THE GEORGIA CLIPPER.
Isaiali. 13lli Chap., 19-J2 vs.
BY HATTIE E. SMITH —WARUKNTON, GA.
Proud she sat, as-it were, upon her throno
Queen of splendor—glory of kingdoms—
Aud “the beauty of ajl excellency”—
Haughty Babylon, city of grandeur!
Her rich and splendid palaces towered
In their gorgeous beauty, the envy of
Her mighty walls were round her as
A shield of strength, sheltering from danger.
Like a star she frticflpifJFipher domiuenco
Eclipsing in her all others.
The light of whose glorious beams lit all earth,
And nation's seeing, said “most beautifuL”
Her streets were brilliant with tho pageantry
And glittering pomp of her royal wealth ;
Her stately halls echoed with the sound of
Music and revelry. Noise of viols
And the laughter of her sons and daughters
Made merry her radiant palaces j
And she said in her heart “ none like to me,
Yes, no glory like unto my glory.”
But the “ears of her children were heavy”
Aud their hearts made fat with her luxury;
Their <jyes became dazzled with her splendor,
They heard not, nor saw, nor knew the true God,
But turned themselves to idols and angered
The Most High.
Woo unto thoc, Babylon!
For God’s dread wrath was poured out in thy
ISofure tho bosom of desolation
Thy beauty and glory were swept away;
And thou, Babylon ! ‘'praise of the whole earth I”
Did wrap thyself in a mantle of shame
And sit down in tho dust most accursed!
Gone! all gone!
The moaning winds as they sweep
O'er the lone heaps of fallen Babylon—
And the rolling Euphrates, dark in its majestic
Aud the bittern's shrill cry from gloomy brakes
And stagnant pools, all echo tho sad sound,
All gone—Babylon, the great, is fallen.
On tho mounds whoro its halls of grandonr stood,
Prowling beasts of the desert make their lair ;
Aud when night comes now, on the place where
Onco the sound of mirth and revelry wont up
Till the bright stars paled and set, ono by one,
These heavenly watchers look down upon
Grave-likc mounds, aud shudowy crevices
Os rooky piles, where their light falls in gleams,
Ghastly, ’mid the dreary and thick darkness;
And now, for the laughter of gayety,
Is hoard tho dismal “ hoot” the night osl^
And the hideous cries of doleful
Making tlioir homes whore the palaces stood:
And no man dwelleth thcro ever—no nmn :
Shepherds make their folds fur from the cursed
And wild monos tho desert dwell not uoar;
When dews of evening and night shades fall,
Their wandering steps turn away in fear
From the shadowy inoiAds, for “evil things”
Night falls not on man among the ruins—
Yea, “ Satyrs shall dauee there,” and dragons roam
Throughout all her pleasant palaces.
Oh ! Babylon ! Glorious Babylon !
And nations of the earth say where, oh, where
Is beautiful Babylon ? and they search
But find her not. The shinning star went out —
Yea, sank in no sotting gleam of glory,
But darkness enfolded her beams, and men say
Behold! she has fallen, she has fallen.
MOSES,. THE SASSY,
BY ARTEMUS WARD.
My story opens in the classic prpsinks of
Busting. In the parlor of an aristocratic
manshun of Bacon street sits a lovely young
lady hues hare is covered over with the frosts
of seventeen summers, she has just sot down
to. the Pinnny and is singing the p pu'ar
pees called Swells of the Hotion, to which
she tells how with Pensive Thawt she wan
dered hv the C beet sboatv The S' is
setting in tho liorrison and its gorgeous life
pores in golden meller fluid threw tho
winders and makes the boot.iful young lady
twice as bootiful as she was b 4, which was
unnecessary. She is magnificently drest up
in a Beragc bask'with poplin trimmins.
More Anteck edges & 3ply carpotin. Her
dress contains 12 flounders, brilliantly orna
mflited with horn buttons, and her shews
are moroeker with gold sprangles onto them.
Presently she presses her hands to her
hed or buzzum, and starts up In a ecsited
manner. “Methinks,” she whispers in cla
rion tones, “I see a voice!” A nobul youth
of 27 summers scrapes the mud, from his
butes in the hnwl and enters. lie is attired
in red shirt and black trowsis which last are
turned up over his butes, and his hat be
witchingly cockt on one side of his classio
hed. In zofith he was a nobul child. Crease
in its balmist dase never produced a more
gallantcr herow than Moses. ,
The young lady gazes upon him for a few
periods, clasps her hands together, strikes a
position, and rollin her I’s wildly, like an
expiring infantilo eow, cries—
“ Ha! Do my I’se deseeve my Isitc ?”
“ That frame! them store close ! those
vois! it is me own, me only Moses!” and he
folded her to his hart. “ Methinks I shall
swoon,”sez she, and pretty soon she ration did.
WAEEENTON, GiIMABOH 15,1860.
! A NUT FOR THE MASCULINES TO
Anne Trevor, in the Philadelphia Press,
gives her readers of the “sterner sox,”some
thing to ponder over, in the following spicy
Men are continually talking about women'.’
dress, and ridiculing women’s’ fashions,\j.iel_
having a good time ok it to themselves. You
never hear women making such a noise
about men’s styles; they manage to mind
their own business generally, on such matters
as these anyhow. I break through the forms,
and give you an idea or two that are in my
head just now.
Men talked about hoops unblushingly and
ridiculously, when they first became “tjf.".;
rage.” Ministers in the pulpit, orators OH*
the rostrum, editors through tho papers,
fops in the parlor and boys in the streets,
seemed to think it a necessary duty to cry,
down hoops: they do it yet, and I'll wngcr
if crinoline were entirely discarded, not a
man lives who wouldn’t laugh at the long
figures women would appear in the streets.
To bo sure, I have met some few sensible
men who are willing to acknowledge that
hoop are a wonderful improvement, that
they would uot like to sec women without
them, but tho number is very small com
pared with the other side. Even while the
men do make such a fuss, I want to know if
any one of the sex wears a pair of pantaloons
without some kind of stiffening around the
hem of said articles. At any rate, I see
some men-who would look a deal better if
they wore hoops in their pantaloons.
When ladies wore coats, tight to tho form,
and buttoned to tho throat ala m Hilaire,
men indignantly declared that their styles
were being appropriated by the other sex,
and, at tho same time, every second man
you met was wrapped in a monstrous shawl.
I wonder if that wasn’t appropriating-with
a vengeance. ’
Tlieu they talk about padding, aluMhero
isn’t a vest worn that the bosom isn’t stuffed
with cotton until it weighs more than any
dress body that was ever made. Padding,
indeed! I wonder if they think we women
are ignoramuses because we have tho good
senso to say nothing. I wonder if you think
we keep our eyes shut as well as our mouths.
Not a bit. of it. Don't I know tlmi if tlo’
style Hi Lute* iirPeeiios stftF stocKihg
should be revived, the demand for “ false
calves” would be alarming? To bo .sure I
Anil don’t I know that there are plenty of
men who lace themselves in stays just ns
fight ns any woman ever did, and for the
very same reason that women do that thing.?
I don’t know anything about it, do I? Oh.
no. of course I don’t.
I don't know that men dyo hair, and
whiskers, when the .natural color dosn’t ex
actly suit them, do I ?
I never see. men with tow-heads and jetty
moustaches, do 1?
I don't know that old, gray-haired men

