LETTER f:oi Wa.
Albany , 15, 1850.
Mr. Editor —Dear Sir:—l congratulated you on your
change of position and the battering prospects I learn
are opening to you, in your new enterprise, at the
centre >f this mighty commonwealth. I al
so, sir, on your happy selection of a title to you. 1 new o Mimal
and the still more felicitous and characteristic motto you /Vye i
chosen a* the chart of your editorial career. I never sav.N
motto that phased me better ; it suits me to a fraction, as it ,
does many others, and 1 thing 1 can prom'. - • you many cash

I have uo news of interest to give you at present. The so
cial affairs of our city are in a quiescent state, the inhabitants
being generally on the aine platform o # equality and fraternity.
Occasionally we see glimpses of Aristocratic pretension, but
few are an fait in matters of etiquette and refinement.
As to morals , although we are blest with churches and Gos
pel privileges, 1 fear that we have still much need of improve
ment. The cause of religion in a depressed condition,—
Gambling, drinking and cockfighting prevail to some extent,
with an occasional liorse-race that diversify the entertain
ment, Y'e had one of the latter in Albany, two weeks ago,
and another will come off at Newton on next Thursday week.
The Inferior Court of Baker Cos., has not yet ordered an
election for Representative in place of Col. Bell resigned.—
The < rovernor issued his proclamation, but it lias not been
obeycil, probably because the Legislature lias adjourned and
mav not again be called together before anew election of the
whole body. Col. Bell has gone to Texas, as was expected.
Your old friend “Philo” is as “‘large as life and twice as nat
ural.” You need not wonder ai hearing of his being a can
didate for Congress, from this Dirtrict, at the next election.
Ills ambition will probably get the better of liis modesty and
urge him to seek the nomination.
As regards the Nashville Convention, there is a diversity
of opinion as to the propriety or expediency of the measure.
In tliis part of the State, there is no excitement whatever. —
The people have no apprehension of a crisis , and are there
fore as calm as a summer morning. Occasionally we hear a
warmblooded citizen let out a few anathemas at the North
ern abolitionists, and at such fire-eating Congressmen as Bis
sel of Illinois, whose vain threat against the South they have
just been reading, but generally, every thing is quiet here in
the political world.
I do not doubt the cool determination of the people of this
section to ‘v i , . in .r arms ’ should it ev r become abso
lutely necessary in defence of th. ir ri; its and vindication of
their honor. They yet however, believe, and hope that Con
gress will settle the question at issue, and that peace will again
prevail in all the borders of our glorious confiederacy.
By your leavc'l will keep you advised, occasionally, of the
savings and doings of this Southwestern city. It is a favora
ble point of observation, as there are many persons passing
in search of land in this most desirable planting region, from
whom much that is inter, - ring may be gleaned, by any one
who will take the trouble. We sometimes also have a little
town gossip iffoat of which you shall have the “‘dots,” if you
deem them worthy of notice.
Yours truly, SOUTHWEST.
CONSTANCE of WERDENBERG
The Heroes of Switzerland.
A Draia(ic Poem,
Written for the “Georgia Citizen,’ by Mr<. C. L. llkntz.
ACT 1.-—Scene 1.
A chamber in the Castle of Werdcnbcrg.
CONSTANCE AND IIIEDA.
Constance:—Why should i shadow o’er the joyous tints
Os youth and hope, with sorrows such as mine?
No sympathy can heal a wound so deep,
No tenderness aesuaue this bosom’s pangs.
Hilda. —All! gentlest lady—could I see thee weep—
But when 1 mark the anguish of thine eye,
And hear the sighs that labor in thy breast,
1 find my own tears oft unheeded fall.
Const.w k.— The time has been, when these dry eyes were washed
With ceaseless deluges of burning tears—
When these sealed lips poured sacrilegious forth
The maniac ravings of uncltastened grief—
But time has calmed the tempest's raying power
Down to the sullen stillness of despair,
Leaving, as sad mementoes of its wrath,
My ruitied happiness and blighted youth.
Hilda.—l? love end faith so strong, t to outlive
1 ie, absence, and w-ao-e eV !; death it>e!f.
