CARTERSVILLE, GA., NOVEMBER 29, 1807.
Tiie poem below is as seasonable as
it is beautifully expressed ;
They are falling, slowly falling,
Thick upon the forrs-s side,
Severed from the noble branches,
At heie they waved in beauteous pride.
They are fall ing ir. Ue valleys,
Where the early violets spring
And the birds in sunny spring time
First their dulcet music sing.
They aie falling, sadly falling,
Close beside our cottage door ;
Pale and faded, like the loved ones,
1 hey have gone forevermore.
They are falling, and the sunbeam s
Shine in beauty soft around ;
\ et the faded leaves are falling,
Falling on the mossy ground.
They are falling on the streamlet,
V\ here the silvery waters flow,
And upon the placid bosom
Onward tvith the blue waters go.
They are falling in the church-yard,
Where our kindred sweetly sleep,
Where the idle winds of summer
Softly o’er the loved ones sweep.
They are falling, ever falling.
When the autumn breezes sigh.
When the stars in beauty glisten
Bright upon the midnight sky.
They a-e falling when the tempest
Moans like ocean’s hollow roar ;
When the tuneless winds and billows
Sadly sigh forevermore.
They are falling, they arc falling,
W hile our saddened thoughts still go
To the sonny days of childhood,
In the dreamy long ago,
And their faded hues remind us
Os the blasted hopes and dreams
Faded like the falling leaflets
Cast upon the icy streams.
THE lOUMJ MOTHER’S EES
‘•You look sober, Bella, what’s the
The remark and question came from
Aut t Rachel, who had called io spend
an efiernoon and take tea with her
“ I feel sober just at this time,
•‘ No unusual cause for uncomforta
ble feelings, I hope,” said Aunt Rachel,
the pleasant light which had come into
her face beginning to lade away.
“Oh, no, nothing unusual, lt’slhe
old story with me. There are a few
days in which I am not disturbed or
made to (eel unhappy.”
“Whv, Bella, this is very strange
news; disturbed, and made to feel un
happy everyday? You pain me very
much by such an acknowledgement.
What has gone wrong with you ?”
••Nothing wrong with myself aunt.”
was tlie reply, “but that oldest boy of
mine is growing so self-willed, disobe
dient and ungovernable, that I’m in
half despair about him.”
“I am sorry to hear that, Bella.
Perhaps you have indulged and humor
ed him too much.”
“1 think not. From the very be
ginning, I have made it a rule to re
press, so fir as lay in my power,
everything disorderly and evil; to
require strict obedience to my word on
pain of certain punishment. No, aunt.
I do not think the fault lies at my door.
Edward has a strange disposition. I
don’t know what to make of him
sometimes. He seems bent on doing
the things I interdict. Only- half an
hour ago I found him in the library
with a handsome book lying upon tlie
floor, marking some ol tlie fine illus
trations with a pencil. Once befote I
had punished him for this very thing,
and here it was again.”
“And you punished him again?”
“I did, severely,”
“Where is he ?”
“Shut in a room by himseli?”
“Yes, that’s him pounding' on tire
floor now. Just hear the r.oise lie is
making! And it isn’t ten tninutessince
I threatened to whip him, if he did it
Bella went hastily from the room,
and going half way up stairs, called out
in a sharp commading voice—
“ You Ed ward !”
The hammering ceased in an instant.
“What did I say to you about the
noise a little while ago?”
“Edward !” There was no kindness,
no softness, no motherly love in the
voice that uttered liie name. “Do you
hear me, Sir ?”
Slid no response.
“YVhv don’t you answer me?”
The mother was growing excited.
“Edward; if vou don’t answer me,
I'll punish you severely !”
A sulky muttering now came from
“Don’t let me hear that noise again,
sir, or you will be sorry for it.”
“Can’t I come out. mother? I’m
tired of staying here.”
“No, sir, you can’t come out, you
naughty boy !”
“I will come out !” screamed the
child, with a sudden wildness o( man
ner. as if he had crown desperate ; and
he rattled the lock and kicked passion
ately against the door.
This was more than the excited
mother could endure ; and springing up
stairs, she unlocked the door and
entered the prison room. Aunt Rachel
sighed as she heard the rapidly follow
ing strokes and the crie= of Eow^rd.
“Yor see,” said Bella, as she re
turned. with flushed face and angry
looking eyes, to the sitting room,
♦•what trouble I have got before me.”
Aunt Rachel did not reply.
“I’ve never seen such a child,” she
continued, “and 1 do not know what is
; ,n become of him. He prefers wrong
to right always, and recognizes authori
ty only for the sake of disobedience.
If, in sending him from the room in
consequence of some misdemeanor, I
tell him to go tip stairs, lie will almost
surely go down ; if I had said go down,
he will go up. Always, he is desirous
to gain the interd : ctej object. It is
marvelous, this perversion of his mind.
\ ou don’t know how it distresses me.
