BY A BUSINESS MAN. Great Spirit of the Universe—to Thee 1 lowly bow tuv head and bend the knee: Who order’st a'l tilings for the best, forgive My erring wavs and let my spirit live! An atom of this lower world, I feel My iittleoess, nor would I dare conceal The homage that I owe, O (rod, to Thee Who with Thy being liTst immensity. O, what is time ? a thing of yesterday— To-day—'tis all the same; it fades away, Nor stays: like mist before the rising sun It comes, it goes, and has one ceaseless run. I ask, 0 what is life? tbe answer comes, “ Go ask the silent tombs and narrow homes Os that long line of buried ancestry, Those dreamless sleepers of eternity.” 0 tell me what is death ? I pause, I shrink, I gaze aroui and, and standing on the brink Ot life’s dark stream, I see a numerous band In hunied transit to the unknown laud. Mystery profound ! Sealed to all mortal eyes, Thv sign is death, thy banner is the skies : Onward tliy march through every age and clime, Till life eternal takes the place of time. j-. -. j-r . lltl - |. r , -i , ,| -| imwsai— Sigiiv oi’ Kleturniiig Reason at tlic Aorlli. Although we see but faint signs of re turning reason at the North, which for the present will be crushed out by the spirit of Black Republicanism, we take pleas ure iu recording the saying and doings of those who are bold enough to endeavor to obstruct the ear of Juggeinaunt, and to ex press their real sentiments in the face of mobs, bayonets and threats of treason. The South will remember them hereafter. Ou the od instant, a series of war resolu tions, which had passed the Senate of Con necticut, came up in the House, when Ex- Gov. Seymour opposed them in a brief speech as follows : Sir, 1 am on this floor as the advocate of peace measures ! 1 will not sanction this war, except so far as it can be waged on constitu tinal grounds. This question now wears a totally different aspect from that which it presented when the President issued his call for volunteers. Then it was for the “pro tection of the capital and the re-possession of the forts.” lam heartily glad that the capital is protected. 1 would protect the Federal Capital and the archives. But noth ing has been done to recapture the forts.— But a movement of invasion has been com menced —an invasion of a sovereign State.— 1 think the gentleman from Stratford was right in saying there is a movement —a grow ing sentiment among the people, iu favor of a peaceable settlement—of an honorable peace ! I go with him, and with all who are for peace measures! There seems to be a radical mistake on the part of many people —they seem to think the South can bo con quered. Sir, this is impossible ! It can no more be done than the South can conquer the North ! There are brave men there as well as here. In revolutionary days we knew something of them. In the war of 1812 they rallied round our flag ami protected our commerce. Now it is not well to underrate the prowess of these enemies—as you call them —though 1 recognize, even in this state of things, some there whom I knew, and who are still our brothers iu heart. This mistake cost Braddock a galling defeat in the old French war, it cost the British many a humiliating defeat in the war of the revolution. Do you think you can secure their loyalty and alfec tion by force ? Two or three sovereign States have been overrun and trampled uuder foot already. You have got a kind of foothold which you call “peace but it is not peace —it is smothered war ’ Maryland is in a vol canic condition to-day ; and the same spirit will rise at all times, in spite of all the chains you can put upon it and of all the ruin that is wrought. You may destroy their habita tions, devastate their fields, and shed the blood of their people ; still, you cannot con quer them. “Even in their ashes live their wonted tires.’’ 1 shall vote against these resolutions. 1 hope Congress will adopt some peace meas ures which shall hold the Jtorder States and draw hack those that have gone out —so that, in some future day, we may have the South again under (he banner of the l uion. S. then offered the following substi tute : u ßesolved , That while we are in favor of maintaining the Constitution of the United States in the true spirit of its founders, and of upholding the Government oiganizedin consonance therewith, we believe it to be the dutv of Congress, now soon to assemble, to adopt the resolutions known as the “Critten den Compromise,” or some other plan of ad justment of similar design, a fair and hon orable termination of the present troubles. And in any event, we solemnly protest againts any interference, by any warlike movement, with the institution of slavery where it is recognized hy the Constitution of the Uuited States, or fer the purpose of disparaging the equality of the several States as united hy the Federal Constitution.” Cov. Seymour’s position was very bitterly assailed hy Messrs. Adams, of Norwich; Wooster, of Derby ; Carter, of Norwalk ; llugbec, of Killingly, and others, and impu tations of “treason,” were thrown out. Mr. Gallagher warmly defended Gov. S. from charges of a want of patriotism’ and applause resounded when he closed. The vote was finally