C,.aa i anos. Has'. . i iorovr wakened from” their sleep
Memories too mighty for this w earied pint—
Thou knows’t not, dreames’t not of the depth and strength
Os woman’s pure, unalterable love.
Oh Berthoid! lost and ruined as thou art,
A wandering exile from thy native land.
Thou still art dearer to this toriured heart,
Than when thou dwelled*t in these ancestral towers,
In all the stainless lustre of thy fame.’
Hilda.—But may he not return?
Constance* —What, know’st thou not his forfeit life
Would pay his country’s violated law ?
Hilda.—Bo sacred is the history of j our sorrows,
I know not ail tne causes of the gloom,
That shrouds your days in darkness.
To what oblivion never can efface.
When, in my morn of womanhood, I dwelt
An idol, ir my wilowi Jfarher’s balls,
Led by his wealth and rank, and by the beauty,
Whose waning light now glin uera o’er my face,
Lovers contended for these va anted charms.
Hilda.—Alt, Lady! where is beauty's gayest bloom,
That can compare with loveliness, iiKetliine?
Constance.—Tis but the faint reflec’ion of the past,
These cheeks, as colourless as Alpine snows,
Then shamed the n>ses of my native bowers;
Jl These now reflected looks, then wreathed with care
. Might vie in burnish, with the raven’s plumage—
But oh 1 how vain, how poor were all these boasts —
How valueless the empire tney secured,
3 * Till Berthoid came, and shone above the rest,
I • As shines the day-star o'er each meaner orb.
| ‘oung, noble, gallant, passionate, and brave,
Jiis character seemed moulded thus, to meet
The depth, the pride, the passion of my own.
Oh 1 o’er inv lonely being’s cheerless blank,
The memory of those days of wedded joy,
.ernes, like the hues, which sunset throws
Upon the mountain’s icy brow—
But jealous avals, batfled in their suit,
Detested him, who won the heart they sought,
Othon, proved Landerburg’s still prouder son,
And haughty Herman too, whose lawless flame
Is still the bane ami terror of my life,
Bent on him glances of vindictive ire.
I feared those lightning flashes, but he scorned,
And pined 100 their ineffectual rage,
A few short months of bliss flew swiftly by,
On angel pinions, glittering as “hey flew
Dwn “, llii.g . ar —i.si , ~ir draining source,
.t enter tears —ihe iatal day hau I . ned,
Day marked ny desolation w.lrse than death:
He left tne for the chase, mid lonely paths.
. That wind along Helvetia’s mountain heights.
The huntsmen met, Berthoid and Othon met.
L The imprisoned flame Mazed forth, wrath long restrained
But rthsuhdued. in Othon’s fiery breast,
R Foamed like the torrent waters near their path
Defying looks, high words, and angry threats,
’A ith calm contempt my noble BelhnJd liore
But when in Othon’s hand the dagger gleamed.
Then steel met steel, and deadly blow met blow
lie tell, but Berth cud lives——in exile lives—
Or dis unhonored in a foreign land.
Hildc. Alas: sweet lady, what a tale of woe!
Constim e. Hour after hoot, I watched for his return —
At last his steed cant- rushing through the gate,
A tale of blood in its ill-omened s; e and
Methinks e“en now, 1 se ; the thrilling glance,
That wet the fond inquietude of mine.
Isp Ke n, ’k moved not, u ;n!e in accents hoars.*,
And low, he told the fatal deed, he’d wrought,
An age of frenzy, horror and despair
Boiled o er my soul in that tremendous moment.
With frantic earnestness I bade him fly,
But w hen he wrapped me wildly in Ins arms,
And vowed near Constance lo await Ids fate,
. I rent myself from their embracing fold—
kjeht, I prayed—but Oh! how poor are words,
paint the agony, the living death,
ired in that last hour, that parting hour.
-—Liiiiappj ccur.l, lias he ne’er seen his child?
xe- Born lean orphanage, more sad than death,
Afan; heir of Werdeaberg received
The bubt ism of a w idowed mother’s tears,

How calm thy waters sleep, thou *k, n t lake

Or lie in soft tranquility of shade, * °
They’re eloquent of peace, and image ba^
Eternity to the blue depths above.
