Mr. Philemon Perch, I differ from you
In regard to the impecunious White.
Your story is quite entertaining. *t ; .s true.
And thousands will say that the moral is right;
But. Philemon dear, your father was wrong
In lodging au idle old buffer like him.
Who promised, whenever he happened along.
To settle next time,—that was rather too slim.
The man who repeatedly promises pay,
And never fulfills, yet troubles again.
And sits in your house with nothing to say.
Is one of the queerest of “moneyless men.”

Who promised so well whenever abroad.

Ye philosophers hark! My complexion is dark;
Reflection and silence my character mark.

Long reigned I in solitude, silence and dearth.

But my turban aud sandals are silvery gray.
Majestic my mien, aud my dark form is seen
All sparkling iu gems, like au Alricau queen.
One pearl that I wear is more brilliant aud rare
Thau the loveliest gem iu a princess hair.
My stature is tall, but at seasons I crawl.
Or shrink myself almost to nothing at ail.
Invisibly hurled, I traverse the world,
And o'er every laud is my standard uuturled.
From earliest time I was grand and sublime,
But often am made the accomplice ot crime.
My intellect teems with visions aud dreams,
And wild tales of terror my favorite themes.
Yet sorrow aud pain oft welcome my reign,
Aud eagerly watch for my coming again;

: Georgia said, the idea of a declaration of inde
pendence was the conception of a Southern man,
and the instrument itself was the production of
a Southern mind, and he who enforced, defended
and established its principles was a Southern
man. Why should Southerners, then, not feel
peculiarly proud of it ? It was for the mainte

A Love Affair of John Wesley.^-*- H. Given
sey, in the May Gala.ry, writes as follows:
Sophia Hokey, a niece of the principal mag
istrate (in Georgia, 1736) was young, pretty, and
intelligent. 'Wesley was pleased with her and she
with him. She dressed in white because he
liked it, and regulated her habits by his advice;
he fell sick, and she nursed him. He made up
his mind to marry her. Delamotte opposed the
idea of a marriage; Wesley submitted the ques
tion to the Moravian elders, who advised him to
proceed no further in the matter. “The Lord’s
will be done,” replied Wesley; but he was in a
sore strait. Sophia was naturally piqued and
hastily engaged herself to one William William
son, and the marriage took place March 1*2, in
four days, Wesley in the meantime having vainly
urged her to break the engagement and marry
him. Wesley made this curious entry in his
