sday, the 23d inst., a meeting was held at Matthews Court-House, by which his nomination was ratified. On Monday, the 28th inst., a large concourse of people, among them many ladies, assembled at Matthews Court-House, to hear this distinguished gentleman. The Court-House was filled to overflowing, and large groups stood around the building. A large meeting was held at Gloucester Court-House to-day, to nominate a secession candidate for a seat in the State Convention. Many stirring and patriotic speeches were made, and great enthusiasm prevailed.--Among the speakers was Gen. John Tyler.--John T. Sea well, Esq., received the nomination. The submissionists in this county cannot muster a corporal's guard. A Home Guard was formed last Saturday week, composed of men over 45 years of age, and under who were exonerated from military duty. An appropriate address was delivered on the occasion by Rev. W. S. Hawkins. Wheat looks badly, caused by heavy rains and sharp frosts.

Morning and Evening.by John Geo. Watts. When first the glorious God of Day Flings wide his orient gates of gold, And striding on his kingly way, Bids Earth her varied charms unfold, When flower-cups brim with fairy wine, And dew-pearls catch a ruddy glow, When song-birds wake their notes divine, And balmy breezes softly blow-- Mead, wood, and dell, I love to pace, And greet dear Nature face to face. When western skies are royal red, And Even spreads her dusky veil, And love-lorn Lung overhead Draws forth the tuneful nightingale: When shepherds fold their fleecy care, And gally chirp the green-grass choirs, When bat and moth whirl through the air, And glow-worms light their elfin fires-- I love to roam o'er mead, o'er hill, And let my fancy sport at will.

There were laws that were to be enforced in the time of the American Revolution, and the British Parliament and Lord North sent armies here to enforce them. But what did Washington say in regard to the enforcement of those laws? That man-- honored at home and abroad more than any other man on earth ever was honored — did he go for enforcing the laws? No, he went to resist laws that were oppressive against a free people, and against the injustice of which they rebelled. Did Lord Chatham go for enforcing the laws? No, he gloried in defence of the liberties of America. He made that memorable declaration in the British Parliament--"If I were an American citizen, ins
