$> o e t r s.
[FOR the southern tribune ]
BT D. POSTELL.
I m sad—there’s still a cloud upon my heart,
That hath long fix'd its sullen shadow" there ;
A melancholy, that will not depart,—
But of existence seems a part, a share.
Oft have I stolen to the surf-beat shore,
And gaz and upon the wild majestic sea ;
Ive watch'd the spangled surges oer and o'er,
Until enchanted with their brilliancy !
I’ve often listen'd to old ocean’s roar,
That seems to sound one grand, eternal bass,
As wave chas'd wave along the sea-wash’d shore,
Till from my mind it did each care erase.
I've seen the full moon rising o’er the wave,
And felt my heart rush out to meet its li<rht ;
Till earth, with all its griefs, it did enslave,
And wrap me in a dream of fond delight.
Oft have I wander'd o’er a sunny isle,
And brush’d the morning's freshest, brightest
And when surrounding nature seem'd to smile,
I’ve snatch'd a fleeting gleam of pleasure too.
And I have wander’d forth as Phmbus rose,
And boldly threw aside the veil of night ;
As the fresh morn its beauties did disclose,
And fill the world with brilliancy of light ;
Then have I follow’d in the thrilling chase,
And rous’d the wild buck from his grassy bed;
Till joy, full joy suffus'd my anxious face,
And dark brow’d sorrow seem’d forever fled.
But all was vain ; that cloud rests darkly yet,
And hangs a veil, a shadow on my joys :
All, all is vain,—thero is some deep regret,
That peace ; that almost even hope destroys

A. TALE OP LIFE.
BV SAMIVEL OF SAVANNAH.
“The blessings of the skies all wait upon her
Health, grace, inimitable beauty wreathed
Round every motion : On her lip the rose
Has left its sweetness for what bee to kiss ?
And from the dark’ning heaven of her eyes
A starry spirit looks out.”
A beautiful oasis in the midst of a dark
pir.c forest was Ellerslie, the woodland
home of Ida May. A neat white cottage
adorned with trellised vines and almost
hidden from view in the cool shallow of a
thick foliage of moss-clad oaks, was the
consecrated temple of this beautiful crea
tion, from whose flower-wreathed portal
onlythe sweet toned voice ofjoy ascended,
as the devotion of a pure and happy heart.
The whispering wind, stealing sweet odors
from each flower gem in un petit jardin,
filled the atmosphere with a fragrant joy,
then sighing on, now greets us,
“With a song among the trees,
A dvep-toncd melody which treats of heaven!”
Her home was beautiful for it was the
home of the poet’s fancy where thought
would enter and people it with beings pure
Ida May was a charming woman. In
her seventeenth year, she was not esteem
ed strikingly beautiful, yet her appearanc e
was pleasingly interesting. Her figure j
was elegant and her voice W3S but a music, i
al appeal to the senses. Her countenance j
was marked by a sweet and thoughtful j
serenity, yet she eminently possessed the
“Call round her laughing eyes in playful turn®

Her manners were graceful without af
fectation and her mind was adorned with
those delicate graces, which are the chief;
ornaments of female excellence. Her
conversation was cheerful with stiffness, i
and each pleasurable return of her society

Life, it is said, is a daily strife between !
our inclination and our duty, and oh, how
many painful lessons the young, the beau
tiful, the loved and the loving, treasure up
in their store-house of memory. We be
come acquainted with ourselves while
wcaringthe dress of childhood’s innocence,
then everything is new, everything de
lightful. We care not whence we came.
We rejoice because we are. But this
bliesful period passes away like a dream,
and too often visits us no more. Our pros
pects become suddenly darkened, some
faint idea of sorrow, of evil and of death
passes through the mind. We banish the
careless romance of childhood and acquire
the fear, the indwelling uncertainty and
dread of the future. Blessed childhood!
Thou art the coo! spring in the desert of
life, and happy, thrice happy is that being

voice of a fond mother—and its first lesson
of reverence anil awe, the commanding,
yet affectionate sternness of a much en
deared father. As vve progress in exist
ence its education becomes only the echo
of a theusand fairy dreams anil the soon
acquired knowledge of disappointment, of
the cold and selfish realities of life. Is it
a subject of wonder that we grow false,
hearted ?—that with the multitude we put
on the specious smile of affected happiness,
and, revelling in the fairy halls of imagina
tion, fancy that we are “the great, the good,
the beautiful,” the only ones upon whose
pa'li blooming flowers are strewn, and for
whom alone the thousand fragrancics of
life are shed.
