The following beautiful poem would have given
j immortality to the name of its author, Edgar Al
len Poe, even ifhisorner great works had perished :
It was many and msny a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee ,
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
7'han to love an f be love ! by me.
J was a child and she was a child,
In tbi3 kingdom by the sea •
But we loved with a love that was rnoie than '
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the winged seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, lor.gago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a c loud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee j
So that her high born kinsman came
And bore her away from me.
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angeD not half so happy in Heaven,
Went envying her and me—
Yes !—that was the reason (as all meu know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
Thai the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our-fove, it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we—
Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above,
Nor the demons down nodei the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul trora the soul
O the beau'iful Annabel Lee;
For the moon never beams, without bringing
me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel I,ee,
And the stars never rise, but 1 fee! the bright
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee:
And so alt the night tide, 1 lie down by the
Of my darling—my darling—my life and my
b.ide :
ia her sepulchre there by the sea—
In her tomb by the sounding ? a.

replied that she cared nothing for his parentage,
that she had no money herself, though she had

From the Rtllefonte Watrfinvin.
For the past three years we have, without
reserve, expressed our opinion of arbitrary ar
rests and the treatment of political prisoners.
These opinions, our readers well know, wore
anything but complimentary to the '"loyal" o.y
triots that now hold the reins of power.- The
'government* feeling and knowing the uubuund
!ed r din nice ol our pig-er, and imping to con
vine-; us that we ha-1 been laboring under a
grievous error, on the 2 I inst., kindly sent us
an invitation to visit the military prisons at
H rrisbnrg. The invitation wis no formal,
bod-hearted, careless one, but a real, warm,,
h--arty, in fact pvemiy one—?itpwmy, indeed,
that we di i not fe d like declining it, lest the
'government's" feelings, or our own, might be
hurt by such a course. In order that we might
not mi*> the place we were requested to call at,
and that our visit mi §!it not be interfered with
by thus-- jealous of the dlstingui hei honors
pai l us, an armed escort was . onerously fur
,,nished to protect us from all annoyances, pay
our fare, furni-h subsistence, and bear the ex
penses generally. Kind and considerate, wasn't
it I We appreciated the kia lness—who won! I
n't.' an Ito the bust of our ability, notwith
standing our: xcessive mo 1 sty, drilled the squad
of men under our command round town until
the time for our departure, to the evident sat
isfaction of the mi ; .•gens, who hoped our visit
would prove entertaining mough to keep us in
the service ter. years, and to the great delight
of th-* progeny of both niggers and aboliti • i
ists which in this place are exceedingly diifi
cuir to dintiiiguisii one from the other. Is ii
any wonder wo felt proud of the position we
occupied. I hadn't we, like a roajority of the
shoul ler— trapp • 1 gentlemen of the day, got a
command before we enlisted .- What mattered
it to U3 if a few dirty firgered loyalists did
poiyt at us and laugh as w • passed their places
of business. We hadn't to howl war for three
years, and pay half we were worth to get our
commission, as many of them would be willing
to do ! We didn't march heiwi i our men when
on duty a* t Sk-'u* kin 1 d when there is danger

Not wishing to kv-.'-p the agents of our friend
the "government" in pense, and having a
dest'- Jto I*.-;: \ roar ftstor. ti'u.m the arduous
dafies of attending Vyf - wants, we proceed ad
forthwith to the utiles of ioe provost m o-shal,
to ascertain what wo eoai I d ) 1 >? our country
and guttering humanity. That protector of the
ne >h' liberty not being pre- it, soma one
that wis acting in bis stead amiably remarked
that we could take a positi in in a corner and
await his coming. We did so, white lie pro
ve? led immediately to station our escort be
tween s and the door, i i order, as we suppose .
to protect us from the fury of any enemy that
might have beer, lurking without. Consider-:
ate, wasn't it. We thought so at least. Weil, j
we wait s! for a considerable length of time for :
the dispenser of our rights to make Ins appear
ance; he didn't appear, however, but quite a
number of individuals honored in the sam •
way we were, with a:i invitation and an escort
did, among them an old veteran whom wo shall I
remember as long as m. mory lasts, in conse- ;
quence of the smell he brought with him, and !
the degree to which ho was overcome by grat- ;
itude—or whiskey. After waiting a while '
long -r, we concluded that it iiie government J
wanted us to get an insight into its military f
prisons, Bastilr-.-C&c. for the benefit of the Lu- j
man race, it-had bettor be bringing them along, \
and was about tailing our amiable friend be- :
hind the desk that such was our conclusion,
when he politely invited us to take a new es
cort that was ji> read in-, a and proceed hume* j
fiotdf to the qoUttn prepared for our recep- i
tion. We did so, in company with several i
others and the veteran aforesaid, and in due i
time r ached our destination, into which we 1
were ushered by a file of soldiers, the bayonets
of whose guns protected our rear from flank
! attacks from any quarter. The door was elo- j
sed behind us, and two rugged looking sons of I
Mars stationed on either side thereof. There
we were; and there, too, were scores of other
recipients of the blessings ot this great freo
country —men of all classes, colors and condi
tions, from the aged father, whose gray hairs
' plead piteously for him, to the youth scarcely
out of his teens, niggers and whites, drunk
men and sober men, all tumbled in promiscu
ously, numbering upwards of an hundred.
After satisfying the curiosity of our new as
sociates as far as possible by answering the ma
ny questions put to us, we set about making
in examination of the habitation of which we
had so lately become an inmate. The main i
room, termed in military'parlance, "guard
house," is about fifty feet long by twenty broad,
built of plank, about twelve feet high. There
are three windows, with lattice work of iron
across them, which answers as a checkerboard
for those who desire to play checkers with their
nose, and also for light and ventilation. The
floor, which was laid flat on the earth, in order
to ?ave tlie "government" the expense of sleep
ers or joists, is made to answer a triple pur
pose—floor, seats and beds. (We do not wish
it to be understood that persons there are com
pelled to sleep upon the floor in order to atone
i for offence given to some of the agents of the
"government." Not at alt—if is entirely ow

