From the Colunbus Sentincl. Bright days of my youth, I think'ofyoi still, When in boyhood's glad time, I roamed oer each hill; Or chased the fleet Buck, As he swiftly ran: Or cross'd the 1right waters Of my okvn native Dan. I cherish the fond hope, That yet I may see The friends of my youth, Who have loved thee like me; That again I may wander From the dull.haunts of man, Alone on the banks Of my own native Dan. I left thee in peace, In the spring tide of life; have seen nothing since But sorrow and strife Oh! soon come the day, When again I shall stand On the beautiful banks Ofrmy own native Dan. I'll hail thee with joy, And leave thee no more; And live as I did, When I l'new thee before And when rigid death, My life shall command, I'll sleep on the banks Of my own native Dan. Agricultural. From ic Augusta Constitutionalist. I am much gratified, as I presume many of your readers are, with the inter est you have always exhibited in ihe cause of agriculture. If a plain man may ex pre...

and I gladly avail myself ofthe opportiiii ty which is afforded me, of announcing my determination. So deeply do I- feel the debt of gratitude which I owe to my constituents, that if I know tnyself, there is no sacrifice which I would not make to serve them. But I am-well satisfied that there is no service which I could render them, which wouldtbe at all commensurate with the sacrifice of interest, of feeling and of health, which a longer. continuance in Congress would involve. "1 assure you, sir, that whatever pleas ures public life may have afforded to others, that I leave it with no other regrets, than as the termination of a relation which has so long subsisted with thq most generous and independent of constituents, and the loss of the good feelings of an enlightened and patriotic portion. of these constituents, occasioned by an honest and indexible ad herence to what [,believed to be right.

Riscellaaeous. From th Charleston Mercury, April 29. OUa CTy.-Anniversart-of the Great Fire.-The number of stores. dwellings, &c. excluding back buildings. destroyed by the great fire was a little over 500. Of these it must be remembered the far great er part were wood and old, and many of them comparatively valueless. Since the fire there have been rebuilt(including aliout 40 now in progress) nearly 180 huildiigs. all o, brick, excluding, as before, kitchens &c. which in Southern cities are a neces aary adjunct to every habit-ition. A mong these should -be noticed 3 Churches. (all restored in a style far superior to those destroyed,) and the CharlestoU Hotel re built on the former plan. King street is. we think, fully half rebuilt, and probahly the value of the buildings there is greater than that of all which were destroyed im that street. Meeting street is rapiily ris ing from its ruins, and bids fair to go ahead of its neighbor in banishing the last e mains of the confla...

before yesterday, the 7th, I called on M. Daguerre, at his rooms in the Diorama, to see these admirable results. "They are produced on a metallie sur face, the principal pieces about 7 inches by 5, and they resemble aquatint engrav ings, for the they are in simple chiaro oscuro, and not in colors. But the ex quisite minuteness of the delineation can not be conceived. No painting or en graving ever approached it. For ex ample: In a view up the street, a distant sign would be perceived, and the eye could just discern that there were lines of letters upon them, but so minute as not to be read with the naked eye. By the assist ance of a powerful lens. which magnified 50 times, applied to the delineation, every letter was clearly and distinctly legible, and on were also the minutest breaks and lines in the walls of the liuildings, and the pavements of the street. The effect of the lens upon the picture was in a great degree like that of the telescope in natue. "Objects moving are not imp...

THE FIRST OF MA-Y. The celebration of the First of May is of great antiquity. This period is also called May-day, or Flora-day. It is so called, because, as some writers say, the celebration of it was established by the .Romans in honor of Maia,* the mother of Mercury, or Flora, the goddess of flowers. The feasts or sports instituted on that day, were termed Floralia. These were kept in the month of April. Flora was a real personage, who, in consideration of her munificence to the Romans, was worship ped as a goddess. The Senate ordered her birth-day to be commemorated with plays, and offered sacrifices to her, that she might bless the hopeful increase of flowers and fruits. Flora wam painted in a mantle of various colors, with a beautiful garland of flowers on her head, and bear ing in her hand the horn of plenty. The Romans also called her Chloris, from Chloros, a Greek word signifying verdant. They declared that she was united in mar riage to the Wind Zephyrus, from whom, by way ...
