The boys were playing some old game beneath ' the same old tree ; 1 I have forgot the name just now you've played , the same with me On that same spot; 'twas played with knives, by ' " throwing so and so ; The loser had a task to do there, twenty years ago. The liver's running just as still j the willows on its side Are larger than they were; Tom, the stream ap pears less wide But the grape vine swing" is ruined now, where once we played the beau, And, swung our sweethearts pretty girls just twenty years ago.

Oh, in this mocking world, too i fast . The doubting fiend o'ertakes our joutli ! Better be cheated to the last Than lose the blessed hope of truth.

This unfortunate young lady who, many years ago, was enticed from her piternal home in Jtnirland, and, with her mother, emi crated to Salt Lake, leaves Washington this afternoon, to lake the steamer at JNaw xo"k for Liverpool. ' So lonjj ago as when 1 resi dent Buchanan was our Minister at the Court of St, Jame, application for ber rescue was made to him by the Jiuglish authorities; but such was. tlia then isolated state ol the Alor toons, and tbeir hostility to the civil power of the United Slates, that her recovery was a matter of great doubt, and an attempt would give J3rigliH.ni Young and bis satel lites an opportunity of concealing ber flora future search.- When our army entered the Valley of Salt Lake, accompanied by the duly appointed civil authorities, the latter were instructed to seek out and restore her to her lather. ' Judge EckleS, on bis late return from Utah, brought ber with b in, followed by ber moth er, with' the purpose, it is believed, of seizing an. opportunity of again abducting her daughter, aud returning with her to Salt Lake Citv..

THE SUSAN'S TRIP. . , ,,) The N. 0. Delta announces that Lieut. White, of the revenue service, who was taken off by.Capt., Maury on the schooner Susan, has arrived in that city. He gives,' says the Delta, an interesting account of the Nicara gua emigrants on board the Susan. The tollowing is o condensed account of Lieut, White's visit. After Capt. Maury bad given the officers the slip, the Delta says :. lie. (Lieut. White) told Cuptam Maurv that be should order the Vessel to come to anchor. Maury replied laughingly, "You can order, Lieutenant, but-your order will not De obeved. ' . . A vessel was- visible on the starboard quarter, which he Rupposed was one of the fleet, but which Captain IVaury said was the outtcr; and remarked facetiously that the d u cutter stuck to them like a leech, and seemed bound to follow them." . ; i Morning found them scudding before the norther, with a goodly number of sca-sick men lying around the decks. The old schoon er! which Mr. White informs us was at one time condemned, groaning and bent in the heavy sea, but Maury was in for a quick trip and was determined to make her do her best. ' Mr. White states that he was treated in the kindest manner possible, and was offered a pruning hook and plow, if be would join his fortunes with theirs, but that he politely de clined, though he was ofopiuion that a more resolute and determined set ot officers and men could nut have boen picked out to be sent upon an expedition to Nicaragua They all stated that tLey should resist to the death any attempt mado by any foreign ves sel to take tli fin, The officers spent their time reading and indulging in champagne; a Dumber of bas kets of the latter beiug stowed away under the berths. And while sitting around the social board, many good yarns were spun, Muury always coining in with the best pre senting a striking appearance with uis blue flannel oants, red shirt, cap, and high topped boots. Maury, who is as thorough a ' sailor as ever placed his toot on the deck of a vts sel, related an anecdote illustrative of bis dead reckoning sailing, which many of hie friends will no doubt recognize. Uuriug the Cuban excitement, and just at the lime that Crittenden and others had been shot at Havana, a crew of a shipwrecked Spanish brig were taken to Mobile, and the Spanish Consul fearing for their lives, engaged Maury to take they to Havana. Starting with his little schooner he ran down and made the headlands of Cuba, and went into Havana by guess. " Going abroad of one of our men-of-war, whi?h was lying in the port, the Commander a.sked him if his chronome ter was all right; Maury laughed and said he had not a single instrument on board. 'How did you Come down, Cupt. Maury ?" inquired the Commander.' "Steered for it, sir,'nud, made it," replied Maury. "Ah ! but," replied his questioner, "now do vou expect to return?" "Well, the fact of it is, said Maury, in Ins peculiar way, "we laid in a pretty good stock of champagne before wo started, and as each battle was finished (and it was not long between drinks I assure you,) 1 threw it over the stern, auu am going to sail back by the bottles. The commander eyed him pretty closely and set him dortn for a fast boy. Some weeks afterwards, it is told of the commander, that when out in the gulf he spied something floating on the water, and calling bis quar termaster, took the spy-glass and bore down on it. Seeing that it was a bottle, lio said to the lieutenant on watch, "There is Borne of Capt. Maury's longitude." Mr. Into says that the men are very much crowded, and wo ' might well expect such to be the case, when wo come to think of two hundred aud twenty men, besides the crew, upon the vessel of about eighty tons. There was not the least sign of dissatisfaction when Mr. White left, and he describes them dancing on the deck of the vessel in the heavy swell to the musio of a fiddle, the performer sitting upon the capstan, and call- iig out the figures with as much earnestness as if he were seated upon the platform of the Odd Fellows' . Hall, It was the intention of Captain Maury to put- .Mr. , White upon the hrst homeward bound vessel,, and though they saw several before they met the Oregon, they were all too far to windward. , The sea was very rough when the transfer was made, and it proved to be rather a dangerous undertaking. The swell was so great that, after the yawl Was cast off from the Sus-an, the .Lieutenant could 6nlv tret a elimpse of her now and then. The last glimpse he got of her, he saw the men still dancing, and Cuptam Maury stan ding on the after-deck, waving in his hand the Nicaraguan flag. '' Amv, the negro woman of Samuel : G.

