tWlre was visiting her a young pan for whom
she had conme'ved an affection, and whose pro1-
position of marriage she was now begitn-ing im-
patiently to await. But no proposal was made.
A dark thought finally crossed the young wo-
man's mind that the re must le some obstacle
in the way, and that this obstacle was in-all
probability the child. An unnatural 'struggle
of jealousy took place, which resulted in a fear-
ful determination--she would make way with,
the child Beneath her house was a deep cel-
lar, where she occasionally stored her vegeta-
Taking her child by the arm one day, she led
it down stairs, and thrnsting' it aside, closed the
door, locked it, and hurried up stairs. The same
evening her lover came; they sat chattingItogeth-
er, blt no mention was muade of the little absen-
tee. .The next day after a desertion of twenty
four hours, the mother went softly down and hs-
tened at the door.' The quick ear -of the child
cauglit her mother's step, and she implored liver
'o take her out of that dark place-she was so
cold and very hungry. -No answer was returned,
and the mother crept quietly up stairs. In the
evening the lover came again. They took snp-
per together and passed a social evening. Af-
,ter the'second twenty-four hours hardpassed, the
mother made another visit to the child. Again
the little sufferer heard her, and with feeble
voice 4)gged-bor a crust of bread-only one orast
of brea ]. This pulled a little upon the mother's
bit bte-hor -jurpose wa.4s fix~ed. Another-
($9y passed. The mother went quietly down
.*hirs and listened. Allvwa.s silent. She opan-
c[ sofitlite door-the child lay dead. Taking
swifily the body up stairs, she laid it upon a
h*d; and inrmediately making a gract outcry,
called the neighbors together, telling them that,
litr elfirt had suddenly died. And so it seem-
ld. The child was lying-in its coffin, bestrewn
.with flowers, brought by the little playmates in
.the neighborhood, who had come to attend the
fitneral of thcir lost favorite. The procession
,frooVed towards the quiet, Gottes-ackce, (God's
.re,) where was to be planted this little seed of
niimortal flower. A chcrgyman was in atten-
fanc.' The mother stood looking ?lbwn lion"
)Ie grave, over which the holy man wasrepeat-
Ing, with solcmn voice; "Our Father, who art in
Aleaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom
onme; thy will be done on *earth as it is 1n heav-
4en. Give us this day. our daily bread" A
piereing shriek, and the mother fell with a" groan
fto the earth. Looking wildly around l~r, she
then, in gibbering agents, related to the' shud&
ldering thronu at th'egrave the very deed her own
hands had committed. She lived not loi 1 after.
Crazed and smitten by the handof God, she
miserably died-a signal instance of retribution,
and a startling lesson upon the words, 'ive it
this day our daily bread. ** 1. "

Me of the midnight of my heart ?
Heaven? Why one moment didst thou leave
Thy strict and zealous' gates apart ?
Oh.1 Why grant me such glimpse of bliss,
Then plunge ma into the abyss?
Why art our bands so softly wove,
That they might be more quickly riven-,
Was I clasped to thy breast of love,
To be from that to madness driven ? .-'
In Heaven and rapture killed a.leelg,
To wake with horror in the deep ? .
The rose must bloom beneath the sun,
And love to truth must tdrn forever;

But doubtful faith tCe loving shun-

Pe lay stctothed out on an old pine log,
Bv Ilis one-eyed horwe and his bol-tail dpg;
And his breeches were showing by many a rent
That their lease, though a long one, was almost spent.'
And as real estate you might cla-ss lis skirt,
For its cotton was long since buried in dirt ;
And the brimn of his broad-brimmed beaver was gnawed,
But it was broad-brimmed still, for the brim was a-broad.
The rays of the sun were pouring down
01u the place where his hat should have had a crown.
With emotions of pity I drew near his bed,-
And, gently.to wake him, I punched his head
With the point of my'fishing-rod ten feet long,
For yju see t ie COlonel was burly and strong;
And as lie turned over hlv, slipped'-off the log,
And f-ll on the back of his curtailed dog.
The quadruped howled, the bipeidbawled,
Thac bnt h-ArJkt~of "Awake, thou who sleepeit-av'a :e tlce !" I crbaet ;
"Oh, hman, while thou slumb'reot, is passing the tide,
Which, taken when rising, will bear thee tw fame--
Wilrlead thee to fortimn--will gain thee a name."
He grunted out something, p(r laps 'twas a damn, "
And said,. "Not so drunk as you think Iam."
H3 winked his eye and he scratched his head,
And (omitting the oaths) this is what'he said :
"Hello Squire's that you ? Did you think I was drunk .
Because-1 1Ai 1 here' on this old pine's trunk ?