But to our story. Ida May had been
reared like a sweet violet bidden from the
gaze, adulation, and consequent sorrow of
society. She was happy in the circle of
her home and seemed to wish no other
enjoyment, save to live always beneath
the smiles of her estimable parents. But
the spirit of change bad whispered words
of strange import, its dark wing disturbed
the peaceful atmosphere around her, and
henceforth a city life became a reality of
thought. Ida seemed happy with the ar
rangement. A city life, and her imagin
ation pictured the gay scenes, the crowded
streets, the fashionable society, and the
thousand sources of every dav enjoyment.
Yet the past could not be eradicated even
by her present anticipations. Her wood
land home, and the many haunts around
which hours of idleness had woven charms
of delight, and many a sigh (the sweet ex
pressed language of the heart,) was breath
ed when she thought that soon those pleas
ant haunts would become a source of
wished for visitation.
It is midsummer—The twilight shadows
fall gradually as a cloud upon the pleasant
city of S , softening the radiant glare
of non-waning brightness—a thousand fire
flies, mimicking the dull city lights, seem
like spirit’s eyes ever upon our pathway,
while the slowly ascending moon is fling
ing her first smile of joy upon that tall
and graceful steeple.
Fronting a tree-embowered square i
where the oak and India’s pride seem vie
iiig with each other fur precedence of
beauty, and whose emerald lawn is so
smoo'b and beautiful that it seems a fit
playgtound for the elfin tribes, where they
are wont to meet, to revel and rejoice at
midnight hour, the dawn of fairy day.—
Fronting this square, with its neat white
porch, was the city residence of Ida May.
Like all story tellers we must imagine
an interval in our simple recital of two
shoit years —short indeed when innocent
and simple pleasures yield their calm and
self-satisfying enjoyment, and the heart is
happy and content in its ignorance.
Ida May bad learned the lesson of
others the easiest to learn, — The sweetest
dream of youthful meditation—the poet’s
most enrapturing incentive—the shadowy
twilight of the heart’s future bliss—the
awakening into anew and more beautiful
existence than that of the past, an entire
forgetfulness of self—the feeling of respect
merged into that of earnest and endearing
faith, pure and hallowed devotion. Ida
had learned the fairy lesson of love !
Allow me my dear reader to introduce
to your notice the object of that love, that
faith and that devotion : Frederic Wal
ters had been the petted son of an affec
tionate mother, but alas ! that mother had
passed away from earth a seraph bride,
ere that bereaved son had attained the age
of sixteen years. Tossed by every wave
of fortune, and exposed to the many temp
tations incident to a city life, he bad pass
ed through tho fiery ordeal unharmed, and
that high and noble brow told, and told
truly, that conscientious motives, that rec.
titude and honor were the guiding princi
ples of Frederic Walters.
By accident thrown into the company o*
Ida, he had been charmed by her gentle
and winning manner, and his heart claim
ed from her the pure sympathy of friend
ship. The calm observer of the heart’s
mysterious workings will tell us, "that
friendship aided by sympathy of thought,
of purpose and of education, soon ripens
into love.” Ida’s bidden offering became
the true abiding faith of woman, but Fred
eric doubted. He had been told that Ida
was the betrothed of another—and soon,
too soon for their after happiness, he ban
ished the fiist bright dream of life and
sought from hei lips the common place
name of brother.
I aulton Dari.ey, the one upon whose
brow the busy world bad cast the wreath
of victory, and to whom the imagination
of many had betrothed our heroine, pos
sessed a selfish and ambitious nature.—
Handsome and graeeful, his manners were
easy and affectionate, and his earnest voice
and singularly beautiful smile, gave a fas
cinating influence ever to his presence.—
He had heard praises lavished upon the
lovely and wealthy Miss Ida, and his ima
gination revelled in anticipated wealth and
station. He loved her not, but around her
wealth he entwined pleasant hopes of en
joyment. Base deceiver! an uncertain
future will be thine through life, and when
death comes—when th« last grand scene
of earth is spread out before the gaze of
every created intelligence, and thine every
act, word and thought is known to the as
sembled multitude, how bitter will be thy
Months and days and hours have passed
away, bearing hope and joy, sorrow and
pain to many of earth’s mortals. Could
we lift the veil of futurity and know our
destiny, how painful would be each day’s
pilgrimage. Yet, whence arises the hap
piness of life ? Is it owing to the novelty
of the scenes which surround us, or to the
superficial view we take of persons and
things I It may be so. Nature clothes
her face in smiles and we resign ourselves
witli enthusiasm to appearances. We re
joice—whether the sun rise in glory, and
the leaves of the forest are spangled with
the dew of morning : or whether, setting
in the western ocean, he dye with stream
ing gold the eastern mountains. We re
joice—whether the rushing of the north
wind be beard among the hills, or the east
ern breeze sigh amid the tops of the pines.
