ers as saints, Would half-way meet the frankness of your tone, And feel their pulses beating with your own. The North! the South! no geographic line Can fix the boundary or the point define, Since each with each so closely interblends, Where Slavery rises, and where Freedom ends. Beneath your rocks the roots, far-reaching, hide Of the fell Upas on the Southern side; The tree whose branches in your northwinds wave Dropped its young blossoms on Mount Vernon's grave; The nursling growth of Monticello's crest Is now the glory of the free Northwest; To the wise maxims of her olden school Virginia listened from thy lips, Rantoul; Seward's words of power, and Sumner's fresh renown, Flow from the pen that Jefferson laid down! And when, at length, her years of madness o'er, Like the crowned grazer on Euphrates' shore, From her long lapse to savagery, her mouth Bitter with baneful herbage, turns the South, Resumes her old attire, and seeks to smooth Her unkempt tresses at the glass of truth,

He rapidly fell back upon Paris, Winchester, Richmond, Crab Orchard, Somerset and Monticello, picking up arms and ammunition on his route, and releasing the prisoners he had taken on parole. Finally, on the 28th of July, he again entered the Confederate lines, after an expedition in which he had not experienced a single check of any id strong, with several light batteries, which had left Kingston a few days before, had made a large detour to the west in order to secure his left flank. This cavalry, under Colonel Scott, passing through Montgomery, Jamestown in Tennessee and Monticello, had crossed the old battle-field of Mill Springs, then Somerset, and had finally reached Loudon on the very day that Smith had taken up the line of march with his column.

George Mason urged the continuance of the land tax and the poll tax, which would have annually sunk fifty thousand pounds; but his opposition was vain; and taxation was suspended for a year. Having made preparations for security, both against invasions and a servile insurrection, the members of the convention once more declared before God and the world, that they did bear faith and true allegiance to his majesty George the Third, their only lawful and rightful king; and would, so long as it might be in their power, defend him and his government, as founded on the laws and well known principles of the constitution; but that they were also determined to defend their lives and properties, and maintain their just rights and privileges, even at the extremest hazards. Rather than submit to the rights of legislating for us, assumed by the British parliament, wrote Jefferson from Monticello, I would lend my hand to sink the whole island in the ocean.

owship with such a party, and to be called "brethren" by such honorable specimens of dignified humanity ? Verily, they are "all honorable men." Oh, Virginia ! Mother of Empires; how the bluch of shame tingles my cheek as I write these lines ! If you will submit to abolition rule, tear down your glorious "Sic Semper Tyrannis," and raze the battlements of Yorktown; let "time's effacing finger" wipe out the record of your earlier history; let decay and ruin be written on Mount Vernon and Monticello, and desolation on the graves of your Henry and your Nelson; let your children, already ostracized from all offices of trust, except at the price of disloyalty, be banished from the homes and graves of their fathers, and then granting them some "sweet oblivious antidote," let them die in humiliation and obscurity, while all Yankeedom shall squat and trade upon thy lovely plains, thy quiet valleys, and thy mountain summits.

It was also proposed to raise by private subscription $50,000 for the same purpose, and a committee of four in each Magisterial District, to consist of the Justices, was appointed to circulate subscription papers for this object. Several persons present subscribed $200, $100 and $50. A resolution was also adopted requesting Judge Field not to hold the spring session of the Circuit Court. One of our citizens, C. D. Everen, formerly of Pennsylvania, gives $500 to arm and equip the volunteers of this place, $500 to the State, and authorizes the Governor to draw on him one hundred times for the same amount, if necessary.
