-oom, handsomely famished, apd seating
herself at a Piano, played “ Home sweet
Home,” with a pathos and feeling that
made me forget, for a while, the fatigues
a-td cares of my journey. A handsomely
bound album, lay on #ard table, >n which
were many choice productions ot the
friendly muse, mostly appropriate memen
tos from her boarding school friends and
village associates. Among others, was
the following, probably written by her
self on leaving the school, where she as
sured me, she had enjoyed many of the
happiest moments of her life.
Farewell to scenes of youthful joy,
Dear early friends, farewell,
Distance nor time, shall ne’er destroy,
Pure friendships generous spell.
I go to seek my native home,
Within the mountain glade,
And while beneath its shades I roam,
Thy claims shall be repaid.
Yes, thou fond friends, whose kindly beam
Entwines thee round my heart.
The Indian maid would lend a gleam,
Pure friendship to impart.
Companions of my happiest hours,
In memory long shall dwell,
A wreath I’ll twine, of mountain flowers,
To grace my native delt.
Each lovely fl -vver in Flora’s train,
A cherished name shall bear,
And as each morn returns again,
These flowers demand my care,
Such pure mementos of the heart,
’Mid savage wilds shall grow,
And each returning Spring impart,
A brighter, lovelier glow.
After playing several of the most fash
ionable airs on the Piano, she led the way
into another room appropriated far her
library, where a small, though choice, col
lection of books, in the various depart
ments of literature, were neatly arranged
in an elegant mahogany book case, and a
handsome writing and drawing apparutu>
placed in different parts of the room.
Her father, once a man of considerable
talent and literary acquirements, had, b\
his long intercourse with the savages and
brutal habit of indulgence in and unkennes9,
entirely vitiated his taste for thecultiva
tion of literature and science, yet fond
to an excess, of indulging this his favorite
daughter, he had made arrangements
for her to receive, regularly, the niOst
choice no works, and in conversation, *
found her well versed in the current lite
rature of the day, as well as in the seve
r and departments of science usual in tin
education of an accomplished female. In
poetry, particularly, she evinced a truely
classic taste, and could repeat some of tlie
finest touches of Byron, Campbell and
Moore, with much energy and poetic fuel
ing; Lalla Itookh and the Pleasures of
Hope, were hpr especial favorites, and in
deed her knowledge of these two inimita
ble poems, was almost inexhaustable; she
could recall and repeat any particular
passage verbatim, to any extent, and with
the enthusiasm of a high wrought imrna
I have never passed a more agreeable
evening. On the next morning, I arose
early, and went out to enjoy the healthful
morning* air from the mountains, soon af
ter the dawn, I met the old gentleman,
who now, free from the effects of the
previous days dissipation, welcomed me
with much cordiality; he recollected
however, my reception the previous even
ing, and apologized for having treated me
so rudely saying he was often indebted to
the goodness of his daughter Charlotte,
for correcting the breaches of hospitality,
which he frequently committed during
the state of inebrity, which he candidly
admitted he was frequently subject to.
I received a very pressing invitation to
spend the day and rest my horse, which I
found the fatigue of travelling through so
uneaven a country, rendered very neces
sary ; 1 gratefully accepted the invitation.
I amused myself, during the morning, in
reading and examining Charlottes draw
ings, of which she had an extensive port
lolio, executed with much taste and ele%
gance. After dinner, at her suggestion,
we took a ramble to some of her favorite
*pots on the neighboring mountain. I
found her annimated iu conversation, and
sometimes deeply tinged with romance.
In the course of my enquiries about her
habits and manner of life, I found she
Sometimes thought of living among the
whites and spending her future years iu
the enjoyments of civilized society. A
traveller from one of the northern cities,
who, in consequence of an accident, had
lately been confined some weeks, at her
fathers house, had became warmly attach
ed to her and made proposals of marriage,
promissiDg, after settling some business at
the South, to return and communicate his
proposals to her father. She spoke in
high terms of his merits, and seemed
pleased with his address.
On the following morning, I bid a hasty
adieu to this hospitable family and pursu
ed my journey.
