To a Flower.
Yes! I can cherish thee, bright flower,
■right gift from Heaven to this cold earth,
ME For well I know thy magic power
To quell unfitting grief or inirth.
I know thy certain doom to perish,
Know yet awhile and thou must fade,
Know, too, how long thy love to cherish,
That all but nature's changing made.
I*ve seen bright pleasures bud in promise,
And with a’thoughtless, eager start,
Stretched forth a hand to pluck the blossom
And hid it in my selfish heart.
But ah i some unseen arrow flying,
Had snapped the brittle stem of joy,
And at my feet I saw it dying,
The golden bud, a worthless toy.
Yea! ever from my childhood’s hour,
I’v© Eeen each fondest hope decay.
And wondered why no earthlv power
Could make the dreamed oT pleasure stay.
And well I’ve learned why all is fleeting,
And transient as the merning dew ;
It is to bid the heart be seeking
Joys from on high, forever new.
Then let roe cherish thee, sweet flower,
Awhile, and chide me not for this;
I nlucked thee in true nature’s bower,
Where man can read of “heavenly- bliss.”
Thou’rt all on eai th I’ve leave to worship,
For God has said trust none but Me,
And thine’s from Him, the one great purpose.
To mind me of his strong decree.
Columbus, Jan., 1853.
KF* The following verses are going the rounds of the
pgsa. They are quite as applicable here as in the city,
wherever it may be, in which they originated :
If a buggy meet a buggy
Cornin’ down the street,
Ir it right to run together
When these buggies meet?
Brer j driver hw his failings,
They’re but wo uj hit,
But coinin’ up or going down,
Should they drive so fast i
When a buggy meets a buggy
Should these buggies race,
And run over civil footmen
In a public place ?
Let the driver speed like lightning,
Lashing neck and flank,
But let them mind that human flesh
’Aint covered o’er with plank.
The Washington correspondent of the Picay
une, referring to Mr Pierce’s Cabinet says :
•‘The rumor about Jeff. Davis wax net extire’
ly without foundation ; but l believe there is ne
longer any cause for such apprehensions. Now
voile quilt es pour la pmr.'’
There is but one person at the North vrho
vrouid dare to write, and but one paper in the
South that would venture to publish such a re
mark respecting a statesman, gentleman, and
soldier so universally honored and respected by
friend and foe as Jefferson Davis, of Mississippi.
The writer tries to conceal bis sneer in French;
but there are few of our readers who do not un
derstand him as expressing a feeling the very
Opposite of that entertained by every nigh-mind
*<J citizen in the Union. Many of our citizens
may differ, from the political views entertained
and expressed by Jefferson Davis ; but there
does not exist an honest man who ever knew
him, who ever closely observed bis eondust ami
bearing, who ever saw the flashing of his eagle
eye, and the dauntless expression of his noble
and manly countenance, who ever watched his
eareer as a citisen and gentleman, or who re
members the services he has rendered on the
bloodiest battle-fields of our country's history,,
who could experience aught but pride and satis
faction at the prospect of securing such a man
for a Cabiuet office. Nothing but the bitter
malignity of a personal foe, writhing under the
remembeance of deserved punishment, could
Induce the expression used by the correspon
dent of the Picayune.
Amid the most violent conflicts of party, and
and despite an off-hand frankness, which is not
calculated to propitiate foes, Jefferson Davis
has never failed, in every position he has occu
pied, to preserve the respect and confidence of
all good citizens. He is one of those men of
whom the whole South is justly proud, and in
whose defence every true Southerner should be
proud to break a lance. —Delta.

The Muscogee Rail Road.
