'* Human souls of every kind
Sail the human sea;
Some have vessels to theirmind,
Riding fast and free.
Others' vessels dwarfed, confined,
TUnseaworthy be- o
Some souls see and someare blind,
Having eyes to see.
Some souls have their firmament
light with golden stars;
,t e-eAtadaed-, afid'pent
Rimmed with vapory tears.
Some with heavenly radiance blest
Ever reach to Mara ;
Some are with the rain besprent
Underneath the stars.
some souls twinkle, some souls shine,
Others neither one;
Some like diamonds in the mine,
Others-in the sun.
Some souls roam the starry park,
.Some walk in the shade;
Some lie in the mouldy dark,
Down where graves are made.
Some souls habitations make,
Hemmed with mortal shrouds;
Some build grandly in thb break
Of th. drifting .I.ud.i.
Some &ouls ring with music spent,
Wh en-ts sure i, found;
.Othera are with discord rent.
From the trodden ground.

Human souls.of every grade
Build the best they choose;
Each dan give another aid-
Some give, some refuse.
Some are dower'd with suulight
Fr6m the heavenly seas;
Otters not, and many gleams
Those may give to these.

Example of Perseverance.
The following is a most remarka-
ble and praiseworthy .instance of
what perseverance and industry,
rightly directed, are able to effect :
Among the graduating class at
the last commencement of Williams
College, was one by the name of
Condit, from New Jersey. t The
gentleman is a shoemaker, married,
a&d ha ra amikyW of' fw.-w, dj',-n,
Mix years agol becoming sensible of
the blessings of an education, he
commenced learning the simple
branches, such as are taught in our
primary schools. One by one, as
he sat on the shoemaker's bench, he
mastered grammar, arithmetic, geo-
graphy, etc., with some occasional
assistance from his fellow-workmen.
At this time he determined to ob-
tain a collegiate education. With-
out means, and with a large family
depending on him for, .support, he
commenced and learned Latin and
Greek, in the evenings, after his
day's labor was over, under the di-
rection of a friend; and after the
lapse of a year and a half, prepared
himself, and entered the Sophomore
Class at Williams' College. t
He brought his bench and tools,
and his books with, him. The stu- t
dents, supplied him' with wdrk; the
faculty assisted him; and with the '
fund for indigent students, and some
occasional assistance from other
sources, he was enabled to go thro'
the college course, and at the same e
time support his family. He grad- e
uated on his birth-day, aged thirty-
;wo. He stood high in his class,
and received a part at commence-
ment, but declined. At the fare- c
well meeting of the class, in consid- s
oration of his perseverance, talents,
tnd Christian character, they pre-
tented him with an elegant set of d
silver spoons, tea and table, each a
handsomely engraved with an ap-
propriate inscription. u
Mr. Condit will now enter the P
Theological Seminary at New York, a
nd will, no doubt, make a faithful t
mnd popular minister. a

is a spirit of rivalry between them,

poets may chant, and writers "fret

closely about them and smile.













A Word or two to the Ladies.
The following is an extract frqm a
sensible article written by JENNY
WOODBINE, a talented correspdnd-
ent of the Bainbridge Argus:
Well! my bachelor friend, of
blessed memory this commuraca-
tion is not addressed to you, butjyou
are at liberty to reid it if you have
forgiven, (not forgotten) your disin-
terested friend. My prese_ t "chat"
is about and to the ladies. ,
Shades of DeStael, and Boland !
what a base imitation of the genuine
woman is palmed off on us in tle pres-
ent day. At least wee something
on the street which might pa or a
new invention of a fashionable dir
goods establishment, moving on
wheels, when we reflect that in thi(
fast age, such an establishment
might be set to moving; or which
closer inspection, might be takenfoi
a covered, and heavily loaded wag
on. We are told that this is a wo
man, but would never recognize ita
such without artificial aid. Ladies
I am not "hitting" at your 'hoop!
when condensed so that your gal
lant, poor fellew! will `not have t(
walk "on the other side of the street'
when he accompanies you,, or sit on
the "dashboard" when he takes you
to ride, they really add to your beau-
ty, and I hope you will never, nev-
er sing, -

