NELLIE NORMAN. Haw Bluff, Yazoo Riveu. THE LAST DEVIL'S WALK. BY CHARLES DICKEXS. From his brimstone bed at break of day A devil has walking gone . , To trample and char the flowers to death, To infest the air with his pestilent breath, And to cloud the morning sun. And pray how was this devil dressed I Oh! he was cased in an iron vest; His scales were close, nnd rivets true, With never a chink for a spear to get thro'. And over the hill and over the dale, i He walked, and over the plain; . An air-gun, elegant, polish'd and round, i That would kill miles off with never a sound lie. twirled like a harmless enne. -. And over tho laurels of Full-blown Fame, ' And tender shoots of the young Good Name, He stamp'd with his merciless hoof of shame, Aad he left his print on eaoh. 4 . . And backward nnd forward he wriggled his tail t Through rose-trimm'd garden and hly-etrewed ' ' ' vale, ' ''''"'".'', Marking his course by a loathsome trail, ' Like a snail- track over a peach. , He spied a laborer hard at work, ; ' Early at his vocation, . His prominence offered a capital shot ; Oho!" quoth the devil, "he sees me not,'" Soke shouldered bis piece, and 'je aim'd, God wot, - ' ': - ': With terrlMe calculation ! " f He saw young Innocent folks at play, Blameless, beautiful, wise and gay, ' The prospect liked not him. . ," So a vitriol flask from his pouch he drew, ('Twas a devilish deed) and the liquid flew O'er the fair young group whom he left a craw Of monsters scarr'd and grim. , He peered in a house; 'twas a goodly manse, r ; Of time and weather had stood the. chanoe, :, And was still erect and fair, n i u " Aha !" quoth the devil. " the pile looks well, -; But I've fire-works studied for nothing In hell, If I can't find out when a matoh or shell May lead to eombustion there. ' i i . ". A That devil could creep where o other fiend can ; He found an unguarded spot ) ' ; " ' Where he scraped a mine with his diligent hoofi And, his train prepared Vail, pillar and roof, Bl up In the air like sho, ; " ' ' ' '' The breach in the roof is niendod how ; Its whereabouts few oari tell, y But the' devil had done his work that day,, y So ha crawled him back for his master's pay, Which he royally spent in a jovial way,1' : With the lowest devils In hell. " ' ;'( '. ' ' ' ... "; . There are many devils that waik this, world, u .Devils great and devils small, t . (, .;, , ,. ; Devila.with tails and devils without, , , mh . Devils who whisper, devils who shout, ;J tV.-i; I Devils who mystify, devils who teach, .., . But the Calumny Devil as hard to reach, ,,, As the snail who now safe on some distant beech, Is digesting the core of my favorite peach, ll the Shabbiest devil of all! YOUNG MAN ATTACH YOURSELF TO THE ' s " DEMOCRACY. , . It is importan' for every youuj man to stand tiglit in politics as well as other tnat tets. Those who join the Democracy con nei;t themselves with a permanent organiza tion. .The party is co-existent with the foun dat'on of our republican institutions, and throe-quarters of the century has so entwined it in the institutions of our country that its existence is fixed a'd irrevocable so long as our government exists. .It has been opposed by various parties in their turn, some of which have Lad temporary triumphs, but thev tiki' tnatoly fe'l under the couqueiing inatv.h of the invincible democracy. Ihe wars ot ?a nnticiam have beaten against, and have some times almost seemed to engulph it, but ani mated 'by the cen ral principle of justice t all classes and conditions of men, it has ever risen in majesty above the raging billow. It. lias been opposed bv the eloquence or Ulay and , Webster and others of less note, but it lias withstood the assaults of all, and the very last iret of these great statesmen was to confess tueir error and commend the Uemoo racy. We may occasionally bo outnumber ed lor a time, but, triumph will soon follow. We have shaped the instructions of. our country from its foundation, and point with pi tde to our bandnvck, and it is the destiny of the party- to guard, protect and uphold the nation until the last, line of liberty ha; been written upon the record of time. The following trives a historical view of tho oppo-ing parties in this country, from the earliest period to the present time. The Opposition to the Democracy, since die or I gani.ation of the Government, have passed the following laws ; .... ! The " Alien Law, " in 193, giving the President (John Adams) the power to order from the country sny unnaturalized foreigner he might deem a suspicions