This Road extends from Columbus to Butler, a dis
tance of fifty miles, wher* it joins the Fort Valley
Branch of the South Western Road- The cost of the
Road and equipments was $651,797 11, or $13,035 94
per mile. The net profits of the Road during the past
year were $7,311 38—a most astonishing fact, as th*
Road was in on unfinished state and disconnected at
either end. The connection with the South Western
Road will be completed during the coming Spring, end
with the Montgomery Road during the next eighteen
months. In the mean time the Girard Road will pen
etrate the rich prairies of Alabama, and vre may from
thenceforward anticipate a glorious future for the oity
The President of the Road, John H. Howard, Esq.,
(to whose untiring energy the community is indebted
for its early completion,) tenders his resignation of the
oftioe he has so ably filled from the beginning of the
enterprise. His parting advice deserves attention. He
recommends that the stock of the Muscogee Road be
merged in that of th® Central Rail Road. The
only objection to this course is, that it wjil destroy th®
control of this city over the Road. This objection, w®
incline to think, ia rather specious than solid. If it be
come necessary to the designs of the Central Road, it
can readily buy up the stock of private stockholder*,
and thus gain a controlling influence in the Muaoogee
Road. The whole history of Rail Roads in Georgia
demonstrates the impossibility of resisting Rail Road
connections. Private interests will yield to public con
venience. Besides, it would be unwise in the stock
holder® of the Muscogee Road to engage in a contro
versy with the Central Road, It will be impossible to

If the Central Road is once in the entire
route to this city, it may be that w* could derive im

Road to the Gulf. We are not ao familiar with this
subject *s to justify us in spanking authoritatively upon
it. We throw out these suggestions in the hops that
they will elicit discussion from batter informed sources.
Central Rail Road and Bankiag Company.
Th© eighteenth annual Report of the President and
Superintendent of this Company is on our table. The
total cash receipt* from Road and Bank for the year
ending 7th December, 1852, are $1,009,801 83. The
cash expenditures have been $745,502 51 ; leaving a
surplus of $264,299 32. The reserve fund is $281,-
Since the last Raport the Company has paid up its
subscription to th* Augusta and Waynesboro’ Compa
ny, and the sam of $58,554 83 on account ‘of tha
Fort Valley Branch of the South Western Road. The
Board has agreed to take th® Eaton ton Road and work
it for $14,000 par annum. Tha Eatooton Raad will ba
finialied by the first of February. Tha Waynesboro’
Raad will be #pened to Augusta by th* Ist November.
The Branch from Fort Valley to Butler, will b* finish
ed by the Ist April, when Savannah and Columbus
will be in conneotieu by Rail Road.
The Road from Opelika to Columbus has all bean
placed under contract, and early in next year the con
nection of Savannah and Montgomary will b* complete.
The South Western Road will be extended to Amaricus
arly in 1854.
Tha business of the Road is increasing so rapidly as
to make it necessary to place 100 mor# cars on tha
track. Fiften thousand dollars will cover all expanse
incurred by the late freshets. The President, R. R.
Cutler, recommends that $30,000 b® set apart, annu
ally to meet the expense of repairs. Fifteen thousand
three hundred and seventy-seven through passengers,
and forty-three thousand four hundred and fifty-nin*
way passengers, have been carried over th* Road th*
last year ; and two hundred and thirty-one thousand
two hundred and ten bales of cotton. The Road has
earned for freight and fare, $945,508 28.
The Florida Legislature—-Florida Rail Roads*
The present Legislature is fully aliv to the great
interests committed to their care, aud is actively en
gaged in the passage of acts and the development of
measures which will elevate the State to her proper
position as a member of the Confederacy, and’ supply
the demands of commerce. On th* 29 th ult., acta
were passed incorporating the “Pensacola and Georgia
Rail Road Company,” and the “Florida, Atlantic and
Gulf Central Rail Road Company.” The first act pro
vides for constructing a Rail Road from Pensacola to
any poiut en the Western or Southern boundary line of
Georgia. The second provides for the construction of
a Rail Road in a direct line through the centre of the
State, from the Atlantic to the Gulf, at some point
west of the Apalachicola river.
It cannot be doubted but that by the time Florida
shall have completed these two Roads, the South Wes
tern Road will have been extended to the junction of
the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers, and that the Sa
vannah and Pensacola Rail Road will shortly afterwards
reach the same point. When these magnificent schemes
are completed, South Wintern Georgia and Middle
Florida will attain to great wealth, and add materially
to the trade of our Atlantic cities.
A free banking law, on the principle first adopted in
New York, has passed both Houses of the Legislature.
Mr. Hjlto.n, the accomplished Editor es the Savan
nah Georgian , in a letter from which we have collect
ed the foregoing facts, says :
The winter in Florida has, thus far, been exceedingly
mild. Several days of last week were too warm to be
comfortable. The gardens are still blooming with flowers.
On th night of Wednesday last, two men, named
John Calvin and Wm. Stains, of Girard, Ala., we are
informed, made a murderous assault upon E, B. AV,
SrivET, of this city, with pistols, Iu the melee, Mr.
