"r" THE BAPTISM,
She stood up in the meekness of her heart
Resting on God, and held her fair young child
Upon her bosom, with its gentle eyes
Folded in sleep, as if its soul had gone
To whisper the baptismal vow in Heaven.
The prayer went up devoutly, and the lips
Of the good man glowed fervently in faith
That it would be even as he had prayed,
And the sweet child he gathered to the fold
As the holy words went on
His lips moved silently, and tears, fast tears
Stole from beneath herlashes, and upon
The forehead of the beautiful child lay soft
With the. baptismal water.
Then I thought
That to the eyes of God, that mother's tears
Would be a deeper covenant, which sin,
And the temptations of the world, and'death,
Would leave unbroken, and that she would
In the celear ifht.af heawe haw..xavray rang
The prayer that pressed them from her heart
In leading its young spirit up to God.

MY EARLY DAYS.
My early days-my early days-
How sweet the memory !
Gay.phantoms fill theii sunny ways-
Then, all the stars thai we espied,
Seemed drops of living light,
And every evening multiplied
To our enraptured sight.
And clouds that floated far above,
Seemed downy beds of rest,
For beings formed for purer love
Than flows in mortal breast.
The very fields in which we played,
The pathway that we trod,
A glorious loveliness betrayed,
A beauty sent by God.
Blest early days! ye're now no more,-
And I am growing old;
My head'is nearly silvered o'er--
My days are well nigh told.
81pw beats my pulse-my torpid breast
Feels not life's early joy;
My sleep is not that quiet rest
That blest me when a boy.
"The earth has faded to my view-
My eyes are growing dim-
And I seem dull and fettered too,
In thought as well as limb.
Yet though these sunny days have crept
So suddenly away-
Their memory still is freshly "kept,
To wake an old man's lay. D. c. c.
HERE'S THE BOWER!
Here's the bower she loved so much,
And here's the tree she planted;
Here's the harp she used to touch,
Oh! how that touch enchanted !
Roses now unheeded sigh,
Where's the hand to wreath them ?
Songs around neglected lie,
Where's the lip to breathe them ?
Spring may bloom, but she we loved
Ne'ir shall feel its sweetness;
Time t. t once so fleetly moved,
Now hath lost its fleetness,
Years were days when here she stayed,
Days were moments near her;
HReaven,e'er fomPed, a brighter aid,
Nor pity wept a dearer.

With regardto the affairs of this post, I
have to state tlat the schooner Motto, tho'

defences havebeen entirely abandoned-
and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of
ordnance & otnancb stores. The garrison
is healthy, anc I have caused to embark on

several famiWie'r-i&-widow- and orphans
by the fatal Jattle of Withlacoochee.-
These are recomhtended to the kindness
of the commanding officers, and I have or-
dered the disbursemnent to be covered by
the Quarternraster's Department. The ves-
sels engaged for tie emigrating Indians to
rendezvous here in the 15th inst., have in
part arrived, (four) and a schr. from New
Orleans with provisions, making in all, five.
We have had no'pommunication with the
Florida head-quasers on any subject con-
nected with the public service here for
near four weeks.I On this day the distri-
bution of provisiqis under the treaty com-
mences. Underin existing order I have
so far considered myself an Indian agent
as to authorize thiissues, and to take meas-
ures for the secuty of the deposit of pro-
visions, by districting them in the trans-
ports now anchobd in the bay. This ar-
rangement-I camtt'report as comp-ete, but
hope to succeed v"hout additional expense.
To land thes( provisions at this post,
where already'so much public property is
irremediably 'exised, to conflagration in
the event of an attack, and not protected
by a successful fence of the place, would
ensure its destruction, and perhaps crush
all hopes of emigration. These proceed-
ings will, Itrust e approved by the See-
retary of ;Var.
In conclusion I beg leave to remark,
that such are th4[ndian combinations, that
it is not considered practicable to force or
keep open a mmunication with Fort
King, with less an a well appointed and
instructed foreef one thousand men.-
Three out of' fr bridges are destroyed,

