A GREAT BOOK. ? INQWRE WITHIN for any Iking yoy Wilt te Know Pubiiak * 1 FERGUSON, EVENING STAB fros TRR STAR. Editor of St*r: The line* below were written In 1832 by John MoDeraaott Moore, then a voting stranger from the Emerald lale. I had the honor of introducing him to J. How ard Payne, and hit line* were impromptu. They are too good to be lost. McDerinott Moore in a Hjmn to Nature expresses himself thus: " There is a little church yard, by the wave Of a fair river in an Isle of woe; A pensive school boy marked It for his grave, And now sn exile, wandering to and fro, He would not change for every Joy below, The blissful hope of mouldering there at last. Blow on, ye surliest stomas of lortune, blow He little neks It If his lot be cast To rest by thst dear stream, when all vow doubts are past." The author of Home, Sweet Home, sleeps in Algeria, and McDermott Moore found a grave far from the little church yard, by the wave of a fair river. 4 He is entombed in Greenwood Cemetery. Major. On the Botarn of the Author of "Home, Sweet Home."' Merrily cleaves the lordly bark Through the clashing flood with Its oreet of ? BOW, Mingled with many a glancing spark That ah ne, like gems, in the wave belt w ; O, who shallfkthom the minstrel's mind, Standing aloo' on the rolling bow, As his cheek Is fanned bv the balmy wind. That blows from the land of his boyhood new Long haa he poured his lay sublime, To raptured ears ina distant clime; But vain were the plaudits the inlands gave ; Still memory beckoned him o'er the wave; So lowly their palaces seemed to be To the shrines of the goddess that guards the free; Still would his eye in rapture rest On the po!den skies of bis native West; At length the feelings of days gone by, Wrought so deep In his spirit's core, He *eeks the land where he'd love to die, For nature and hope could brook no more. The clouds thst floated along the sky Have dissolved In mists, and are gathering round, Too dense for the search of human eye? And tte land la lost In the dusk profound ; But still Is the bard on the bending boom Striving to pierce the gathering naze; And what Is aenl'd by the clouds that gloom Memory gives to his raptured gaze Memory tells where such things should be, And be sees them all as he striven to see; The awnbre wood, and the dalzied hill, Alidad in their own wild beauty still. Oh, soon he'll see witn a proud regret. How rcenes sre ccanged since his childhood ret, And soon he'll see that where'er wa roam, Tbere'a no home In the world like his own "Sweet Home " Now the vessel has neared the land Sails are furled, and cablea flung ; BMinds the bard to his native strana, Not an honored, and not unsung. O ! that was a triumph of song indeed, As we gathered at night In a festive crowd, To give to our poat a lasting meed, And to girdle his brows with a garland proud ! For woman was there with her conquering eves, And her beauty so dszz'cd the ring that night, That our festive hall seemed a paradise And every lady an angel bright. O how happy that wandering bard To whom beauty has given such bright reward ; Little he recks how his hope bfgulies, Thus safe in his rampart of beauty's smiles. O woman ! dear woman ! if given by thee The bays of the poet?though poor he be? Is still more dear and irere lasting far Than the wreath of the hero, though red with war. u O long may it circle that mlnetre'.'s brow, Ana long mav it bloom when the bara is past, As a beacon of hope and of glory now, As a trophy to hang on his tomh at last Ifote ?Mr John Howard Payne landed in New York, after an absence of twenty years, during the summer of 1832. His friends, or ' more properly speaking, his fellow citizens, gave nim a benefit at the Park theatre, in which two of his own most populsr pieces, Brutus and Charles II , were enacted.

