is not a party already formed, biding the time tiud the occasion, which will support men avowing similar sentiments all over the South, and compel universal obedience thereto. . iV. 0.

Collie consiuer this is a necessary evil, against which no provision, -win be made, hut all do not consider it such. Some far mers, as we hap'ien to know, provide againsi this time of sea civ by ulaiitiii"' coin for sum mer fe-'d. They often u'e the sotitborn flat co'n, tnanute tbe gr-iuiid well, sow in drills three feet ripari, leaving it so thick it) the drill Ihat no stalk will grow more than fin inch in diameter. In this way they secure sitculeiit. feed for iheir stoi-k from the last of Jii'y to j the midd'e of S-pfeinlvr. The cows keep in good fl,-sh, and the butter nnd oh-ee show! no abatement. This coin answers very well for dry fodder, though tlw difficulty it Vnrinif win preven- us weneiai us on n iai,ei seai,-. The ndviiiilae-e of this coih over ih colli, n-.n noi'tlo in varieties is that moiv of it can be aised on the same ground and 'hn' it jrniv faster. "Plant about the 'mid ,.e of May.

"GOOD NIGHT, GOOD NIGHT, PAPA." These are the words whose music has not. left our ears siuce the gleaming, and now it is midnight. "Good night, darling I God bless you j you will have pleasant dreams, though I toss iu fever, haunted by tbe de mons of care that harrass me through the day. Good night I" The clock on the mantel struck twelve, and no sound was heard in the house save the regular breath ing of those little lungs iu the next room, heard through tbe door ajar. We dropped our pen, folded our arms, nnd sat gaaing on the lazy fire, while the whrtle panorama of a life passed before us, with its many " good nights.'' ItiH a great thing to be rich, but it is rich thing to have a good memory provided that memory bears no unpleasant fruit,-bitter to the taste: and ' our memory curries us back to tunny a pleasant scene to the little arm chair by the fireside ; to the trundle bed at thu foot of the bed; to lhe lawn iu front of the house, and the orchard behind it; to the butter cups, and the new clover, and the chickens and the swallows, and the birds' nests, and the strawberries, and tho many things that at-' tract the wondering eyes of children, to say nothing of the mysteries of the. starry skios, and the weird gloom of the moaning forest, lint, then, there were the " good nights,'' and the littlu prayer, and the downy bed, on winch r-lunib.-r fell ns light iv as a snowy fluke, only w iviii-t, mid such dreams as only visit pevf ei innocence! Tin' household " G tod night I" Somebody, in whose brain its iuumo still lingers, has written his : " Good night ! " A fond, clear voice from the stairs said that it. wu Tommy. " D aid night!" murmurs a little soinetliiti that we call Jenny, that filled a large place in the centre of two pretty little hearts. " Good night !' lisps :i li'ilo fellow itl a plaid riflo dress, who - was named Wiiie about six years ago. "Now Hay me down o sleep, I play the Lord my B"ti! to keep ; If I should die before I wake" and the small bundle in the trundle bed has dropped off to sleep, but the broken prayer may go up sootier than many long petitions that set a great while before it. And so it was " good uighi" u!l Wunnd the homestead; tiud veiysw ct music, t-m in the twilight, nnd very pleasant melod) it makes now as we think of it, for it was not yesterday, nor the day before, but a long time ago, so long that Tommy is Thomas Somebody, Esq., aud has forgotten that ho ever was k? nvl WOIC wllat the L'..,vt - ..J"'rioiH?st of us can never wear but, once, if we try the first pair of boots. Aud so it was good nijju" all around the hi use; and the children had gone through the ivory gjite, always left a little tipir tor them through into the laud ol dreams.' And then tho lover's " good night" and tbe parti iia kiss ! They are ns prodigal of the hours us the spendthrift of his coin, and the minutes depart in golden showers and fall in dying sparks at their feet. " Good night."

MILITARY SLAVERY. A more monstrous infliction of punish- trient than is noticed by the Brighton Guar-! diau, has never been recorded in the history of modern civilization j and it is not sur prising that tbe police of England should receive notice of two hundred aud fifty de sertions from tbe army in one day. The report of the punishment inflicted ought to cause every man of sensibility to quit the service disgraced by such brutal outrages of humanity. Ilere is the story : A private of the Thirty-fifth Roval Sus sex Regiment, having been found guilty by a district court martial of stealing a live sbilliug piece belonging to private Dough erty, of the same corps, was sentenced to receive fifty lashes, and to be imprisoned eighty-four days with hard labor. The pun lshmcnt of flogging was inflicted ou Satur day at Chatham, and was very severe, lhe cat having nine thongs to it, thereby L'ivinc tour hundred and hity stripes on the man V back.
