Wuh the view of securing this strength, it is indispensably necessary, that the con signments should not be too much diffused, but confined to a limited number of houses in Liverpool and Havre, who acting as the agents of all those who will come into this conservative system, will (eel a common in terest, and will tiaturally aid and assist each other umler e/ll anj every contingency. This Icllow Clti/.ans, is hut the brief out line of a great scluv* e,fur the protection ol our Commerce, Finance, and Lx changes, the details of which, must be left lor profound deliberation, concerted action, doaccoui plisli tuis object, vve hereby invite the plau t :rs, fietor, anil cotton merchants of each district or county in the SouMieru .States, and Territory of Florida, together witli the Banks, in each ol the said .States ami Terri tory, to send Delegates to meet ns in Con vention at M aeon, Georgia, on the Fourth Tuesday of October, which will be on tho g2nd, day o that month, that we may carefully consider the import-,mt maiters disclosed in tins Circular We invite a canded oUhni nation of this whole scheme, for the protection not alone of southern interests, but for the security of the commerce of the whole country. Let it at least be tested by patient investi gation, and enlightened research ; if by this plan one third of the entire cotton crop of the country can be placed beyond the pnsi bility of sacrifice, it will give security to the residue, not lay entrenching it behind the go mis of a speculative monopoly but by hol ding it in that sMfe of security, which the just' relations of' supply and demand will al ways in the long riin. establish and sustain in the (rule of a great and civilized country. That no time may be lost, we beg leave to apprise you that an agent, having our confidence, will leave this shortly for Kurope, clothed With am le instructions, to m ii(e such preliminary * niients with the houses in live pool and Havre, w licit ni \y, hy th t s.ncti in ot th * * ’onven tio i. have the proposed consignments. We are aware of the very potent oppo sition, which a plan looking even to sell defence, must invite both at home and tibrmd, as it rails counter to a vari'-tv *'l in tercs.s. too powerful and too susceptible of eon liintion. not to be aroused into active, an I ine.xorih'.e hostility. If our apology is not to be found in. the plea, that we have o right to hold our own property by the means of the credit of our own country, thou we fearlessly sav. tc? me tn nt ler/sf to •i.v * u t' it. in despite of an opjmsition how ever eager and itnpl icable. We have seen in the face of a crop of 1,350,000 Bales, an effort made, and very nearly resulting in success, to coerce tin acceptance of the same prices, which were uici lent to one of 1,800,000 bales. \\ i ought not to rest our security on the ad verse omens of the crop, which is t.oiv growing under the will and dispensation ol Providence, wliicli has al.eady suffered in many quarters from an intense drought, and io o* hers from the ravages of tlie insects so destructive to its growth and maturity. We should look beyond the era of the supply of the last year, and an apprehended deficit during the coming season, 'i lie lessons of economical wisdom belong to alt seasons, and all times, and there is a salu tary truth in the homely aphorism, that those who do not take care of lltemsrivcs. are not likely to be taken care of hy others. We therefore submit this call and invitation to you, with the earnest hope, that you will be prepared to co operaie with us in a meas ure, in which we believe the highest interests of our common country are invovled.

Yv'e present our renders today xvitli the speech of Mr. Stephens, delivered at the celebration in Crawfordville, on the Fourth inst. and wo do so, becaus“ we believe it to lie a true expression of the public sentiment of that portion of our State, in relation to the question of the Presidency. We cannot be deceived upon this subject : Georgia can never be cajoled into the sup port of either of the candidates now most prominent before the people, holding, as they both do, principles and feelings so hate ful and obnoxious to the South. State Rights tnen, ive hope, will never so far for get the motto they have assumed, ns openly to abandon their “principles” in order to. choose between “men.” Those of us, at least, who feel that we are wedded to the doctrines of the constitution, and to the great Republican principles of ’9B, are de termined never to violate the pledges to which we swore upon the altar of Liberty, when >ve joined the great political standard reared by the immortal Jefferson, and sus tained hy our own beloved Troup. So long as we love the name of liberty, and glory in the patriotism and wisdom of our fa'hers ;■ so long as w e breathe the air of freedom, and feel we are masters of our own ac tions, so long, we can neverbe driven into a “choice of evils'” where the election of eith er would boa national calamity. When we feel that we are willing to give up our ob jections to a high protective tariff, and