The guardian mountains watch around thy b.}
Raising their regal heads amid the clouds, ’
Or twining round their diadems of snow,
A wreath of silvery beams. My awe struck soul
Feels tne dread p xsence of Creation’s God,
And bows in homage to his majesty.
Hark? isitecln startling from the rock?
Oh! my sick heart; what mist, what darkness veils me (sinks
down on a projecting rock. Herman advances from his concealment.
Constance rushes forward, exclaims “Berth Id, 1 ’ and falls lifeless j tl
HEP.MAN..-Ha! Death is on her face. Her heart lies cold
Beneath the deep pulsation of my own.
I dare not look upon her. Constance, speak;
Speak, break this dreadful stillness. Life returns,
Constance.— What voice recalls my spirit back to earth?
Herman! I’ui lost, thou virgin mother save me;
! Herman.—Lady, thou’rt safe, as with the virgin mother,
( Kneeling,) Forgive the wretch, who urged by love and madness,
i Has dared to brave thy cruelty and scorn.
Constance.— Deliberate villain! cowardly and cruel,
What price shall pay thee for a deed so base ?
Herman—What price, for years, has paid me for the strength,
fbe intense devotion, worship of my love?
Constance.—Herman, in pity, more than wrath I see tliee,
Thou art not strong in guilt. A late remorse
Shall lead thee back to rectitude and honor,
j Herman.—Honor! I care not what the world calls honor;
Hadst thou been mine, thou wouldst have made me all
That glory, virtue, would be proud to claim,
j Oh ! Constance, Constance, hadst thou given me,
One spark of that deep passion thou hast wasted,
Hadst thou given me, the morning of thy youth,
/ ne'er had left it. / had watched its bloom,
Through trial, shame, teinptatidn, danger, death.
| Constance. — Tkou kvUt nutlcftme! Herman, dare not thus
Coinpar“thyself to one. th->- runs’ not humble.
I never wronged thee. What is woman’s wealth?
Her tenderness. It was not mine to give,
i ’Twas given in all its power to another,
Think, when my wedded vows made love a sin,
Didst thou struggle with its lawless strength,
j And when that bloody tragedy was o’er,
The work of smli unJwJiotped love, when left
Crushed, desolate, with wopnded brain and heart
Bleeding and torn, the hand of Heaven upon me,
Didst tiiou respect the sanctity of grief?
A wife and mother! Hast thou felt how pure
These holy names ? No! with polluting vows,
Thou hast profaned them, and hast dared to think,
That Constance might to infamy descend.
! Herman.—Hold, hold, l sware by the attesting Heaven
Dear as 1 love thy proud and kindling beauty,
Thy purity and loftiness of soul,
Inspire a more elevated homage.
Constance. —Thmt lov’st my pride and purity of soul!
Where were its pride and purity, if once
1 smiled on vows, honor must blush to hear?
What urged thee to the baseness of this night ?
Why choose this hour of gloom, this loneiy spot ?
\\ hat means the changing hue, the hectic flush,
That, e’en by moonlight, on thy cheek is seen?
| Herman.—l am not master of myself. I yield
| To the strong power that bears me to my doom,
Yet Constance, I could urge a plea, to back
My suit, more strenuous than selfish passion.
Thou know’st how long Helvetia’s freeborn sons,
Have groaned beneath imperial Albert’s yoke,
How long his haughty delegates have scourged
Our lofty peasants, monarchs of the soul.
Bold dwellers of the hills, with spirits high
And tameless as the eagles of the cliffs;
They spurn the hand, that presses bondage on them;
Gesslar, the fierce, lies on his rocky bier,
A peasant’s arrow quivering in his heart,
iut Lander berg s', it! lives, nor heeds the doom
Proclaimed in gatnering to indors througn the vale.
Then fly with me. I’ll throw a guardian shield
Os love around thee. See! yon boat awaits,
The moonbeams track shall guide us o’er the lake.
Constance.— No foe so dreaded as unlicenced love,
Though born of Austrian blood and lordly rank,
I feci the injuries of the noble Swiss,
There’s not a son of Switzerland would lift
His ami against an unprotected woman,
But should they stain—Sons of the brave and free—
Their ancient glory by an act so base,
I'd meet them dauntless on my Castle walls,
My child enfolded in my sheltering arms—
His helplessness would be my best defence.
