Messrs. Editors : It would afford mo

up vital foroo sufficient to write for the
public eye, after the daily dutios and
trials of a laborious, unprofitable, and
often, tbr.pbless occupation. Only they
wh* have experienced 't, turn ktvwW how
pqinful brain labor hepoities, when it is
fitllowed amid the oftteS nnd 'anxietiei
of precarious existence J when the wri

thovghts, which he can uot prevent trom
playing truant to his purpose, and stray,
ing off to the exigencies of his lot. He
cannot (orget himself anti his condition,
struggle as ha may, to portray interest
other than those which procure subsis
tence. How difficult, therefore, it is

First and foremost, let mo heartily
congratulate the nenpth of Middle Geor

rora appears in tho east, proclaiming
the advent of tho Sun of Constitutional
Libetty. The young giant of Democ

bare his arm—he ia doal ng his well
aimed blows from tho Atlantia to the
Pacific ; at and pacific will be theend of his
mission, when Radicalism is dead.—
May that day soon come when peace

But the slime of the traitors may still
be seen throughout the laud. In a let

friend in Savat nah, there is this lan
guage : “The city is lull of negroes—

have not the remotest idea. One Baid,
when asked for whom he was going to
vute, ‘Bnulla*.’ For what office ?
‘PiciUeut,’ fie replied. New Bradley
is a mulatto lawyer from Boston, who
bitd come here as an apostle—sells his
tickets, promising, When elected Presi
dent, to give every nigger *a mule and
forty acres of land.’ He will be elect
ed to the Convention ; there is no op->
position, the whites staying away from

old Georgia 1 But all for the best. I
want the Convention to he what it will
be, a disgrace to humanity. Then will
the day of deliverance come—when the
rest of tho country is disgusted with
Radicalism.” So motß it be.
The whites here take uo interest in
the coming election, nnd but few of the
blacks ; but I suppose tho latter will
vote. The intention is to make Florida
a Radical State. The patriotio wh t:s
will not go to tho polls. More anon.

A Disappointed Wife. A few

that be could do something to lesson his
sorrow, and for that purpose he called
on a lady acquaintance, and requested
to speak a word to heP in private.—
Thinking that she was about to receive
a proposal from him, the lady prepared
to listen with becoming resignation.
“Mary,” said he, with downcast eyes,
as ho took her hand, “you knew my
“It is not good for a man to he alone.”
“Did you ever reflect upon that por
tion of tho marriage service which re
quires couples to cleave unto each other
until death do part them ?”
“1 have often reflected upon it myself.
Now death has parted me from my wife,
nnd I feel very lonely.”
“I should think it likely.”
“I think I must do something to re
store me to her kind consolations, and
the memory of her virtues.”
lie pressed the lady’s hand am) sighs

so suffered a sigh to escape her.
“My dear,” snid he, Bfter a long •
pause. I’ll oo;ae to the point at once.—

“A proposal ?”
‘Yes, I have resolved to write my
who's biography. Now, I have but lit

will correct my manusoript, and write
headings for the chapters, I will givo
you fifiy dollars.”
She sprang from his sido and her
eyes flashed with angor.
She left the room, not being able to
express her.rage. The widower sighed,
•took his hat and went home. He has
not yet published his book.