taken by yeas and nays, and the resolution offered by Gov. Sey mour (the Crittenden compromise) was re jected—lS to 178. The original resolution then passed—lsh to 29. * As part of the history of the times, we copy some proceedings of the Connecticut Legislature, before its adjournment. Gov. Seymour’s efforts, it appears, availed but little. A bill was passed punishing treasonable correspondents, etc., with SI,OOO fine. An amendment was incorporated into the hill imposing a penalty of SIOO, or imprison ment, or both, on any person who raises a Secession flag. The House has killed oft’ the bill repeal ing the “Personal Liberty Bill” hy a party vote —121 to 71—hut continued the bill to the next session. In the same way the House defeated the Corwin amendment—l2o to 74. About one million of dollars of the two million war appropriation, have already been expended. The Cincinnati Enquirer has something to say, by way of cautioning deluded fools at the North that they haxo made a mistake. \V> copy; \Ye begin to fear that we have mistaken the extent of the Union feeling at the South. We have been under the impres sion that a sort of terror reigned at the South, which prevented the expression of the Union feeling, and that all that was nee ded to bring that Union feeling to the sur face and make it effective, was the presence of Federal troops to protect Union men from secession violence. The opiuion of some of our observant friends in the army in western Virginia is calculated to dissipate that notion we have been so fondly cher ishing. One of the Colonels writes to a rela tive in this city, that the idea that Western Virginia is all Union is a great mistake ; that nearly every man is a spy, and that the troops are in constant danger. Mr. George I’. Buell, the war correspondent of the Cin cinnati ‘Fimes, says in his last letter: “You must not conclude, because West ern V irginia has supplied for the Union cause some brave and true soldiers, that the Union sentiment is any stronger than it ought to be. But few persons in this sec tion publicly express their real sentiments; but there is a cold formality, a cautious use of language, a hesitation on all occasions to act as guides and convey topographical intel ligence, a suspicious and sinister look be tokening that ‘the heart feels most when the lifts move not.’ The Meadowsville fe male ‘wished the devil had us allthere are thousands of others in Barbour and the adjoining counties that, from the bottom of their hearts, commend us to the Apocalyp tic gentlemen of the cloven foot, but have not the courage to speak. * * * “There are at least fifteen hundred vo ters in this county, but only two or three votes were cast at the late election for mem bers of the Legislature to he organized under the new State of Virginia. The inhabitancc are alarmed at the presence of soldiers, and only a small number ventured to the precinct at Phillippi.” Such information is far from encouraging. If there is such a unversal feeling at the South against the Federal Government and the Union, our prospect of subduing them is not so flattering as it looked some time ago. It always does us good to get hold of an extract from that bold fearless paper, the Democratic Standard, of Concord, New Hampshire. In aftertimes the Standard will be remembered by the people of the South. The extract that we now have relates to the subjugation of a soverign State: “Lincoln, in his proclamation, assured the people that (he war for which he wanted 75,000 soldiers, was to be waged only in de fence of Washington, and for the recovery of the property of the United States. “It is now waged for the conquest and subjugation of sovereign States. The State of Maryland, is, at this moment, a con quered State. She is held by a military force. A military force now occupies the city of Baltimore, and governs it by martial law, in defiance of the Constitution and laws of the Union. What a spectecle is this for American people to contemplate ? llow far are we from an absolute despotism V’ Even in tbe New hamshiro Legislature, there is a show of decency. It is not formi dable enough to overcome the wretched dem agogues who have unfortunately got control of matters there. Still this cloud, no bigger than a man’s hand, “hows that the ,'ancient prestige of the Granite State has not entire ly died out. It appears that ninety-one members of the New Ilamshire Legislature have solemnly protested against the appropri ation of $1,000,000 for arming and equip ping State troops. In their protest they say : “We have asked whether this warcontem plates ie-union ; and if so, in what manner arms are to achieve that object 't We have asked whether it means the desolation of Southern homes, the overthrow of Southern institutions, and the destruction of our own race there?” —Richmond Dispatch. From the Savannah Republican. A Hotui siting Convention. In view of the large number of prominent citizens suggested by their friends for Gov ernor of Georgia the corning term, it has been proposed to hold a Convention of dele gates to be appointed by the people of the several counties without referrence to past political associations, and that such a