country may 'gierally be described as a

To the Adjust General U. S. A. Wash-
We are glad find (says the Charleston
Courier of the inst.) that the intercourse
with New Orns, Mobile, &c. through
the Creek Nat', has not as yet been in-
terrupted, as pIers from both those places
were received 1t evening. Indeed,it ap-
pears from the allowing, copied from the
Augusta Consfjtionalist, of the 2d inst.,
that the Indiai'n that portion of the Na-
tion through wbh the mail passes, evinced
a very'pacific position, and were much
alarmed at the arlike preparations on the
part of the whrs.
Although rnch alarm and confusion,
prevailed in Cambus last Tuesday and
Wednesday, in.onsequence of rumors of
hostile movements on the part of the Creek
Indians, no readanger to the city of Col-
umbus existed that time, as was after-
wards ascertainl. A party of armed In-
dians, twenty oithirty in number, has in-
deed crossed th river, but for what object
no one knew. he whites watched them,
and finally cam pon them near the river,
when a skirmish ensued, in which two of
our countrymeil were killed, and one
wounded. The consequence of this affair
was the immediate organization of the mi-
litia of Coluhmbj and the neighborhood,
which it is belied, should remove all ap-
prehension for th inhabitants of that place.
The Indians williot have the temerity to
attack a city defended by a thousand brave
Americans, well armed and full of zeal.-
The spirit of our countrymen in that re-
gion, is roused, aid it is their enemies that
are in danger, ad not themselves.
It was rumoed, in Columbus, that the
Creeks proper, yere very friendly, but that
the Uchees an4 Hitchetees were hostile,
and that the forber- had offered to march
against the latte, if it was desired by the
whites, and artr were given to them, for
that purpose. This rumor may be true;
but it will be bst to let the Creeks alone,
and to subdue tie Uchees without their as-
sistance. Armsshould be given to no In-
dian, however friendly he may appear to be.
"Besides the above information commu-
nicated by ourtriend from Columbus, he
learned from tr ellers who had just passed
through the Crkek nation, that the Indians
were generally pacific and extremely a-
larmed at the hostile attitude assumed by
the whites, andithat it was rumored those
friendly Indians were willing to go down
the river and punish the few disorderly In-
dians, who had caused the excitement."
THURSDAY' FEBRUARY 11.
Brevet Major G4neral Scott has been or-
dered to take comfiand of all the forces to be
sent to Florida, anI is now on his way here.
He left Augusta fr Milledgeville the same
day that the Richdond Blues l1ftfor Florida.
He will sobn be hre with the drafted Mili-
tia of Carolina aid Georgia. Twenty-one
companies of regulars are' placed under his
command. With this force, we doubt riot,
General Scott wil soon make the deluded
Seminoles repeattheir opposition and wide-
ly extended deTaitations. Gen. Scott is ac-
companied by MaYor Van Buren, a son of the
The Governnent has taken the most ac-
tive and efficient m asures to terminate this
blood-thirsty war. While the Indians were
extending 'their raves around us unresist-
ed, while fear by day, andt agony by night,
were taking possession of the stoutest hearts
amorg us, many, unmindful that the heads
of we Government were ignorant of the
scenes of desolation and misery, which were
daily increasing around us, began to complain
of them as tardy in coming to our assistance.
We believed that the Government would 'act
with promptitude and energy as soon as ap-
prised of our situation.
It would seem by an article in the Globe,
that precautionary measures for eiourdefnce,
were taken by the General Government be-
fore they were demanded.
It thus closes an article upon this subject:
"Never since the settlement ofthe country
has a greater force been organized in propor-
tion to the probable amount of an enemy, and
in every instance the arrangements of the
Government have kept ahead of the informa-
tion received here."
Yesterday morning the Augusta volunteers,
composed of the Richmond Blues, and the
Ricomond Hussars as infantry, and the Glynn
and Camden volunteers, commenced their
march from camp, on the west side of the
river, opposite Picolata, to the head. quarters
of Gen. Clinch.
They were impatient of delay at Picolata,
and set out on their march with alacrity and
in good spirits. Under their guard is a train
of baggage wagons, conveying provisions and
stores to Gen. Clincn. ...-
Just before 'he march yesterday morning-,
one of the sentinels (Mr. Pemberton,) on the,
farthest output, discovered an Indiani.
came in and reported what he had seen, to
Capt. Roberton, who immediately with a
small detachment, scoured the hammock
where the Inian made his appearance to the
sentinel. Nf farther discovery was made.
This fellow fas undoubtedly a spy; and the
circumstance of his being there, renders it
not improbable that the volunteers will have
an opportunity to prove their courage, and
test their skill in fighting Indians, before they
reach Lang jyne.
The most cheering intelligence is now re-
ceived from very quarter. Volunteers, mi-
litia, and regulars are coming to our protec-
tion, and toienforce the stipulations of the
treaty made for the removal of the Seminoles.
The Florida arrived at the wharf Monday
evening lastbringing the Richmond Hussars,
another company of volunteers from Augusta,
Georgia, undcr the command of Capt. SAM-
UEL BONEs. The spirited and philanthropic
movements ol Augusta, demand from us the
highest commendation, and have created a
debt of gratitude which we can never dujly
repay. J3utAhgusta, with its heroes, will
long be remembered.
The Florida also had on board a company
of volunteers fro Darien, under $he com-
mand of Capt. F. BRYAN. The citizens of
Darien were amoag the foremost to feel and
to act in the cause of their suffering fellow
citizens. Many vill receive the gratitude of
suffering hearts, which, though no opportu-
nity occur of expressing it, will be long felt.
A most unfortunate affair took place at
Camp Lang Syne, on the 31st ult. Colonel
Parish shot one cf his Lieutenants, a son of
the late C. H. Ward of Tallahassee. Lieut.
Ward was a student at West-Point and had
obtained a furlough to visit his friends after
the death of his father. He had been at
home only a few days, when he volunteered
his services to go against the Indians. We
forbear to remark upon the attendant circum-
stances, until they shall have been fully de-
veloped. Col. Parish and his men have re-
turned home. -
The Middle district of Florida, will, in a
short time, have 4x hundred men under arms
engaged in the Seminole war. A number
fully equal to one-third of the effective men.