per&on. , . The ' Sedition Law," passed in 1798, by which any person who wrote or published anything against the President or any of the members Jf Congress, was liable to be heavi ly fined and imprisoned, on conviction in the Lmted stales Courts. An act passed in 1798, extending the term of naturalization of foreitrnera from five to fourteen years. , j They paused the General Bankrupt Law in 181, which enabled such persons who desired to do so to repudiate their old debts. They favored the high tariff of 1842, taxed the fanneis, rnechanics and laboring men, and those engaged in communis, heav ll v. for the U neat ot a tew niaiiutactui'ars in New England, , These ate all the important laws the Op position ever passed, Everv on of thein was repealed in less than tour years pfier their pasteige. The Oppoii ion lo tliel). mocracv was never continual in power bv the people more Irian one term. They never elected but font Presidents, viz: . John Adams, in 1890. John Q. Adams, in 1824. William U. Harrison, in 1840. Zachary Taylor, in 18 i8. ; . . t ; The lollowilli Presiden's were elected by the Demociucy against the .effurls of the Op position : ! Thomas Jefferson, in 1800.- James Madi on, in 1808. James Monroe, in 1810. Andrew Jaoksou, in 1828. Martin Van' Huron, in 1830. James K. Polk, in 1841. ' Franklin Pierce, in 1852. Jatne Buchanate, in 1850, ,,, At the end ot Mr. Buchanan's term in 1801, the Democracy , will have bad the Presidency forty eight years to the Opposi tion's sixteen. The Democrats have had a majority in Congress at least fifty-four years to the Opposition's ten years. The opposition have opposed vainly and ineffectively the following Democratic meas ures . f . . The purchase of -tha Louisiana Territory in, 1802. , ' ' 1 , They opposed the war with England in 1812., Thev were willing the British should search our vessels upon the high seas, and take fixin them, by torce, American seamen. They opposed tho purchase of Frorida in 1819. They opposed the putting down of that ( iinnrerotis and corrupt institution 10 me liberties of our coutitry, a mammoth Nation al Bank. , ......... They opposed the adoption of the Indfr pendent Treasury law of 1841. , . , They opposed, the annexation of Texas in 1844 and '45. , .;; They - opposed the Mexican war in J846 aiid sided with the . enemies of their coun try throutrhout that struggle. s r, they opposed the purchase of California,New Mexico, and Utah, declaring tha', those countiies were not worth anything, and that we had teruiory enough. , ... ,: They opposed ihe putchasa of Arizona in 1854.., ; ... . . i ;. They never admitted a State. . , They never O'ganized a Territory.: , , , They were also against their country in t ine of. war. ,,,, .. ,i . Such are the main exploits of tho opposi tion to the Democracy. . . The Sandu-kv fOhio) llegister tells pretty hard story about a man named Beach, who, after carrvimr a snake in his stomsch for seventeau years, recently got rid of it by starving himself. The snake, uhicb was three feet long, died from hunger, ., , , '"A son of a citizen of New. Bed'ord, who luff thut ritv some ten vears 8f?o' as a sailor in the back Trade, (which vessel was wreck ed) and Was long given up for lost, returned to 'bis lainers.ti.nise recently. ' Hon. Findlay PattcfHOrt, f6rmerly of Penn srlvania, but for the last three years a resi dent of Kansas, is spoken of a. the successor of Got. Denver.' 1 - , J i THERE'S A SIGH IN THE HEART. There's many a sigh in tho heiii t. The lips may discourse the language of gaiety, the fair brow teem with pleasure and mirth, yet there mny be a sigh in the heart, li1.- ueath the attire of fashinuubio life may these words bo applied. Beneath the ves ture of every garment there sumutine swells a sigh from the heart. Reader, do you see that man with all his fine eqi i age, 03 he goes bowing along to one, and wishing good cheer to another r You would not suppose that he was unhappy; why ueed dark clouds arise to darken his horizon t He has every thing thatheait can wish in - the way of money, but, ah I dear reader, that princely niausiou he calls his homo is no home for him. No gentle wife stands wait ing to welcome hi in to his home' no glad smiles, no romping, joyous children climb upon his kuee, and bid htm welcome home again. No 1 instead of a gentle wife greet j lug htm at the door, he enters the parlor, and a lady coldly ud formally ugreets him. A lauy ot tasuion. blie sits reading the last new novel, and but glances at him as ha. takes his accustomed seat at the fireside. Ha