Qur story must needs pass silently o
vec a space of live or six years, during
whjch time I heard nothing more of the
interesting Cherokee maid. While on
a visit to the City of Washington, in the
Winter of l saw a delegation of
Cherokee Chiefs, transacting business
with thu Government, among whom was
the brother of Charlotte. The recollec
tion of my stay at his fathers, revived in
my memory. I sought his acquaintance
and enquired for his sister; from him I
learnt the following particulars: A few
months aft sr the incidents occurred which
1 have related in the former part of tins
number, the gentleman spoken of, return
ed aud married Charlotte, carried her
home with him to the city of where
they lived for a time quiet ami happy,
when he unfortunately emb: rked in a
commercial speculation which entirely
ruind his fortune. Under the weight of
he became dissipated, am!
soon reduced his interesting family to
wretcheduess and beggary, deserted his
amiable wife with one child, privately left
his native city on board a vessel bound for
oue of the southern ports of Europe, and
nothing since has been heard of him.
Charlotte found means to communicate
these facts to her father, who immediately
sent for and brought her home, where she
is now residing a wretched victim o|
man’s perfidious baseness. Her child,
an interesting little girl, near five years
old, the only tie which holds her to a
world, affording her the most harrowing

3? !!. 1 D Cx E
WILL commence on Wednesday
the first day of n* xt October, and
will continue from day to day with the
exception of the first Monday and Tues
day of that month. We shall then ex
pose to sale in Macon,to the highest bid
der, in conformity with a late act of the
General Assembly :
All the town lots not heretofore dispos
ed of; being upwards of
in number; on the western side of the
river; among them are twelve adjoini g
the river, and a few other choice lot- f r
busme-p. The residue are in more re
tired situations, and generally afford good
building sites in a pleasant and growing
part of the town*
Forty two gardening lots of 10 and 20
acres each ; laid out from one lo one and
a half miles distant from the town in two
ranges around the Western Common.
Abo, twenty eight lots on the Eastern
side ; that is to say, four of twenty, eight
of ten acres, and sixteen of oue acre each.
These last include the place sometim s
known as Newtown ; and will be sold, j
subject to certain leases from the United
SUete-, to expire next January.
■"'ihe residue of the lands in the two
reserves, are laid out in tracts of 100
acres, and fractional parts of such tracts.
Os these, the uplands will be next offer
ed ; the lowest numbers first; beginning
with those on the western side.
On Wednesday the 22d of October
next, at 11 o’clock, A. M. will be offered
it the place of the other sales, the
Bridge nt Macon,
together with one acre of land on the east
ern side of the Octnulgee river, as one of
the hutments; and the privilege of using
so much of Fifth or Bridge street on the
western bank as may be necessary for the
other butmentof the Bridge.
On Thursday the 23d of October, we
shill proceed to sell the
Swamp & Bottom
lands within the Reserves, those on the
western side lir-t; and continue from day
to day until competed.
The particular numbers (hat will !)•
sold on each day cannot be specified; bu 1
it is intended to put up the several kinds
nd descriptions in the order here men
The Reserves are generally well wa
tered, and contain several good mill
seats. The area of the whole cannot be
exactly known until the platting is corn
pitted; but twenty-one thousand acres i
the estimated quantity contained in
both Reserves and the adjoining fractions,
exclusive of the town surveys. Perhaps
no body ofland of the same extent can be
found, that embraces a greater variety
in its surface, soil and timber. Situated
just in that region where the pine of the
lower country changes to the oak and
hi. kory of the upper; it includes both
tiiese growths and soils in most of their
varieties; in some portions entire, in oth
ers interspersed or blended Tracts of
very hilly land, or that which is quite lev
el, or gently undulating, may be had of
almost every quality; either of oak and
hickory, or pine, or river lands; and sev
eral of these kinds occasionally united in I
tracts of 100 acres, and fractions of va- ’
rinuß sizes, adapted to most of the pur
poses for which land is wanted.
From the pressure of the times, and
more especially from the quantity of lands
and town lots that have been lately in
the market, these must unavoidably self!
low. And, lying at the head of naviga-j
tion, immediately around the third town
of the state iu population and trade, there
is every reasonable prospect of their soon j
rising in value.
Purchasers have now an opportunity, ;
and apparently the last that will soon of
fer, of obtaining on cheap and very indul-l
fjent terms of payment, choice situations
or resident . fur bade or fo> fainting.
TERMS OF SALE
Perchasers of lands and lots are to pay
the Commissioners on the day of the
purchase, one fifth part of the purchase
money in cash or current bills of char
tered Banks of this State, and the re-idue
in four equal annual instalments —JVo se
curity will be required.
The bridge wdl be sold on the same
terms; except that the purchaser will be
required to give bond with two or more
approved sureties for the payment of the
four subsequent annual instalments.
