Let sailors sing of the windy d r ep, Let soldiers praise their armor, But ia my heart this toast I’ll keep— Tha Independent Fanner. When fitst the rose in robe of green Unfolds its crimson lining, And round his cottage porch is seen The honeysuckle twining ; W ben banks of bloom their sweetness yield, To bees that gather honey. He drites his team across the field, W here skies are soft and sunny. The blackbird cluks behind the plow, The quail pipes loud and clearly. Yon orchard hides behind its bough The home he loves so dearly ; The gray and old barn doors unfold Hi- ample store in measure. More rich than heaps of hoarded gold, A precious, blessed treasure; While yonder in the porch there stands His wife, the lovely charmer. The sweetest rose on all his lands— The Independent Farmer. To him the Spring comes dancinglv, To him the Summer blushes, The Autumn smiles with yellow ray, His sleep old Winter hushes; He cares not how the world may move, No doubts or fears confound him; lii.s little flock are linked in love, And household angels round him ; He trusts to God and loves his wife, Nor griefs, nor ills may harm her, He’s nature’s nobleman in life— The Independent Farmer. Northern Opinions.ot the Fu ture oi'tlie Freedman. We have refrained giving expression to any opinion of our own in regard to the future of the negro freedmen, or race, in the South. To advance its condition-; to make it, through the influences of education*hnd Christian teachings, o«e«( progress in civilization and in industrial pursuits ; to improve it in every moral aspect, and to induce it to esteem the Southern white man as its friend, and not its enemy; lias been, and is, our sincere desire, as it is of every sensible, patriotic man in the South. In dark forebodings regarding the negroe’s future, we have not in dulged. We have left that to Northern men —men neither “native,'” nor “to the manner northern stump and congressional speakers ; northern edit ors, who, like northern congressmen, know, or assume to know, more ot the 'negro character than those who have been born and raised with them, and who arrogantly propose to influence and direct them, while, at the same time, they prognosticate evil in regard to their future. The New York Times, for instance, a leading Republican paper, affirms of the race that'they are “a very prolific people, or, at least, have been so while they were kept in slavery ; but ill no Southern State, anil probably in no district, will they beabte to retain political power ’through a numerical majority, after the tide of emigration is turned southward, as it surely will be before many years*. Asa peaceful ar.d laborious part of the population of the South, guaranteed their rights by law, they may live and flourish to the end of time-; btrt a's the e’fie'm’ie-s of the dominant and predominating while 'race, there is nothing in the future for them but struggling and woe, and ultimate destruction.” The white man, then, according to the Times, and this is asserted bv other papers of the “same ilk” and politics, ‘is destined to drive the negro race from the South, aud to “ultimate destruc tion.” But who are the white men that will do this? Is it pretended even that they are to be Southern white men, the ■former owners of the freedmetl, or the descejidauts of their former masters ? Not a hit of it. The white men who are to do this work are the Northern or European emigrants to the South, not those who have been reared in the South and who desire that there shall be no strife in it between the two races. How does the negro race in our midst like the programme which is to drive them to “ultimate destruction,” and to substitute in their place whiteemigrants front the North and Europe? Do not the intelligent among them see whither they will drift, if, instead of uniting their destinies with the Southern white man and cultivating friendly relations with him, they lend themselves to the Republican Party, North, and to those influences which will, as the Time* Says, work their “ultimate destruction?” If they do uot, they must be blind, and ;he scales should be removed from be* fore their eyes as soon as possible. We tell the colored people now, and we warn them in time oi the fact, that the Southern white man is their most con siderate, most disinterested, and truest friend. Whether, as a race, the freed* men will bear this in mind, and govern themselves accordingly, so as to save themselves Iroin fulfilling the prophecy oi “ultimate destruction” which eman ates from more than one Northern Republican source and orator, time will id l—that future which has been invok ed to tel! the story of their '‘destruc tion.” From so deplorable a fate, all good Southern men will strive to save the negio rate. It will not be the fault nf the Southern white man, if the future of the Ireedmen shall be, as it is pre dicted it will be, by Northern men in their journals and in their political speeches.