There, just listen. lie is pounding on
the floor as I live ! And v. hat is more
lie will keep at it, in spite of threat and
punishment. Now what am I to do
with such a boy. aunt Rachel? I’ve
tried every thing, but it’s of no use.”
“Suppose. Bella, you let him come
down and see me. Perhaps that will
get him out of Itis present unhappy,
state ot tnind.”
“But, aunt,” objected the mother,
“do you not see that lie would then
consider himself as having triumphed?”
“1 am not sure that lie would think
anything about it. He would come
into a better state of mind than tlie one
that is now ruling him ; and this, it
seems to me, would be something
gained. It is in tlie sunshine that
good affections grow, not in storm and
Delia sat reflecting for some time.
She did not like tlie idea of yielding to
her rebellious child in the smallest
degree. Pride and love of rule influ
enced her as much as a sense of duly,
perhaps a little more. In giving up,
site felt that she must experience a
degree of humiliation.
“Forgve him this time, for my sake,”
urged aunt Rachel. "I shall not enjoy
my visit, if he is under punishment all
“Alter a further debate with herself,
the mother left the room and went up
to the room where her imprisoned hoy
was. He was pounding tlie floor
when she turned tlie key and entered.
She spoke sternly The little fellow
started up with a look half defiant.
“You are a very naughty boy.”
Edward set his lips firmly and knit
his lair young brows.
“How dare you pound on the floor,
after I had forbidden it ?”
Edward moved back a step or two.
There was danger in his mother’s eyes.
“Why don’t you answer me when 1
“I couldn’t help it, mother, stam
mered the child.
“Couldn’t help it! Ain’t you afraid
to give mo such an anwer?” and a
hand moved half involuntarily, as if a
blow was about to follow.
“Aunt Rachel is down stairs?”
••Oh, is she ?”
The two little hands came together
with a sound like a kiss, and waves of
sunshine swept •suddenly over a face
that was dark and stormy a moment
“I have a great mind not to let you
see Iter, after all this bad behavior.”
The mother could not forgive him.
Instantly tlie smile went out from Ed
ward’s face, but he looked neither pen
itent nor deprecating. She turned Irom
him as if she would leave him still in
prison ; but there was no sign of weak
ness— only the disfiguring scowl on his
face, that made it so painful to look
“Come,” said the mother, coldly
extending her hand.
Edward advanced with slow steps,
and gave his hand in a reluctant man
ner, as i! there was no pleasure for
him in the touch, and following her
down into the sitting room.
“Here’s that naughty boy.” This
was Edward’s introduction to his moth
“Now, don’t pout your lips after that
fashion,” was added, reprovingly.—
“Kiss Aunt Rachel.”
Edward wauled to throw his arms
ab.’ut Aunt Rachel’s neck, and kiss her
to his heart’s content, but the reproof
and command sent an evil spirit of
resistance into him, and he merely put
up his lips with an air which said to
his mother, who did not see his face,
‘I don’t w"nt to kiss her.” But Aunt
Rachel saw love in his eyes.
“If you can’t behave better, go up
stairs again !”
“Oh, he’s behaving nicely,” said
Aunt Rachel, as she drew an arm
around the boy; and then began to talk
to him in a way that commanded all his
attention. But his mother would give
him no peace. It was
“Don’t lide on your aunt in that
“ Just see, there, you rude fellow,
your leet are on Aunt Rachel’s dress;”
“Don’t twist your shoulders so!”
“ You had belter go away from Aunt
Rachel, you are annoying her.”
“Not in the least,” au*u Rachel re
plied to this, drawing her loving arms
about the pleased child, in whose
bright face she read a volume of golden
promise, if there were only a wise
hand to turn the leaves. But half an
hour did not pass before Edward and
his mother came into direct collision,
and he was sent in disgrace from the
“Now, what Em 1 to do, aunt Rach
el?” said the mother, in a half despair
ing voice. “You see what a self-willed,
disobedient and reckless boy he is.
How he resists me in everything ?
\Yhat am 1 to do ?”
“Learn the first lesson in governing
others,” replied Aunt Rachel, with
considerable gravity and manner.
“What is that?” asked her neice.
“To govern yourself.”
“I mean just what I say ; and until
I you learn to do this, you will strive in
vain with your child. Anger awakens
anger; harshness naturally produces
antagonism; ofr.-repea?ed punishments,
and fpr trival are offenses, the parents
of rebellion ; but love. Bella, quickens
love into hie. There is more true
power lor good in the tender,sympathet
ic tones ol a mother, warm with a
motherly love, than in her most imper
ative command or sternest inter diction.
Her mission is to lead, not to Drive her
children in the right way.”
Aunt Rachel paused to rote tlie
efleet of her plainly spoken admonition.
Her neice had a startled look, but she
made m reply.
“I have not heard you speak a kind,
approving word to that hov since I have
been here.” resumed Aunt Rachel.
