To the sstiff and4 whaleboned 'aions
40tlbe yoying.aitnd buxom Einpress-
Wrotea. letter to Eug-enoe,
-.0o Ote leader of tle fahe sl is,
Asking her in terms pathetic
Just, to bend her Nick a little,
Only just a very little,
So that she, the dear old Countess,
'Might, conform with greater comfort,
To the fashions of her mistress.
N-w the Empress. who took pleasure ;
In the whims of this old PCountess,
B en-t her back a' very littlv,
Just enough to say she bent, it,
And t,! ladiesthirough th- empire
'Also bent their bricks a little.
Thea there was a consultation
I What should this new bend be christeied;
.ndllt last ttiey all concluded
That the niamqxe which nowv it carries
I -as by far the most appropriate.
Soon the iews of this new fashion,
Sinking, into the Atlantic,
Was seized by an electric current,',
And borne onward to the country
Where Columbus safely landed
Several centuries before.
America is strangely altered
Since the landing of Columbus,
And'the ladies are as thirsty
For the fashions fresh from Pari
As.EuCgenie's loyal subjects.
Eagerly-they seize the -Grecian,'.
And they bend with such a vengenance
That they are in coustant-danger
Of becoming separated
(* Where the stays are laced the tightest.
Now young ladies, dear young ladie's !
Good and Sensible young ladies,
Follow not this foolish fashion
Taught you by a crippled Countess;
For the time will come, and shortly,
When you cannot, keep from bending-
When though laced in stays and braces
Straightened up with boards and whale-
,b on e, . : .. ... ... .
Still you cannot. keepfrom bending.
Then with sorrow you'll remember, *
-, When your back 'was straight, you bein.it
In accordance with a fashion-
With a fashion fresh from Paris.
Now young ladies, dear young ladies,
o1 )wthe advice I give you;
Do not break your bacl s by bending g
rn. m:. h like the crippled Countess. ,-

provided for immediate wants, arid
thesucceeding winter a second one
furnished liberal means for the ex-
igencies oftanothe season. At both
ot these Mrs. Col. Sprague presided.
The present Rector.Rev. Mr. Capen
-Accepted the cllate of the parish in
1867. We now come to the last ef-
fort after so mlany' others, made by
strangers- aifd residents, to sustain
the little 6h rchbwhich has so brave-
,y held its way through 'poverty and

to, the present moment. In review-
ing the pas.t, it must have been re-
marked, how often the Ladies had
contributed to the relief of the
church'in times of necessity. We
'iavw now to chronicle another of
their timely and successfful efforts.
The first formal meeting i. r eleience
to the "Fair" was held, at"the house
of Miss Louisa. Fatio. '
Col. J. T. Sprage, explained the
object of the meeting, mentioned the
sum required to be raised, and clos-.-
ed with an eloquent and effective ap- 1
peal in behalf of"The Church;,; both ,
here and elsewhere, throughout our i
country. The society was then cr- ,
ganized, by electing Mrs.; j* T.
Sprare P resident, Mrs. C.has. H- ,
Rggles Vice President, and Judge
Phillips Treasurer. A, subscription
had previously/been circulated and
the ladies named the. 4th d-ay of
FebrUary, as the d iy of "The Fair." "

..*WRITTEN FOR ST. AUGUSTINE EXAMINER.]
- .'"IN giving :Ahe.Hjstory of the late
Fair for the aid of Trinity Church,'
it has been thought that it would be
" ..- interesting to those concerned, to
look back, ana trace the origin and
progress, of t.e little church, for
which all have so earnestly and suc-
cessfully labored.
By refering to -the Records of -the
Parish, we find thio following: "In
1812 Rev. Andrew Fowler, Mission-
ary of the Protestant Episcopal
Church Society in Charleston, S. C.,
came to St. Augustine, finding the
ground unoccupied, and encouraged,
by the kind reception of the inhabi-
tants, proceeded to organize thc"
First Protestant congregation, in'the'.
territory oi--East 1 lorida, after its
cession.
For. a few weeks, he LyffiJiated
atatedly in the' old Governnment
house, returned to Carolina, and was


prevented from resumlug his mission,
until March 1822, when he reaY-
peare~d, and eloutiunilte '-zoalously it)
bhis work, f6r more than a year.
Rev. 31ellishJ. Mbtte under ap-
pointment from the ProtestainV..
Episcopal Church' of Philadelphia
succeeded Mr. Fowler. Ife remain-
ed but a short time was only in Dea-
cons.orders, and there is no record
left of his ministerial services.
During 1824 and 5, -the society
was successively visited by Rev.
Christopher E. Gadsden.of Charles-
ton, and Rev. Edward Phillips ; each
remaining ,a period of over, two
moiths, administering the sacra-
mn~ts, and baptiging children.
,T,he corner stone cf Trinity church
was laid on Thursday the 23 day of
June 1825; on a lot of ground which
has since been granted by the Con-
gress of the United States, to the
Wardens and Vestry in trust &c.
Revo. Edward Phillips offered U!."