My vision of whalebone is o'er,

But mournfully drag on the floor.

description of Jesus Christ, as it
was found in an ancient manuscript,
sent by Publius, President of Judah,
io the Senate of Rome:'
"There is at this time in Judah a
man of singular character, whose
name is Jesus Christ. The barba-
rians esteem him as an immediate
offspring of thImmortal God. He
is endowed with such unparalleled'
virtue as to ealllback the dead from
theirgraves, and to heal every kind,
of disease with a word or touch. 'His'
person is tall and elegantly shaped
-his aspect amiable aid reverend:
His hair, flows in thpse beautiful
shades, which no united colors can
match-falling into graceful curls
below his ears, agreeably crouching
on his shoulders, and parting on the
crown of his head, like the head"
dress oflNazarites. His forehead is
smooth and' large ; tihe cheek with-
out spot, save that of a lovely red;
his nose and mouth are formed with
exquisite symmetry; his beard is
thick and suitable t the hair'of his
head, 'reaching a little below h'is
chin and parting in the middle like
a fork. His- eyes are bright, clear
and serene. He rebukes with au-
thority, counsels with mildness, and
invites with the most tender and per-
suasive language. His whole ad-
dress, whether in word or deed,- be-
ing elegant, grave and strictly char-
acteristic of so great a being. No
man has ever seen him laugh, but
,the whole world beheld him weep
frequently ; and so persuasive are
his tears, that the multitude cannot
withhold theirs from joining in sym-
pathy with him. He is moderate,
temperate and wise. In short, what-
ever thins phenomenon may turn out

the age is fine preaching; it is mor-

plain, earnest preaching; preaching,
suggestive and illustrative; preach-
ing absorbing all that eloquence can
offer, but eloquence adapting itself
(without which it ceases to be elo-
quence) to the wants,and tastes of
the people; availing itself of the
lightof history for illustration, or
9of .cince for confirmation; or 04
philology for elucidation, and hold-
ing also aloft that they may reflect
their rays upon the genius of Chris-

lustre, adaptibility and power. The
attempts to say fine things in the
pulpit is a solemn sin, and fine ser-
mons (like all other finery) are very
' evanescet in their influence. Let-
ihe fine sermon system die out as
fast as possible, unless as it is to
God and man. It devolves upon a
few men to show to those not gifted
with so much moral courage, that
there is everything to gain and no-
thing to lose by the adoption of a

Sin rows. When planted he drives
dopn,.a'few stakes, six or eight feet
apart, leaving them about four feet
high the whole length of the rows
and nailing a strip of wood all along
the tops, and tying one or two lower
,down the stakes, to make a trellis.
SThe ground should bo dug deep aind
Made rich with manure, and a spoons

'"When they have grown sufficiently

.let these main branches grow until
they have come in flower arid set
the first bunch of fruit; then I pinch
out the top, one joint above, the
fruit,. leaving the leaf entire. I then
allow it to go on again until it has
flowered and set another bunch of
,fruitwhen the top is pinched out
one leaf above the bunch, the same
as the first and so on of all the rest,
'taking care to cut all the laterals
which grow on the main branches

situation, they will ripen at least as
early as those grown in any other
way 'out of doors, and frequently
three days or a week earlier. When
ripe they will hang longer on the
vines without decaying. The situ-

