Xortti Carolina and tlie' Tan-1
There are no people in America that pre-
sent such striking contrasts jo. private and
political character, and in all moral intellec
tual and religious characteristic, opinions
and practices, as the North Carolinians and
th- Yankees. North Carolina has been de
risively called Rip Van Winkle. Thi nlck
nam conveys the highest possible compli
mtnttbat could be paid to her. It implies
that she is conservative; that she adheres
to old opinions add practice ; that she is
slow to change her laws, her constitution
her form of government, or her forms of re-
ugion. mac sne reveres ne past, and I
ciings w us minutest nanus, customs and
usages in private and social life, as well as
in political life ; that she does not, for
slight cause, change her men or her meas
ures. She detests innovation : re-.reeu ex
perience, but avoids experiment. That she
has m confidence in the deduction of spec
ulative reasoning, sione in a p,iori abstract
philosophy. Her distinguishing traits,
faith, reliance on authority and experience,
and respect for ihe past, make her the mot
conservative State of the conservative South,
and present her in strongest contrast to the
radical, fickle, sceptical, revclutionary
North. At the North they have faith in
nothing; speculation about everything.
Human experience has no weight with hu
man authority no" respect m them.
Change .and innovation are t'ue order oi the
day wiih them. Change in ! . in consti
tution, in institutions, in politi. v 1 in mea,
in measures, in leligion, in habit costoms,
usages and fashions. They are most con

presents the nearest approach to that char
acter. If so, she is the gieat representative
State of the South; for consenatism is the
leadiiig feature of Southern character, laws,
governments and institutions, religions so
cial and political; as radicalism, .revolution
ism, change, innovation and infidelity are
ol Northern. This is a war of opinions a
well of arms, a war of radicalism and iuti-
delity against faith, authority and cbnser-

She may have some traitors within her

men, who, if they happen to imbibe wrong

slow and hard to change. Old Rip is now
wide awake, and detest Yankees and Yan
kee ways from the bottom of his breve and

j Dera ana the courage of her troops satisfied
us of her loyalty to the cause of Southern
independence. We only feartd that a tew
factious and ambitious men, who misrepre
sented her opinions, might do harm with
out her boundaries. The results of the re
cent election have quieted all such appre
hensions, Richmond Sentinel.

A re-union with an old Mend with whom

brought to mind many pleasant remarks.
One oftbe mostjanghable and ridiculous
was one thsit occurred to Maj. John L. .Mor

evening the Major received from the Post
office Department a largv upply of Uncle
$am's postage stamps, which he placed in a
box in his Quarters. TLe- Indians were
in the habit ol going where t&ey pleaded,
and appropriating anything that took their
fancy, that evening, whilst the Mspr was
absent on the parade ground, an Indian prowling aboutr the quarters, dis
covered the postage stunp. Thee crea
tures weie not very luxurious or fastidious
in their habits of dress, yet they would
wear all the finery they could pile on.
This quaw especially, whether because ol
poverty or ciioice, seldom wore any article
of dress except a few brvw finger and ear
In a few mir.utcs she appeared on the
parade ground with herkad todj com?,
pletely covered with United States postage
stamps, admiring herself with much gusto.
Screams of laughter greeted her appear
ance. The. Major rushed to his quarters
and discovered his los., suite consoled
himself by proposing that if she wished to
be mailed, iho should go through, as bhe
was pre-paid to her lull weight.- Atlinl

In gentle accents soft and sweet,
Its tender words are spoken :

With many a fruitless flutter.

Thrills with a common beatiug;
A magic', sympathetic chain
From heart to heart, andback again,
'Tis evermore repealing.

And all the strange, enchanting speech
Of true erotic feeling;
It seems to make two natures one.
So sweetly do they blend and run,
Thn ugh the same channel stealing,
Yet every loicg human heart
In its own being dwella apart,
A deep no line halbuieasnred ;

In glad'ning streams, but none can know

bhe tells me to forget her now,
And seek some other fair,
To cost the shadows from my brow,
Which she hath woven there.
She bid me all the past forget.
Which tnera'rr would retain
The pleasure seen when we have met.
Nor think of her again.
Yea, now her heart is closed to me,
Its bolts are all secure.
Her hand has turned the fatal key
That locks a fatal dxr.
The last faint gleam of hope is dead ;
I saw it fade away,
Anddiogered near its dying bed,
Its ebbing life to stay.
Farewell, my fond, departed hope,
'And thou dear one I've lost,