shall heconi’ satisfied of the constitutionality of, and absolute necessity for, a National Bank . when we can give up our love for the South, and grasp in friendship the hand of one of her most ardent enemies, then, perhaps, we may be found among the supporters of Hen ry Clay, the father of the American System. When we become Missouri Restiictionists, advocates of Free Negro Suffrage, and Hart ford Conventionists; when we become wil ling to subscribe to doctrines whose direct tendency is to consolidate tho whole power of the Government in the hands of a few, and feel that we have no longer a regard for the Sovereignty of the States; when we ac knowledge ourselves ready to sanction the reckless extravagance of an Administration, which, professing the doctrines of reform, has raised the expenditures of the Govern ment from 12,000,000 to 40,000, 00(pr.f Dol lars; when we can persuade ourselves to vote for an electioneering President, and one too, wli > while his partizans are trumpeting his Southern feelings, is engaged in court ing tho smiles of Northern Abolitionists; when all our hopes of bringing back the Government to its first principles, nre at an e id, and we li we become reckless of its fu ture prosperity, then perhaps, we too may be found in the ranks of Van Bnrcnisin. bond i (T the energies of our sotijs to procure his re-election. But when tli'*se things take place, “•may our light hand torget its cun ning,” We hope we shall not live to see the day when our love of country shall be come so dead, as to permit our union with such a tnasr of what ? shall wo term it corruption ? Have not the recent investi gations sufficiently prpvfti that there was "something rotten in Denmark TANARUS” Has th p public Treasury suffered to the tune of 50, 000,000 of Dollars, in vain ! Does not the ipiHiiutment of thorough going Abolition ins, to the highest offices of honor and pro fit i*i the gift of the Executive, prove some thing ? That it does, and that the freer eu of Georgia will set their seal of condemna tion on such conduct, we earnestly believe R. M. JOHNSON AND’illS PARTY. Weclipfrom the St. Joseph (Fla.)Times, a devoted Van Bureu paper, the following remarks, to show the motives that have ac tuated a portion of the Van Bureu press to propose the name of John Forsyth in coo nection with the Vice Presidency, and kic., poor Dick from the seal, as useless and uu worthy: The HoS. R. M. Johkros is unwilling to lie coaxed oil a- the candidate of the Republican party, for the Vice Presidency ---He has re| lied in a very hntulKOine Iciiei declining to say whether he is, or is not a can Ji l ite for re-election. —B it we regard him politically as a Drone —tic can do the party neither gootl or harm—lle cannot bring to its cause the vote of a single State,, nor can lie lake one away. At tins crisis when so much depends upon the success ofthose great principles practised by this ndmiuistra tion, every honorable measure should be adopted by the party to ensure success.-- Now ive do think that if the party run VI r. Forsyth, that it will secure tlie vote of Georgia The parlies are nearly balanced in that State,and Mr. Forsyth’s | cisonsl pop iil rity among his political opponents may turn the iloulpliil issue in favor ot the admin istration. Mr. Forsyth ton, deserves well of his friends---1 le has labored long and fa if iifu lin their cause- —lie possesses talent ad tact of a high order, and would make an excellent presiding officer of the Senate. We du not believe t at a better choice cun be made.— St. Joseph Tunis. So far as Georgia is concerned in this mat ter, we would inform our friend of tlie Times, that lie is epiir.ely mistaken in the c'l.natter of her citizens, They can never be brought ioto the support of Martin Van 13 11 ren for the Presidency, run whom you may with him for the Vice Presi dency. For Mr. Forsyth, his political op ponents have no ptedfdictions whatever— he has acted worse than an Arnold’s part to wards them—lie lias betrayed them into the hands of their enemies, and therefore for leited all claim to their confidence and sup- port. Mr. Van Ruren’s friends must think that the State Rights party of Georgia have lmt little firmness and i dtp *ni'ence, o suppose that they, no matter how great Mr. Forsyth’s “personal popularity” may be with them, would sacrifice their dearest principles and rights to support for the Presidency so cor rupt & grov Ting a politician as Martin Van Burep, b< cause a Georgian was run in con nection with him for the Vice Presidency No. The State Rights patty of Georgia, we would inform them are “ina !e of sterner stuff,” than to be thus used and handled a* pleasure—they carry no “personal" feelings with the a to the ballot-box, but, with an eye steadfastly fixed upon their rights and principles, they will sustain the man most likely to carry out and defend them; nn<* such an effort to buy their suffrages, would bo looked upon with feelings of the most sovereign contempt, and they will find, when they hold out to the friends of liberty this elided poisonous cup, that they will