Spivey’s son brought him a double-barrelled gun, with
which he shot both his assailants. We are told that
they are both in a dying condition. Mr. Spivey receiv
ed a ball in the hand and another on the head. He is
not seriously injured.
A gas pipe exploded at No. 409 Broome st., New
York, lately, and the coal vault of Edwin B. Clayton
became densely filled with gas. One of the servants
of the house, followed by Mr. Clayton, entered the

severely burnt them both. The servant was in a dying
condition at last accounts, and Mr. Clayton was much
TXe Supreme Court and the Fugitive Slave
The Supreme Court of the United States, in a late
decision, sustained the law of Illinois, which prohibits,
under psnalty, any citizen from harboring or secreting
fugitive slaves. The decision of Prigg vs. the Com
monwealth of Pennsylvania, has been generally inter
preted as affirming the exclusive jurisdiction of the Uni
ted States in the whole matter of fugitive slaves, and
has formed the excuse of all the Northern States for en
actments refusing the use of their jails for the detention
of fugitives, and prohibiting all State officers for assist
ing in their oapture. In the late decision, the Supreme
Court limits the decision in that case to such laws as
obstruct the enforcement of the United States law, and
impede the master in the recovery of his property, and
condemns, in language most unequivocal, all State legis
lation impeding and obstructing the assertion, by the ow
ner, of his right to his slave.
The friends of Mr. llcjnter, who, not long since,
w®re opposed to haviug him go into the Cabinet, says
the correspondent of the Standard, are now satisfied
that he cannot, with propriety, decline, so general is the
demonstration among the Democrats of Congress in fa
vor of his acceptance. Hr, Hunter left Washington
on the 29th ult., for his home in Virginia, and will
doubtless indite his acceptance from that point.
The feeling against the appointment of Mr. Slidell
to a Cabinet appointment, seems to be strong among the
members. This is the result of his very ultra Buchan
anism before the nomination, Senator Downs is much
preferred to him ; they are both Union Democrats.

Last Hours of Walter Scott.
From Donald Macleod’s life of Waller Scott,
just published by Scribner, we take the follow- j
ing passage, the passage of Scott from this world
to th© next
Amid kindest attentions from all whom they
met, or dealt with, they went on their melancho
ly road, and the invalid was placed again in his
carriage on Wednesday, 11th of July. For the
first two stages he lay torpidly upon his pillows,
but as they descended the vale of Gala, the
old beloved scenes aroused him ; he murmured
“Gala Water ; Buckholme ; Torwoodlee and
when they rounded the hill at Ladhope, and the
outline of the F.ildon hills arose before him, his
heart leaped up within him; and when in a few
more moments he saw the towers of his own
Abbotsford, he sprung up and uttered a cry of
The river was in flood, and not being able to
eross the ford, they were forced to take the lon
ger road around by Melrose bridge, and while
within sight of his home, it took the strength
both of Lockhart and the doctor to keep him in
the carriage. Past the bridge, the road loses
sight of Abbotsford for a couple of miles, and
during these he relapsed into the state of torpor ;
but when they reached the bank that looks up
on his homo,his excitement returned and he be
came almost ungovernable.
Mr. Laidlaw was waiting at the porch, and
helped to carry him into the dining-room where
he sat half-stupefied for a moment, and then
as his eye rested on his old friend, he cried,
“Ha, Willie Laidlaw ! O man how often have
I thought of*you!” Then his dogs came round
him aud fawned upon him, and licked his hands,
and the broken old knight sat there caressing
them, sometimes with smiles, but oltener wi.h
tears ; and so he fell asleep.
The next day he was better, and they wheel
ed him in a Bath chair out into the garden, sur
rounded by his grand-children and his dogs.—
The flowers and trees which his own hand plan
ted and trained, seemed to infuse new life into
him, and, when he had enjoyed them for a while
asked to be taken to his room again. So
they wheeled for an hour or so about the great
halfamd library, he saying more than once, “I
have sben much but nothing like my ain house ;
give me% one turn more. - ’ He was very gentle
and lay disown again as soon as his watchers
thought that he had need of rest.
Next morning being still better, the exercise
was renewed), and after it, he sat for awhile in
his great arm-chair looking from the window
out upon the l\weed. He asked Mr. Lockhart
to read to him. \From what book, Sir Walter V*
“Need you ask said the old man, “there is
but one.” Then he listened with gentle devo
tion to thosif sacred words chronicled by the
Beloved Disciple : “Let not your heart be trou
bled ; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In
my Father’s house there are many mansions ; I
go to prepare a place for you.” When he had
heard the whole chapter he said: “Well, this,
is a great comfort; I have followed you dis
tinctly, and I feel as if I were yet to be myself
In reading to him some poems from his old fa
vorite Crabbe, on the third day, it was perceiv
ed that he had lost his memory, even of verse.