is weary with the cares of the world ; is weary with the colduess and preteude ' friendship of earth's fair children ; he sees plaiuly that " all is not gold that, glitters." And while sitting there ho wandered back through the dim vista of years to the home of his childhood : he sees acam th" crack ling fire as it rolls up the wide mouthed ! chimney; he knows that loving hearts were twined arouud his, aad he hears again then kind words as they fall soothingly on his ear. But, as ho contemplates that he has risen iroin a poor, tanner s ooy, and sees the! VJU""l-"uu,u c".iIJJ"lellMn " cr.ld heartlings of fashionable life, he sghs.h'f tllG malerial elements of comfort, pros deeply, thrillingly, mid almost unconsciou-ly. He goes to his daily oilice and meets his ! fashionable friends ; lie wears a smile on his brow: there is joy beaming from his spark ling eye, but down deep in his heart he cov ers his sorrows, so that, nono shall see him only as the rich merchant of street. the leader of fashion, and rhe gay and wit companion. But there's many a sigh escape. from his heart though thu friends knuw i: not. Reader, do you see that prima donna, in all her beauty, as she gathers the rich coquets (hat have fallen at her feet? Do you hear her charming voice as she finishes the last f.tanza, and receives tho cheers of n assem bled multitude; who would imagine there was sorrow there? Who would imagine, to look on her lovely face and beauteous form, there was a sigh in her heart? Yet the enr'ain is hardly closed otter her retreating figure, ere a sigh, which seems to rend the rjery fountain of life, escapes iii an uncou scions ernan, and she exclaims, vanity ! vanity ! Many persons would give thousauds and thousands to be cheered by a multitude as she has been, but, ah ! they litile know that beneath all this glittering parapherna lia beats u sorrowing heart with many a sigh. , Look at that drunkard, as he reels along! the homeward path, and sec the author of many sighs; n . fond, gcutle wife stands! waiting tho return of him who vowed to l love nnd cherish her up tit deah, the final conqueror tiad parted, tliom. Unce she wasj h"ppy iu that love, but now it. is turned toi sorrow. Unce sue stood waiting to hear his getit.lo tootsteps and kind voice, out now how changed Instead of kind words and! loving smiles his smile is a demon's smile,; and his kind words are turned to bitter cur-i ... . . . ses ; and the heart that once wos nappy i knows no more happiness; the heart that once was full of joy now is full of sighs. The world is full of them ; they may bo heard coming across the lowly wave in a dismal dirge. " They're echoed on the eTeniag breeue They're hoard on desert plains ; Iu monrntul voices through the trees We hear them come again." How nic Got A-Call. Innocent poople have often been surprised at public meetings to see with what enthusiasm and unanimity persons scattered in all quarters of an audi ence shout for particular speakers. They regnrsuch manifestations as unmistakable evidence ot the popularity of the person call ed for, At a Republic, ;n meeting in Indiana, tho other day, a speaker named Long, re sponded to a loud call and took the stand ; but a big. strapping fellow persisted in cry ing out, in stentorian voice, ''Long! Long !' This caused a little confusion, but after some diffi. ulty in making himself heard, the Pres ident succeeded in stating that Mr. Long, the gentleman honored by the call, was now addressing them. "Oh, be be d d 1 " replied the fellow; "he's the little skeezicks hat told ine to call for Loner !" , This brought down the bouse. ': i This age should be characterized in history as the age of, foyer-heads I, :' ; 1 Neighbor T had a social pnrty at his house a few evenings since, and the "dear boy,?' Charles, a five year old colt,, was fa vored with permission to be seen in the par lor. "Pa" is somewhat proud of bis boy. and Charles was, of course, elaborately got ten up for so great an occasion. .Among other extras, Uie little fellow s hair wat tieat d to a liberal supply, pf eau de cologne, to his huee graUhYa'.uHi. , As ne entered th parlor, aud made his bow to the ladies and centlemen " Lookee here," said be proudly, "if any of vou smells smell, that's me it'he effect was decided, and Charles,. ha?