From the New York Day WiJg. T1lE POOR. See at your gate that tottering form, Thatweek and feeble one; She, 'midst the cold and piercing storm, Is des'late and alone. Behold! that cheek so *an and'pale, That moist and sunken eyo! Alas! they tell a woful tale A beggar's misery. Turn not away-she asks or bread, To keep her fhm the grave; 11er life but hangs upon a thread Will you not give to save? Can you behold that trembling hand Outstretched amid the storm, And, with a voice of stern command, Throw curses on that formI Stay! stay, rash man! 'tis hard, too hard, To treat poor beggars so: If you were just as they, debarr'd, You would more pity know. You have your plenty and your home, And fire to keep you warm; You know not what it is to'roam, And feel the pelting storm. Then, O takepity on the poor!

EDGEFIELD C. 1!. THURSDAY, MAY 3. 1838. ERRATA.--I some of the impressions of our last paper, the word aliment in the edi torial column was made to read element. The destructive fire in Charleston of which we give some account to-day, will awaken the deepest feelings in our renders. As yet we are in ignorance of the amount of misery and distress which must be caus ed by itj The pecuniary loss must be im iense; an many there are who have been reduced from a condition of ease and coi fort, to a depth of poverty from which time will not recover them. Since writing the above, we have learnt from a stage passenger, that the fire was ar rested on Saturday afternoon, and that from '11 to 1200 houses were supposed to have .been burnt. We have but one reflection at -present, to make upon the melancholy en -tastrophe. Here indeed is a fine occasion for ti. display of that liberal charity for which we know our District is not deficient. The rich should open their purses aud free - ly give of t...