body be left to select the candidate. We have said but little on the matter of our next Governor, being perfectly willing to let the people manage the whole matter for themselves. We are ready to aid in the election of any citizen of good character, who is competent to the duties of the office. The times require a first rate man, and the people should look to it that such an one be placed in the Gubernational chair for the next two years. He should be well informed, a man of political experience, able to grap ple with the great questions of the preseut day, and unselfish enough to perform his trust with an eye single to the interest and glory of the commonwealth. We have suf fered long enough from picayune and place hunting officials. Howerer the people of Georgia may agree upon such a man, we ex pect and intend to support his election with all the zeal at our command. lleyond two newspapers, which are under stood to share largely in the bounty of the present administration, we have seen noindica tion of a popular desire for the re-election of the present Executive to a third term. Were he all that is clai ined for him by those journals, the argument relied on, if worth anything, would be good for a fourth and a fifth term, and then for life, not only in Gov. Brown’s ease, but as regards all officials. We should then see the eud of Republicanism in this country, and, what is worse, brought about ouly to subserve the interests of personal pre dilections of a few citizens of the State.— But wo need not trouble our readers with argument on this point. An overwhelming popular sentiment is opposed to invading a precedent that isessentialto free government. Os all the Governors of Georgia, from the beginning of the grverument till now, Gov. Brown is the only one who became so wrap ped up in the love of office as to desire a third term. It is an ambition which the people evidently have no desposition to grat ify, and we therefore consider him out of the question, except with himself and his organs aforesaid. As regards his successor, we had hoped there would be no contention in a time like the present, when complete harmony is so essential. We had hoped that the Press, ascertaining the wishes of the people in their respective localities, would confer together I and agree upon some man who appeared to have the popular preference. We believe still that Vta voters of the State ifould be perfectly sat flied with such a course. AU they w'ant is a good man, and they care little for the disappointment of aspirants. Many, however, are of a different opinion, and hold that a convention is the only practicable mode of settling the question. If such be the general wish, though opposed to a con vention at the present time, we shall cheer fully defer to the views of others. The Augusta Constitutionalist of yester day advocates a convention on the 15th of August, and expresses a preference for Hon. John E. \\ ard, of Chatham, over all others, as a candidate. Other influential journals in the State have expressed a similar choice, and if it be as general as we suppose it to be from certain indications, we cannot see why all should not agree at once to unite on Mr. Ward without the intervention of a Conven tion. We have had no political association with that gentleman in the past, but we be lieve him faithful and capable, and no oue will more cordially respond to u general de sire to make him Governor than ourselves. Such are our own feelings in the matter, and we have every faith that the friends witli whom we have heretofore acted politically, will readily discard all prejudice and unite with ns in placing an able and distinguished fellow citizen at the helms of affairs. If we are not mistaken in the confidence expressed above, the old majority party in Georgia have now an opportunity of uniting all the people of the State in perfect harmo ny, and upon a man whom they have always delighted to honor. Will they embrace it, and put to rest all contention and strife at a time when we have a great common cause to struggle for, and should all be of one mind and one heart? We leave them to answer the question. With these observations we leave the whole subject of our next Governor where it properly belongs—with the people. Southern Literature. We clip the following from the Southern Literary Companion. It speaks the true Southern sentiment. We are not only grat ified but amused at the long faces, which are often seen at our post office, when applicants are informed that no Northern papers were received at the post office. Hundreds of our people would stand by and see a Southern paper perish, while patronizing some North ern Abolition sheet. The game is blocked, and we are glad of it. Our people should patronize Southern publications nolens nolens. These are our sentiments. Mr. Editor:—l have read recently, with great pleasure several articles in our papers, suggesting the importance of encouraging and supporting “ Southern Literature.” I think that it is quite time that our gift ed and literary ladies are appreciated at home. It is a patriotic duty we owe to our country. A nation strong in arms may be feared, but unless it is strong in