Yet nntooch'd and on cor rupted
By the' blighting hand of Time;
When the flow Tret and the sunshine,

And hope was in its vigor, then,
And pleasure to its green.

When, the storm of sorrow came,

Of affection dropped away
And Despair came with the darkness,

for the liberties it allows her. There are
such women- the idlers of the ball room,

the softer sex, who might have passed the
first years of youth, without! knowledge of
this passion, which they more frequently
imagine than feel, had "they not acquired

real Sentiment, than do the imaginary mal
adies resemble those for which they are
mistaken ; but the effects of both are equal

This is certainly a strange caption for an ar
ticle relative o any proceedings in i TownR

compelled to use ii, . i-V'ry-
1 1 seeas, that sums low fallow had majried a
negro woman in Columbia -i he ceremony hav
ing been perforjned by a negro preacher a gross
ontrage certainly upon the moral sensibilities of
any commnoity, and one thai was considered of
dangerons tendency frum the fact thai tbe fellow
cvas a Northern mao. Some of our citizens, in
censed at his conduct, gave him warning to leave
the Town, or. be woald be drammed out per
Laps tarred and feathered. He refused to do so,
and they, in connection vith some of the College
Students, went lo bis house on last Saturday
night week, broke in, dragged him from bed. and
marched him up street, where they obtained Tar,
(some say paint,) stripped him, except his pan
taloons, and poured it over him. They then
went back to his house, ripped open bis bed, and
emptibd iiever him, making in the mean time a1;
great noise, blowing horns, sboutin, Inc., and
marcced him ever the budge.
These, so far aV'we'haTe teen able to learn.
are substantially the leading facts. And did we
regard an Editor as a mere news caterer, for a
wonder-loving public, we should slop here ; but
he has higher and nobler duties : one of which
is, to give bis influence, great or little, to the
Support of LAW, GOOD ORDER, and INDIVIDUAL
rights. These, we believe, were all violated,
and it becomes the reflecting and influential por
tion of our community to frown down, in its in
cipient stage, this disposition to set aside tbe
JwsuotJahnd, and j&miLlQMUih-ld.w
We wish It distinctly understood, that so far
'as the low vagabond himself, who was tarred
and feathered, is concerned, we believe he de
served all he received So do we believe that
there is many a man who richly deserves to be
bung, whjneverthe!es9 is permitted to go at
large ; bat we should 33 strenuously object to
any set of meo assunvog to themselves the pre
rogaiive of deciding thai he deserved the gallows ,
and proceeding to execute him, on their own
mere belief that be did deserve it. This, how :
ever, is a legitimate result of the principle acted !
on in tarring and feathering this ma n.ATd"we"
fraVftmhesltatiobld sayttig.'tharitwe pass by
such proceedings without censuro. it will be re
garded a tacit approbation, on the part of this
community, and have no security thai the same
self constituted; court may not proceed to inflict
capital punishment al some future day.
The offence which this man committed against'
roe moral sensibilities and decencies of society j
was an aggravated one, and the fact ot his be j
ing a Northern man reodered such a connection'
dangerous. But so far as tbe immorality of the
act is concerned, he unquestionably stood on
L higher ground than those who are livinz io open;
adultery with remales of this caste. 1 he only;
colorable pretext for the violence used, was the'
.'fact, that his birth-place and education werecal
colated to excite well-grounded apprehension
thai such a connexion would be dangerous. Tbe
premises we admit, bui we deny the conclusion
that therefore a few rnn, (without any effort to
procure legal redress,and wtiboul the knowledge
or approbation of the citizens generally,) had the
right to raise a inub. sel asidv (he laws of the!
Town, disturb its quiet and good order, and pro

The moral and physical advantages of a cheer
ful state of mind, are fatly appreciated probably
by boi few. In the bright sunlight of prosperity,
when friends smile, business floorishes and vi
gorous health sends the warm blood leaping
along our veins, then it is but floating on tbe
smoothly gliding current to be cheerful ii re
quires no effort. Bat let friends prove faithless,
lei riches take wings, let health depart, and then
the man who maintains a cheerful equanimity of
ppirit ptoves bis cheerfulness to be the result of
settled principle and conscious rectitude.
A moping melancholy is alike incompatible
with interest and reason. It drinks up the
spirits and drives to. wretchedness, and even
madness; it sours the temper, and imparts its
baneful contagion through the circle io which it
moves; ii undermines the foundations of health
and lite, and sends prematurely to the grave.
And what goodness is gained by gloomy sad
nesfof spirit? Has a friend proved treache
rous? Why should you allow Im perfidify to
destroy your peace? You are in a better Condi
lion iban yoq were -before; for now you are un
deceived, and the rottenness is unveiled which
before was hidden and therefore capable of inju
Isjnoperty lost? what of that? A manly
fortitude and a cheerful spirit will sustain you,
and either carry you up to your former condition
or render you happy in your present one. If
you have acted hones ly, honorably, hold npyoor
head like a man ; you are worth aa ninth as
ever, and if you act out under trying circum
stances the man and tbe philosopher, your real
worth will be more clearly seen and more fully
appreciated by the wise and good than it was in
prosperity. ,waywith cowardly moping and

Town Council have no such power, being in
trusted with the guardianship of the town, they
should have been consul led, and all the respect a

pretended that the men engaged in this business

graph frus the Liverpool Standard :
The only serious danger that ever rrr

fortress, by an, adequate naval force narr.r
the danger of being unable to withdraw i
the land, is now at an end v and as the easy r
duction of alUhe Syrian fortresses, in sucrt
sion, demonstrate, no city or fort on the sea, t

upon resisting a British fleet for twenty-f
hours ; consequently on coast is any loter i

be8aid to be on the Confines of every rr.3rl;;