Thou hast inv answer, leave mo to my fate.
Herman.—l’ve sworn to save thee. No! I leave thee not.
Constance. —Then stay, vain man, I will not waste on thee
Pleadings to which a nobler mind would yield,
I would have won thee back to truth and honor,
But (slave of thy mail passion#, thou art lost—
Thou dar'st not follow me, Pm not alone;
Legions of guardian spirits are around me;
They bend from yonder mountains—yon wild rocks,
And wave their silver pinions o’er the lake.
Stand back, false Knight, thou dar'st not follow me.
(Herman attempted to deliver her, when Erni, a peasant
youth, who lms advanced unperceived from the rocks, seizes
ltim, and fells him to the ground.)
Erni.—Fear not, Lady—
The mountain peasant has a high-born soul—
A stainless hand, which can avenge thy wrongs.
Constance.—Protection, noble youth—let vengeance sleep,
I said these rocks had guardian spirits near them.
Herman. —(rising and springing upon Erni,)
Ha! base-born peasant, coward, lurking spy—
Thou darest to baffle me—
Erni. — (wrestling in his grasp) I dare still more—
My peasant arm has not laid down its strength,
Thou know’st its weight.
: Herman.—lladst thou not stolen on me
Dastard wretch! thou couldst not boast my shame,
This for thy baseness, (drawing a dagger.)
Erni.—(wrenching it from his grasp and throwing it far into
I the waters of the lake.)
This, proud Knight, for thine.
1 Herman. —I'll not contend with nn unweaponcd hand,
Prod at the plough, in fellowship with herds.
Thou well may'st boast of strength. But we sltall meet
Vassal, aye, meet on other terms than these.
(springs into the boat and disappears)
Erne —Yes, we thall meet, but not when thou shalt summon.
Where shall I guide thee, Lady ? Each wild path
The mountaineer's accustomed steps can trace.
Constance. —Yonder the towers of Werdenherg ascend —
Behold the mistress of those fated walls,
Erni. —Constance of Werdenherg? Oh! blest the hour,
That gave such glory to my youthful arm.
! Constance. —(drawing from her finger a glittering ring)
This gem upon its brilliant surface bears
• The name and emblem of our ancient house,
The honor of that ancient house, through thee
Is still undimncd and pure —Receive this ring;
And by this sacred pledge, each free-horn Swiss
Shall find a brother’s place in Constance’ heart.
[to BE CON-TINTED.]
Impotent Threats. —One Bissel, of Illinois, threatens
the South with three dozen Regiments of “Suckers,” if we
% E ®P_ # a i a @i*Bi mm .
do not submit-to Northern aggression ! How vain is such a
tfireat, may he learned from the fact, that it took one whole
regiment of such suckers. (Col. Baker’s.) during the late
Mexican war, to quell a row in one company of Georgia Vol
untoers, (the Irish Greens,) on the Rio Grande river ?
W hew . what a licking these Seekers would get, if they ever

MACON, GA. MARCH 23, 1850.
After being high and dry, for some weeks, upon the sand
banks oi Cape Disappointment, our newly constructed and
neatly rigged barque >’ Citizen” lias this day got afloat iu the
full tide of Experiment Bay, with all sails set and rich cargo on
board, on her first weekly trip coastwise along the shores of
the good old Commonwealth of Georgia! The Commoder’s
flag is at the mast head, and those who know anv tiling of his
late five year’s cruise in the waters of Chattahooche, will not
need to be informed, that INDEPENDENCE is the watch
void w hich is inscribed upon its folds and under which he will
continue to cruise, in all his future weekly or annual voyages in
the j .articular southern latitude embraced in his Chart.
It will therefore be superfluous, for him. on the present oc
casion. to renew his protestations of loyalty to the reigning
sovereignty of the republic— the people —or to make any spe
cial pledges of his continued devotion to their interests. To
the past he would point as an index to the future, only promis
ing that all that his experience tact and skill in this species of
Navigation can accomplish, will be done to add to the happi
ness and augment the pleasure of those who may entrust them
selves to his Companionship, for a longer or shorter cycle of
time. To all quicksands and shoals he will give a wide berth,
and as far as possible, avoid fogs and dead calms , prefer
ing a somewhat lively and rollicking progression, under a clear
sky, even though the atmosphere should be keen and
piercing, to the stagnation and ennui of mill-pond dullness.
