If 'be spectacle of a wniat soul, strup glinpr heroically With the waves of ad versity, is pleasing to the gods, the spec tacle of a great people transfixed with the arrows of misfortune, and bleeding at every r pore, yet tittering uo exclama tions of anguish or of anget and neither losing faith in Heaven, nor in its own up rightness is truly sublime. Such an ex t hibition, grand and effective to ail minds which can appreciate moral greatness the South now presents. If the preccp tions of their enemies were not complete ly blinded by party p issions, they would feel more reverence for the South in its misfortunes, than when at trio summit of its prosperity, it guided and controlled the destinies of this great nation. With communities, as with individuals, it is only the fires of adversity that reveal the true character, and prove whether it is made of gold or dross. To such an or deal has the Son’ll been subjected, and we assert that the result has demonstra ted that it is an essentially great peo ple and will he remembered and admi.ed in history as much for the serene forti tude and noble dignity with which it has sustained the direct calamities us for its brilliant statesmanship in the period of its power • rid influence, and for that magnificent valor in ha tie which has ex t- rted the admiring acclamations of the world. What this South was in the days of her former greatness we] all know. It was she who gave to the world its “one Washingti n,” the man raised up by Heaven for the achievement of American Independence ; the man whose wonder ful energies and capacity combined with the most spotless purity of purpose nd of character were the principal agency in the successful conduct of the American Revolution and the triumphant, establish ment of the reatest Republic of modern times. It was her Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence ; her Patrick Henry whose eloquent voice thrilled like a clarion blast the hearts of a struggling people ; her Madison who illuminated with his wisdom the true principles of the American Constitution, and her Marshall who remai s to this day the unapproachable glory of American jurisprudence. The sagacity of her , statesmen in the national councils con ducted the United States on a career of progress and prosperity unexampled in the records of nations, and the splendid genius of her soldiers in the field crowned with immortal chaplets our military re nown, It was her Winfield Scott, An diew Jackson and Zachary Taylor, who, from the snows of Canada, to the tropic sands of Mexico, gave to the world ex hibitions of the superior martial skill and prowess of our countrymen to foreign enemies which it had ever seen, and it was the consummate statesmanship and all embracing patriotism of her Henry Clay, which three times saved the Union he loved so well from the perds of divis ion and civil war. Th se, the fathers of American greatness, were children of the sunny South, of the great and glorious mother, at whose breast they were nurs ed, on whose hip they first stood erect, from whose lips they first learned those lessons of patriotism, viitue and valor which made their country great among the nations and their names immortal among men. Nor has the South contributed less to the material than to the political and military importance of the nation. The vast domain of the terming and p oduc tive West was given by the South to the American Union. It is no fi ure of speech hut the literal truth she has been the Mother not only of Statesmen, but of States, and those States the most fertile and destined to become the most popu lous and powerful of the Ar erican com monwealth. The wonderful variety and extent of the peculiar productions of her own of cotton rice, tobacco, and nsfv-.j st res, have laid the foundations of American commerce and contributed by far the greater part of the revenues of the uMtiisis Strip from .American pro . and wealth the elements which the i-viuth )>as contributed, and what would -4>naio ? What would have been the Revolution without Washington ? What its growth and fortunes but for the gift of the South to the United States of the richest portions of its territory, and t e commercial manufacturing and national wealth derived from the products of Southern agricultural industry? De prived of those accessories to its great ness, the United States, if it so mnch as exist'd, wovld be a fourth or fifth rate power without rank or respect among nations AH this glory of the South is past, and how does the land sit desolate that was once so radiant with beneficent power! Stripped of four thousand millions of property bereaved of tin hundred thou sand of her children, shut out from the Union which she did so much