We clip the above from the issue of
our neighbor the Herald, of the IGth'in-
stant, and present it to our readers to
day, believing it will be as rare a treat
to many of them as it was to us upon its
Wo arc by poetry us we are by ruusio:

and is m accord with our own naure.
Upon t.'.s principle, the above stanzas,
in our estimation, possess merit of a high
order. The author, we “guess,” is Col.
L. E. Biackly, who has tnus given very
marked evidence ui Lis high and varied
attainments. The Muses and the Law do
not usually go together; though, m Geor- 1
gia, we have had some rare exceptions,
such, for instance,as J udge Charlton, Gen.
Henry R. Jackson and Richard Henry
Wilde. The latter, in his mature years,
was justly legarded as oue of the ablest
lawyers iu the Uaiitd States, while uo

The B'leton Pont, in referring to t e*
Democracy of Maiue, quotes from the
Hepublican Journal, of lie!last, that the
mass of tlie party of that State want a
“good, otd-fasbioned Democratic Cou-
j vention, OV a call that shall be broad
en iugu to invite alj who st-e the great
necessity for a change of men and meas

commenting, say s that

critlic principle*, with such u odificstions and addi
tions as later issues mig .t make desirable, wou d
appeal .u an irresistible manner to the voters of a
Sbb that cutfeia under the disgrace which the Re
publican tarty hie, brou„nt upon the country in ail
Us later measures.”
A few day s since we Rave extracts Irom
Texas papers giving out the same spirit:
and thus we have tne Democracy of the
extreme Northeastern State and the ex-
ticme Southern one, bordering on the
Rio Grande, uud anotlier iu the West,
calling lor a return to those old princi
ples of Jtfleisouiau Democracy that were
last year deserted lor a line of policy that
resulted most disastrously to the cause
of liberty. Wherever the true Demo
cratic sentiments of the people are freely
expressed, it is to the effect that they are
tired of the temporizing, semi-Radieal
policy which bus given the party defeat
at every point.
And in the language of the Rockport
Lemociat, “the Democratic party is not
dead, nor will it die while the Republic
lives ;” because the principles of the one
are the very life-blood, as it were, of free
government itself. Tiio Republic was
born of Democracy, and grew to its great
power and strength under the fostering
caie of Democratic principles and policy.
And yet we have men calling themselvts
Democrats, assuming to be leaders ol
lhe party, trilling and coquetting, bar
gaining and endeavoring to transfer the
party to the platform of principles adopt
ed by the Rt publican convention at Cin
cinnati last year, and upon which was
placed the most intense Radical of the
whole Union as a candidate for Presi
No wonder we see the Dimccracy of
the country thus early calling for a resto
ration of the ancient creed and doctiines
of the party, lest they may be agtun
transferred to the support of Radicalism,
as they were last year by tricky, trading
politicians. These ealls are comiog from
Maine, from Indiana, from Texae, and
from many other portions of the Union,
because the true men of the party desire
not to be again beguiled and deceived by
pretended political friends.
Referring to these figures, the Kansas
City (Mo.) Times says: “Yts, it is com
ing, lhe total separation of the Soutu
from New England—a separation that
will be more fatal tbun if every seceding
State hud erected a separate and inde
pendent government. The war has been
of immense advantage in rome resptets
to the South, while in others it has dealt
her 6ome terrible blows. Yet, after all is
said and done, it has taught her the real
sincerity 01 h-r persecutors —thet-ue na
tare of the animus which actuateu them
fiurmg the struggle—ar.d the Southern
people will ueither be wise nor huu en
umess they urofit by these lessons to the
confusiou of their tormentors.”
When the Southern States become
sufficiently populous to engage more and
more iu ail grades of mechanical and
L'laLiufactural enterprises, so certain will
oe the process ot developing a magnifi
cent independence of all other sections
of the Union, that even New England
may be loudest iu her regrets that the
nstitutions of tie South were ever d's-
turbed by the clamors of htr own loud
mouthed so-calleu reformers. 1
Let all industrial pursuits be encour

ability to do so, and the day is not far
distant when the South will agaiu stand
before the world proud and independent,