The crowd that assembled on the occasion must hsve been most gratifying to the feelings of the principal person concerned ; for there W88 a galaxy of such lovely women present that we could net help exclaiming with the author of the Veiled Prophet " That the saraf lips and eyes They wear on earth, will serve in Paradise " The Very Last Mare's Nest.?The follow ing article from the Journal of Commerce ex poses, in very few words, the efforts of the Ro publican press to misrepresent the deoision of the Supreme Court in theDred Saottcaso, and shows, with groat clearness and force, that the positions that party have already assumed with rcferenco to tho decision in question, point to naked and palp&blo revolution as the remedy on which they have planted them selves. Its views, as the reader will per ceive, of the oharacter of the labors of tho Re publican party, ore identical with those we have long enforced. Tho articlo is well worth reading, indeed: " Tna Dud Scott Cask.?Our Republican friends have fairly raised the standard of in surreotion, and are giving us the higher law in all its moods and tonses with a vengeance They declare In every way and shape?in every form of language, and with every possi ble manifestation of temper, except that of reason and sense?that the decision in the Died Scott case is not law, that the Judges who decided it don't know what law means, that their decision is absurd and. nonsensical, oppressive and tyrannioal, that nobody is bound by it, that nobody ought to obey it, and finally, that it shall not be submitted to. " After the flurry is over, we shall respect fully request the organs, whether of party or of the press, which nave taken the Goddess of Liberty into their especial keeping, to be pleased to let us know the platform or pro gram upon which they propose to carry out this government after the year 1830, or when ever the Millennium shall arrive, which is to induct them into power and place. " If the present Supreme Court is to be over thrown and its decrees trampled under foot-^ if the fundamental clauses ot the Constitution are to be sooffed at and obliterated, we take it for granted that some other arbiter of con troversies, some other ultimate tribunal, rome other form of government in short, is to be adoptad; and we are curious to know what it is to bo. "For the present question raises no issue like that presented by the Fugitive Slave Law, as to the oompeteney of Congress to pass thwlRw?no question of State Right or Federal ^athority?on which men may plausibly dif fer. On the contrary, nobody pretends to de ny that by the very words of the fundamental charter, the Supreme Court is vested with the power that it has exercised?that in deciding this Dred Scott Case?be the result right or wrong, the Court has done no more than it is authoriied to do, and that every obligation of Constitution and of compact, of honor a?d of law, bind us to obey the decisions of that high tribunal. .. . . . "But if all these considerations are to be de rided?if the present la, in a word, a case for revolution, then do pray let us know what we are to have next. Are we to go for our law to thf Tribune, or to the Post?to town meeting, or to a Vigilance Committee ? "We have here, in practical shape, tho tan gible results of tho very sensible doctrine of the Highst* Law, by infiltrating which into the minds of our people, it is hoped to prepare them for some violent outbreak against our ?ystern of government. What i? tho decision In thf Drod Soottoaso? Let as Be? whit the precise point* are, which are considered so very novel, awful, and sub versive of liberty "First. The Conrt has decided that this government was made to secare the freedom of the white rice, and that people of African descent are not citisens of the United States. This very point was decided administratively by Mr. Secretary Marcy not three months since, when he refased passports to certain free persons of color. The refusal haidly at tracted attention. It is arrant traah and non sense, an anachronism, and a historical absur dity, to assert that the Declaration of Inde pendence, when it speaks of the ( freedom and equality of mankind,' intended to comprehend the biaok race The Declaration of Indepen dence was made by the representatives of oc m muni ties every one of which were then slr.ve holding communities If the truth ocald be get at, it would no doubt appear that, with perhaps a few exceptions, every man who signed the Declaration of Indepenlence, w is at the timo a slaveholder. Very sensible and logical, is it not, to assert that these slave holders intended to declare that their slaves were all free and equal to themselves ? " Second. The Court has decided that prop erty in slaves is reoognised by the Constitu tion, and that Congress has no power t<* pre vent the citiien of South Carolina from going into the common territory of the United States with property recognised as sucn by his State, any more than it has to prohibit the oitiien o. Massachusetts from going into the Territories with property recognized as such by his Sta< to ''Third The Court hss decided that if ? slave is taken into a free State and then Ink en back into a slave Stat* by his or her inast er. that by this act of removal, the owner d its net lose his right of property " We do not propose to argue these poi nt*, but no man who is not blessed with an hom?ric Sride of dogmatism and arrogance, will un ertake to say that they are so transparc ntlj clear that they can be decided but one way They have been submitted to the proper - aid regular arbiters, and tbey have been deci d?i They have been decided, if you please, sg taast the hopes, the desires, the interests, the) in stincts and the passions of the Free btat*#. If you please, they have been decided errone ously. Is that any reason for attacking tl e Court with this insane and ferocious violence ? "What are we to come to? How ia govern me) t to be carried on ? Nobody doubt* tke leacj ingof the Judges of the Supreme Court?lo one questions its honesty. But it is insist ed with a howl of rag* that tbey have been g< r erned by their prejudices Suppose they ha ve. Do we expect the gods to come down fx om Olympus to govern us ? Do we expect to find men for Judges superior to the passions of ho man nature ? And in the name of everything that is oomical, are we invited to look for 'them in the ranks of the Republican party ? " The long and the short of it is, tha I the so-called Republican party is only another name for Revolution and anarchy. Its funda mental notion is a derision of all law thai does not suit its whim?of all administration that docs not please the passions of the majority. It is utterly incompatible with every notion of order, cf discipline, or of law. It may, for aught we know, prove itself able to overturn a government, but it is utterly incompetent to organise or conduct ono. We look with curi osity to Bee whether the conservative fraction of the Republican party intends to be swept along by this tide of violence and disorgani i at ion."
