Sleeps in heir narrow home:
Kemonibur ’twas a mother gare
The gift to one' she’d die to save.’
That mother sought a pledge of love
The holiest for her son;
And from this gift of God above,
She. chose ngoodiy one;
She cbosefbr her beloved boy
The source of life and light and Joy.
And bade him keep the gift—that when

In ber eternal home ;
She Sfid bin .filth in that would be
Sweet incCnie to her meiuory.
And Should the scoffer, iu his pride,
Laugh that foud gift to scorn,
And bid him cast that pledge aside,
That he ftotu youth had borne I
She bode hint pause, and his breast

Or, the Disguised Duke.
My siory Opens ip the classic freeslinks
of Bosriug. In the parlor of aristocratic
mnnahon on Bacon street sits a lovely
young lady whose hair is covered ore with
the fronts of il7 summers. She has just
sot donio at the Piany & issingin the pop
lar peace celled Swells ot the Notion, in
which tells how with Pensiv Thawt
she wondered by a C beet shores 'The
Son js settia'in its horrizou and itsglorius
lite potes in k golden lueller find through
the winders and makes her twicet as boo
tiful aa be 4, which is onnessary. She is
magnifisuntly dressed up in Berage basque
with Poplin trimmins, More Antique edges
.and 3 i ply carpeting. Her dress contains
12 flounders, brilliantly ornamented with
horn buttons and her shoes are red mo
rockef with gold spangles onto them.*—
Presently she presses her hands to her
biizzom and starts up in an excited man
ner. “ Meihinks,” she whispers in clarion
tones, f< I see a voice I” A noble youth ot
27 summers scrapes the mud from his
butes in tbc hall and enters. He is atti
red in a red shirt and black trowels’ which
last air turned up over his bates, sndbi B
hatiifww|tchi.ngly conked on osib dddrf’
his ohldcid hed. In sooth he wapanpbjh
chDfi. ; Oreiee, in its parmiest days near
[independent in eveeythinq.]
projuced a more gallenter herow than
Moses. The young lady gazes upon him
for a few periods, clasps her hands
er, strikes her position, and rollin her Fs
wildly like a expirin infantile cow, cries :
“ Ha ! do my Fs deceive my earsight ?
That frame 1 them store clothes! those
voice lit is—it is mo own, me own Moses!”
and he folded her to his hart. “ Me
thinks I shall swoon,” she scd, and pretty
soon she swowndid.
Was Moses or Noble Birth?
Moses was foreman of Ingitlc Kumpany
No. 40. The 40’s had jest ben bavin a
pleasant fite with the 50’s on the day I
introduce Moses to my readers. Ho had
his arms full of troffees, to wit : 4 scalps,
51’s, 3 fingers, 7 ears, which he had
chawed off, &c., &o. When Elizy (for
that waa the lovely young lady’s name)
rekivered from her swoon she asked ?
“ How hast the battle gone ? Tell me !”
“ Elizy,” said the bravo youjng man,
drawing hisself up to his full Kite, “ve
chawed ’em up and smashed their old
mersbeen all to pieces S”
“ I thank the gods,” she cried. “ Thou
didst full-well, and hence4th I ware thee
iu me hart of harts! And‘Moses,” she
contiunered, loyin her hed confidintly'agin
his weskit “ dost know I sometimes think
that thou wastest of noble birth ?”
“No,” sez he, wildly ketchiug hold of
hisself, “ you don’t say so ?”
“ Indeed do I,” she sed. Your dead
grandfather’s spirit earnest to me the other
nite, and scs he, “Moses is a Disguised
Juke 1”
“ You mean Duke,” ses Moses.
“ Dost not all the actors call it Juke ?”
she sed sternly.
That settled the matter.
“ I hav thought of this thing afore,”
sed Moses abstractly, “ If it is so, thus it
must be! 2B or not 2B —"that airs the
question! But no more of this now.—
Dry up. O life—life, you’re too many
for me. He tore out some of his pretty
yeller hair, stamped on the floor wildly,
and was gone.
The Piedt Foiled.
Sixteen long and weary years had
elapst since the sceens narrowated in the
larst chapter took place. A noble ship,
the Sary Jane is sailin from France to
Ameriky through the Wabash Canuwl.—
A pirut ship is in hot pursoot of the Saty
Jane. The capting of the S. J. looks fa
tceged & as though ho had lost all his pa
runts. The Pirut is close on to him &he
is about given in, when a fine looking
feller in russitbutes and a buffaler overcut
rushes forred and sez to the capting, sez
“ Old man !go down stares. Retire to
the starberd bulkhead. He take charge
of this Bote!”
“ Owdashus cuds ?” sed the •Capting,
away with thee or I shall do mur-rer
“ Scarcely/’ sea the noble feller, and
he drew a diamond Lilted sword and cat
the captings head off.
“ 0 tliat I should liv to become a ded
boddy,” sed the capting, as he fell to the
deck. He expired shortly afterwards, be
ing fatally killed.
“ People !” sed the noble feller, “ line
tbe Juke de Moses !”
“ Old boss, methinks thow art blowin 1”
sed a youth of 40 summers, find the Juke
cut off his head likewise. “ Don’t pript
any verses on my deth in the noospapers,”
screamed the unfortnit young mau as he
fel ded on the deck, “furif yer do He
haunt yur!”
“ Peo*ple continnered the Juke, “I
alone kin save you from von bluddy and
unprincipled piruts ! What hoc there!
A peek of oats!” The oats was immejitiy
brawt. The Juke took them and bravely
mounting,the jibpoop he threw them onto
the towpatb. In a minit the leading boss
hitch to the Pirut Bote cum along, stopt,
and commenced far to devour the oats !
The driver swore and hollered at him ter
rible but he wouldn’t .badge an inch. —
Meanwhile the Sary Jane, her bosses on
tbe clean jump, was fast leavin the Pirut
ship I x
“ Onct agin do I escape deth!” sed the
Juke between his clcbchttooth, still on the
N Tbs Wahdbebes Bktohs.
The Juke was Moses the Sassy. He
had bin in France about sixteen years and
now he was at home agin in Posting. He
had sum truble in gitting hisself acknowl
eged Juke of France, as the Orleans Di
nasty and Borebonea were fbrnest him,
but he finally cankered, and, now he had
crossed the deep blue C to get bis own Eh
zy. She new him at onot, aa oho of his
ears and a portion of his nose had bin
chawed m in his fights with opposition
fireman durin boyhood’s sunny hours.—
They were, marrydid and went to France,
to reside in their ducal Palis which'was
got up regandiis of expense. They had
several children ’ and lived] to a greeuold
small,” as the Pmck aes;' i ■;

