Notfaibg is onr own; we hold onr pleasures
Jnst a little while ere they have fled;
One by on<| life robs ns of, onr treasures; '
Nothing is our own excppttho dead.
They are ours, and hold vfith faithful keeping,
Safe forever, all they took away;
Cruel life can never stir that sleeping,
Cruel time can never seize that prey.
Justice pales; truth lades; stars fall from heaven;
Human are the great whom we revere;
No true crown of konor can be given.
Till the wreath lies on a funeral bier.
How the children leave ns; and no traces
Linger of that smiling angel band; ~
Gone, forever gone, and In their places,
Weary men hud anxious women stand..
Yet wo have some little ones, still ours;
Thej havekeptthe smile we know,
Which wo kissed one day, and bid with flowers
On their dear white laces long ago.
When our joy is lost, and life will take it,
Then no memory of the past remains ;
Save with some strange, cruel sting, that makes it
Bitterness beyond all present pains.
Death, more fender-hearted, leaves to sorrow
Still the radiant shadow—fond regr^j;
Wo shall find, in some bright fair to-nfcrrow,
Joy that he has taken, living yet
I love ours, and do wo dream we know It, ' j
Bound with all our heart-strings, all onr own.
And cold and cruel dewn may show it,
Only dead hearts forsake its never;
Dove, that to death’s loyalcarehas fled,
Is thus consecrated onre forever.
And no chance can rob ns of our dead.
So whin fate comes to besiege our city;
Dim our gold, or make oar flowers fall.
Death, the angel comes In love,and pity,
And to save onr treasures, claims them oil.

Leaving on onr lives a stain.

THE HEATH STEHGGEE.
AT BUENA VISIA/ t
BY QEORGE LIPPABQ. U,
It was near :the setting of the sun, when
the Man of Palo Alto, Resacade la Palma
and Monterey, saw the clouds come down
on the last'charge Buena Vista, that a
scene worthy pf the days of Washington,
closed thefdayjin glory. •
Do you behold that dark ravine, deep
and sunken between these precipitous
banks ? Herd ho sunlight comes, for
these walls of rock wrap the pass in eter
nal twilight, i, Withered trees grow be
tween the masses of granite and scattered
sfone makes the bed .of the ravine uncer
tain and difficult for the tread.
Hark ! That cry, that rushiike a moun
tain torrent bursting its barriers, and
quick as the lightning flashes from dark
ness, the dismal ravine is bathed in red
battle light, From its northern extremi
ty, a confused band of Mexicans, an army
in itself came yelling along the pass,
treading one another down as they fly,
their banners, spears, horses and men, tos
sed together in, inexplicable confusion.
By thousands they rush into the shad
ows of the pass,; their‘dark faces reddened
by the sheeted A blaze of musketry. The
caverns of the ravine send back the roar
of the panic, and the grey rocks are wash
ed by their. bloßd. ,
But the little band who pursues this ar
my-—Who are they ? You may see in
their ilim heroic ranks, the volunteer cos
tumeofllUnoiSand.JLentuckey. At their
head, urging hip men with shouts, rides
the gallant McKee, by his side young
Henry Olay, that broad fhrehead, which
reminds you of his ; father, -bathed in the
glare ofhisjswosd as it quivers on high
ere it falls to kill. . There too, .Vwil&fig.
ure, red with his own blood of Mexican
foes, his uniform rent in tatters, his arms
bared to, this shoulders, striking terrible
blows with his good sword—Harden, of
of Illinois, comes gallantly forward.
The small, but iron band, hurl the Mex
icans irom the heights into the ravine,
and follow up the chase, far down into the
eternal twilight ;of that moutain pass.
Look! As their musketry streams its
steady blaze, you would think that one
ceaseless sheet of lightning bathed these
rooks in flame. :
• .Over the; Mexicans, man and horse,
hufled back; in mad disorder, the Ameri
cans dash on their way, never heeding the
overwhelming numbers of their foes, never
heeding the palpitating forms beneath
their feet, with bayonet and rifle, and
sword, they press steadily on, their wel
known, banner streaming evermore, over
The howl of the dying war horse—
hark I—Does it not chill your blood to

seemed to fill his uvery vein, and dart a
‘deadly fire from his eyes!
At that moment he looked like the old