Whenever an article appears in the Ava lanche upon the subject ot banking, the bankers turn up their sneering noses nd, with an air of lordly disdain, ejaculate ' That subject is stale threadbare exhaust ed." It may be a very disagreeable and un interesting tbeme to the mushroom aristocrat, and to the nabob who has amassed a large fortune by a dishonest system of espionage, but it is one of vital and essential magnitude to the hard-fisted laborer, who has so often been fiVec-d out ot Ins hard earnings bv these bean logs sharks. There is not a me chanic iu Memphis who has not been cheat ed and defrauded out of his hard earnings by these swindling rag-shops, called banks; and this class will never grow weary in read ing and supporting the paper that is striving to protect their labor from the pillage of the plunderers. The hard listed yeoman of the hills and hollows, who whistles as he hoes corn, and sings as he mauls rails, has often been the dupe of the designing and unprin cipled money-scriveners, and, therefore, does not regard the bank question as " stale, thread'-bare or exhausted, "' So far as this newspaper is concerned, they shall have for ilie future, as they have heretofore, the truth, however unpalatable to monopoly. The evident tendency of banking is to " make the rich richer and Die poor poorer; but the discussion of so grave a subject is not a franchise exclusively lor the rich, nor is an infringement of this aristocratic prerogative by the poor barbarians a crime that deserves death by hre and faggot. ; We are opposed to all banks from princi ple. We care not a fig for any particular institution. We have no wish to pull down any specific bank and to build on its dis honored ruins another. We do not desire to drive away the present swarm of fat and satiated flies that a more hungry and rapa cious brood may take their place. We ob serve that a few papers and politicians are opposing specific banks and bankers, without ruference to principle. They exhibit an amnz ug amount of pot-va'or in hunting lown starveling, unfledged new banks of mall capital, s'ruggling into life. This, we nesuine, is prompted by the great banks; for, when they are asking new charters, they are industrious in propagating the notion that all the villainy of banking is with the small institutions, and all the virtue with themselves, and manage to keep their little dogs. Tray, Blanche and Sweet heart in constant yelp afier the small banks them selves all the while enj ying a gieatdeal of composure, and attr loiing marked veuera tion. .-.-.,, ii . ' '',- - - - We have no defense to ofl'er for the small banks ; but' we ennuot admire that valor which shuts its eyes to the delinquencies of powerful corporal ions, to assail, traduce aud hunt down weak and lowly concerns, a dozen of winch could not do,, together, if purposely bent on it, one-lulf the harm that is constantly perpetrated by a single one of the great bauks, to whose iniquities many gallant people ale so blind and amiably kind. While pursuing this poor, lean, wenk, small ginie, we shall strike at the big fish which ate so anxious to eat up the little ones. "The Greeks are at our door;" and since an effort is being made to show to the world how littU banks would act, we shall occasionally show bow big banks do net. While upon the subject of banking, an idea occurs to us which we will hereafter expre-8. It is in lagnrd to taxation. We have not seen the law, but it is a well known fact that banks are not taxed as other prop erty. They i re, iu the first place, granted exclusive privileges upou the subject of tax ation. We trust the next Legislature will blot from the statute books such an odious distinction and increase four-fold the taxation upon the banking capital of the State. We go for equally in taxation. Moneyed corpo rations should be taxed at the same rate that i e ; your cows, horses, sneep, nogs, iarunng utensils, beds, bedding and wearing appaiei are taxed, banks have no souls, they can't work the roads, nor do military duty, but they do control your political and domestic afl'airs and this by the favoritism of Gov ernment, And we' think that they should pay for it, as you, reader, are made to pay for every falling drop of your sweat; for your hardened hands ; for every clod of earth in your fields ; for the brick, mortar, wood and stOne in your houses; for the bay and straw in your barns ; for the meat, flour, potatoes and turnips in your kitchens and cellars; for the tea, coffee, milk and cream you drink; for every hour you sleep; for every stroka of labor you strike; for the chairs, tables, stands, wares, carpets and all furniture in your path rs and chambers; for the money with which you build theohurch es in which you worship with which you pay for the very Bible that points you to Whom you should pray ai nigui, auu reiuru ihanks in the morning nay, for the very snrouds and coffins in which you wrap and deposit your deceased brother, sister, child, lathe-, mother or wife! ' , For a'l these, and all else you own or owe. in some direct or indi.ect way, you pay taxes.

