In reviewing the history of the fast, ©Ut dul jeet presents to n.iud a theme in exhaustible iu its nature, ami one calcu lated to arouse in our nflections an ever changing sequence, as we persuo our course down the rapids ot time, from the rule of tbe patriarchs through the more haughty reigns of subsequent ages to the present day. Were it possible for us to enter inti a comment upon tho various forms of government, that have engaged the ex perimcutal gonitis of man, it w uld re quire volumes to condense the rnnlti tudenous operations that have been aimed at to establish the same Pru- dence has, at times, exercised her faith ful labors in guarding the portals to power in every form of civilized govern mem, and when her cartful watch was the colicy maintained, the boon of re oompen.e ha* been prosperity and peace. However essentia! it may be for the repose of power to be confined to the deoi-ions of the wise and great, it most in all of its bearing, have a tendency to the establishment of individual libelty, or the very purpose aimed at is wholly subverted. This usurpation of power to the detriment of civil right*, can be traced in tbe features of all tin ee forms of government that are cmly kn iwn to us from the reoords of the past. They too, fl unshed and b ias’ed of universal empire and perpetual dominion, though the requiem of departed worth has sighed for centuries over their mouldering mon urneo'B It is not altogether the vo£ populi that must, be preserved through out to insure the growing success of na tional greatness, or to secure the «vcd tenor of civil liberty. While such i« an ingredient of public trust, it should still he the carefully ob served power of and cerning minds, and repose where discretion could mark its guarded course. The Republic of Ali ens sunk under the weight of universal suffrage, from tho very fact of power beiDg reposod where designing dema gogue* could sw-y its influence to the worst of purposes. In our day ar.d country, we too, have the same fearful labyrinth of cam es and effects, to trail through, iu our onward march to the acme of universal empire. Are we better prepared to stem the tide of faction with the multiplied weight of ignorance that now aontrola the ballot, box than those Atheneans, who coul I not have been less refined in their day ? Our once b >astcd land of liberty, we may well aprrebend, is fast declining, when this sacred trust is being the free gift of sectional rule and party animosi ty. No bow of promise spang tbe po litical beaveus, nor are we justified in any hope we may have, that the land ot Washington,’under prist-nt, circimsian ces, will ever enjoy the blessings of lib erty ainiid at, by the venerable patriots whose life time care it was to frame a Constitution for the prosperity of their country. What must be the sequel, in case our broad expanse of country, togethoi wi'h tta maritime resources and its unnum bered springs of vassalage becomes the deplorable wreck of human ambition ? Surely a multitude would be riquirid to keep their mournful vigils over our meuideriug ci ies, to fulfill the humble mission of Marius, who watched in grief, till the lamp of life expired, over ti e mins of Carthage. May our destiny be shaped by that overruling Power, whose might can sway the billows of the angry deep, and who can alike, command the surges of passion to cease.

Our Georgia carpet-baggers could hardly be induced to embark in such ao enterprise. They much prefer sneakiog about the negro-kitchens of our cities and swind ling the freedmen out of what little they have got. It’s a much safer bus ißpss than fighting indians.— Sap.

Mr. Editor: —Since lnw men uro in high places, and their mushroom growtL hiving knocked our nuro prac ical and better informed coinple ely out of the pod ical ring, and left putii tistn st*oil ing on the verge of the grate, to which tho democratic Convention of July con signed slavery and Heccssion.

No country, therefore, can be in a con dition truly prosperous without a fl >ur ishing agriculture. To contribute to wards the advancement of this all im pnrtant branch of our politically ac cursed country, would be more glory to y.ur humble contributor thau to be grand Tycoon of all tbe “b aok and tau” assemblage in t be Southern Statvs. The iinpoitauce of agriculture to all the sub stantial ititercst of maukiud, is so fully reoogn x and by every ons, that it would be piesumptioo in myself to expatiate on the attention to which it is entitled, or to iusist on the superior advantages which these oouuties, States, or even N»- ti >u must ever enjoy, by whom it i* more skillfully practiced, over those that pay little or no attention to its improvement. To make a long matter short, Mr. Ed itor, we need and want an agricultural society or club in Terrell 1 Let it be oomposed of practical farmers—let them meet oft. n—advauce their ideas —relate their rxpeiience.

