that the Topeka constitution would-be ad-

In the tones of kindness cheer,

Comnis sterling ,i the var.
In tones olf' ioft subduing power,
Which bids him not forget
The hand which led in boyhood's houi
And guides the wanderer yet.

And 11 his boyhood friends in glee,
Come up b,.ore his sight;

And longs to, linger 'mid those bow

The Florida News Again.
The Editors of the News, have again made,
a lofty attempt in editorial talent, to our
ramwer of the 3d inst., and with all syrn-
pathy for the Editors, we think they have
fallenshort of waiting an article worthy of
the composition of "boys." T:e Editors
after a long attempt at impeachment of
*or politics and position in a former article
letslose of every thing else, and with great
Omerity and fortitude come to the con.
clusion, that lake "Laoni," is lake"Lona,"
wonderful discovery. VWhat a wonderful
capacity for history our cotemporaries
have, that they have kept with such acute
prcision, theo xact namto of a certain
mud hole, when they have removed from
the vicinity, 'lo I these many years.' Now
what the name of a lonely lake has to do
with "democracy," "whigism" and "know
nothingism," so copiously used in the first
article of the Editors, we are unable to
discover, only that the Editors were hard
up for matter, a cause we are not at all as-
tonished at.
If the Editor has put on his real garb of
a typographer, and attempts to correct a
small typographical error, made by us in
a name, (in an article written for a joke,
on a party of our citizens, ) just because
"the truth of history" requires it, we
must, for the "truth" of orthography, cite
the Editors to the following errors in their
first article: 'Domocrat' for democrat,
'strenously' for strenuously, 'partizan' for
partisan, 'reprehensable' for reprehensible,
Miscretly' for discreetly, &c. The Editors
are entirely mistaken as to the 'truth of
history, in the Lake Lona', case. We will
give it as we find in the archivesof Colum-
bia county. "There is a pool of water near
thetown of Alligator named 'Laoni' from
the circumstance of two Indianis, named
Felix and Joseph, (bibliothecated Indians)
having been bitten by a kind of bird,
called 'Laoni' which had a body sinfilar to
a 'marsh hen,' and feet like a 'fiddler".--
We have finished Messrs. Editors.

Pursuant to previous notice, the citizens
of Micanopy and vicinity, convened at
Micanopy on the 10th day.of April, to take
into consideration the Resolutions passed
at a meeting of the citizens of Gainsville
on the 1st instant. The meeting was or-
ganized, Col. George Leitner taking the
chair, and B W Powell, acting as secreta-

mittee of three was raised to prepare a re-
port and resolutions upon th,u subject be-

Look at L ke,

Why should we struggle more? The
cry is, "There shall be no more Slave
States*" and too true does that mandate
seem to guide the destinies of the South.--
'Forbearance ceases to be a virtue,' and
long has the South forborne. The intel-
lect and wisdom of her mightest sons have
been strained to the extremest tension, to
adopt and devise means to settle this un-
definable 'imbroglio'and when the dove of
peace with olive.branch in her mouth was
poising in the air, to alight on firm found-
ation, the falcon Crittenden with his poi-
sonous talons,struck the olive from the
dove, and implanted the upas, and the
"Dead Sea Apple," in its place. The sen-
ate,.has refused to concur, and we have
great faith in that body, the whole thing
is a sham and a fraud. The hirelingg' of
the North could not live of Kansas were
in the Union, they would actually starve
Out for want of a fort to commit their crim-
inal machinations upon, and just so long
as we have such scoundrels as Bell and
Crittenden, with their Southern K. N. le-
gion in the halls of legislation, the flowers
of Kansas will never bloom in peace, nor
the husbandman take his evening march
homeward, save to the cries of anarchy an
