_COLUMBIA. Friday Morning, September 15, 1865. Wisdom in September. "Nemo semper sapiens," is. the Latin pro? verb which a venerable but sprightly friend persists in translating, "No one is wise in September;" "for," quoth he, "to say that no one is wise at all times, would be to utter a mere truism, and a truism uttered with gravity in good society, is a mero imperti? nence. Tlie Latin really' meant to say that September is a month in which nobody can have his proper senses about him. And he is right. Aud you, and I, and all of us, are not the same men in this month that we ore at ordinary periods. Therefore, wo should attempt nothing in September that involves tho necessity of right thinking, close logic, deep research, aud, briefly, wis? dom. There should be no legislation this month-no convention-no constitution - making. Whatever is done now is sure to be a blunder-to be full of blunder?. The season operates upon thc human brain, as thc same season is said to act upon the rat? ...

Appeal for Joffe mo* DKTII, AC. rcsciuti0r? was mibmtttpd yesterday in thc Convention, appealing to the mercy of President Johnson, in behalf of the late President of tho Confederate States, Jeffer? son Davis. Wo speak of him as President, and of the Confederate States. That he was such, and iuat these States were con? federated, and in a Government de /acto, is ono of those flxod facts which cannot be gaiusaryed. The legitimacy of both may be denied, but it is a mere miserable affecta? tion to employ any periphrasis to describe or define them.

Some in silence sleep Beneath the mournful yew tree's gloom; Others, within the boundless deep, Have early found an ocean tomb; Bim are the eyes that gently shone. The once warm heart lies still and cold, And hushed for aye, forever gone, The voice that sung the songs of old. Where aro they? On some foreign strand For many a weary day they roam; Cheerless they tread the stranger's land, ' From friends afar, afar from home.