Wc rejoice whether the south wind
breathes on spicy groves, or the gales rs
evening curl the bosom of the flowing
river. We rejoice—and we wish others
to share the happiness we feel. We think
that all mankind are possessed of the same
feelings of which we ourselves are con
scious—the young tendrils of our affec
tions lay hold of every object they can
reach—and we resign ourselves to the
raptures of friendship and of love. Must
this dream have au end 1 Can no charm
make the delusion coeval with our exis
tence I Shall the frosts of adversity nip
the young shoots of our affections ? Hap
py, thrice happy are they, whose life ter
minates ere the blind confidence of the
heart is destroyed.
Titus mused Fhedertc Walters, as
with heavy heart he thought of the ap
proaching marriage of his sister friend.—
And Ida, was she happy in view of this
contemplated union ? Could she return
this new and selfish affection ? Could she
banish thefirst waking joy of her existence,
and transferring the hopes and anticipated
joys which her every thought created,
build another altar from whence incense
would become tlie offering of a pure and
truthful heart ?
No? in truth she could not. Yet it
often seems so. The spirit of convenience
and of pride usurps the place of youthful
affection, and the heart becomes a beauti
ful cenotaph for its past hopes. It is un
natural. The vine that clusters its thick
foliage around some stately tree is crush,
ed when the whirlwind prostrates its proud
dependance. It may not wholly die, but
years must pass away ere its first tender
leaf springs from the ground, to wind its
affectionate charm around some moro fa.
vored forest inhabitant. * * *
* * * Lights were dancing in Ida’s
home, and laughing, merry voices stole
out upon the evening air. Tarlton Dar
ley and Ida May were one! Their
mutual vows had ascended to heaven, and
methinks a sorrowful emotion stirred the
breast of that bright recording angel, as he
caught a glimpse of their futurity. The
youthful couple seemed happy in their
new relation to each other, — a radiant joy
lit up their pathway, and the dim horoscope
of the future opened to them a fairy scene
of existence. Their bridal tour became a
visit to Ida’s home, her own bright Eller
she. There, in her long-neglected garden,
arranging the varied flowers with her care
fully cultivated taste,—drinking in the fra
grant breath of summer in her cool green
wood bower,—or, upon her well remem
bered “Fan,” her favorite pony, visiting
the many scenes and kind neighbors of her
childhood, with her Tarlton ever by her
s iffe ( Ida seemed to the careless observer
perfectly happy. But a cloud would rest
sometimes upon her brow, and shadowy
forms, the true and loved of other days,
would pass by with their sad and sorrow
ful looks, and seem to say, “ Farewell,
Ihe winter season had commenced in
the city of S . In a handsomely fur
nished parlor, before a comfortable fire,
reeiined a fair anil graceful woman.
Deep, earnest thought bad placed its un
mistakable stamp upon her brow, and her
quivering lip seemed to forbid its utter
ance. Ida Daulky was a bankrupt in
affection. She loved not now neither was
she loved. Taught in the school of aßlic
lion, Ida had raised her hopes from earth
to heaven, and tho sweet consolation of
religion, suited more to our sorrows than
our joys, filled her breast with a calm and
peaceful resignation. She had need nl
religion. That brother of death, consump
tion, had become her daily teacher, and
she knew that a few short days would pass
away, and she would ascend from earth to
heaven. * * * # *
* * It was a beautiful afternoon in
midsummer, calm, radiant and cold. The
setting sun was wasting its rich, golden
light, and the far off" clouds seemed like
waiting angel messengers. Ida was on a
bed of death. Around her were weeping
friends, distressed relatives—all, save her
husband ; where, oh, where was he ?
Could he be in scenes of gaiety and folly,
wasting the precious fleeting moments of
his wife’s existence ? Yes ! Tarlton
Darley had become more than brutish.
No single moment had witnessed bis lone
ly watching by her pillow,—no voice of
sympathetic affection, and no tear of sor
row had been uttered or expressed to
cheer the partner of his purest moments,
ere she passed away to heaven.
Ida's lonely grave is beneath an India
tree in the old brick grave yard in S .
A rose bush lias been planted by its side,
and on her tomb-stone Frederic Wai
ters has written these lines :
“ Rest sister spirit rest,
From every sorrow free ;
The ills that wring the aching heart,
No more shall torture thee.
Oh! that my lingering soul,
Like thine might flee away,
Enchanted by such sweet control,
Up to the realms of day.