Look at old Putnam, her rgriouhural siciety and Fair gave an incentive to every branch of industry in her own and adjoining countiia, that was truly advantageous.

The Whipping I*ost and Pillory. —For some t me post there has been a systematic game carried on by a party of thieves, on the line of tbe Philadel phia, Wi mington & Baltimore Kail road, who enter the ears that s'op at Wilmington, aod spot the pass- ngers who emerge from them to get r -fresh monte and leave their carpet-hags, va lises, &.0., tempoiurily, iu the seats oe copied by tbi-in.

It implies not only keen sagacity, but likewise that sort of libirality which is sure to attract the attention of the trade Many establishments forego the bene fits of advertising from a .-pirit of mere penuriousness. They reason in tms way : “Should we incur an outlay of silty or one hundred dollars or hve hundred dollars, possibly we’ll never get it back—then it would he so much thrown away.” These are timid men always, und properly belong to a past generation.

In 18ii8 her parents emigrated to this country from England, leaving be j hind them an c nly son some ten years of age, who hud engaged us cabin boy i on a merchant ves-el iu the East India trade They landing in New York, when, a few months later, the subject ot tbit eke eh was boro. While she was yet a belpl 'SS infant, both her pa rets died, aud she was sent to the Foundlings' Homo, where she re mained sometime, when she was final ly adopted by a lady utul gentleman, who then resided in E tnira. N. k r .— Os c uise she knew nothing ot her sailor bro iler and she grew up in tho belief that she was really the child of her so tor parent-. At the age of eighteen she married uri iudusoious young mechanic, and set out for the Great West. After traveling iD va rious Mates they finally set led iu Mis souri, where they continued prosper ous sad happy uo il the stoitil ot war curst upon the country. Then her husband, in cumtunu with Die thou sands of his misguided oouu rymen, enlisted in tbe service of the rebellion and was assigned to Gen. Price’s ar my. He solved faithfully during tbe first eighteen umnlhs of the w»r, but was finally ki led in one of the South western engagements. From the break ing out ot die war, the lady of whom we write had lost all trace of her toe ter p>ari nts, owing to the disturbed condit'on of the country iu which she res.tied, and after her husbrnd’s death she removed to St. Louis, where she sought t > maintain horsed by sewing In 1803, she again inurrieJ, and ber husband embarked in business iu M Louis. The last marriage was a tfior ougtdy happy and iu tne course of time two children were born unto them Iho husband gradually tx tended his business operations, so that mucii of h s time was necessarily spent la travelling ai-C’Jt the country, and during one of bis businesst urs he >ls iied Chicago, where be -became ac quainted with a ludy and gen lonian, who, by a iortunale chain of cireum b unces, lie ascertained wore the long lost foster parents of his wife. De lighted at Itiß discovery he had made and pleased no doubt with anticipa tions of the joyful surprise be eimu and give his wdu, the husband at once con cluded bis business with the intention nf returning to St. Louis, amt bringing bur to Chicago lor .no purpose of re uniting her with tier friends, without having first prepared either party for such an event On the night before bis contempla ted Oeparture for home, while c nvers ing with Mr and Mrs. , it bap pened that he was led into a recital of his adventures about the world, and before tbe narrative w*» fiuished h s listeners knew that their adop.etl daughter And married her own brolhtr who, I efore stie was born, had Sailed for East India. Horrified beyou I ex pression, the wretched man lied from ttie house, and from that hour no ti dings of him have ever reached his liiends. This was March last, and a few weeks later the wretched sister wife was rendered comparatively poor by the destruction ot a large portion ol the property left in her hand-, l,y tile Although writtteu to by her stricken ! friends, their letters never leached her uikJ n lew wee ks since site start and for Elmira, ber early home Upo- ber ar rival there ehe .earned tbw atidre»x ol ber foster pat enu, with whom bob at once communicated, giving them ! fu.l details of ber experience wince she I bud fired bade them farewell, Upon eel ting out for ber Western home. 1 heir answer to her letter contained a state ment of the terrible discovery of the identify es her hurthund and tiro her, together with au affectionate invitation to come to them with her children und share tbe r home.