Poems that he had known by heart were now
perfectly new to him ; and so on the following
day. But he remembered well all that was read
to him from the Bible, as well as some little
liymns from Dr. Watts, which his little grand
son repeated, standing by his knee. In the af
ternoon, it was on Sunday, after Mr. Lockhart
had read the evening prayer of the Episcopal
Church, he bade him add the office for the visita
tion of the sick.
Monday found him very feeble, and he remain
ed in bed, but revived on Tuesday, and was
wheeled out into the sunshine once more.—
There he soon fell asleep, and so remained for
half an hour. Then starting up he flung the
plaids from his shoulders, and said “This is sad
idleness. I shall forget what I have been think
ing of, if I don’t set it down now. Take me in
to my own room, and fetch the keys of my
desk,” The instinct of labor was upon him, and
he would take no refusal; so they carried him
up and placed him in his old position at his
desk. He smiled and thanked them, adding,
“Now give me my pen and leave me for a little
to myself.” His daughter put his pen into his
hand and he strove to close his fingers upon it,
but the work of those fingers was finished; they
refused their office ; the pen fell from the hand
that could no longer wield it, and dropped upon
the paper. He sank back in his char, and, out
from under those thick gray brows, the big tears
swelled and rolled fast and heavy down his
He motioned to be taken back into the gar
den, and when there, dropped asleep. When
he awoke, Laidlaw remarked to Lockhart, “Sir
Walter has had a little repose.” The poet look
ed up ; again the tears gushed from his eyes,
and he said, “No, Willie ! no repose for Sir Wal
ter but the grave !” Then a little after, “Friends,
don’t let me expose myself ; get me to bed ;
that’s the only place now.”
He nover left his room again. For a few
days lie was able to pit up for an hour or two at
noon; and then that passed, and he lay still
upon the pillows. Then followed some days of
painful irritation and forgetfulness of friends.—
Only once a well-known voice aroused him and
he said, “Isn’t that Kate Hume ?” But the hour
was at hand when “the golden bowl must be
broken.” He gradually declined, and his mind
wandered back to an earlier stronger day.—
Sometimes he seemed administering justice as
sheriff’; sometimes giving directions about his
trees, and once or twice his fancy was at Jed
burgh, and “Burk, Sir Walter!” came sadly
from his lips.
Generally his mutterings were holy words ;
words from the Bible or Prayer book ; psalms
in the old Scotish version, or bits of the mag
nificent Catholic hymns. Oftenest of all, the
watchers heard the solemn cadence of the Dies
irce, and last of all came from those fading lips
“Stabat Mater Dolorosa,
Juxta Crucem lacrymosa,
Dum pendebat Filius,”
“Broken hearted, lone and tearful,
By that cross of anguish tearful,
Stood the Mother by her Son.”
Often he blessed his children and bade them
farewell, and so lingered on until Monday, the
17th September, when the eye grew clear and
the calm sense returned for the solemn adieus
When Lockhart was called from his bed to at
tend him, he said, “Lockhart, I may have but a
minute to speak to you. My dear, be a good man;
be virtuous ; be religious ; be a good man.—
Nothing else will give you any comfort when
you come to lie here.” He paused, and his son
in-law inquired if he would see his daughters.—
“No, don’t disturb them,” he replied. “Poor
souls, I know they were up all night; God bless
you all !”
He never spoke again ; scarce showed any
signs of consciousness, but gradually passed
away. His sons arrived on the 19th, but too
late to be recognized, and so they kept their
mournful watch until the noon-day of the 21st
Then slowly, gentle as ‘the setting of a calm
sun, without pain or sense of suffering, lie
breathed his soul imperceptibly away.
At half-past one “the silver cord was loosed ;”
the mirror, held before the lips, was taken back
untarnished; and the warm sun shone through
the open windows ; and a soft autumnal breeze
just sighed amid the foliage of Abbottsford ; and
the ripple of the Tweed rose with distinctness to
the ears of the mourners, as they knelt arcjund
the couch, and Walter bent down over the jbodv
of his father and kissed and closed his eyes!