Purpose of Railroads. me
In introducing another article on the ha
iuect of Railroads, we would call at- th
tendon to a communication, signed hi
"Cato," which we take from the Tani-
pa Peninsular of the 27th ult. Though pi
we do not agree with the writer, s9 far
as his -first, proposition is concerned,
we believe the main part of the article
is calculated to do good. Nearly the
same arguments arc presented as were
urged by Col. AG. SUMMER, in a com-
munication published in our paper some
three months since, and demand the
earnest consideration of the people of
East And4 South Florida.; ..If/those
who are most deeply interested wuld'
study the subject. and deter-ine;tp6.
act for themselves, there would yet bde
hope of the final accomplishment of
our long cherished Railroad enter-
prise .
We are not at all pleased with the
manner in which the subject of Flori a
Railroads has been treated, both in
and out of our State. We feelgt-
great' injustice has been done to Flori-
da by writers and speakers on the sub-
ject, all of whom seem to rely almost
entirely on foreign patronage for the
support of such enterprises-somd even
intimating that Florida is too poor and
insignificant to become evenan assist-'
ant either in the building or sustaining
of a Road. We know that the princi-.
pal officers of the Florida Railroad
-omniiphny-have constantly entertamned
and disseminated such ideas, and the
direction in which their means and la-
bor are being expended is only inhon-
est keeping with their opinions. They
have sought the shortest route from
the 'Atlantic to the Gulf, without re-
gard to the wants of the country thro'
which their Road is to pass, and it
would 'seem that they calculate merely
on the accommodation of outsiders.-
If we have been rightly informedojhe
stockholders and managers of the Fer-i
nandina and .Cedar Key's Road do not
pretend to look for support at home..
Their work is calculated to do im-
ienise good to the cause e of .otbeit
commerce, and will undoubtedly prote
a profitable enterprise to those who are
interested therein. But we dislike the
idea-of building a Railroad in Florida
3 merely to meet thebroquirements of
Foreign 'trade and travel.I We want a
SRoad for our Wwn convenience, to car-
ry off the thousands 'of'bales of Lot4
SCotton, and the heavy. hltgsheads l
.Sugar and Tobacco that will roll int
! the markets, from ouri State, as soon,-
as a favorable outlet can be opened for
e them. The Southern portion of the
bMain Trunk of this Road,,(the part
in which 'every citizen of the State
, ought to feel interested,)-passes thro'
a greater part of that section most cal-
culated to be benefitted by such a work.
SThe whole distance from the point of
r divergence to Tampa Bay is through
o the richest'farming lands in the State,
e and much of that land is-of such a
- quality as to prove chiefly valuable in
s the production of the mpst heavy com-
Smodities, such as Sugar, Tobacco, &c.,
, which are not easily carried to market
e without such facilities as Railroads and
h water-courses afford.- There is a great
s. deal of such land in the Southern por-
S, tion of this county, in" Sumpter and
t Hernando'counties,, and the 'richest
ctlands on Hillsborough river can be
, profitably cultivated in nothing else.-
The consequence is, that rich mines of
wealth are thus effeotually locked up,
f and must remain so until means of
?" transportation are furnished. Smch
,r' are the purposes fo- which we desire
st the Soutbern portion of thie',Road to
to be buitlt,and'if Ittts oec put ]u opera-
is, tioo, the produce O. the route will seen
at be suticient for its support, indepead-
m ent of the large amount of foreign
he trade jmnd'travel which will naturally
'seek the better and safer channel which

nd this route will-afford. .; "
Tebe tae boltqtea U is typf;




.. We are happy to be able to state
yith certainty, that Col. Sanderson, the
'President of the "Atlantic and Gulf
Railroad Company," has succeeded
in purchasing a thousand Tons of Rails
for that road with rolling stock, &c.
We also learn that hlie has made arrange-
ments, by which he will probably be
enabled to secure the rails for the
whole road.. We 'rejoice in the fair
prospects of our old neighbors, and we
hope still good friends, and at the
steady progress of our glorious system '
of Internal Improvements. May the
work go bravely on, until the Northern
and Southern, the Eastern, and ex-
treme Western limits of our now bud-
ding State, shall be united by bonds of
Iron, which in time will beget united
interests and mutual attachments.-

the most expieditious route, because it.
is shortest and has the greatest length '
of land carriage; it, is safest, because
it avoids the dangerous navigation
around the capes, and has, at either
terminus, an easily accessible, ample
and secure harbor. The Bay, at Tani-
pa, has ample depth of water. anpl&
spacia excellent anchorage, and a har-
bor so perfectly landlocked as to be
secure against damage to shipping from
storms. No other point on the Gulf
offers advantages at all equal to those
of Tampa, and these natural advanta-