this week contains ah obituary notice, by
Rev. A. Wright, of the Indiana M. E.
Church, of Isaac Hamblin, Sr., who died
at his residence near Bloomfield, Indiana,
a few months since, aged about 86 years.
Mr. Hamblin was,# man of deep piety and
unquestionable veracity. Ho'Was in the
battle of the Thames, and the writer gives
the following as his statement in regard
to the manner" in which Tecumseh was
. He says he was standing but a few feet
from Col. Johnson when he: fell, and in
full view, and saw the whole of that part
of the battle. He was well acquainted
with Tecumseh, having seen him before
the War, and having been a prisoner sev
enteen days, and received many a cursing
from him. He thinks that Tecumseh
thought Johnson was HarrisOu, as he of
ten heard the chief sweat; that he would
have Harrison’s scalp, and seemed to have
a special hatred toward hipi. Johnson’s
horse fell under him, he himself being
also deeply wounded; in the fall he lost
his sword, his large pistols were empty,
and he was entangled with his horse on
the ground. Tecumseh had dr4d his rifle
at him, and when he saw ;him fall, he
threw down, his gun and bounded forward
like a tiger sure of his prey. Johnson
had only a side pistol ready for use. He
aimed at the chief over the Head of his
horse, and shot near the center of his fore
head. When the ball struck, it seemed
to him that the Indian jumped with his
head full fifteen feet into the sic; as soon
as he struck the ground, a little French
man ran his bayonet into him, and pinned
him fast to the ground.”
The Value or a Lottery Prize.
A New Orleans letter in the Charleston
(S. G.) Courier, relates an incident which
illustrates in a striking manner the evil
that may be produced by one lottery tick
et. A young man of good family in New
Orleans, who is passionately fond of gam
bling, was playing cards with considerable
ill-luck, and as a last throw, having lost
all his money, staked a lottery ticket. He
lost. After the game was over, the win
ner having no faith in lotteries, proposed
to throw dice for it, at twenty-five cents a
chance. A bystander, “ a poor fellow who
never owned a hundred dollars in his life,”
accepted the offer, and won the ticket.—
A few days afterwards the Havana steam
er arrived, v and lo ! the ticket had drawn
$25,000. The original who had
thus thrown away a fortune/ on hearing
the news, was taken with an attack of
bruin fever, and is even now in a sad con
dition; It is feared he will remain an idiot.
The lucky drawer of the prize immediate
ly invested a round sum in ah assortment
of the most flashy jewelry and
and has been leading ever since a life of
continued revelry; he has bpcome a fast*
man, and is 1 following fast the road to ruin.
The disbeliever in lotteries cannot forgive
himself, and whenever be meets a friend
stops him and tells him the story,
become sneb a mania with l b'im that bis
friends avoid turn, and turn the corner as
soon as they see him comiiig. He bas
bad several quarrels at the gaming table,
where the sight of the carps inevitably
brings the oft-told table to his lips. Thus
one prize in a lottery has mijade one man
an idiot, started another op*the road to
ruin, and crazed a third. Atorrible price
for one prize, certainly. Jl ‘

to fiud a useful penny at bottom of it.
