always does, w ith tiu most interesting Iterary pro
ductions calculated to improve the mind aud at
tract the attention of its readers, it is a work of
which the South may well he proud, ana to its
able Editor and Proprietor she is .greatly in
debted for rescuing Loin almost total annihilation
Southern Literatus e. We would respectfully re
commend the Messenger to the patronage of the
Southern public, with the assurance that they can
not be otherwise than agreeably disappointed in
the character and ability of the work.
THE SUNDAY SCHOOL.
It is the inteniion of a portion of the citizens of
Florence to organize a Sabbath School, in order
that the youth of our town may derive the bene
fits which invariably flow from such an institution.
We would earnestly invite the attention of our citi
zens, aud especially tlr ladies, to this praise -wor
thy undertaking, ami solicit tor u,<; same their aid
and assistance. Nothing, wc venture to say,
w-puld be more heueiioial to tl:e moral improve
ment of the children of tills town and vicinity than
this school, —let those then, having the care of
children and the responsibility of raising them,
discharge the duty imposed op them, by seeing
that they attend the e: I .col.
A meeting of t- friends of this Institution \vl!i
be held iuthe Church next Sabbath, at 9 o’clock,
A. M. when all who fed any interest in the matter
are respectfully solicit?;-] to give their attendance.
We would earnestly invite,the attention of the
citizens of Florence, and the surrounding coun
try, especially those more particularly inter
ested in the advancement and prosperity of our
town, to the necessity of bail uiig a Bridge across
the Chattahoochee at this place. It is folly to
-lumber over tills matter, for every reflecting mind
must see, at the first glance, the actual need of
a bridge and the incalculable advantages that
would accrue to Floreyee. Alabama is last set
tling up by wealthy and persevering farmers, the
lands are rich and fertile, and in a few years a very
large quantity of cotton will be made in that sec
tion of Alabama which lays contiguous to this
place, ail of which will, if a bridge is completed,
undoubtedly come to Florence, and w irh it will
come an immense trade, which will greatly ad
vance the interests of our young ami nourishing
town; •but unless this desirable object is effected
this cotton and trade will be taken, almost from
under our very eyes, either to Golumbcs or Irwin
But apart from these immense advantages, there
afe others which call loudly for the completion of
this work. This is the most direct route from
MJledgeville and Mae on to Montgomery and oth
er cities of the West, and could this work be ef
fected there most unquestionably would be a daily
mail fi.om the East, ru liiing directly through -this
place, which would make it a complete tho
rough fyre, and advance the interest of the place
and every thing connected w ith it.
With every thing star mg us in the face—our
interest with a beckoning hand inviting ns to its ad
vancement and pointing to this work, will we lie
still and have every thing snatched from us of a
beneficial tendency ? Will we stop our ears to
the calls which peal upon them? Will we shut
our eyes to the light that shines so forcibly ? We
think not. We believe we have men at the head
ol affairs here, wlio know their duties and w ill
promptly discharge them.
From the Official Order, issuing from Head-
Quarters, and published in another part of today’s
paper, our readers will see that the management
of the Florida War has again changed hands, and
J.esup called home to re-enter upon the discharge
us the duties of Quarter Master General.
We never think of this War but our pride is
humbled to the very dust, and our contempt aug
mented towards those vvho have had the exclusive
control of the matter, and particularly the late
commander. Perhaps the failure of Gen. Scott
should ba overlooked, considering (lie many diffi
culties against which he had to contend: The en
emy fresh and more powerful, the country un
known and many parts never before trodden by
civiliz-d man, and the necessary facilities be
yond bis reach. But for Jesup we can offer no
such apology,—he has ha-J no such difficulties in

But we rejoice, and fed that we have cause to

of Gen. Taylor, who now has the command ol

O TRUTH, iJC W ART THOU FORSAKEN ?
The following Resolutions were p.. *ved at a
meeting t>f the sclf-slyjeni “Republican l ,J -’
party” of Harris county, and published in the Co

“Resolved, That modem Whigism is .a.grand
coalition o (Federalism ut?d Abolitionism —t!:efor-

resolutions to make tire public believe that ai|
those opposed to the “Republican doctrines of

them, opposed to these “ Republican V doctrines,
they, too, must be included in these broad and
sweeping assertions. Wc, then as a part off the
Southern people, who are not only opposed to the
leading measures of the prescut but past admin
istyation of the General Government, would hurl
back this insulting language in the face of its au
thors with disdain and contempt. What! the
friends of State Rights in the South either Fed
eralists or Abolitionists? Examine every tenet of
their faith—pry into every action of the party front

We do not feel disposed to recriminate, neither
will we insinuate that the whole Union party are

that should these doctrines ever be inthe ascen

dynasty that should attempt to infringe upon the
rights of the Southern States, a large portion of
them would very soon be fotujd in our ranks. But
we do not believe this of many of their leading
characters, the powers which a large portion of
them acknowledge to the Federal Government
give to Congress an absolute control over every
State, and if they cling to that doctrine in the
hour of Abolitionism, (if that hour should ever
come,) they will be compelled to yield all uncon

testimony to the truth of this assertion. We are
of opinion it would be b“st for those of the Van

unfounded assertions in relation to their opponents,
particularly those of the South,’to reflect upon
tlie old but trite adage—“those who live in glass
houses should be cautious how they cast stoues.”

Our neighbors of the Sentinel and Herald think
that should Gen. Nelson’s command pass through

awful lessons in their appearance. Well, may be
so; but it strikes us if jn the flush ;‘nd spirits of
their departure, they were ‘unable to frighten him
into the violation of tlie Constitution, they would
stand a poor chance to do it now, after killing all
the Seminoles in Florida. We thought at first,
that theseouen were going where they could do no
good, that there were already more soldiers at (he
seat of war than were of any use, and that Jesup
only received Gen. Nelson’s command into ser
vice, to gratify his feelings and give cause of com
plaint against the Governor. The event has prov
ed vhc truth of our suppositions. They went,
and although mustered MRo service, have, from
the nature of the case, been unable to do any
thing, fl’liis was not their fault, but the fault of
those who unnecessarily dragged them to Florida.
Mr. Gilmer knew all this, and in liis veto Message
recommended them to return home. Was he
not right in this? Are they not sorry that they
did not take his advice? They went on in their
career of military glory, they waded about in tliqi

tlie power of ridicule over each other, b it they
cannot conceive that the idol of their imaginations
should bo the subject of it. As intercourse in
marriage becomes famili i, and the little graces
of etiquette arc laid aside, the idol, though not
less worshiped, becomes Levs sacred. She is not the
deity of the temple but of the household: she istu>
longer the great Diana of Ephesus, approached
at a distance with mysterious rites, but one of
of the r.ares, meeting the familiar glance at ever;
turn. This difference is never felt so keenly ly
a woman, ns when she first discovers that it is j os
sible for her to appear ridiculous to her husband.
A man who differes from his wife and lonsons
with her, rather elevates her self love: but, the
