*tis madness to defer ! Your heart
are like the pent up mountain
lakes and heaping avalanche, col a,
and solute and silent; little know
ye of the joys of many spark

vales around ; your sources of
truest pleasure are frozen up, and
beware ! when you do descend
from isolation,else you may check

and stream of pure delight, turn

in your chill embrace.
In whatever condition man is

“ Ts lively woman were away,
Whan were his life ? what could it be ?
t A vapour on a shoreless sea ;
A troubled cloud in darkness tossed,
Amongst the waste of waters lost;
A ship deserted in a pale,
Without a steersman or a sail,
A star, or beacon light before,
Or hope of haven ever more ;
A thing without a human tie,
Unloved to live, unwept to die.”—Ett. Shep.

blish the Indian character, for treachery
and duplicity ; and that, their movements
are directed by a master-spirit, a skillful

able, at all times, to bring about a parley

and who has succeeded in baffling our
most consummate Generals, w ith a skill
and energy which cannot be entirely at

situation, which, are great, tis true ; yet,
among all these advantages, we can easily
discern a tact and cunning which reflects
great credit upon their leader. We are

of favor among the press, in various sec

Convention of Southern and South-West

Augusta, on the 3d Monday in Oct., prox

further and encourage the importation of
foreign manufactures, and the exportation
of our own produce, directly to and from
Southern ports, thereby throwing off that
that dependance on the Northern States
which has so long been relied on for sup
port, in this respect. It is an object with
which the best interests of the South
are closely connected, and one which all
Southerners should take a deep and lively
interest in advancing, that the resources of
the South qre amply sufficient, if properly
directed, to accomnli h this important
change,none will deny; and if directed in
their proper channels, bv the zealous co
operation of all concerned, can scarcely
fail of attaining the objecis sought, and
bringing about a new stat° of things thro’-

General Jessup, in a letter to a
friend of his in this place, justly
bestows the following handsome
compliment upon General Gaines.
He says : “ General Gaines is a
pure patriot—he sent me the 6th
Regiment of Infantry at a time
when we had not spoken for more
than ten years, by which I was
enabled to assume the offensive ;
without that timely aid, I should
have been compelled tp remain
on the defence. Few men would
have with the magnanimity which
distinguished his conduct on that
occasion. I shall never lorgct
the act, nor cease to feel grateful
tor it.” Mobile Clmni le.

The charge against Paddy Can
of heading a gang of marauding
Indians near Mobile, and doing
serious mischief to the whites, wc
are glad to find, turns out to be a
mistake. Paddy Scot/, says the
Mobile Advertiser , was the right
ful offender. We deem it noth
ing but justice to aid in correct.*
ing the error into which the first
publishers of the account have
fallen no doubt from a similarity
of names. Paddy Carr was al
ways considered, where he was
known, entirely friendly to the
whites, and is now on a volunteer
expedition to aid in lighting their
battles. Let justice be done him.
