And now when comes the calm, mild dajr, As still such days will come, To call the squirrel und the bee From out their winter home, When the sounds of dropping nuts is fear*, Though all the trees are still, And twinkle In the smoky light The waters of the rill, The south wind searches for the flowers Whose fragrance late he bore, And fighes to find them in th* wood And by the stream no more. And then I think of one who Her youthful beauty died. The fair, meek hlosiom that grt And faded by my side In the cold moist earth we laid her, When the forest cast tbe l^tff. .. And we wept that one so lovfjy Should have a life so brief. ,, Yet not unmet it was that on* Like that young friend of ours. Eo gentle and so beautiful, Should perish with the flowers. The llonJIa «f the The leaders of the secession movement seem to have recognized (he fact that the commerce of the isidssippi river is an im pediment to their treasonable schemes—that the Nor hwest has too vast an interest in that creek to tolerate for a moment the tho't of its falling into the hands of a foreign pow er—that even M5s. ouri and Kentucky have scruples, under this head, which they do not entertain from a mere political stand point. Hence we hear it proclaimed from Washing ton that tbe free navigation of the Mississip pi is not to be impeded by secession, that under the maratime laws of the world, it must remain an open highway for commerce and travel to all nations inhabiting its shores and valleys. This is a very pleasant sort of 4|eech. It has a mot peac. ful and mtr 4|intilo seeming. It suggests long continued Jrofits in the steamboat and rafting interest, Ho less than regular dividends among corn Actors and sugar merchants. But how is it proposed to answer these questions: I. On whose authority do these persons 4§eak, who have awakened to the needs of Northwestern commerce, and its vastly Ificicd character? What right have they to pledge the Southern people to an observance the laws of nations in rcspect of naviga ble rivers. Who are they What are their local habitations and their n$ui£S respective ly We pause for a reply. II. If these parties wore authorized to speak for the whole Southern people, or for a majority of them, how can the present gen flfation of slave-drivers bind the next gener ijtion IIow can the Louisiana of 1860 bind ^he Louisiana of 1880? What guaranty have we that our right in the Mississippi, recognized to-day by those in whose power it is placed by secession, will be respccted bix months hence when some irritating event Ijiay have suggested the .confi-^cation of a ,Iforthern cargo by an Arkansas mob? We pause for a reply to this also. III. Whgt is the meaning of the phrases •^frec navigation" and "law of nations ?M— JJour years ago the Missouri river was a na tional highway. The Constitution and laws of the United State*, more potent than any law of nations, guarantied he free naviga tion of that stream to all citizens. But scores of steamboats were stopped, searched and pillaged. Hundreds of persons migra ting peacefully to Knusas were robbed and turned backward penniless. Persons com ing down were sent upstream, and persons ^oing up were sent downstream. Of what Utility woulu have been the law of nations in litis case except to justify immediate war?— We pause for reply again. IV. Of what use is the fraa navigation qf the Mississippi if every cargo which goes to ward the (Jul is required to pass through a custom house, and pay duties at New Or leans?- Mississippi steamers cannot navi gate ths Atlantic, nor can New York or Liv erpool merchantmen sail tip the Mitsiwsippi.

The National Crisis Committee, Will it Stand by the tluiou Corresdordence of the llawk-Eye. lj WASMIXOTON, Dec. 17, 1B10. A little over a week ago, when it began to be demonstrated the South wanted con cessions from tire North—not with any view to compromise, Col. Curtis, of Iowa, drew up might bo placed fairly before the country.— There were a few faint hopes then of some circumtancc intervening (o prevent the threatened dissolution of the gov ernment. Subsequently Mr. Curtis was ap pointed on the special committee of thirty three, and in that committee thj resolutions were introduced. Their firmness greatly exasperated the Southern members, who had been calculating that there would be some knee-bending on the part of the North. They were terribly indignant, and even threatened a multitude of horrors if the res olutions were not withdrawn. But they had got hold of a gentleman who was not to be so easily intimidated, and the resolutions will be urged and acte! upon in ihe light, as their author believes, that they express the sentiments ef the people of the North, i and Hie,- w,U detmnmc at ooo. wUOm IWtd Norllicrn momb-.-rs on tl.o commitlcc !i»vc,*gc to stand tiy their rights, or whether they will prefer to see them bargained away. The resolutions are as follows: Resolced, That we concur in the opinion expressed by the President in his recent an nual Message, that "this government is a fend 'the integrity of fhe Union. ernment and secession, being revolution, should be regarded as the ''commencement of actual hostilities against the peace and Reioleed, That while wc deplore any re sort to force, and recommend remonstrance, executed, and will clothe the Executive urm upon the duties of bis office to discharge them fully and faithfully. But the intro- daction of these sentiments in the meeting of the committee on Friday, created great er than be authorized by Congress to do one thing towards maintaining the rights of the government. On Saturday, the wife of ths gallant Ma jor Anderson, in command of Fort Moultrie, visited the President and implored him to send a re-inforcement of troops to tho assist ance of that garrison, but he was immovable, and is intent on sacrificing that company, it would seem, rather than stand up fur the rights of the country with the possibility of incurring the vioience of the secessionists. fe V 1 utft ,11.: sr.w i-rt .!

SIGN OF RKTtTBxiNo REASON.—WhileSouth ern extremists have been saying very harsh tilings of the North, they have been sub jcctingthemselves to the censure of the world by their violent expulsion of peaceable men and women. This has been carried to so great an extent, and with so little reason or dccency, that the authorities of Savannah have felt called upon to interpose. .The Mayor of that city in conjunction with the City Council, denounces the recent lynchings in, and expulsions from that city, and offers a reward of $100 for the nppre- htmsion and conviction of persons implicated' in those affairs.

The people arc in arms against the Northern men who have been in the coun try but a few months: On yesterday even ing two gins and a negro quarter were fired' simultancou-ly, doubtless by the procure ment of these wretches. The night was lit up for miles around.