intellect and renown for its literature and virtue, it cannot, and will not, be respected. The True spirit of patriotism, is essential |ly a public spirit. It ignores all selfishness. Its wishes are commensurate with the moral ; wants and necessities of its people. To be a patriot, and live and work for our | selves alone is entirely impracticable. The j Union is a moral impossibility. No greater 1 paradox could be invented, than is contained in the idea of selfish patriot. True patriotism is like genuine religion. It consists not in fashions and in forms, hut ! in demonstrating a spirit, which speaks “ we live for our country.” Great principles are to he avowed mantained, diffused,established. “ God and our country are to he served ” 1 know that many profess, and seem to he 1 patriotic on lower principles, but it is impos sible. “As well might the 9nn-heams lie folded in the curtains of night, wheD the king of day comes rejoicing in the east. Let us, then, do all we can to establish our j indepdnpence in every respect, literary as well as political. It is well known that one of the great causes of our present difficulties, is the want of proper appreciation of Southern intellect. The North has always regarded us as inferi or in talent, taste and refinement. Why? Be cause our literary papers and journals are so poorly patronized, and as to books by South ern Authors, unless they were published at the North where they could be appreciated, were rarely beard of outside the family con nexion of the author. This is known to be true. And the Northern people have regard ed it as positive proof of our inferiority, and hence the intrusion upon our rights and the the present difficulties. But in the lan guage of Mr. W. S. Barton, of Montgomery, editor cf the “ Teacher,” and by the way one of the most instructive journals in the Southern States, one worthy of ten thou sand subscribers.—“ If we have been de relict in our duty, heretofore, let us cease to be so.” Let us encourage our own litcr rary and gifted ladies and gentlemen to write. Let our libraries and stores in the future be filled with home prductions. We have talent sufficient in the South to simply every book that is needed, from the spelling book to the highest and purest style of literature. Then let us say to those who are capable of writing good and useful books, to commence and have them ready for publi cation by the time we satisfy the North that we are their superiors in arms, which we honestly believe will not be longer than Sep tember. We are glad to learn that the Meth odist Publishing House iu Nashville is a large and complete establishment, prepared to publish all kinds of books. We not only hope the church but the whole South will rally to its support. We should be glad to to know if there is a steel engraver connected with the house, if not there should be. We must become iu all departments en tirely independent. What say you, my friend, Mr. Davis? JULIET. [Atlanta Intelligencer. Fine Times for Extortions. —The pre sent crisis is the best opening for extortions and small speculations known in the history of the South. An old lady, long since dead but at one time extensively known about Chatham as “Aunt Sally,” said on one occa sion that “people may talk about their ten and twenty per cents, but as for me I’m a poor old critter and satisfied with one. If I buys a thing for one dollar and sells it for two, that’s all I cares to make.” liecent developments in these regions of the globe seem to indicate that all the “Aunt Sallys are not dead yet. Many there be whom we fear, in the progres of civilization, have slightly improved on the old lady’s program me, by buying for one and selling for three. It is said by Burns that “man was made to mourn.” If Burns had lived in this day he would have changed the refrain to “man wan made to W RtykUc. -VOLUME XXXIX—NO >B ADVICE TO FARMERS. of th accom P'‘shed Horticultural Editor m.v b°““ “'*'"* "' ha * p nP „ r ’ ’-^ n3 . pole, Cucumber, Cab- OdLC, 001*0, l*ottUCo % Tomfitn \( i 1, i Ua, JMdl*. %£"£ tender ol these will require some nursing, but do not let this deter vou trom planting. Do not plant too deep, and be sure to press the earth p.ettv firmly about the seed, either with a plank or the back of the spade. Whenever you can do so always plant immediately after a rain ; and when you eanuof, we have found it a good piau to sow all small seed, like cabbage, turnips, &c., late in the afternoon, and cover eaily the next morning. The dew will soften the seed and aid germination. On account of the failure of the crop, peach frees have eoneeutratc-d all their euergies in mak ing wood. Now, therefore, is a good time for the man of taste to give his trees that form and beautv so indispensable to a well regulated orchard. For the removal of small branches and giving the troo symmetry, wo dieidedly prefer summer pruning, but for a general dressing, we would aiwavs choose the winter, (jive your tree the pvramidal form if you would protect them from the destruction u which they are liable by storms and weight of fruit. 