At with his thigh splintered by a

the bed of his glory■.
But gathered around him a guard of
breasts and one or two of their number
carried him tenderly along—these men of
Kentucky fought around their iallen hero,
and as retreating step by step, they launch
ed their swords and bayonets into the faces
of the foe, they said with every blow—
“ Henry Clay."
It was wonderful to see how that name
nerved their arms, and called a smile to'
the face of the dying hero. How it would
have made the heart of the old man 0 f
Ashland throb, to have heard his name,
yelling as a battle cry, down the shadows
of that lonely pass.
Along the ravine, and up the harrow i

on, and tracks the way with his blood.—
Faster and thicker the Mexicans swarm—
they see the circle around the fallen man,
even see his p.aje face, uplifted as a smile
crosses its fading lineaments, and like a
a pack of wolves, scenting the frozen trav
eler at dead of night they come howling
. up the rocks, and charge the devoted band
with one dense hi ass of bayonets, i
Up and on ! the light shines yonder, on
the topmbst rocks if the ravine, It is the
light of the setting sun. Old Taylor’s
eye is upon that rock, and there we will
fight our way and die in the old man’s
It was a murderous way, that path'up
the steep bank of the ravine! Littered
with dead, slippery with blood, it grew
flacker every moment with Mexicans, and
the defenders of the wounded hero, fell
one by one, into the chasm yawning all
round. , ®
At last they reached the light, the
swords and bayonets glitter in the sight of
the contending armies, and the bloody
contest roars towards the topmost rock.
Then it was that gathering up his dy
ing frame—armed with supernatural vigor
—young Clay started from the arms or his
supporters, and stood with outstretched
hand in .the light of the setting sun. It
was a glorious sight which he saw there,
amid the rolling battle clouds; Santa
Anna’s formidable array hurled back in
to ravine and gorge by Taylor’s little
band. But a more glorious thing it was
to see that dying man standing for the
last time, in the light of that sun, which
shall never raise for him again.
. “Leave me!” he shrieked, as he fell
back on the sod—“l inust die, and I
yi'J here ! Peril- your lives no lone

The Mexicans crowded on, hungry for
blood; Even as he spoke, their bay
glistening by hundreds, were leveled
at the the throats of the devoted band.
By the mere force of their over

One lingered, a Brave man, who had

Lifting his ashy face into the light,
he turned Bis eyes upon his comrade’s
face, placed the pistols ip his hands—
and fell back to his death.
That comrade, with the pistols in his
grasp, fought his way alone to the top
most rock of the path, ' and. only onse
looked back. He saw a quivering form
canopied by bayonets—he saw those'out
stretched hands grapglmgiwith points' of

the life of-young Henry Clay.
. take it first and last all through
life, it is really amazing what a raft of
people we’ye heard and never seen. Es
pecially in hotels. v ’
It has beep Mace Sloper’s luck to be
frequently quartered in rooms with noth
ing but a door betwixt his room and his
neighbors y and whenever this, happened
he has been about as cer
■tam to hear, willing or nnwilling, consid
erable that wasn’t spoken to him. Par
ticularly when girls wereins|te next room !
No t giving myself credit ftir any, especial
cuteness, I can’t brag of ever having got
up guy wise theory on the subject -; but it
does seem to'mo that the wild
est, and/ most amazing speebheb/I ever
heard in all my life from mortal lips
always pome from people I couldn’t see.—
Moreover—and ’n ; agree with
me if he’ll rake out. his own* experience a
little—l maintain that no tWo'people Pan
talk in the dark to another as they do in
the light. Report such a talk* and read
it to them, and they’ll as soon believe that
they’ve been talking Injun. That’s so /
Which reminds Mace Sloper of a talk
he once heard in a New Jersey hotel. • I
had quietly smpked myself into a regular
nap such as the good alone, enjoy, when .1
.was awoke by hearing some body enter the
next room. Apparently he woke some
body else np too, who was sleeping, there
in advanpe-of him.
“ Hullo thar ?”• says;tlfp mama-bed..

“ In-comes are Welcome,” answered No.

But if you desire illuminosity—i—”
“ Stranger No. 1.: “hold thar!

“ How do you cognovit that ?” was the
(hmazed reply. ; '
Cog thunder /” was, the; response.
“ How do I know how you look ? Why,

Drummon lights would be darkness on
your face arter such a blaze of language
as that. ‘llluminosity' and ‘ cognovit!'
That shows you've got a ca’pet-bag in
your hand and a whiskey bottle in it.
There was a sound like the pop of a
cork, and a clear case drinking to better