The following resolutions have been unani mously adopted by both houses of the Ar kansas Legislature : Resolved, by the General Assembly of th State of Arkansas, That the people of Ar kansas have beard, with profound regret, of the death of the hero aud statesman, John Anthony Quitman. Though tbe State of Mississippi claimed him as ber own, bis name end fame are tbe common property of tbe nation whose inter ests he ably defended, and whose flag he proudly bore on many a well contested held, and carried in triumph through the Belea gate into tho City of Mexico while his memory is cherished bv all tbe people of the South, whose gallant champion he was. In every station he filled as legislator, judge, soldier and statesman, he adorned and illustrated it by his surpassing abilities and spotless character. In the field, iu the forum, or on the bench, his bearing was that of a gallant gentleman, his aims were always just and his was an integrity for which the universe held no bribe. His clear and far-sighted mind early saw tbe importance of tbe acquisition of Cuba and the spread of Democratic principles over our neighboring territory. To this end he labored, and had he lived, this important step would have been sooner and honorably takeu. An upholder and exponent of the doctrine of State rights, he Dever wavered for a mo ment in their defense; and was their firm and consistent advocate. In his death, on the eve of a momentous struggle, tbe South lost a man whom she could illy spare. Resolved, That the General assembly of the State of Arkansas, in common with the people of the South, mourn the death of one whose brilliant mind and unblemished char acter won for him the proud title of the Chevalier Bayard of tbe South; without fear and without reproach. Betolued, That these resolutions be entered on the journals as a testimony of respect for a great man, whom all loved and honored, and that copies of tbe same be transmitted, bv the Governor qf tbe State, to tbe widow ot General Quitman, and to tbe Governor of Mississippi. ' Resolved, further. That tho members of this Geueral Assembly wear crape on the left arm for thirty days as a testimony of grief for the loss to the nation ot beocrai joun & Quitman.

Clerk of ths House of Representatives, A DEPLORABLE AFFAIR. We learned the particulars of an affair, says the Nashville L niou, which has not only involved a worthy family in the deepest dis tress, but has created an intense excitement in DeKalb county. Thursday Mr. Henry Frazer, residiug seven miles fiom Sinitbville, in DeKalb county, came to this city in search of a daughter fifteen years old, who had been abducted by a free negro, who has eb'ped with her, with ths iuteution of mar rying or perhaps prostituting her. But after diligent search, aided by tho police, be could bear nothing of them, and under the impression that they had attempted to make their way across the country through Ken tucky to Ohio, or some other free State, he vesterdav. with a heavy heart, set out to rjtrace his steps, in the hope that ho might learn something in Deivalb county in rela tion to the course tbey have taken. It appears that Mr. Fraser hired the negro, who is known by the name of Jack sou lluut, alius Hilliard, about tbe first of the present year, to work on his farm, in which opacity he has coutinued in F rater's employ, and during tbe time has in some way won the affection; of Miss Harriet Frazer, a girl of fifteen years of ago ; yet she managed to conceal the fact from her parents- Hunt's mother is a white woman, though he is a dark mulatto. It is said that this woman hinted to a neighbor of Frazor a month or bo ago that her son inteuded to elope with Miss Frazer, though when this report reached the ears of the youug lady's parents they seemed to have regarded it as an idle boast. They had the utmost confi dence in their daughter, and could not be lieve tnat she would so degrade herself as to make a negro ber equal in this manner. The negro is represented as an ignorant fnllnw with far less "shrewdness than is usually possessed by a wulattto, aud Mr. Frazer thinks his mother played a prominent part in this disgraceful affair. If so, she ought to be dealt with in a very summary manner. . i - -Mr. Frazer is represented to us by gentle men of DeKalb oounty as a man of respect ability and wealthand he feels keenly the disgrace his imprudent daughter has brought upon uis tamiiy. - - i The father, in his advertisement for the arrest of the parties, thus describes them : Said , boy is about a feet 11) mono ingn, dark mulatto color,, spare made, weighs about 140 or 150 pounds, good countenance, steps short in walking, aged about 20 years; had on when last seeu by me new Diaca clothing and probably a bluish hat. Said bov is accompanied by a white girl, my daughter, whom he abducted, and is running awaj Wltu; and It IS suppose", uiey are iminiT to make their way to a free State. M daughter, named Harriot, is about 15 years old, well grown for that age, weighs ahnnt 130 or 140 pounds, fair complexion, slightly freckled, rather coarse featured, hazel eves, dark or brown hair, can read nrint weil. and writing poorly ; ' had on when she left, a black shawl with a flower in one corner of it, and a home-made cotton dress ; and with her, in a home-made Batch el, two worsted dresses alike.