[For the Florida Dispatch.]
MR. EDITOR : Dear Sir :-You doubtless
have read an article trom tlhe pen of "a Middle
Florida Democrat," in the Floridian & Journal
of 19t, inst. I desire to make a few comments
upon this letter, and therefore begtbat you will
indulge me thus far. Hlis object appears to be
the nomination by the State Conv ntion, of a 6
nan from West Florida,-to fill the responsible t
position of Governor; and gives as his reason o
for so desiringg, "the absence, hither'.o, in the
Board of Trustees of the Intcrnal Improvement
Fund, of a representative from that soctiop of <
hle State.'" I must confess Mr. Editor, that 1 I
was not a little surprised whet) I read the arti- <
cle in quiretjp when it is so well aoIt gener-
ally known, that it was from thins section of the
State that all the opposition the Internal Ihn- b
provement Act ever received,. &me. And 'is c
the West not at ttir momhent.opposed to the b
provisions of the law t -" -
There are, I am frec to admit, a few noble ex-
ceptions; men who looked to the interests of t
the whole State, and not to tile engendering of '
strife, or fostering petty jealousies between the 1
different sections. Ile asserts that "West., M41-
dlie, East and South Florida, arc I terms wbich I
should only be used as geographical designs I
tions." Il a measure, I agree with him; but if
this is to be the i.sue, I assume the ground
that the WVest has no right to representation ill,
the Board of Trustees of this *fund, in the per- r
son of the Governor ex-officio, tile pixesident of t
said body. Suppose the pruvis'nins have operated more hardly upon the' West than
any other portion of the State, rmy not the.
cause Ile traced to the fact of her nqt co-open,- t
ting with Ale othersecnons ? Iam of ..he opin- A
ion that such i6 evidently the case.\ I think-it"

champion of the West, to entcrtaini for A m)o

jS What key unlocks man's understanding

Again, if we examine the list of candidates
before the late Convention, we find that the tone t
of this party, is anti-Southern. Among the can-
didates we find the name of McLean, a promi-
nent candidate for President before the late Chi-
cago Convention, and a Black Republican; and
Botts, who, though a' Southern man, received
all of his votes from the Black Republioan States
.of Indiana and Ohio, and not one firom a South-
ern State; thereby showing, in what light lie is
received'in that section. Doubtless hijs infa-
mous propositio- of affiliation with the woolly
heads, has caused hiin to be in high favor, with 1
some of that partV.
On the second ballot, John Bell o Tennes-
see, the present nominee, received votes fom '
every free State but Indiana. Now, arc not those -
facts significant? Who is John Bell A sonth- I
ern mau it is true; but At one time, a candidate
for Black Republican saff'age, or in other words,
hi% name was mentioned.?as likely to come be-
fore the late Chicago Convention. His politi-
cal course in other respects, is by no means sat-
isfactory to the South. Ie opposed the Kan-
sas Nebraska Bill, not on the girmiod that it
took the question of Slavery out of-Congress;
..but because it- repealed the Missouri Cooepro-
kmiie, which virtuallyaekno-lls;dtlM ir
;of (kwgrevs, to legtlato on the subject of slave-
,i ry. Had John Bell been true'to the South, ,he 1
911wnld never have beenthoug],t of by a Party
"that ignored our rights, and which is seotional
-in its fnture.4."' '' A
W We must.confess, that when the I)cn i partyy had been so often taxed by the Op00-i-
"iton in the South, for its want of fealty td_ his
election, when It professed to be the guard# of.
Or rights ; and when, too, we had failed t ob-
tain an explicit acknowledgment of those ?*hts
-lefore the late Charleston. Convention, tha6 w
looked forward'to the.action of thns new laty-
it Baltimore, with no little interest. W'lmd

of its principles, that it -wam impossible to judge
from it, what measures of public policy it propo
ses to carry out, and -consequently ,taking this
as our guide, we were at a loss to fathosti the aim
of this new party. To do this, we must refer to
the proceedings of their late Convention, and
ascertain the political precedents of the mern-
bers. We find upon examination that this Con-
vention was composed entirely of fossil Whi-gs.
When Gen. S. Houston's name was proposed for
President on the groundth, t he was a good South-
ern Democrat, he was objected to 15y a number who
wanted none but a Whig. The candidates bal-
lotted for, were all Old Line Whigs with the ex-
ception of Houston, wOo las lately been

the old" Whig party. The object of this par-
ty is no more nor less, than that of resurrecting
the old Whig party under a piew nanme. They
no longer present issues to the country which
have long been their peculiar tenets, and on
which they" have so often been'defeated, but ta-

the country, an] the late dissensions in
the Democratic party, they present no issue
to the people, but seek .to 4Mlly under
their! banners, men of all shades of Opinion, no
matter what may be their sentiments njtlie sub

old line Whig once more occupies the Execu-

members elected on their platform, excludes
slavery or not ?- They have discarded such a
trifling issue (!)'as it is far more important to
see a few of this old party at the head of affairs,
that to check the tide of Noithern fanaticism.
What shall we say of a party,' that would thus
seek to build itself up? What must we think
of those Southern men, who, like Esau, for a
mess of pottage would barter away their dear-
est interests? It cannot be denied that fur
some time past, that in order to defeat the great
Denmocratio party, which has hitherto been con-
servative in its tone, a union between the Black
Republicans and old line Whigs was seriously
mcoted. This was proposed by John Mimor
Botts, of Virginia; and the prominent men of
that party, thereby demonstrating, that its lead-
ers had not in mind tlhe rights of the South, or
any particular, measure of federal -policy, but
simply the placing of prominent Whigs in of-
