The enterprise of the citizens of Savannah
(says the Mobilo Advertiser,) has placed her
ahead of any other Southern city, of any
thing like the same number of inhabitants.—
She has now a splendid line of steamers run
ning to New York—the Florida and Alaba
ma, and a project is now on hnnd to estab
lish a line of propellers from Savannah to
Philadelphia j and, judging by what has been
done, wo are bound to ?onclude that it is
certain to succeed. She is also connected
J 50 with all the ports near her by steam, and
with Havonna by the steamer Isabol. Her
railroads will soon extend her bade to Nash
ville and Memphis, and through those points
to thu whole of the mighty west. Her
prospects nre fino for becoming the leading
port on the Atlantic, of the cotton States, in
spile of the spasmodic efforts of Charleston.
The last trip made by the Florida was run
from New York in 58 hours, equal to 62 to
Charleston bar. Is not this example of suc
cessful Southern enterprise in Savannnh
worthy of imitation in Mobile.

Thoy went down to the ford near the mel

secreted themselves along the path from tiic

Romance and Reality-Sad Reverse of For
Many of our renders, says the Springfield
Rcpuhi.cnn, will remember a scries of arti
cles entitled “Three weeks on a cotton plan
tation,” which appeared in the Republican
a twelve month since, or more. In one of
those nrticles, the romantic history of the
planter, whose huspitnlities the writer so
gratefully ict-alled, wns briefly given. He
landed nt Natchez, n hoy. He had come
dow n the Ohio and Mississippi on a flat boat,
with Itis fnlher nnd his father’s partner.—
There his father died, nnd was buried, and
there tho boy wns left hy the henrtless part
ner, without n picayune. Nnturnlly shrewd,
lie soon picken up business—sold tickets for
the theatre, did errands, peddled knicknatcks,
&c., until he grow up to a proper size for
larger operations- He then become owner of
a dray, then of n small plantation, near
Natchol, then of an immense large plantation
nt Mtlliken’s Bend, above Vicksburg. Here
he went into speculation, and before the
cr.-wh— jf-’37- supnosed himself to. lie
wortli n quarter of n million.
Hitherto his fortunes hud waxed. He
was independent. He then, for the first
time, returned to Cincinnati, and sought out
his mother mid sisters whom he left behind
long years before. He found his family—
who supposed him dead—in poverty, and
provided lor them, nnd then came the re
verse. Tho wife of her youth had borne him
three henutiful childion. These, one after
another, died, and then the wife wns laid in
the grave. An interval elapsed of pecuniary
prosperity, but of intense grief, when he was
blessed with the hand of one of the most
boautiful mid lovely of womankind. Then
came the energy that parried in some degree
tho force of the blow, and he was enable to
retain mid add tn his beautiful plantation.