6 We think in dry, sultry weather the experiment of trimming would be “extra hazardous.” Whilst upon this subject, we will commend to our readers some excellent hints given ly Messrs, l’eters & Harden, in their catalogue for 1860. We have had occasion to know something of their success ns horticulturists. Under the head of “ Ifints on Pruning and Transplanting,” they say : The first requisite in plaining Fruit Trees, u to select a good dry soil—if not rich naturallv, it should he made so by the use of well decomposed manures—or, what is still better, virgin soil from the forest. We prefer a thorough preparation of the soil with the plough, to the usual plan ol diggiug holes; the deeper the subsoil is broken the better. A common and fatal error is planting too deep—this iiaa killed more Fruit Trees than anv other one cause. There is a certain guide to go by, and na ture will not allow a material departure therefrom. The trees should be planted just deep enough so that when the ground settles, the collar, (that point be tween the body and root) should be just even with the surface of the soil. The Dwarf Pear,however, forms an exception to this rule ; it should be planted so as to have the point at the junction of the graft, or bud, of the Pear on the Quince stock, about two inches below tbe surface. The tree being planted, the next step is to prune so as to secure low spreading tops and short bodies the object being to protect the bodies from our hot suns. To do this the tree must be cut brick. I pon this point all Southern Horticulturists agiee, and some go to an extreme. After much expe rience and investigation, we have adopied the following plan with our own Orchard, which wo cannot too strongly recommend to our patrons. We prune so as to form the bodies of the follow ing heights: Peaches, Apiicote, Nectarines and Plums, three feet; Apples, Standard Pears and Cherries, two feet ; Dwarf Pears twelve inches. Older trees that have already formed their heads, should be severe ly pruned at the time of transplanting, and if the trunks are too long, the branches should be en couraged to grow out, which they will do rapidly, if the top is sufficiently pruned. Two additional reasons may be given for bead ing back trees at the time of transplanting : find, the necessity of staking is entirely obviated ; secondly, it is impossible to t<ike up a tiee without destroying some of its roots. To insure a vigorous growth of a newly tiansplanted tree, it is absolute ly necessary that there should be a proper balunco between its top and roots, if the balance prepon derate in favor of the toots, all the better. For information in detail on Fruits and Fruit Culture, we recommend to our customers “ Gard ening for the South,” edited by the accomplished and practical Pomologisi, Wm. N.

Union ami Patriot, hitherto a strong war journal, thus touches upon anew danger which is begining to threaten the North ; Are our readers aware that a rebellion against the authority of the Government is organizing at the North—that treason is rearing its ugly head iu the midst of the very party that professes the most determination iu putting down the rebellion at the South ? It is eveu so. Daily attempts are now being made to array tbe army against tbe Govern ment, and set up tbe military above civil authorities. Daily threats arc made that if the war is not pushed forward with more vigor, the ar my will act upon its own responsibility; and that if a compromise is effected three hun dred thousand men in arms will not disband without adtni jistering law according to the code of Judge Lynch. After all the beauti ful prattle about the Constitution, the Union, and the enforcement of the laws, coming from those who have spent years in tramp ling upon the Constitution, deriding the Union and violating the laws, the old, law defying instincts have once more gained the mastery, and revolution is now the watch word. The Government must plunge head long into the vortex of civil war or be trod den under the iron heel of military despot ism. Tim* Northern Proposition for Peace.

The original bill will be seen at our office.— Lou. Courier. CONDITION OF PEACE REQUIRED OF I'IIE SO CALLED SECEDED STATES. Article I. Unconditional submission to the Government of the United States. Article 2. To deliver up one hundred of the arrh traitors, to be hung. Article 8. To put on record the names of others who have been traitorous to the Government who shall be held infamous aud disfranchised forever. Article 4. The property of all Traitors to be confiscated to pay the damage. Article 5. The Seceded State to pay all the ballance of the expense, and restore all stolen property. Article 6. The payment of all debts due to Northerners, and indemnity for all indig nities to persons, loss of time, life, and pro perty. Article 7. The removal of the cause of all our difficulties, which can only be done by the immediate and unconditional abolition of Slavery. Article 8. Until a full compliance with all the above terms, the so called Seceded States to be held and governed as United States Territory. The above is the least that an indignant people will accept, outraged as they have been by the foulest, most heinous, and gigantic instance of crime recorded in history. flox. R. R.