the occasion.
From this period until the arrival
of Rev. R. A. Henderson Mission-~
ary Agent- of-- Peisylvam, 26" J im-
18"9, the congregation were -'i.S
sheep without a shepherd," except
*, perhaps a months services rendered
by a visitor.
To Mr Henderson's'industry and
geal, the community is indebted for
the Edifice in which "prayer now as-
cends as grateful incense to Heaven." "

his memorial.", Rev. David Brown
puqceeded Mr.'H., Nov. I833. The
ch'e ch was consecrated to the wor-
ship of Almighty God by the name
-of Trinity Church June 1834 by

DEATH-BED CONFESSION OF A GREAT
oRI3IB.-The New Orleans Picayune re-
a,t.es that,9om_ y-ea_- kgo a. respectable
oung 1m1n, the only support of a widow-
A mother and sister, was cleriX in a dry
oods store in this city. He frequently-
ssisted the cashier, and one day a forged
ate on the firm for hundred dollars, in
he hand writing of the young man, was
resented at the bank by an unknown
erson and paid. The young man ad-
fitted drawing the check, but had no
ecoRllection "of the circumstances, and
would give no explanation. He was ar-
ested, tried and convicted. His mother
,nd sister alone believing in his inno-
once. Bowed down with shame, and'
nable to vindicate his honor, he died
shortly after. In less than a year the
bereaved mother died also. and the sister.
as left to struggle alone for a living,
whichh she obtained by becoming a seam-
tress.. A few days ago a lawyer was-
illed to write the will of a man at the-
oint of death. In this will he bequeath-
d his property to the sister, and em-
odied in the instrument a full confes-
on of the forgery committed eight years
go. He was the cashier of the firm,
ow grown rich. It was by his direc-
on the di'aft was prepared. Now after
ie lapse of eight years a tardy repara-
on is attempted to be made. Bui it
ill not restore life to the dead, or ex-
act the 'bitter sting of sorrow and grief
long endured. It is one of the strange
vents which make up the story of a life.

EW through arrangements between

-conduaed between the Atla.nt.c & Gulf
R. R, of Savannah, the. Fen. GVo. &

of Ri~vea* Bo<^s by which we make this
the chea~pest and quickest route to Bald-
*WiO aeksonvill~e and all the landings'
an~on the St..^tohn's River.".. "'
..."It is tilxQ quicjkest anfd cheapest, route
foryotir'fieigtht. Our rat s are now but
, one-half the ainouut charged by thie
steamers from Savannah.nd Charleston,
and tinder all circumstances we guarantee
that the'rate SHALL be less t'han by -'Any
other line. To t:his advan~t~ge^ of cheap-
ness must be- added the enti:e absence of
sea' risk to Charleston, B~altmore, Phila-


delphia, Now York and Boston" thus
lessning the amount to be paid for in-
suran.v -No outlay of freight by this ar-
rangeMeit.- Goods shipped from Savan-
n'ah in' the morning will reach Jackson-
ville the same night. No insurance by
- this route, and all claims for loss .or da.m-
age promptly settled.
The accommodation for passengers are
perfect. No change of cars. We com-
bine with speed gr"at increase of comfort,;
having upon each train. Pulman & Kim-
ball's magnificent sleeping car. Two
trains, daily, will leave Jacksonville ftr
Svannali.and points in the interior.-.
Time, by passenger train, between Jack-
sonville ,1nd Sav..nnah 12 hours. The
Steamers Darlington and Hattie run in
connection with these roads, upon either
of wltich through tickets can be purchas-
,eda' Baggage Checked Through.
Our, connections at St. Marks for
Havana, Key West, Tampa, Pensacola,
Appalachicola, and New Orleans are sure.
Eight Steamers per month ply between'
Ntew Orleans and Havana, touching at all
Ili'e intermediate points. One 'leaving
each city every week, thus giving us a
weekly connection each Way.
With the advantages which this route
an4d.my ask, that our. ability to Ao s6
al'i U tested It will be borne in mind.
that this r'ute SHALL ALWAYS be cheaper,
both for passengers and' freight tha.i any
other, and that if at any time tho ainount
charged is not less than that. charged by
t6e steamers to 'Jacksonville' and points
on the St. John's River, upon the fact