GENEBAL JACKSON’S WIPE.
Many of our public men have been
blessed with wives and mothers who were
the ornaments of their se?r, and their quiet
and ennobling influence contributed large
ly to the subsequent greatness of their
children and husbands. Mr. Pafton tells
the following story of General Jackson’s
When General Jackson was, a candi
date for the Presidency, in. 1828, not only
did the party opposed to him abase him
for his public acts, which, if unconstitu
tional of violent, Were a legitimate sub
ject of reprobation, but they defamed the
character, of his wife. Quppne occasion a
newspaper published ashville waai
laid upon the GeneJPw table. HI
glanced over it, and his eye fell upon an
article in which the character of Mrs.
Jackson was violently assailed, So sOon
as he read it he sent for his trusty old
“ Saddle my horse,” said he to him in a
whisper, “and put my holsters bn him;”
Mrs. Jackson 'watched him, and, though
she heard not a word, she thought she saw
mischief in his eye. The General went out
after a few minutes, when she toofc up the
paper and understood everything. She
ran out to the south gate of the" yard at
the Hermitage, by which the General
would have to pass. She had not been
there more than a few seconds before 'the
General rode up, with the countenance! of
a madman. She placed herself before his
horse and cried out. . ~
“0, General! don’t go to Nashville.
Let that poor editor live—let that poor
editor live !” He replied; “"How chine
you to know what lam going for ?” She
answered: “ I saw it all in his paper after
you pent out; put up your horse mid go
back;” < He replied furiously ; “But!
will go-f-get oqt of my way P- Instead of
doing this, she grasped hin
both hands. He cried to
go my hpree : I’ll have his •
the villain that reriles niy wife shall not
live.” 7 ■=■■■• ■
She grasped the but thedighter,
and began to expostukte with him, saying,
that sbe was the one who ought to be an

he should forgive, if be

she so worked upon her husband that be
seemed mollified to a eeftain extent. She
wound up by saying, , “ No, General, you

Captain Brady and the KedsHhs—
In the North American, received this
morning, we find a communication from
MrC Rea, in which he details a thrilling
incident in the life of the celebrated In
dian scont Captain Brady, related to him
by the captain of the canal boat on which
he recently traveled from New Brighton
to New Castle. The Captain was once
taken prisoner by the redskins at a point
about five or six miles above the month
of Beaver, river, and his 'capture is thus
described by the skipper: “Brady fiad
never been .taken by the Indians before,
an<i was this time led into their hands by
the too eager'Oursuit of a wounded buck. ‘
Ho had wounded a deer, and was follow*
ing it with loping gait in which
he travoledi when he was rapidly pressing
On his game, or an enemy* Coming out
from the hills suddenly, uponwhatisnbw
called “ Walnut Bottom,,” ho was seized,
thrown from his feet, and pinioned to the
earth by a half a dozen stalwart sayages.
One reason, doubtless, why Brady was so
incautious, was the fact that peace then
nominally prevailed between the whites,
and the Indians. . This was in 1789,' apd
late in the autumn of that year, >Pwt
Mclntosh had been abandoned in
Lukens’ Blockhouse, built where ffew
Brighton now stands, was only nominally
occupied. The Indians had stolen, there
fore into the neighborhood, and form
ed an encampment without detection.
They were upon a hunting expedition,
and had with them a number of wopicn.
and children. As soon as Brady was seis
ed, disarmed and' bound, the Joy of the
Indians knew no limit. It was In dian
their captive, pleaded that peace existed.
Their great roe was in thoin power, and
they resolved to burn him at the stajee
that very day. -After the usual prepara
tions were made, he was led to the place
of execution. When he was tied, apd
just as the flames began to crackle about
him, he contrived to seize a knife front an
Indian .squaw near by, and in one instant
was free. He. snatched On Indian
child from the arms of its mother, threw
it into the fire, and, during thqponfrision
consequent upon the attempt it
from, the flames, bounded ajray pith a
fleetnessto be equalled only by the train
ed frontiersmen of that dav
, y. „
Unarmed as he was, save with the knife,
he had to depend upon his speed for bis
life. The Indians, understanding wcdl
that he would make for the block hpmte?
kept down the N arrows, on the west Bide
of the river (a narrow defile evento this
day, only affording room enough ufter
heavy cutting for a wagon road.) ’' They
drove him up the prest of a narrow ridge
overlooking Eallston. To deapepd the
rocks opposite our block house, rising as
they did perpendicularly for about’ forty
feet or more, seemed impossible. (Hie
Indians, therefore, kept on at full speed,
hoping to catch him as ho descended Fall*

the declivity becomes inore gradual. He

imstances by which he was surrounded.
v# Jhind hini the woods. were swarming
with armed foes. Others had passed in
front of him, and cut off f retreat tp the •
southward. He stood .forj>- moment over
looking the whole vallejriikom his eyrie.
A grape vine, gunning along the ground
for some distance, and closely twined to
the limbs of a tree overhanging the pre
cipice, providentially chanced' to be fit'

the tree yielded, and he was within ten
feet of narrow shelf in the ledge, from "
which, if he reached it he could rapidly
descend to the foot of the hill. He drop
pea, and although "bruised and cut by the /
fall, in ten minutes he had reached the y
waters’ edge, crpssed the river, and
safely housed in the stockade fort. /Two
years afterwards, within'five hundred feet
of where he had made' this terrible leap,
he amply avenged himself by,/cutting off -
a band of thirty of his red foCs, and among

thrilling traditions with which this valley

the bonnet and then he complimented the