We had about finished making an examina
tion, when the order came to prepare for din
. tier, and ;• >ng with the rest, niggers, drunks
■ and all, we inarched forth to receive a piece uf

J was called "bean ? up"—we couldn't seethe

had been in the service several -months, that
forthe purpose of economizing still farther, the

seeking for a friend whom they might "devour"
with kindness ? Didn't we turn "loyal" and
denounce "copperheads" and democrats, as wo

chewed at the dry end of a burnt crust ?
Di.ln't we a wear arbitrary arrests were right?
Didn't we conclude that I'rovost Marshals, spies

a brilliant doss to a "long and useful career in

I in' "its ainbomiuable ' ' Your lather told old j

i sent teu fort warren. Most ail the ofi.vrs j
j deown south from these parts has been sendiu'
! home pyannevs and pictersand marvel stutters;
; but I think they'd a good deal better send on
. silk dresses an' jewelry, and let the sojers burn
j the stutters and pic tors. Your father says
i you must hurry up an' git. the south oaterui
| naicd as soon as you can, for men we're coai
in' deown there teu confiscate an' locate, and
I so is most of the folks abeout here, an' yeour
; father wants yeou teu let him know the very
mini! they're exterminate 1 and subjugated, so
i he can git down there ahead o' anybody else.
Kesire .-ay- don't forget some silk dresses for
I her, an ! yeour brother Job says, if you can
j captor a good gold watch an' a diamond pin-he
: he don't mind allowing yeou a second-hand
price for 'em in petroleum stock which he's
: president of the company. Exterminate as
! many of the gothic vandals as you can, and
j captor all the property yeou can find, and
' don't forgit teu read your bible steddy, is the
wish an' prayer of yeour affecshenit mother.
I Oh !p.s. I forgot teu tell you that deacon
; Pardon's darter, Mehitable, isgoin' teu be mar
! ried next harvest time teu a colored man that
j skewered his libity from bondige in the southern
; klimes, by set tin fire to his gothic master's man
j shun and burnin' up the family, an' skewrin'
; their jewiry an' then 'scapiu' inteu Massachus
j etc, the sylum o' the pressed colored man.—
j lie's i.ood an' noble an' pious though he ain't

j reound teu eour heous tother evenin' on a visit;
the room was pooty warm an' he smelt a little
leoud, but Mehitable says she's fond o' the sent,
'cause mister Generation that wrote a book a
bcout it, says it's healthy.
Old copperhead Stanchard slept in a short
spell arter they went eout, and we couldn't beat
it out of his stubborn head that there wasn't
a skunk in the cellar. Mehit says that Mr.
Swankey (that's her colored beau' 3 name) lio
meo Swankey, is goin' to study for a lawyer.—
Mehit's a learoin' him his letters, an' she's only j
been tew weeks at it, an' he knows A and VV j
and izzard when he sees 'em aready, an' yet j
that abomnable pizen old copperhead, old j
Stanchard, says when that nigger learns teu

single glance at the above exhibit will convince
the most stupid read-;* that all the more impor
tant art.- r- if i .J (>.ev. rcui-nt are entirely in
the hands of New England Yankees. Look,
for instance, at .he great Empire Slate—put
■A; as it i • vrtth a chairman-hip of " Private
Land Claims.' 1 and the Oi l K ystone with on?,
on "Patents and the Pamni, Oliicc 1" At the
same time New England has control of all the
military and financial affairs! How do our
Pennsylvania ' Dutchmen" like the picture? Is
it not pleasant to be under Yankee domina
The injustice of allowing New England thus
to monopolize the legislation af the country —
not to mention the disgrace of it—will be more
manifest by consulting the following figures.—
By the census of 1600, the six New England
Stale?— Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont,
Massachusetts. Rhode Island and Connecticut
had a white population of 3,110,57*2. By the
same census Pennsylvania had a white popula
tion of 2,84'),2C7 —or only 251,305 less than
these whole six States. Iri the same year New*
York had 3.851,750 —or seven hundred and
ntj iho ■suml one hundred or '■.> u jht (720,-
1" - j pa. than the Yankee States!
Again. The six New Ei land States polled,
at the late presidential election, 515,050 votes.
At the same clecti 11 Rtnusyhaeia p lied 372,-
. 0 4 —or jiffy s-. rtn thousand an Ijiftg seven votes
of Massachusetts, gives the key to this result
--their population is superabundantly female;
the males bang largely engaged down south,
cotton speculating ami reconstructing rebel
States by "conventions," etc.] New York, at
the same election, polled a vote of 730.721
or two hundred and twenty-five thousand and seven
ty one (225,07 1) V OTES MORE THAN ALL THE YAN
ICEE STATES COMBINED ! And yet, after these
facts, these two great States are tendered the
chairmanships oi' committees to deliberate upon
"private claims" and mechanical "models !"
But. as these are days of humiliation, Pennsyl
vania, as well as her sister States, must bow
down and be silent.— Pat. <s• Union.