“How can I speak approvingly when
lie does wrong? How can 1 encour
age him to disobedience hv smiling
when he sets my commands at deft*
“1 fear, Bella, that you can call
many things wrong that are Gone in
nocently iu part. You follow him up
too close, and scold him too much for
tilings that are of no account. Forgive
me, Bella, lor this plain talk ; but 1 see
your error so plainly that 1 must point
it out. You have forgotten the pithy
adage about honey catching more flies
than vinegar. Try the horey, mv
dear—try the honey. lam sadly afraid
that you are shadowing the life of the
child—shutting out the sunshine, by
which alone good plants can vegetate
in the garden of tiis soul. I have seen
little besides an evil growth to-day,
yet down among the ranky springing
weeds, trying to struggle up into the
air and light a lew flowers of affection
for these as for precious treasures;
water them with tiie dew of love, and
let the heart’s sunshine go down into
the earth around them. Don’t think
so much of the repression and exter
mination of evil, as about tlie growth
and development of good. But, first, ol
all put your house in order. Regulate
your own heart. Repress anger, pride,
self will, love of ruling, indignation at
rebellion—let only affection reign in
} our heart, and thoughts oi’your child’s
good fill your mind.”
Bella sat in a kind of bewildering
silence, and her aunt kept on
“Will you not act upon my sugges
tion ; go to Edward and speak to him
as if you loved him. Let him feel the
love in your voice, and see it in your
eyes ; and, as the magnet attracts iron,
so will you attract him. Forget that
he offended you ; or if you would think
of it and speak of it, be as though you
were grieved, not angry. Love to his
mother will bind him to the law of
obedience, when fear ot punisment
would only impel him to us valua
Bella arose quickly. Sue looked into
tier aunt’s lace, but made no response.
Tears were in her eves as she left the
apartment. Going up stairs into the
room in which Euward had been ban
ished. she opened the door and went
in with a quiet step. The boy started
as si.e entered, and looked around from
his work of marking with a pencil on
the white window sash. He was doing
wrong, and being caught in the act,
expected punishment, or an angy lec
ture. So he put on his usual look of
But his mother, instead of blazing
out upon him, as was her wont, sat
down in a strange, quiet way, and said,
» Edward,’ so softly and gently that lie
could only stand and look at her in
“ Edward,” she repeated his name,
and now with a tenderness that made
his heart leap. Her hands were held
out towards him. Dropping the pencil
he advanced a step or two, looking
wonderingly at his mother.
She still held out her hands.
“ Conte dear.” He was by her side
in an instant.”
“Do you love mother?” An arm
was gently wound around him. He
did not answer in words, he put his
arm around her neck and kissed her.
What a thrill of pleasure went trem
bling to her heart.
“ l love Eddy.” The arms tightened
about her neck, and the little head
went down nestling upon her bosom.
“Oh, I lo' eyoe so much!” The half
smothered voice was full of childish
“Will Eddy be good for mother?”
“I won’t never be naughty again !”
Edward stood up speaking in a reso
lute way, and looking full into his
mother’s face, “If I can help it,” he
added, a little less confidently.
“Oli, Eddy can help it if he will,”
said his mother, smiling encouragement
into his face.
Something was on the lip of the bey,
but he kept it back from utterance.
“What is it, dear? What are you
going to say ?”
Tims encouraged, Edward said, drop
ping liis eyes as he spoke:
“I’ll forget, sometimes, I’m almost
sure I will, but
“But what, dear?”
“Don’t scold me then mamma. Kiss
me. and I will be sorry.”
He cauglit bis breath with a sob,and
his mother drew his head against tier
bosnm and laid her tearful face down
among his golden curls.
When they entered tie sitting
room, Aunt Rachel saw that all was
right with them. She held out her
hand to Edward, who came and stood,
with a bappy-looking face, by h°r side.
Scarcely within her memory had the
mother spent so pleasant an afternoon.
Edward, of course, soon fogol himself,
soon meddled with forbidden things,
made unseemly noises, or conduc.cd
himself in a way that tried severely his
mother’s patience. But she controlled
herself—and it required no light effort
to use honey instead of vinegar—to
speak in affectionate remonstrance, in
stead of angry threats —and instantly'
the troubled waters grew still. She
could not but notice the singular dis
ference, in effect, between the loud,
emphatic and commanding utterance in
which she bad so long indulged, and
the quiet, loving words mow spoken in
under tones. Will then oppi sed itself

Freights os the .M. <i W. Rail
road. — We are gialified to learn that
freights on the Macon and Western
Railroad has increased to some extent.
A large amount of cotton having been
raised on the line of this road, and ail
of it seeking a distant market naturally
increases, to some extent, the business
of the road. Griffin alone ships from
six to eight car loads of cotton per
week, while Forsyth, Barnesville. and
other depots ar.d stations fall but little
below these figures.— Opinion.

elect their nominee in the next Brest,
deutiul contest, and there was no need
to run after or coax any man into

Federal patronage, the loyal wliilw
element ol the South would always
carry the negro population with them,
and thus give the party a base of power
for the next fifty years.