recorded that they may be imitated, the first
should be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes that this appeal to his
fellow citizens of the South, will not be in
vain. It would be a reproach to our Planters
to meet the fate of the Southern Review. Of
the last it may be justly said, that it was suf-
fered to fall, when it was not only rearing for
us a well merited fame as a literary people,
but it was also vindicating the Southern, hab-
its from the unjust aspersions which have
been so liberally bestowed upon us out of our,
section of country. The Southern Agri-
culturalist" in some measure supplies the
place of the Southern Review, so far as re-
gards the circumstances last alluded to. If
serves as a Register not only of methods of
Husbandry, but also of facts relating to our
system of Slavery., The subjects of the deci-
pline, the treatment, the characters of our
Slaves, are fairly suited to its pages, and
constitute topics as interesting and important
as any which can engage either our own at-
tention or the attention of those abroad, who
feel a legitimate interest in"our concerns.

to remark, that if he had not undertaken to
continue the publication of this Periodical, it,
most probably, would have been either re-
moved from our city, or been suspended.
Whetherit willbe in his power to continue it,
will depend not only on the Pecuniary but
the Literary Contributions of Southern Plan
ters. He confidently now leaves this matter
in their hands, feeling a full assurance that
there is wanting on the part of our Planters,
neither the liberality nor mental energies ne-
cespary to sustain the Southern Agricuhurist.

