THE RE CE SS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 27 January 1817
THE RE CE SS. The following poetic effusion was handed us, last week, by one much devoted to the sacred nine. In ascending the mount of Parnassus, we wish him every success, and should be happy to see his musing genius exercised on a subject less worn, and in strains more original FOR THE GENIUS OF LIBERTY. Faintly bray’d the battle roar, Distant down the hollow wind, Panting terror fled before, Wounds and death were left behind. The war fiend curs’d the sunken day, That check d his fierce pursuit too soon; While scarcely lighting to the prey, “Low hung, and lower d the bloody moon. “The field, so late the heroes pride, Was now with various carnage spread, And floated with a crimson tide,” That drenched the dying and the dead. O’er the sad scene of dreariest view, Abandoned all t« horrors wild, With frantic step ‘Maria’ flew— Maria, sorrow’s early child: By feeling led, for every vein Was warm’d by hymen’s purest flame; With ‘Edgar’ o'er the wint’ry main, She, lovely, faithful wand’...

Valuable Mill to rent The subscriber wishes to rent for three years from the first of April next, that valuable Mill, with the LOT AND OTHER BUILDINGS attached to it, now in the possession of Mr. Jehu Hollingsworth. The mill is in the north fork of Goose creek—runs two pair of large burrs, worked by two overshot wheels, with machinery in complete repair, and in one of the best neighborhoods for wheat in the county. The dwelling bouse is large, convenient and well finished; ad joining which is a house calculated for a store—together with about 40 acres of Land divided into several apartments, well en closed and in a high state of cultivation: an enterprising, industrious man, would do a good business at this place, and a small capital would be handled to great advantage.