The cause of education iu tli s
town has received a new ami fresh
impetus within the past eighteen
months. Years before the war La-
Fayette was noted all over the coun
try as a great place for schools aim
colleges. The Baptist Female Col
lege in this place is an institution
which has for long years pact re
flected the true sentiment of the good
}>eople of that deuomina.iou of tins
entire section of the State. It is the
property of the Liberty Baptist Asso
ciation, aud its course is mainly di
rected by that body. The building is
large and commodious, with accom
modations for two hundred scholars.
At present it is in a nourishing con
dition, under the care of Prof. Brooks,
as President. The new institution
of learning, of wL.ch the Methodists
have control, has only been m opera
tion for eight.eu mouths. It is at
present known as Shapard Hall, aud
is presided over by Mrs. Henderson,
a most estimable and worthy lad\,
and one who has had years of expe
rience in tins line of business, felie is
the wife of Rev. Mr. Henderson, the
pastor of the,several churches of that
denomination iu this section. This
institution is one of the many pets,
of the kind, scattered throughout the
South, of Bishop Geoige F. Pierce, of
your !Sta*e. Mrs. Henderson's school
is the pride and glory of the place,
conducted, as it is, upon the most en
lightened and progressive principles.
As before stated, she brought to this
section a record for eminence and
success in her line rarely possessed
b} teachers in oar own section. With
an indomitable will aud unflagging
perseverance, she has succeeded from
a small and insignificant beginning
of a year and a half ago iu establish-’
ing oue of the most flourishing lennile
seminaries of learning to be found in
the South. ISlie is aided aud seconded
iu her efforts by people of all denomi
nations in this section, as au enter
prise of genuine merit, and one upon
which all could unite and encourage
as an adjunct to society and intelli
gence. To-day a meeting of the
friends of education took place at the
Hall, when it was resolved to erect,
at once, a budding sufficiently large
and capacious to accommodate tlie
increased demand of applicants for
membership. When it is considered
what a fine, healthy place LaFayette
is lor schools, auu the superior ad
vantages possessed over all other
towns for this purpose, it is no won
der that the staunch and solid men
of the section promptly come forward
with their means to aid in re
building the waste places ol
our beloved State. The present
week is Commencement at the Hall,
aud the exercises, so fur as your cor
respondent has been able to witness,
were of the most satisfactory descrip
tion. Here are misses and young
iadies front all parts of the State, and
especially from the lower tier of
counties, and Mrs. Henderson ia daily
iu receipt ol letters from applicants
from Mobile, Montgomery, aud the
malarial sections, for board and col
lege privileges. The town is accessi
ble by railroad, which has daily con
nections at Opelika. For refinement
of her citizens, purity of air, best of
water and church conveniences, she
stands unrivalled by anv town in the
South, and is bound lit no distant
day to occupy an enviable position as
a center of learning ana education.
Otherwise, and at this particular
time, it bears a strong resemblance to
other and bigger places. Tne scar
city of money and dullness of trade
have their effects. But a redeeming
quality in the composition of the cit
izens is the ease and apparent indif
ference with which the stringency of
the season is cunumplated. Money
they have not; their wants are few
ana easily satisfied; Jit honesty of pur
pose and probity of character of each
individual of the community is well
understood by his neighbor, and no
entangling law suns for debt encum
ber the civil dockets, Irom tnr simple
fact that the entire community en
deavor, by uprightness and fair deal
ings, to avoid such annoyances.
Uu Saturday this county lost cue
of her oluest and most respected citi
zens, Gol. Toliver Towles. Oid age
and its cons 'quent attendants have

of your leaders in different parts of

A most remarkable epidemic for
the weather aud season lias broken
out iu this section, and is of a most
malignant type. 1 mean the matri
monial fever. In this immediate vi
cinity no less than a dozen marriages
have" and will take place within the
spaee of a few weeks. Why this busi
ness at this unusual season is rather
strange. What, with love an'l the
honeymoon, aud an unusual good crop
of blackberries, the harvest may be
safely reached, after which a heavy
draft on Providence may lie expected.
The continuance of heavy rams all
over this section have given the corn
and other crops au imjietus which is
likely to result iu splendid crops.
The morbid appetite of about rive
thousand of the natives was grutil d
some lew days since by the execution
of a negro murdeier, who was hung
in public ard in full view jf half the
j c-ridences in town. The horrible
drama was enacted right before the
eyes of the public, who were almost
compelled to witness it in all of its
hideousness ami debasing asj*ects.
This relic of the past, this outrage
upon civilization—a public hanging—
is a sad and mournful commentary
upon the so-ca’led progressive ideas
of the turns, and its repetition would
be loudly condemned by the purer and
better class of the citizens. If people
are to be hung, let it be done in pri
vate, and save the more decent por