in nppearam-c by turning their gray-hairs
into-“gl,.ssv black,” wearing false teeth, &c.,
do i :
Maybe I don't.
Ladies v.-oar tight s’ ops to make their feet
look small, do they? Gentlemen never do
such th'ngs, 1 suppose. They are never seen
limping along the sircce iu bran new patent
leathers. Os course not. They never resort
to artificial means to improve their beauty.
They never wear woollen mittens all night
to make their hands white. Os course not.
I don’t know anything about it, do iT
What a quantity of stuff it takes to cut

Now, I advise you. men, to keep sTie.ift on
matters you know nothing about. YVe will
have our own way; we will wear hoops until
we choose to take them off: we mean t > wear
coats ala mil'taire t ]nst when we please—
aye, and pantaloons, too, if it suits us. (They
are worn by some married women now, are
they not?) And you, men. had as well hold’

THE SCHOOLMASTER'S IN THAT BED.
A correspondent of tho New York Wueerly
gives the following as one of the many in
cidents that befell a “ boarding round school
1 had been teaching in Macon oountyvji
j this, the sucker State, and this term was
boarding round. One evening after school
one of my little scholars stepped up to me
“ Mr. Jones, father said you would come
home with me.”
“ Very well,” I replied, and forthwith set
out for my patron’s house which was distant
some two miles.

such was his naine-~hnd two. Uenghtenj,the

| had heard so much about them that 1 was
naturally anxiously to see them. It seemed,
however, I w, s t be disappointed. When we
arrived I learned the “ galls” had gone to a
party the other side of the creek ; so I went
to bed, execrating tho luck which deprived
me of seeing them that night.
The night had well advanced, when I heard
one of the girls come home, and pa-sing into
the adjoining room, she warmed herself be
fore some coals which were alive on the
hearth. It seems the old .gentlemen and
lady slept in the same room, but I was not
aware of that. Having warmed himself, she
turned to leave the room, when the old man
spoke - : “Girls,” said he, “ the schoolmaster’s
in your bed.”
“ Very well,” said Sarah, passing through
tho room I slept in, went up stairs. About
an hour had elapsed, when I heard Judy, the
other* one, come. She stood at the door a
long time talking with “ her feller,” then
entered softly. Disrobing her feet, she en
tered the room where 1 lay, in her stocking
feet, carefully undressed herself, and coming
to the side of the bed, prepared to get In.
Now it happened, I lay in the middle, and
! turning back the clothes, she gave me a
j shake, and said in a suppressed whisper:
“ Lay over, Sarah.”
I rolled over, and whipped the corner of
: the, pillow In my mouth to keep from laughing.
The old man heard it and called out:
“ Judv I”

hundred and sixty-six square miles, is said
to be more thickly populated s a country,
than any other in the world. It contains ono
hundred and twenty-five thousand eight hun
dred and sixty-six inhabitants, and exports
twice as much sugar as the large island of
Jamaica. There is a special element in its
population, contributing extensively to this
superiority, it is tho large uuinber of whites
in Barbadoes compared with the general
mass—an advantage whieh Jamaica does
nor, and never did possess. In none of the
West India Islands do tho blacks so greatly
outnumber the whites ns iu Jamaica.’ Anglo-
Saxon energy in Barbadoes, is a chief cauifc
of its prosperity; but the white population
is now so overflowing, that hundreds are
seeking other islands for emigration. Many
are going to St. Lucia and metre to Jamaica.
