Little songster of the grove,
Warble still thy songs of love.

Strive* to get thee i-j hi* fear —
Drawing nigh and nigher still,
Till he stops thy little hill
Of its note* of highest praise
To the Maker of its lay*.
Cruel nu»n*U-r! canst thou lake
Such a harmless one complete.
Who was sent to sing llis praise,
Ail it* harmless pleasant day.- ?
In the grove and hi the bower;
3u the sunshine and the shower;
In the trees of blooming green,
There its beauty may be seen.
Warble still, our little friend,
Till thy days -hall have an end.
If the serpent come not nigh
To rob thee of thy joyous gleo s
High upon that blooming tree
Wo may* still thy beauty see—
Higher Still and higher yet.
Till tlmn meet a bitter.fate.
Little friend, we wish to hear
AH thy songs throughout the year;
Though'bchcath thy watchful eye
Lies the serpent guarding shy,
All thy ways of pleasant song
Moving on hi* poisonous fang;
Higher still aud higher yet.

A little pauper-boy sat down on a curb
stone and ' tried to think. His feet were
bare, red, and cold, but never mind that—
the chill air penetrated his ragged gar
ments, but never mind that—he wanted
to think. Who are these people passing
hint, looking so warm and comfoitable?
What did it mean, that they, should be
KUppy and cheerful, and he so sad ? None
of them had such-.,heavy hearts; that he
was'surc of. He looked up into the cold
blue sky. What was it. and who lived up
there ? Somebody had once said that God
would take care of him. Where was God ?
Why didn’t he take care of him ? Oh !if
he could only see God for one little min
ute I or the angel that the good men told
him of when his mother died I- Did folks
ever sec God ?—did they ever see angels ?
An organ-grinder came near and took
his stand. The melody ho played light
ened the little boy’s heart somewhat, but
it didn’t warm him or make him less hun
gry. He kept shivering, in spite of the
music, and he felt all alone!—so despair
ing ! Then the organ-grinder passed away
and no one heeded the little child sitting
on the curb-stone. The carriages passed
by, and the carts, and a company of sol
diers, but it was all dumb show to him—
he was trying to think, with such a dull
pain at his heart. Presently three or four
coarsc-looking boys gathered behind him,
and winked and "laughed at each other.—
In another moiueut the youngest gave a
thrust, and over went the poor, homeless,
ragged little child into the'gutter. 000
scream, one sob of anguish, as he gath
ered himself upland looked after the boys
now running away with shouts of mirth..
Oh 1 how cruel it seemed in them —how
cruel! The hungry little boy walked on,
slowly, sobbing and shivering to himself.
He didn’t know what he was walking for;
or why he was living; he felt out of place
-—a poor forlorn spirit that had lost its
way—a bruised reed that any one might
bleak—a little heart so tender that a look
was anguish; how much more a blow!
The little boy stood at last near the cor
ner of a street. An apple-stand, at which
he gazed with longing eyes, not far off,
was tended by a cross-looking old man.—r
There were cakes on the stand, and the
poor little mouth of the homeless child
watered as ho saw one boy after another
deposit his penny and take a cake. He
had no penny,; and though there vas hun
ger in'his eyes, the cross-looking old man
never offered him a morsel.
The tempter came. The old man’s back
was turned, and a vile boy at tb'e side of
the homeless child nudged his elbow.—
‘•'You takfc one,” he whispered, “and I’ll
give you half.”
The little child gazed at him steadily.
He saw something in the bleared eyes that
made him shrink—something that set his
heart to beating.
“ I toll you to hook one,” whispered the
boy; I won’t tell, and we’ll go away and
eat it.”
“ I don’t want to steal,” said the home
less child.
“Gh • you fool!” muttered the brutal
tempter, and smote him in the. eyes, his
heavy hand dealing a blow .that sent the
poor little child against the wall, his whole
frame quivering with anguishr The terri
ble blow had almost blinded him for a mo
ment; a great sob came up in his
“Oh ! what have I done to be treated so ?
There never, never was a God, or He
would not let me suffer bo- —and that be
cause I refused to be wicked.”
I don’t believe that ever a man, in his
deadliest bereavements, suffered more than
that sad little child. His heart was liter
ally swelling with grief, and, though he
could not reason about it, he felt as if
there was a great and.sore injustice some
He started to cross the street. A dark
blinding pain still made bis poor temples
“Back! back! Good heavens! the
child is under his feet! Back ! back !”
“ Oh! mamma, it is our horses run
over a poor little boy! Oh ! mamma,
“Is he hurt much, coachman?’’ The
woman’s face is ashy pale. “ Yes, he is
hurt badly; take him right in ; don’t wait;
carry him right in and up stairs. It was
your carelessness; the child shall be at
tended to.”
There is no anguish now. Perhaps God
saw that he had borne all he could, and so
took the poor little broken heart there to
|Jow very white and quiet! “Oh ! a
sweet face ! a sweet, sweet face!” mur
mured/hc woma,n, bending over the boy,
and tears fell on his forehead, but he did
not feel them.
“Oh ! the poor boy sobs Nelly, “ the
poor little boy ! I wish he had kept on
the side-walk ; I wish he had stayed at