to build up and enrich, she yet maintains a compo sure and fortitude more marvelous than her pioudest achievements in the council and the field. Despoiled of her earthly possessions, looking hack upon the most dismal blight that ever came upon the fortunes of a people, looking forward to the gathering of sombre clouds thatthret en her destruction, with earthquakes rumbling hen ath her feet, and at her head anguish and despair tugging like wi'd beast no querulous complain drops from her lips no frown of indignation or i patience disturbs her brow; there is sadness and resignation, but notone ab ject glance in her heroic eye. “The Xiobe of nations! there she stands. Childless und crownless, in her voiceless woe, An empty urn within her wither’d hand, When indy dust was scatter’d long ago, The Scipio’s tomb contains no ashes now ; The very sepulchers lie tenant less Os hero c dwellers; d««t thou flow, Old liber! through a marble wilderness, Rise with thy jellow waves and mantle her distress.” First Through Freight from Liverpool. —Ry the steamship North l’nint, yester day was received a freight one of the first, if not the first, that ever came by steamer through from England to Savan nah. Messrs. West & Daniels, as con signees es the North Point, received a shipment of t'oo bundles of arrow ties, way-billed direct from Liverpool here. These.came to Baltimore on the steamer Carroll, hut were directly shipped to Sa vaio ah and arrived here with only one change from steamboat. We congratu late Messrs West & Daniels on the suc cess of their line, and are pleased to men tion this as one <>l the gratifying inci dents of their agency.— .Veita t£ Herald. Good Decision'. —The English bench lately decided at Westminister, that it was a princ pie of common law that a counsellor, in questioning a witness, should address him inf ordinary tones and in language of respect such as is employ Id by one gentleman in conversation with another ; that such lawyer lias no right to question the private business or moral character ol a witness, any further than it is apparent liny abmdutely affect his reliability, or touch the case in hand ; and that a witnees is not bound to an swer questions put to him in an insulting o • annoying manner. Vf.ry well Pit.— -Some one writes botli gracefully and lbrcibly : 1 woul ! be glad to see more parents understand that when they spend money judiciously to improve and adorn the house and the ground around it, they are in effect paying tlu ir children a premium to stay at home as much as possible to enjoy it ; but that when they spend money unnecessarily in fine clothing and jewelry for their children, they are pay ing them a premium to spend their time away from borne—that is in those places where they can attract the most atten tion and make the most display An arr.ijsing story is told of Brigham’s youngest daughter, Fanny, who don’t appeal tiygn strongly on polygamy. Up on being strongly pressed to give herself to a wealthy friend and son-iti law of Brisrliain’u, both by him and her lather, and on various grounds, she said that if it was positively necessary she would consent on the c ndition that she should have as many husbands as her liege lord had wives. That suit was not pressed much further The New Orleans Crescent, in review ing the annual 1 usiness of that city, and when referring to the s gar and molasses production, says, “we have no heart to indulge in remarks en the subject. In stead of being large exporters of sugar and molasses, we are now heavy import ers of these articles.” Napoleon —ls we believe the Paris let ter writers, Napoleon 111 has the inflam atory rheumatism, dyabetes, dyspepsia, Bl ight’s disease, Smiths disease, sciatic gout, aurora borealis, incalculus, calcu lus, and several other things. He was almost poisoned at Vichy, but be mana ged to survive all, even Bismarck’s dose of Prussic acid. An Irishman being in a church where the collection apparatus resembled an election box. on its being handed to him, whispeaed in the carrier’s ear that he was not naturalized and could not vote. SO- The Republican Banner office, in Nashville, was destroyed by the late ter rible fire in that city. SVVMIM-XIT.

S were too big for union, too democratic for liberty and too sordid for patriot ism.” It is very evident that Fisher Ames had not a very favorable idea of matters and things even in his day. In the country west and northwest of Dayton, Ohio, the rats are said to be swarming and apparently migrating southward, an indication of a severe win ter. In many places they are so numer ous that they have not only destroyed the corn, sweet potatoes and tomatoes, but are climbing fruit trees and destroy ing the fruit. Lowndes Sheriff Sales.