YVo will not weep for thee,
Thou dweller oftlie heart ;
Thou needest not our sympathy,
Bright seraph as thou art.
For us whoyetromain,
Be given the tearful eye ;
'Tis ours to mourn, thine is the gain,
Thine is the victory !”

M hat do some Southern papers meanlrv
Northern conservatism? Do they mean
by it some kind of check upon raving fan
aticism? In what doce it consist ? Who
uses it? \\ hat Northern legislature, con -
vention, meeting or man ? Is it an abstrac
tion, a spirituality, the shads ofa reality?
Is it found among the clergy, or the peo
ple ? Wlm can make it tangible orbiingit
to light ? We would subscrible liberally,
(much more than the Bostonians paid to see
Gliddou’s Egyptian Mummy,) to see
Northern conservatism showed up in its
true colors. The Mummy was a horrid
chest, for it proved to be n negro of hid
eous aspect* which, process, had
been shrivelled find dried'iip so a4 to look
as if were tbiee thousand years old. We
think this Northern conservatism is as
great a cheat. Those, who are so sedu
lously engaged in trying to flatter and se
duce the people into silent submission id
aggression by it, ought to show them what
in is. Or are they fearful that it is some I
thing far worse than a political gyascutus ?
We should like to see it uncovered.
The Whig State Convention, which
met at Montpelier, Vermont, on the 17th
July, passed a resolution unanimously that
slavery should be prohibited in all the ter
ritories and future new States ? Is that
Northern conservatism with whose spon
taneous beauties some of our editors and
a few others too, have become so felici
tously moonstruck. It may be a very in
sinuating thing, but it is as hard to find as
the new comet.
Perhaps it takes an aristarchian percep
tion to see into it. Will not some flippant
user of the term conservatism, as applied
to the North, bestow some ataxary upon
those anxious minds which have a longing
curiosity to see a picture written or paint
ed, of Northern conservatism? It is used
so often that some people have connected
it with a sort of necromancy. It would
doubtless be easier to practice divinatu n
by the term, than to give it a practical defi
nition and application. Northern conserv
atism on the slavery question ? Who can
give it a practical illustration?
Is it a figment of fancy or a chip of fact?
We should like to know. It is bad en
ough for people to be cheated oat of their
rights in any way, but it is absolutely hor
rible to be made the victims of idealism or
the idiosyncrasy of a few. If we dont
seem to express ourself with remarkable
clearness, we hope the reader will recol
lect that we are upon a deep subject.—.
Mr. Rusk, of Texas, made the follow
ing remarks in the Senate of the United
States on the 20lh ult. "As this question
of boundary between Texas and the Uni
ted is point, and as it
sword, l rise to say that Texas came into
the Union claiming these boundaries, and
that, in all tho negotiations and transac
tions that took place between this Govern
ment and Mexico, this Government insist
ed upon the boundaries of Texas as defin
ed by herself. This fact all the negotia
tions show. All the intercourse between
this Government and Mexico asserted the
boundaries of Texas to tbe Rio Grande.—
This was asserted over and over again.—
Every acre of that territory claimed by
Texas was included in the treaty of peace
between Mexico and tbe United States.—
And sir, these boundaries, which were in
sisted upon as against Mexico, and for
which war was declared to assert them,
are denied, when Texas is concerned.
And by whom ? By tbe Congress of the
United States? No, sir. Under any au
thority of the Congress? No, sir. By
whom, then? Under an order of the
Secre!ary qf YVar, reversing the former
order! And we are told that if we at
tempt by force to restrain a portion of our
citizens, in our territory, who under this
advice are attempting to make a Stale, we
shall be making war against the Unitid
States, and shall thereby be committing
treason. I hope and trust that this no*
cessity will be avoided. 1 hope and
that the action of this Government w ill fall
back into its proper train, and that some
of that kindness of which Senators talk so
much, but of which I must confess I have
seen so little, will be exhibited, and that
matter will be amicably adjusted. 1 am
sure I have thrown no obstruction in the
way. If the question is left to be dermin
ed whether Texas has a right to extend
her laws and if, under the advice of the
Executive of this GoAermnent without tbe
authority ofCongress and the consent of
Texas, these people should form a State
for tho purpose of being brought into ibis U
nion; if, under these circumstances.thister
ritory belongingto Texas is to be held un
der the military force of the United States,
Texas will resist; even if it be treason,
she will resist—and the full share of that
treason that shall attach to one citizeu
sliali to me. With all my hopes of peace
and all my attachments tothis Union,l will
never tamely submit to the exercise of un
authorized militiary power, and you may
be sure that Texas will hot. Thtaf is k
j contest between right ah J n rang, 'and the
right is with Texas.