home with his mother.”
Alas ! in this world there was no mother
to keep him.
The doctor came; he said the boy was
not dead, but would very likely die. There
was a hospital near; the poor thing had
better be sent there. But the good woman
would not allow that. She would care for
him herself, she said; he had been injured
by one of her horses, and she felt that it
was her duty to attend him. Besides, it
was likely that the child had no mother.
Such a boy as he, with a face so sweet and
girlish, so pure and loveable, would never
be sent on the streets in that manner if
he had a mother. Besides, (and hero her
tears fell,) there was a little mound not
yet green, over just such a child. No, no,
it was not in her heart to put the poor
wounded boy away. Let him stay, whether
he lived or died.
. The weary, weary days passed on. One
morning the little boy opened his dim
blue eyes, but ho did not know himself.
His glance fell wearily on his hands.; —
There were white bands around his wrists,
with ruffles on them. The bed was so
snowy white, too, and a crimson light fell
over everything.
“Dear God, I am in Heaven!” mur
mured the child; “ yes, God will take care
of me now.”
What visions of loveliness glanced forth
from the shadow behind the bed! The
rich curls fell around a face of exquisite
beauty; the beaming eyes looked love and
gladness upon him.
“O, yes indeed, there is an angel S” he
said softly, “ I am glad. They won’t
knock me over again ; they won’t want
me to steal apples here; and perhaps I
shall never die again. Now I want to
see my mother.”
“ My dear boy,, are you better this mor
ning?” asked a low, soft voice.
He turned slowly, wearily.
“ Is it mother ?” he murmured.
“ 0 yes,” and there were quick sobs
and tears; “yes, my little child, I will be
your mother, and you shall be my son.—
Will you love me dearly ?”
“ Yes, I do love you mother. Is this’
Heaven ! no, darling, it is earth; but
God sent you here to be loved and cared
for. See, hero is a little sister, and you
will be very happy with her. Kiss him,
Nelly. 1
Her rosy lips touched his pale ones, and
a heavenly smile lighted up his face. The
past was not forgotten, but it was gone.—
No more mouldy crusts, oaths, harSh words
and blows. .No more begging at basement
doors, and looking half famished, to envy
a dog gnawing a bone in the streets. No
more fear of rude children, who never
knew where their own hearts laid. No
more sleeping on door-steps, and listening
in terror to the drunken quarrels of the
vicious and depraved.
Yes, the past was gone, and in the rosy
future were love, home, even God and the
angels. Certainly, sweet spirits bad exor
[INDEPENDENT in everything.]
cised; a watchful care over that child, and
guided him out of seeming evil into posi
tive good. Surely, henceforth he would
put his hand trustingly in theirs, and turn
his face heavenward. Yes, it was so to
be. The dear, teachable child—a jewel
picked from the mire, a brand snatched
from the burning—was yet- to illumine
the dark paths of this world with his holy
teachings. Like a dove who was to go
forth over the waters, and find the olive
branph with which to--gSrland his glad ti
dings. Blessings, then, on all who hold
their arms out toward needy little children,
making their homes arks of refuge.—
Beautiful stars shall they have in their
crowns of rejoicing, for surely there is no
jewel brighter in all the world, and per
haps, in ail eternity, than the soul of a
little child.— Wesleyan Methodist Maga
What is to become of love-making?—
Does anybody make love these times ?
Are these heavenly evenings to be thrown
away in bitter and fierce discussions about
the war ? Must the good Cupid put on a
bobtailed coat and shoulder a musket ?
Are we to resign our pleasant trees with
“ one fair daughter and no more ?" May
we not again sit in the shadow of the
moonlight, and whisper never to be forgot
ten words ? May we not walk and dream
and muse again; as of yore ? Must all the
sweet sounds of love, as they float on the
air, be quenched rudely by “ right shoul
der shift arms,” “ right flank by right
face,” “ four files into line march V r —
Shall not her dear head rest upon our
shoulder ? Must all our thoughts be given
up to “ rations,” and uniforms and bat
tles ?
Lovers, where are you ?
There are sad faces in the Street to
night, and to-night means every night.—
Darling girls in couples are walking; up
and down through the quiet streets, striv
ing to look happy and cheerful, but ready
to gush with grief at a moments notice. —
What shall be done for them ? “
< He wasn’t handsome, that bold soldier
boy, who went offin the 3d regiment. —
Indeed, he was a very ordinary looking
person. What a large nose he had—how
awkward in his general appearance and
manners. She was frequently ashamed of
him. He was weak, too, and timid, and
bashful, and nobody ever thought he
would come to much. But' he had one
good quality that made him dearer to her
than all the world besides. He loved as
a lover should love faithfully, sincerely,
eternally. “My love may not be worth
much,” he used to say to her, “ but its all
I have in the world, and I give it to you
whether you value it or not.”
This he would say to her as he was bid
ding her good-night, with a sigh. Well,
he is gone now, and she hugs and kisses