BENEFITS OF MATRIMONY.-I Went tO a
neighbor and solicited a donation for a
public object; he replied, "I approve of
the object, and would assist you, but you
know I have a family, and charity begins
I called on a second; he replied that
such as were able ought to be liberal, and
that he had every disposition to aid me;
but he added, "I have stronger claims
upon me which I am bound to regard,-
those of my children."
A public charity demanded that a mes-
senger should be sent from the city to a
remote country. A person was selected
whose talents were well adapted to the
mission, he replied, "that nothing would
give him more pleasure, but it was abso-
lutely impossible on account of his fami-
ly." He was excused,
Two merchants, partners in business,
failed. At a meeting of the creditors, it
was resolved, that one should be forthwith
released; but the other because he was a
bachelor,might yet, as was his duty, go to
work and pay a still greater dividend.
An insurance office was about to ap-
point a secretary. There were, as usual,
twenty applicants. In the discussion of
the boarc of directors, the talents of many
were set 'orth-when a member rose and
said that he one whom he should propose
was a man of moderate capacity, but that
he was a poor man with a family. He
succeeded and holds the office still.
A mercantile friend wished me to pro-
cure a person to fill a responsible station.
A gentleman came who seemed well fitted
for the office. I asked -him how much
salary he expected. He replied, smiling,
"I am a married man," which I understood
to be fifteen hundred dollars per annum.
He has the place. No bachelor would have
over a thousand.
Two cri:ninals were tried for forgery at
the old Bailey and were condemned to
death. The King pardoned the one who
was married, on account of his wife and
children. The other paid the forfeit of his
life, being a bachelor.

NEW YEAR'S ANECDOTE.-A little girl
was despatched by her mother one New
Year's day to wish a Grocer a "Happy
New Year," with directions to tell him
that she would "take the gift in molasses."
Accordingly she took a Jug and went to
the store and did her errand as follows:-
" Marm told me to come and wish you a
happy new year, and here's a Jug to put it
THE FEMALE ORPHAN.
"Ah, what is friendship but a nme, I
A charm that lulls to sleep,
A shade that follows wealth and fame,
And leaves the wretch to weep."
There is something in the fate of the
friendless Orphan that calls loudly for the
sympathy of the benevolent. Ah! who
can contemplate without feelings cf the
deepest regret, the situation of the poor
female who has been deprived, b5 the
stroke of death, of those to whom she
looked for protection and support, and who
has been thrown destitute upon the world,
to bear the contumely of the proud, and
the scorn of the rich,-with no friends to
cheer her in the hour of trial,-no father
to' protect her, from the insults of the un-
feeling,-nor mother to watch over her in
the hour of sickness!
Whose heart js so devoid of sernsibility,
as not to feel for the situation of her, whose
sufferings have rendered her weary of life,
and wlose unfortunate circumstances are
fast bringing her to the dark and silent
tomb ?-The time has been, when happi-
ness attended her,-when she had a pa-
rental -oof to shelter her,-a mother to
love her,-and a father to guard her, but
alas! those days have departed, those joys
have glded away, never, never, to return.
It may be that she is languishing on a bed
of sickness, suffering the agony of pain,
deprived of medical attendance; or it
may te that she has fallen a victim to the
snares of villainy-betrayed, deserted, lost
-her inward peace of mind destroyed,
with a broken heart, caused by the "inhu-,
inanity of man." It may be that she finds
relief to a "rooted sorrow" in placing her
hopes of happiness in a world to come.
Pool and unbefriended Orphan! lonely
and unhappy female! Although the rich
may mock your poverty, the proud treat
you with contempt, the artful villain wound
your feelings, yet there is a Being, who
will guard you with a parental care, a
Father to the fatherless" who will in the
end place you in a home where sorrow will
no longer mar your felicity, and where
pain will no more attend you. O yes,
there is a nome-rorTe rigmneotrs-eternaT
in the heavens," when their pilgrimage
through this valley of tears shall have been
ended-when "their dust shall return unto
the earth as it was, and their spirits ascend
unto God who gave them."