turn from it with loathing and disgust. The extract quoted above, no doubt, speaks the mind atid indicates the feelings of the Van Bureu party in this, particular; it would be w'*ll, thnefote, for the fri"nds of State Rights and the Constitution to keep a vigilant watch upon every movement o' t i'si pihlicil jugglers—the great Magi cian is, no doubt, at work in this matter and as he pulls the wires the poppets perform their partsjust as he wishes; and all that is necessary is, to watcli their movements, and the manner in which the wires sire pulled' and no danger is to be apprehended. Geor gia has been caught iti Van Buren’s snare once, andbv the exertions and patriotism of her sons she has been released from that thraldom of corruption, and surely, tier post experience will be sufficient to save her from a similar fate. “A word to the i\ ise is suffi cient.” ••It is the hour, when from the boughs The nightingale's high note is heard; It is tho hour when lover's vows Seem sweet ill every whispered word ; And gentle winds and waters near Make music in the lonely ear.” Byron's Parisina. The calm, clear twilight of a summer’s evening, affordsno where, a more delightful scene for contemplation than on the wild and picturesque batiks of the Chattahoochee.— Poets and travellers may boast cf tbe deli cate tints of an Italian sky, glowirg in toe reys of the departing sun; they may tell of the bright landscapes that stretch out before the eye, in tho rich luxuriance of a southern clime ; they may descant upon the soft congeniality of an atmosphere-filled with music and “sea-born” zephyrs; and in glowing and fanciful kinguage, recall the glorious recollections that hallow that clas sical land. But, for our own humble part, we wish not for brighter skies, or richer sun sets than those that smile upon our own home ahd forest landscapes. The lyre is swept in vain that would persuade us, that beautv is no where to be seen in an evening skv, except where “broken thrones and tem ples,” with venerable grandeur mark the scene, and proclaim the wjrcek of a former glory; f>r we have witne-sed in oor o.«n sun ny land some of those gorgeous exhibitions, with which, "parting day* sometimes clothes the burial of her kiog. But tbourii we love the gold-n beauty of sunset, when clonus aud tree tops are died in its yellow radiance, and the heavens give hack its splendor, yet the calm and peaceful hour which succeeds it, is, to us, more love, Iy stilh ‘I love thee twilight! for thy gleams impart Their dear, their dying influence to my heart; When o’er the harp of thought, the pasting wind Awakens all th* music of the mind. And joy, and sorrow, us the spirit burns. And hope an i memory sweep the chords by t urns.” At such an hour, Ihc Contemplative mind delights to linger with the r .collections that may be awakeued within its recesses, ami fancy, freed from the trammels thrown a round it, by ilie busy pursuits of the day, may take her broadest sweep, up into the empyreal regions. The Soft mu ruin rings of the river hastening along its pebbly bed, like i wanderer returning to his home, falls in entle cadence upon the ear, and imparts a (leasing and soothing influence to the mind, md if. perchance, the strains af music should' reach the ea l- , it seems as if they “Floated along its azure tide —-■ Floated in light, as if the lay Hid mix’d with sunsets fading rays And light ai.d song together died ! ’ But is chh'fly on account ot the glorious associations, that, at this gentle hour, crowd, unhidden upon tlie mind, tlm twilight, on the Chattahoochee, derives additional inter est. Here, on this spot, for centuries gone hy, and until wtl.iii the short period of a few years, the untamed savage and the beasts of prey held unlimited dominion ; aud no sound broke upon the vast solitude, save the wild war whoop, and tile srreams and bowlings of the panther ad t lie wolf; when the majea tic river rolled its clear waters through un broken forests, and the water fowl and musk rat floated in security upon its surface; when might lie seen the light skill - of the Indian fastened to its accustomed moorings, and the solitary path, whiMi wound its way up the steep and lofty IdulF, leading oil' by a trail to some neighboring village, where dwelt the “lords o( the soil” in their primi tive simplicity. By and bv came the white man, and hav ing obtained a foothold on the soil, taught them the vices of civilization wit tin lit its virtues, purchased from them their birth right, removed them across 'he river, and converted (heir ranges and hunting grounds into cultivated fields and farms. But the march of civilization staid not litre; the Anglo-Saxon hive still sent forth its swarms, and the Creek nation became hut a dividing line between two wealthy and powerful Sia’i s. Ai length, liai ing sold the last vestage of their lands, it became neces sary for them to abandon the graves of their fathers, ami witli the tribes that, had emigra ted before them t *ke up their abode “be yond where the Mississippi rolls its dusky fio d.’ 