Min me, when other forms are near, And when my -voice thou dost not hear In answer to thee; When other hands clasp thine, And other eyes than mine Are smiling on thee. Miss me, when morning dewdrops shine Like tears within those eyes of thine, At th is farewell; WheiThirds, and trees, and Hewers rejoice And shag God’s praise with joyous voice In mead and shadowy dell. Miss me, when bright and fair on high The evening star lights up the sky, And regards the silent earth ; When joy and laughter fill the air; When moonbeams gild the roses rare, And all is love and mirth. Miss me, when many a mile of land and sea Shall part me, darling one, from thee, As oft before: • 7 And in thy dreams of joy divine Link Love’s soft name with mine and thine » For we may meet no more.

The municipal election in Edgefield was a close shave, the Democratic candidate fur intendant, Mr. J. L. Ad dison, being elected by one vote. Only two wardens were elected. The rest of the candidates received the same number of votes, and another election will have to be held. Several citizens of St. Luke’s parish, Beaufort Ce., gave a dinner recently to Hon. N. B.

On Saturday last, four Granges, almost entire, besides delegations from two or three others, met. in Convention at Johnston’s, for the purpose of considering the advisability of organizing a County Council of Granges. These Granges were Lott’s, William Lott, Esq* Master; Watson’s, Capt. Elzy Forrest,. Master ^ Pleasant Cross, Dr. J. M. Bushton, Master; and Lee, Capt. Tillman Clark, Master. Small delegations represented the Mt. Willing and one or two other Granges. Aud oue of the first objects proposed by the Grangers was carefully attended to on this occasion ; that is, the bringing together, in friendly and intelligent association, that large class of society—the farmers—who have iu all the past lived comparatively isolated. The farmers and planters brought with them to Johnston’s on this day their wives, their sons, and their daugh ters, thereby promoting the higher social lished at High Shoals, Anderson county, I culture) wi(h al) its beneficial results.

Mr. Quincy tersely enumerates the advantages to be : Saving of land, fencing, food, better condition of stock, greater production of milk and flesh, and what we so much require in this coun * try. the attainment of manure and improvement of the soil. With Indian corn, our invaluable cow pea and the recently’ introduced Japan pea, and turnips, and other plants adapted to Southern culture, we have ample resources for a succession of green toed from January to January. When this system is once adopted here, We can produce the same quantity of cotton on half the land now run oyer, and do it with half the labor, and be independent of the poor labor, of which there is such au universal complaint, and what is palatable truth to us all, we can save money and sell at present prices; for I affirm, and am ready to prove, that the land about Aiken has and can produce three bales of cotton per acre, but is only done by the use of stable manure or its equivalent. And the only way to procure that is by keeping stock, and the only way to keep stock is to soil. If you should deem this worthy of publication, and think it of general interest, I will send you a good way to accomplish this result, with the method of cultivation that experience has demonstrated to be successful. As “nothing in this world succeeds like success,” (it being very contagious,) I hope this crude article' will elicit attention, and induce pome of our experienced farmers to give US the benefit of their experience.
