9.0a gwss# Flora Day. The following song. adapted to the occasion, was sing at the Alay Festival at Edgefield Court House. Ye maids of Edgefield, gather deA, While yet the morning breezes blow; The fairy rings are fresh and new, Then cautious mark them as you go. Arise, arise, awake to joy! The sky-lark hails the dawn of day; Care, get the hence, from Edgefield fly, For mirth rules here the moru of Aay. Ye youths, who own love's ardent power, To yonder shelter'd bank repair, There seek the early opening flower, To deck the bosoms of the fair. Arise, &c.

Oh, woman! truth and passion rear the throne Where thou dost sit triumphant and alone; . Bright shapes of fitful fancies throw Prismatic colors o'er thy beauty's glow Before a thousands shrines thy feelings burn, As vestals wave their tapers o...

And what was the immediste result? Sir, in Rhode Island and Con necticut, the Republican incumbents wee swept by hundreds from office for political reasons alone. Was there any difficulty in finding pure and patriotic Whigs to sup ply their places? No, sir! The only dif ficulty produced by the emergency was, in making selections among the crowds of hungry vultures anxious to fat ten upon the public crib. The atrocious injustice, the cruel tyranny of removals from office, the suffering wives and children, the starving families of the dismissed officers, were libr gotten as things of by-gone days.

Al though it is with great deference to the Charles ton perfected taste of our Lords-the Ladies' that we give our consent to the intention, if not to the conclusion of the poet.
