J'he Herald of Wednesday announces the
dissolution of the “ Sweatna.ui and Scott
Combination Troupe,” and recommends the
parties at variance to reconsider the matter
a id ‘don't do it.' but keep their organization
intact. Were it not too late, we would hearti
ly second the friendly advice of our clever
neighbor ; but, as they “have gone and done
it.” and the concern is now collapsed, we
have nothing to say. We are much pleased,
however, to be able to state that the talent
of the parties in question is not to remain
idle, and that the gentlemanly and enter
prising Manager of our 1 lieatre has eth-cied
an engagement with the leading male mem
bers ol the late company, Mr. M. Aiusley
Scott, Mr. Addison Hyman, and Mi M. J.
Howard, who will have the honor of again
appearing before their many friends, com
mencing on Monday evening next, and con
tinuing lor a -hurt season, at the expiration
of which they contemplate returning to the
North. Success attend them.
l'he performances of these gentlemen, in
conjunction witti Col. Taggart's excellent
Dramatic Company, under the supervision
of so experienced and popular an actor and
gentleman as Mr. A. H. Davenport, will
render the entertainments at this establish
ment more attractive than anything hereto
fore ottered in Savannah, and will most cer
tainly insure success and protit to all in
Mr. W. P. Sweatnam, we are informed,
will in a short time open St. Andrew's Hall,
for a series of variety entertainments. The
Hall is to be thoroughly renovated and im
proved. stage and scenery are to be gotten
up in style and splendor, and such other
arrangemunts as may be necessary for the
atrical purposes. We wish Mr. Sweatnam
all good luck in his undertaking, and be
lieve he deserves it. *
The word lady is an abbreviation of the
Saxon Laffday , which signifies lireadgiver.
The mistress of a manor, at a time when af
fluent families resided constantly at their
country mansions, was accustomed, once a
week or oftener, to distribute among the
poor a certain quantity of bread. She bes
towed the boon with her own hands, and
made the hearts of the needy glad by the
soil words and gentle amenities which ac
companied her benevolence. The widow
aid the orphan “rose up and called her
blessed ’ —the destitute and atHicted re
counted her praises—all classes of the poor
embalmed her in their affections as the Laff
day—xhc gi\er of bread and the dispenser
of comfort—a sort of ministering angel in a
kworld ot sorrow.

* Most readers are familiar with Moore's
popular melody, sung so many thousands of
times, of winch the following is the first
“ This world is nil a Heetiug show,
For mans illusion gi\ <>u :
the smiles of joy, the tears ot woe,
Deceitful shine, and ceitful How:
There's nothing true but heaven.”
An American writer improves the senti
ment of Moore in the following
This world's /fit "all a fleeting show.
For man's: illusion given”—
He that hath sooth’d a widow’s wm;,
Or wiped an orphan's tear, doth know
There's something here ot Heaven.
And lie that walks life’s thorny way,
W ith feelings calm and even,
\\ Dose path is til from da> to day
By virtue’s blight and steady ray.
Hath something felt of Heaven,
He that the • ’hristian com e hath ran,
And all his toes forgiven,
And measured mo life’s little span
In love to tjrod and luxe to man,
On eattii hath lasted iieaxeo.
The P. lute* atici the Type
Perhaps there is no department of enter
prise whose detai > are less understood by
intelligent people than the "art preserva
tive” —the achievement of the types.
Every day their lives 16.*g they are accus
tomed to read the newspaper, to rind fault
with its statements, its arrangement, its
looks, to plume themselves upon the discov
ery ol some roguish and aerobatic type that
gets min a trolic and stands upon its head ;
or ot some word with a-waste letter or two
in it: but of the process b\ which the news
paper is made, of the myriads of motions
aud thousands of pieces necessary to its
composition, they know little and think less.
S The y imagine they discourse of a wonder
indeed, when they speak of the fair while
carpet woven for thought to walk on the
j rags that fluttered upon the back ot the beg
But there is to us something more won
derful still. \V hen vxe look at the hundred i
•*ud fifty-txvo little boxes, something shaded®
wiiu the touch ot ink\ fingers, that c nnpost;
a printers "case, noiseless, except the
clicking ol types, as one oy one they take
their place in growing line- we think vve
have found the marvel of the art.
Strewn in those little boxes are thin par
allelograms of metal, every one good for
something that goes to make up written lan
guages ; the visible footprints of thought
upon carpets of rags.
W e think how many fragments of fancy
there are in the boxes : how many atoms of
poetry and eloquence the printer can make
here and there, if he only lias a little chart
to go by : how many facts in small hand
fulls, hoxv much truth in chaos.
Now he picks up the scattered elements
until he holds in his hand a stanza of Gray s
Elegy, monody upon a Grimes “all buttoned
up before.” Now lie sets up a “Puppy mis*
| sing,” and now “Paradise Lost” He ar
rays a bride in “small caps,” and a sonnet
in “Nonpareil.” He announces that the
languishing "live,” in one sentence—trails
poses tin world, and deplores the days that
are “evil,” in the next.
A poor jest ticks its way into the printer’s
hand, like a little clock just runn’ng down,
and a strain of eloquence marches into line.
We fancy we can tell the difference by hear
ing of the ear : but perhaps not.
The types that told a wedding yesterday,
announce a burial to-morrow—perhapS in
the self-same letters. -
They are the elements to make a worn of.
I hose types are n world with somethnig in
it as beautiful as spring, as rich as siwmner,
and as grand as autumn; flowers that frost
cannot wilt, fruit that shall ripen for all
j Always speak the truth. Live up to your
j engagements. Make few promises. Live
| within your income.