That propitious gales will always waft his barque onward in its
course, it would be in vain to hope. He trusts, however that
as lull a measure of prosperity awaits him as he deserves, and
that, at the close of his voyage, there .will be none in his com
panionship, who will regret the trips they have made under
his flag, or fail, long after, to cherish a pleasing reminiscence of
the same, as green spots on the waste places of ‘Memory.
With this brief Proclamation to his friends and the public,
and a general invitation to all hands to come aboard, the Com
mandant heaves anchor and spreads his canvass to the breeze,
“ Gon save the Commonwealth J”
i The present “N timber of the “ Georgia Citizen” will be sent

“unity, witli a view to ‘Mist them, generally, in an enterprise

for its regular visitation.
In like manner, we shall send aoopy of this va _

in its support. These copies need not be returned to the of- ‘

te give all an opportunity to take the paper; not to entrap them

any orders we may receive for the “ Citizen,’* except in cases
where the parties are known to the publisher, ir responsible

Let him not falter in well doing.
UpSTThe offer of W. C. 11. is accepted, without reservation.
We shall be iuippy to enlist his pen for our columns, on terms
so favorable to us.
fW Will not S. T. J. try his hand at the Epistolary style of
writing? We think it would suit bis genius first rate. Let
him send us an “inkling” of that character, as a specimen of
what can be done.
Supplied. In answer to many inquiries from journeymen
printers seeking employment at this office, we have to give no
tice, that we are supplied with all the assistance needed at
Acknowledgments. Our thanks are specially due to our
brethren of the Macon Tress, for the courtesy they have one
and all shown us, since our arrival in the city, and for numer
ous kindly offices rendered, by which we have been essentially
aided in getting under way. We shall stand ready to recipro
cate all such favors in spirit and in deed.
Our Correspondence. The reader will please give all
possible indulgence to any eccentricities of which out* corres
pondents may be guilty, iu their intercourse with the “ Georgia
Citizen.” Some of them are novices in their vocation, and
may not always temper the wind to the shorn victim. We
would ltave them speak as freemen should, on all topics of pub
lic interest —'boldly and plainly—but always truthfully and
without malice. And so ioug as they will keep within this rule,
though they may express sentiments which are not in unison
with our own, we shullynot feel at liberty to expunge the record
or mutilate the correspondence.
Mns. llentz’s Poem. —We invite attention to the beauti
ful Drama of this accomplished Lady, which is commenced in
our paper to-day. There arc passages of great newer and
beauty in it, which the reader of ordinary literary acumen
cannot fail to observe and appreciate.
The Nashville Convention. Were we to give our “first
impressions” touching the proposed Convention at Nashville,
next June, wc should %ay “hands off, gentlemen,” “touch
not the unclean thing.” In this notion we may be wrong, but
if we are, it is an error of the head and not of the heart whose
every pulsation is that of strong, undying attachment to the
South and her Institutions. We readily admit that the people
of the Southern portion of the Union have great and pressing
cause for alarm, on account of the progressive encroachment
of Northern fanaticism upon our rights and privileges under
the Constitution, and that “ now is the accepted time” for the
settlement of a question so threatening to the safely, peace and
honor of the country. But, we do not sec what good can come
| of the Nashville Convention, composed as it will be to, a great
j extent, of young and ardent politicians, on whose heads the
’ wisdom sound experience hjs not scattered its blossoms of
| s-l U-. rv hr. T ’ the grave i-e.'.ator- (f the nation ar.d the able
} Representatives in Congress, cannot devise a plan for the satis
-1 factory adjustment of this momentous question, how can it be
expected, that a promiscuous assemblage like that which will
meet at Nashville can even approximate to so desirable a con
summation. Besides the inability of such a convention to ac-
I com pi i.‘-li any useful purpose, from lack of authority to act for
i the people and frflfci lack of wisdom to devise proper measures
of relief in the emergency upon us, what guaranties have we,
that there will be the necessary unanimity in council to ef
fect results of magnitude and worthy of the great occasion ?