The couple soon afterwards appeared at Justice Turner’s office, and the wo man made known her “intentions.” The unusual appearance of the “happy couple” attracted unusual attention, and a large crowd was soon gathered to see the “solemn ceremonies.”— When the couple were asked to stand up and face the music, the “groom” tried to back out, and the “bride” see ing there was no other way for it, re marked that he’d “go/ to stand it,” and there “was no use talking about it.” Sh® caught hold of the “doubting Thomas.” and squared him up before the justice, with the order for him to “sail in.” Just then the query arose as to where the fee for the tying of the hymenial knot was to come from. — The ntau said he couldn’t stand the expense. The woman asserted that she had paid for the license, and the man should pay for the marrying. He protested that he. wouldn’t, and that he’d go to Cincinnati to work. The woman caught him as he was slipping awav from the matrimonial noose, threw him down on the floor, and, taking some money from his pockets, she deliberately paid the Justice Isis fee, and then, holding on to Iter “fel ler,” the knot was tied in due form. AH tire while the bride was munching peanuts, and when the ceremony con cluded the floor was littered with the shells. Tfte bride saluted her husband with, “Tom, you’re a liar!” Congrat ulations to the happy couple were fairly showered down, and were char acterized more for their robusticity than for their delicacy; and the bride and groom left “the presence” in a condition of jolity which foretold a boisterous honey-moon. When last seen the amiable spouse shoved her lord into the gutter at the corner of Jefferson and Second streets. —[/Juw- ton Journal, Ist. Rcgistra&tovt ol'Col»r«d Voters in N. Orleans. The New Orleans correspondent of the Louisville Courier gets off the lot owing ; The registering of voters under the Militrry Bill is progressing rapidiy>lh« negroes registering in great numbers, and far exceeding the whites. The scene of registering is rich and funny. Two ranks are formed outside of tfic Register’s office, principally of darkies of every grade, interspersed here and there by a few White men. ’File fol lowing is the process of making voters or conferring the franchise on the col ored citizens ol African decent : Register—What is your name? Colored Citizen—Well, boss, dey did’nt gib me my odder name, but old massa’s narfie was Grandison,and I ’spose I must hab bis name now. Register—Did you ever hold an of fice under the United Stales or under the State of Louisiana? Colored Citizen—Yah, yah ; well yes, boss ; 1 sweeps out an assurance office and lawyer’s office. Register—Did you ever give aid or comfort to the Confederate States ? Colored Citizen—l didn’t gib nuffin. case I had nuflin to gib. Register—Did you ever serve in the rebel or Federal army? Colored Citizen—Well, boss, I did’nt serve neider; but the Yankees want to take me to make brefworks for ’em, so I went to cook for the rebs. ’Register —Then you gave them aid and comfort, did’nt you ? Colored Citizen—Why, no boss; dev gib me all de aid and comfort, for if it was not for dem I’d been dead nigger long ago. Register—Swear him in. A soldier of the 10th Georgia, reg iment was courUmartialed for what he called “playing quartermaster,” that is, for taking things without paying sos them. His punishment, among other things, consisted in marking time for an hour eacli day on the head of a barrel. While he was thus en gaged one day. a comrade passed by and accosted him with, “Joe, what are you marking time there for?” Jee answered as well as the difficulty of keeping his balance would allow, “don’t know, ’zackly, believe its some foolishness about some chickens.” Comrade. “Well they have got no right to make you do that kind of a thing. There’s no law for it.” Joe. “Don’t care whether there’s any law for it or not, Use a doin’ it!” Poor Joe! he has many sympath izers. Law or no law, we’se a doiu’ it. —\_The Land we Love. Mark Twaln’s Last; —Mark Twain says that to “see a lovely girl of seven teen, with her saddle on her head, and her muzzle on behind, and her veil just covering the end of her nose, come tripping along in her hoopless, red buttoned dress, like a churn on fire, is enough to set a man wild.’’ The Democratic majority in Ken tucky is about I’JjOOO.

In a'l the colored Baptist Churches in and around Augusta a great revival has been going on lor some weeks, and many had been baps tized or immersed, This contagion has not confined itself to the Georgia side of the Savannah River, but spread into South Carolina, with like glorirvua results, until the raw material or thal which was accessible, was well nigh played out. On Sunday, however, a solitary subject was found, and he, headed and surrounded by the minister and a sarge crowd, took up the line ot march for the Savannah. On arriving beside the swift running siream, and the subject was almost in the attitude of the eunuch with which Philip rodo iu the chariot, “Here Is the water— what doth hinder me to he baptized,’* when the poor eanidate’a eyes were suddenly opened by the minister pro pounding to him the solemn question* “Are you married?” “No, sir.”— “Then you can never be baptized so long as you are living in illicit inter course with a woman, though you may consider her your wife.” This fell like a bombshell into-an enemy’s camp and set him to thinking, but not wish ing to spoil the show, and jeopard his chances for kingdom come, he soon made up his mind and intimated his willingness to comply with the letter of th« law, and the woman (dressed in « plain calico, and standing unsuspecl. ingly in the crowd to see him dipped; was trotted out before the assembled throng, the knot tied oil the bank, and her husband accordingly immersed with all the rights and ceremonie*.— Chronicle 4‘ Sentinel. Registration. We are pleased lo learn from a spec ial dispatch from Washington to the Cincinnalti Commercial, that a delega tion from New Orleans had an inter view with Attorney General on th» 3d inst., and were informed that the Administration intended to give the disfranchising clause of the Recon struction Bill a liberal construction,s« as to allow a lull regulation. The Attorney General declared that the registers under Gen. Sheridatf had done wrong in refusing to register city, county and township officers, of State, lie is also of the opinion that Congrcs* did net intend to exclude a man front voting who had happened to take art oath to support the Constitution, :uml then participated in the rebellion, un less he had held an office which re quired an oath of fidelity to th* .Na tional Government. —[New Em' A Thousand Chickens Wanted*.—- “We are in good earnest,”' says the Central Georgian, of SandersviMe: “We want one thousand (or thereabout) chickens to feed the numerous JMttlw dists and others , who ma\ be in 'atten dance on the district meeting, which is to meet fiere on the 22nd day of ibis month. We may be allowed (being an humble member of that communion) to say that the fondness of our people, and particularly the clergy, lor Him feathered tribe , has become proverbial.