- inw thus in fone brief sentence delivered an illustrative essay on human Vanity, was the hero of the evening. Prentice wishes thai the individual who invented what was called the paying out machinery for the Niagara and Agame-nnon, would get up a little machine of the sort to be used in the case of every newspaper sub scriber. ' GEORGIA" THERE PIIE AT HER." STANDS, LOOK Georgia lias over twelve hundred tulles of railroad built, and paid for, and yielding to the stockholders more thun an average cf seven percept, yearly dividends. Within the next year, two hundred miles of additional road, completed and equipped, will be in operation. These roads, with but a single exception, are u.aiuly the results of the enterprise, the eucrgy and cjpilul of our own people. Ye have cottoii and wool arid paper facto ries, rolling units, . foundries and ma shops merchant mills marble yiu liine! aold and copper and coal mines all iu ai'Fhu flourishing condition, and remunerating t'ie proprietors by handsome returns ou the cap ital invested. The cotton crop of the present year will bring tweuiyfivc millions of dollars at pres ent prices. The crop of cereals is - w-nth twice that sum the sugar and tobacco crop not bciug included in the account. The state tax is not quite onc-twc'f.h of one per cent. the net income of the state road will be three hundred thousand dollars. The state debt amount:, to about two tuili ions, and a tax of one-fifth of one per cent, would pay it in two years. Oar Banks are solvent our merchants in the best of credit. and the people generally . out of debt, wiili fu'l erops of cotton, corn, on hand. The country is healthy, with the exception the epidemic in Savannah We have six male colleges, anil colleges for the fair sex in almost every village continuing five hun dred inhabitauts, iu the state. Looking to this statement of facts, is there a state in Parity and tucccss, us the great State of iorgia. If then, at this time, she occu pies so proud a position, what will she when all her projected lines of railroad completed when the mines of gold copper aud coal that uow lb deep iu bosom of her mountains, are op-ped, an ;; heir rich deposits brm Ja . to mark-. When instead of but a fourth, us she u-iw h-is ! of her rich lam in mltivnti.i;i, the full InH! of the rich valleys in the -north shad b ar B! golden harvest, and the plains of the sou ' and west shall be white with the kingly sta -' ule. When that, day shall come, G;orgia! will not, only be the empire state of the south, but the empire state of the world. Goryiu Telegraph. m Fatal Effects of Somsamhultsm. The St. Louis Republican of late dale, has the 'o'lowii.g sad story, the feiidlot sleep walk ng: Fiiday evening a farmer named J ihn Urnv, from Indiana, who was removing to some point on the MissotH river with his wit'e. father in law and four children, came in on Ihe Ohio mid Mississippi Railroad. Being ill straightened cireumstanc.es, the family ob tained permission to stop for the night, in a small room on the ferry dock at the foot of Carr street.

A very large and enthusiastic meeting to inaugurate the uiDveiiient has been held, and several thousand dollars already ontributed. There are eighty thousand work ing girls in this city,' who, as a general thing, have no place of resort, where they can re ceive instruction, or derive the pleasure to bs had from good books. Gteat men never swell, it is only three-con' individuals who arc salaried at. the late of two hundred dollais a year, and dine on po tatoes and dried herring, who put, on aiis and flashy waistcoats, swell, puff. blow, and eitdeavor to give themselves a consequential appearance. .

He who is wanting in honor towards curls, will invariably attempt to dodge the grocer, tailor, and butcher.--Faithlessness to the dimity institution is a sure sign of a want of principle, piety, and a good bringing up. ILL-MANNERED CtilD.tE.V. Ilnme-tiuiuing in our country mu-t be deficient in some important, particulars, ji' wc can rely cm the uniform opinions of. traveler from the old world. Our public schools and Sunday-schools uo not. rupplv tho riclicieiicy, and it is possible tha: the greatness of the evils experienced may lead io e!l!-:ieitt niei.sures for their correction. An English lady speaks in a very ilUp-ra ging s-yle of the maimers und training of American children ; ouaness nits the mum to sec how early infantile playfulness and grace are fr ist.. bitten, nnd wither even before buddinsr.

They have benuj;, and receive, calls banquets, make appointments; rivalry and. envy iu their ugliest shape cavly take pos sesion of their seeds. For years I have observed this disease all over the country, in cities where I have seen society. Ahoy; all, it is piinful to cue's :oi-li-,ig at, the hotels and watering places.
