Twu night on thebanki of the wide Mitsusippi, The struggling tar glirainer'd deep in the wave, When in silence we dug, 'neath the old dreamy forest, Amid the wild cane-brake the wanderer's grave. Twas sad on the bank of that lone, distant river, That the pilgrim should rest in his last dream less sleep, No friend there to cheer his faint spirit at parting, Or the sweet tears of love o'er his ashes to weep. In silence,, we laid him to rest there forever, . O'er his head the red elm and toll cotton trees ' ' V .wave. The croak of the swamp toad was his requiem . ong. And the fire-flies in thousands illumin'd his grave. Unmarked was the spot where we left the poor stranger, Unknown was his country , his kindred, or name! Oh, how long may some fond heart still pray for his coming, And love build its altar on hope's ho...

The conflict commenced not long after the acknowledgment of our independece, and has gradually increased until it has ar rayed the great body of the North against the South on this, to her, the most vital of all subjects.

Every outpost and barrier would be carried, snd nothing would be left but to finish the work of abolition at pleasure in the States themselves. This District, and 11 places over which Congress has exclu sive power of legislation, would be asylums for fugitive slaves, where, as soon as they placed their feet, they would become, ac cording to the doctrines of the North, free ; Unless there should be some positive enact meats to prevent it. v Under such a state of things the proba bUity is, that emancipation would speedily follow, without any f...

The Fight goes bravely on t We learn from a reliable source, that Senator Atchison has rolled up his sleeves and gone to work in good earnest.

Benton's speech delivered at the Capitol. He intends to canvass the State from this time till the meeting of Congress, and will visit Pike from Jefferson. The time of his visit will be made known at an early day, and the voters of "Old Pike," we know, will turn out in mass to hear their distinguished Senator we say distinguish' ed, notwithstanding the sneers of the "Mis souri Republican," who not a century ago was in the daily habit of putting forth just such sneers upon Thomas H.
