"GOD BLESS YOU"
I've listened to the cold farewell,
The careless, qhort good bye,
Wheri nota tear of sadness fill,
Or tributary sigh.
Pve felt tho pressure of the hand
At parting'galnst my own,
The severing of a happy band,
That long in love had g-wri;
*.3ut never did they wake the thought,. ;
Thy sweet" God bless you" fondly brought.
I', aske-th fur a mightier power
To guard the loved ones here,
When in thedrear y tempest huur,
*- Tou ar 'not nigh to wdheer;
A firm reliance on h6s'care,
Who rules above the sky.
A trusfulness that looks to share
The watching of his eye';
A hope that they who love thee wel i
4Vlay in his favor brightly dwell.
( God bless you"---in long after years
I'll hold it to my heart,
And check the quick and bitter tears,
That from their fountains start,
"11l merit with a soul breath'd prayer,
In trusting fervor given,
The great, almighty, watchful-care,
Which thouhast called from heaven;
Arnd as I breathe it to the skies,
Tle sweet "God bless you" shall arise.

y We are disposed this week to hav
a little familiar chat with the thinking, in
dus riou8s men of Florida. What we hayv
( y, we hope will lead to no misundei
ding, and be considered in the light (
citizen talking to another concernin
th mutual benefit of each, and the gen
eral prosperity of our country. It may b
presumed that we 'will deviate somewh
f rom the rule we have laid down, but ou
excuse must be thatal editorsareallowe
io make considerable digressions. Wit
this simple introduction, we will procee
to open our conversation :
In 'the Democratic papers published

the utmost,to swell a Convention, by ap-
pointing delegates to it,,to be holden at the
Mineral Springs, on the Suwannee, on the
26th day of the present month. This meet-
ing is to secure the election of a Repre-
sentative from thie State to the Thirtieth
Congress of the United States.
Now let us see wl)y. our hard-working
citizens are so energetically and smoothly-,
tongued called upon to elect a Loco. Foco
to represent then in Congress. Let us ex.
aminre intp tehe positive necessity of this
Measure. Let us camly anJ cooly judge

SWe are thus summoned to surrender our
elective franchises, whether we will or no.

Let us discuss the claims which demands
our votes. If we are obligated to an. in-
,dividual, there must be some ground for
the obligation-some evidence to show
that our sympathy is not bestowed in vain.
.Ingratitude is one of the basest of crimes.
If we have'been really ,benefitted, and
have not returned the kindness extended to
us, wve do not deserve the praise of worthy
mien; but, if, on the contrary, deception
iand chicanery has been used to .promote
unworthy objects, we do not resent it, our
conduct is not becoming freemen, and we
lay ourselves open ever after to universal.
imposture and direlection of Republican
The many promises which the Demo-
cratic party have m-ide in Florida to pro-
mote the welfiure of hel citizens, by elect-
ing members of that party to power, has
eventuated in promises. W& have the most
positive data for this assertion; and what
is of more itiportance, we have direct
proof and can prove it. It is in the remnem-
berance of every one, that prior to our en-
terane iinto a State Government, the most
exalted terms, and unceasing means, were
used to get the people into the measure-
- for they, as now, knew that such a pro-
e ceeding would not only create trouble, but
' run them in debt. The people of the East

r' jectures, we are rather inclined to believe

equal to any in the place.
The salubrity of Palatka is too well known
to need any con mment--suffice it to say that
it was selected as a military post during the
Indian war in preference to all other sites
on account of its general healthiness, and
the facilities which-it afforded.
The immediate vicinity of Palatka abounds
in game of all description ; the river, a bold
sheet of water running at its side, yeilds a
supply of the most delicious fish-while the
numerous orange groves of its neighbor-.
hood gives a perfume and a feeling to the
senses truly inviting and enchanting.
The man of leisure, the sportsman, the
invalid-the lover of the beautiful an d pic-
turesque, will find employment for the min
at Palatka which no other locality in E. '
holds out. .- -

There is a freshness and a
purity in morning, which, is
to the phyiscal arid moral state
of man is vigor ,ad delight.-
It Jis seldom that .the sensualist,
thf.idle or the vain, taste its
etliireal joys. A mystical
spirit lurks in the perfu med'
breath of awakened creation,
which is undoutedly gifted
with supernatural power
Those who would 'live long
and see good days, must hab-
itually become early risers
The loss of the morning hour
is never retrieved.