'The Indian character has never been fully understood, only by those, who by contact and intercourse w itli them, have had oppor t niit.e f r tudying it. When, therefore, tin* time ii.uroaclied for their departure for the "Far West,” those wh i knew them best, predict-d trouble nt their hands; but it was unheeded ; and sure enough, without cvi n the appearance of a cloud in the sky, the storm came, and many were the hearth s and cruel murders that were committed be fore the settlors could retreat, or place them selves in a posture foi defence The yen gcance that sl-mps, b it never dio?, was again miiaUnoii j» t!ie savage bosom, to be dealt nut in merciless fury upon the heads of the innocent and unoffending. With a refine inenl in cruelty known only to themselves, helpless babes, and unprotected females were massacred and scalped, to add to their trophies and glut their ferocious hatred to the very name of white. To this immedi ate vicinity, their murderous designs seemed principally directed, and desolation, for a while, brooded over tbe prospects of the set tlement. But they were not onopnosed ; a gallant band of “Rangers” rallied around their gallant leader, and bloody battles were fought in defence of their homes and their firesides, their wives and their children. spirts rushed from all parts ol tlnmWliMiry, to this point which had been made the theatre of action, and the wily and treacherous creatures at length over powered, were compelled to surrender; not however, until valuable lives were lost, either of which could not he atoned for, by all the blood that runs in savage veins. Three years have not yet elapsed smc„ these stir ring incidents were enacted, and yet on tin very s”ot. then a wilderness, alternately oc cupied by white men and savages, a town has arisen, which promises to expand into a city at an early ag". Hugo piles of timber gathered upon tin* hanks of the River, teil that Wharves and Ware-houses and soon a magnificent Bridg , in a slior time will occupy the places where lately tlie Indian's foot has trod, and the Indian’s boat has sailed. These associations and a thomand others involuntarily force themselves upon the mind, while sutveying ”t this point, the mellow scenery of the Chattahoochee, spread out in the gray twilight mists of evening. The fevered excitement of the day is calmed down, and that greatest foe to human hap piness restless anxiety, as lost in the glorious contemplation. A summer evening ramble, 'vh»n tho skies are “embathed in purple hoautv” af all times exercises a salutary in fluence upon li e heart ; tliev#oelh)2B are harrnonized, and gentle aspirations ascend unconsciously from the bosom We envy not the heart that at lliis season of repose, can yield to the multiplied influences ol' memory and hope, and not feel t lie glow of generous emotions. encouraging. The Southern Post has the following : This morning we received seven ad 'itian a! subscribers to the ‘-Post.” The follow ing letter, dated *‘Clinton, July 19lh, 18.39,” pleases us rather more than the others, aud we annex it “To the Editor of the ‘Southern Post,’ Sir.

Such an act is a sufficient index to the principles of any man. We observed in the last Texas National Intelligencer, ufneieen Lawyer’s advertise ments. Judging from the number ol its branches, the Law would seem to flourish “like a green bay tree,” iu li)e sud ol the young Republic. In glancing our eye down the column filled out with these no tices, we were reminded of an anecdote once told us by a friend who had spent a lew days iu an up-country village*, when some ten or twelve unfortunate wights had located themselves for the purpose ol prac ticing Law. It happened that a gatherim: oi some sort or other ha I taken place at the Court House, and our friend being some thing of a wag, amused himself by getting into conversation with those about him who looked most like loafers, ami whose anxious _\ci dejected air gave him to hope fora lit tie sport. Putting on an air of ignorauc and simplicity, and addressing himself to one nearest to him, asked, “if lie was’nt a store keeper? To which tbe other replied, “No Sir, 1 am ati Attorney at Law.” A similar question being put to seven or eight others, the same answer was received raeh t'mc, varied only in the mode of expression and by the addition of an inquirv from one or two, “whether lie had any business in Court ?” Finally, being struck with the appearance ol a tallow faced little fellow who looked like lie was rejoicing at his late iniiaculons escape from some neighbouring graveyard that lie had tenanted for years, our friend approached hint with the hope of meeting for once a different reply. But no; it was a “good day for snaking,” and our quizzical friend had stumbled upon a nest lull ol them. To the question, therc lore, “whether lie liad’nt some goobbers to sell,” young hopeful replied, with a look in which indignation and wonderment were most curiously blended, aud in a drawl "liich seemed to lengthen at every word, “why odd rot votir skin, I'm s t-u-d y-i n L a-w Singular instance <j' attachment between a Sh> cp amt a Dog.