It is almost impossible to hope for such unanimity as to the
j modes of redress and the ways and means of carrying out
i the ostensible objects of the Convention. The assemblage
| will doubtless agree on one thing, that is, in the necessity of
stopping northern encroachments, but that is all, we fear that
can be done. Witness the lack of union among the South
ern Members of Congress upon the famous “ Address” of
last Session! Witness, too, the differences, and strifes be
tween such men its Clay and Calhoun, both Southern men,
on this very question of slavery ! And, lastly, witnesss the
crimination and recrimination, even at this moment, between
the Whig and Democratic presses of Georgia as to the same
topic! How these yet hostile parties, or their representatives,
con meet at Nashville, and harmoniously agree upon mca-
sures of public good we cannot divine. It cannot bo done!
That day of political milkman: when the Lion of party sliall
fie down in peace with the Lamb it has ever aimed to destroy,
has not yet arrived. What then ! it may be asked of us.
will you oppose the Nashville Convention and its objeets ?
Most certainly tve shall not do neither, with our present
knowledge or lack of knowledge of the purposes and aims of
thai body. W e shall not strike, at random or in the dark.
Nor would we throw a straw in the way of such Convention,
if Congress fails to settle the question before the period of its
meeting, provided we do not, ere that time, smell Treason in
the wind so foul, that its offence cries out to heaven, and de
mands of every patriot all Ids zeal for the crushing of the
In the mean time, we would recommend moderation to
those who are most active in beating up recruits for the Con
vention. Let there no be denunciation, no inflammatory ap
peals, no unjust insinuations indulged in, by one portion of the
press towards another. Let ns look at things, camly and phi
losophically. One cool man is to be dreaded more than ten
blusterers. If we would teach the North that we are earnest
in our opposition to their encroachments, let us not commit
our cause to the keeping either of bloody “ hot-spurs” or
broken-down politicians, who seek their self-aggrandizement
rather than the glory and safety of the South. Above all,
let us all school ourselves to the necessity cf union and har
mony in the solemn crisis which is impending over our wide
spread Republic. I hen, should it ever become our impera
tive duty to strike for our altars and our firesides, we can go
into the contest, with the assurance that the “ God of Battles”
will be our shield and defence, and will give victory accord
ing to tile right.
A Sample. —Cotton planters, who would like to improve
their staple in the ginning process, so as to make it bring half
a cent to a cent more, per pound, than ordinarily, can learn
howto do it, by calling at this office. We have a sample of
cotton on hand to verify the fact, which we will take pleasure
in showing to those curious in such matters. The knights of
the Gimblet who have seen it say that the word beautiful, in
the positive, will not give the precise idea of the superior qual
ity of this Muscogee county cotton, as it came from a gin which
Israel F. Brown, (of the firm of E. T. Taylor & Cos., of Co
luinbus.) had under his ingenious hand, for repair.
A Graphic Ticture. The Letter from California in our
paper, to-day, is from the pen of a worthy and well known
citizen of Columbus, Ga., whose description of the toils and
privations of a California ‘liner’slife is simply, as we nu>i>4,
a transoii-ntof his owe t>>ttci experience in that far offland. A
more graphic picture is Seldom presented. Let those having
the “gold fever,” “read, mark and inwardly digest” the les
son ho imparts, before leaving home and its endearments on
such a wild goose chase, after bidden treasure. We have an
other letter on hand from the same friend, of Uvo months later
date, which we are compelled to lay over, till next week.
Religious Discussion. The Rev. Dr. Lovick Tierce,
(Methodist) of Columbus, and the Rev. C. F. R. Shehane,
(1 niversalist) ot Alabama, met in Debate of the theological
questions which divide these denominations, at Americus, Ga.,
on Thursday last. We are informed that there were a thou
sand people, from Sumpter and adjacent counties, in attendance
upon the discussion, which lasted until Saturday, if not longer !
Dr. Tierce chose Mr. N. Robinson as his Moderator, and Mr.