Sih : 1 herewith mail to you a copy of your "Whig" of September 3d, seat to a Mr. J. G. Smith, at Coila P. O., this oouuty, and from tbe appearance of the address, it is pre sumed it was sent direct from your office. The P. M. knowing no Smith of that chris tened name io the habit of receiving hi uiHilt through that office, carried the paper in li's pocket for several days, inquiring throughout tbe country if such a Smith lived in it, and failing to find the one addressed, he handed me tbe paper with the request that alter persual I ould return it to you with the cause of its return. And in justice to Mr. Farmer, the P. M I will say that in his search for the owner, he was Lot actuated with the motive merely to give it to him, but io ascertain if be suUurilwd for it, in order that lie might be held up, if such were true. aud receive that scorn and contempt from all good citizens which a sub-tori ptiou to such an infamous sheet as vours would-ineiit. It may perhaps be news to you, to bear that public opinion lieie rebate's a subscriber lu such a sheet as but little less base and treach erous to tbe ttouth than the Editor thereof is to the constitution of our common coun ts . Your subscriber if such there be, in this county, has merited the condemnation of eveiy high minded citizen, for wishing to axstst you in your hellish undertaking, and if he could be discovered, they would soon nnd fur him a rail to ride or a coat of tar and feathers for him to wear. The Legis'atuix of our State has interposed the sovereign arm of tbe law against the in troduction and circulation of any book or paper of a scdiout character, or advocating abolitionism ; and our P. jI.'s are men of loo much integrity to suffer such au abolition paper as th.a to pass through their office without reporting them. What a contrast is here presented! Whilst tbe Democratic journals of the North are received and circulated with pleasure, your Black Republican sheets are prohibited, as would be the introduction oi an iufectious plague. 1 see from an editorial in this copy of your paper that you are advocating a union of all the repositions at the North uguiust the Na tional Democracy. Have you ever had a serious thought upou the consequences of the overthrow of that constitutional party, if its administration be changed for that of the Black Republicans I Do you suppose that the South is so lost 'o all honor; so lost to all independence and self-respect ss to tamely submit to the rule of your infamous paity I If so, banish from your boson such an illusion, for surely as you live it would prove an illusion. The South is awake to tho true motives and intentious of your party. She is aware that the numerous aggressions of the North upou her rights in tbe last thirty years are but lh prelude to one great, desperate strug gle to wiest from her that "peculiar institu tion," which has been transmitted to her sa cied keeping, and which has become a part of her existence with which she will pros oer and grow powerful among I he mightiest nations of earth, but without which she would skik into oblivion. A submission to further aggression upon ber rights, even your fanatics in their frenzy should not ex pect of her. Should the Black Republican be plaotd in power and inaugurate the policy they have alway advocated, tbe days ol the Re public would indeed be numbered, and I for one would lejoice. Your party in its fanat icism has goue far enough; remember, "there is a point beyond which forbearance ceases to bo a virtue." Or else tbe time may soon c nie when the South, writhing under the wrongs repeatedly inflicted upon her by the North, will have to appeal to the God of Battles for rediess. And, if such shall ever be the case, we of Miisippi, conscious that wa have a holy otuse a cause sanctioned by the God of our lather and by pur reli gion, with tbi talsmantio word "We know our ngbts. And knowing dare defend them"-r-11 1 ver be found where duty call the braN so loi'g es we can yield the sword or handle the rifle. Your party has ever harped on the aggrea- sious of the South, aod this in tbe face of the faa, that there has never been on a gression of that character , whilst those of your section upon the South have been innu merable. Wbv is it that you distort history so, if it be not to deceive the people, and upon that deception to appeal to their prejudices! I say again, your party has gone far enough. U is time that it should oease its egregiousiy aggravated falsehoods bass lie 1 will call thm for such tbey are-aoout we norrora of slavery a it exist here. Have wme UttU regard for the truth. And if it be for to doing you will go unrewarded on earth, you surely will receive jonr reward in the world hereafter. Heaves ha no place for a Black Republican. , - Your, fc.v, , S.