Shehane selected Maj. M. B. Pickett, as his, —-these choosing
Mr. Mcßcan as the umpire. “On Thursday morning Mr. S.
opeoed tile debate iu a speech of two hours long. Dr. T. fol
lowed in the afternoon, in reply, for the same space of time.
On hriday Mr. S. again opened and alternated with Dr. P. in
speeches of an hour each. On Saturday Mr. S. again ope ned
the debate in an hour’s speech, to which Dr. P. was replying
when our informant left.

New Power Press. —The N. Y. Scientific American of
the 9th inst. contains an illustrated description of the new
Power Press invented by .Mr. A. I). Brown, of Clinton, Ga,
and patented a short time ago. It is called “Browns Eccen
tric Progressive Power Press.” and “is calculated for Cotton,
Hay, Hemp, Tobacco, &c., by horse power, and, by using a
wheel and pinion, will answer admirably for pressing any
other article where great pressure is required in a small
space.” As soon as the necessary cuts are received from
New York we will transfer to our columns a full description
of this important invention, for the benefit of the planting in
terest its well as in honor of a worthy citizen of Georgia, to
whom we wish abundant recompense of reward for inventive
gunius usefully employed.
Door Plates. —A new and beautiful Door Plate made of a
combination of metals andwhich lias the appearance of pure
silver , are now being manufactured by Messrs. Moore & Al
ley, of Columbus, Ga., to order. The superiority of these
Door Plates over plated or Brass articles, consists in the dura
bility of the brilliant silvery color of which they are suscepti
ble. The ent>n plate being of *he sime material, no cleansing
of it can efface its permanent polish. Tiie article is patented
by a brother of Mr. Moore in the State of N. York, but the lat
ter has the right to manufacture and vend it in the South. A
specimen plate, with the style of lettering, can be seen at this
office, where orders will be received for the same.
Our Book Table.
“TheMestico or the M ar-path and its incident*,” is
the title of an Original Nouvellateor Story, from the pen of
W. C. Hodges, Esq ,of Columbus, Ga., which the author has
obligingly forwarded to us. It is a “ story of the Creek Indi
an disturbances of 1836,” and details, with thrilling interest,
many of the well-kown incidents of the hist bloody strife with
that Indian tribe on the western border of this State. The re
nowned Jim He ary is the hero of the tale, and his character
is delineated with the pen of a “ready writer.” The citizens
of Macon and vicinity, who are desirous of encouraging native
talent in the walks of literature, as well as refreshing them
selves with a pleasant reminiscence of interesting liistorical
events that occurred, a few years since, at our own doors, can
be gratified by calling at this office, where a supply of the w'ork
will be kept for sale. It can be had also at the Book stores—
price 35 cents. We are indebted to the talented young author
for the original sketch of “ Lover’s Leap,” which will be found
on our first page.
Reel Foot. Those of our western friends who may know
of persons afflicted with this deformity, will be doing them a
service, by directing attention to the card of Professor James
Weaver, M. D.,of Memphis,Teun., which may be found in
our advertising columns to-day. Dr. W. is a surgeon of ac
knowledged skill and eminence, as we can testify from personal
r l he School-Fellow. Wc are indebted to TV*. C. Richards,
tsq., Editor of the Charleston Weekly Gazette, for a copy of
this admirable Monthly. It is just tlie tiling for Boys and Girls,
and should be found in every family where there are juveniles.
W To Mr. R. we are also under obligation for a copy of an
Address, delivered by t x-Gov. Ilammond, before the late An
nual Meeting of the South Carolina Institute, at Charleston.
W e-find much valuable information in this Address on the sub
ject of Manufactures, Ac., in the South, of which we shall,
hereafter, avail ourselves. On our last |>age will be found an
extract that bears upon the mooted question of instructing ne
groes in the Mechanic Arts. Mr. H. is opposed to the policy,
and gives cogent reasons for the opinions he entertains upon
Richard sW eeklv Gazette. Tlie name of tliis popular
miscellany is shortly to be changed to that of the “ Southern
Literary Gazette,” under which title anew volume will be
commenced, with unsurpassed attractions in matter and man
ner, either North or South. Sosays Mr. R., and we doubt not,
h’ will make goi*d all his promises on the subject. Richards