dying man.
His knapsack was brought to him, and
as he took it, his eye danced with pleasure
and his face was covered all over with a
smile, as he brought out from it his hid

“There said he, “ that is a Bible from

you to put these under my pillow.”
She did as she was requested, and the
poor young man laid down on them to die
requesting that they should be sent to his

joyful was he in dying. It was only go

to eternal glory. So the young soldier,
In the Long Run. —There is no little
of repining on the part of many worthy
people, which must be attributed chiefly
to a habit of forgetting some well known
truths. It would be good for all to re
member that in the long run, the things
that now fret and annoy, will all be seen to
be parts of a plan of infinite benevolence.
The evils we lament will be turned into
agencies for good, and the sorrows we ex
perience will eventuate in future joys.—
That life is the sweetest which is passed
in extracting honey even from the bitter
est adversities; and he is the wisest man
who can most heartily confide in that rec
titude of Providence, and in the final su
premacy of truth and right. In the long
run, that Christian will come out well who
works cheerfully, hopefully, heartily, with
out wasting his energies upoo yain re
grets and passionate murmurings. The
bird sings in the storm; why may not the
child of God rejoice, too, even though the
passing olouds lower ?
Extraordinary Scene* at an Kxecu
■ tion.
A man named James White Was execu
ted at Salem, Illinois, on The |6th inst.,
for the murder of Andrew J. Applegate.
The “ Advocate ,” giving an account of
the preliminary ■, for the ex
ecution, the assembling of a large throng
of spectators, etc., says: Soon after this
time, the public were astounded by the re
port that the convict White had possessed
himself with a chain, and, armed with it,
threatened instant death io any man who
should dare to enter his prison. The rc-
Eort was found to be true. There had
een a chain strongly fixed, in the floor of
his prison, to which it had become neces
sary on some occasions to secure the pris
oners; this chain White had wrenched
from its fastenings. It was a common
sized ox chain, about three feet in length,
and had upon one end an iron ring nearly
nine inches in circumference, and by run
ning the links through the ring, he had
made a heavy knot of iron. White de
clared with terrible oaths that no living
man should enter. .Sheriff Black made
an attempt to enter, assisted by four reso
lute and fearless men.. Driven to desper
ation, the hardened criminal struck a tre
mendous blow, which happily was but a
slight injury ujdod the left hand of the
It was how proposed to eject ammonia
into the face of the convict, and thus, by
his temporary suffocation, enable the offi
cers to take possession of the cell. This
was tried but failed. The miserable mur
derer recoiled; for an instant under the ef
fect of the liquid, but speedily recovering
himself be stood again at the door*armed
with his weapon. It was now resolved to
drench the cell with chloroform. The
sheriff was advised to disable him by a
pistol ball, butanswered that he would not
proceed to such harsh measures until all
less cruel means had failed. One or two
bottles of chloroform were procured, and
the atmosphere of the cell was thoroughly
impregnated with its fumes; blankets were
suspended outside the grated windows of
the cell, and every step taken to make
this effort successful. At first the furious
wretch laughed at this attempt. It was
clear that his wicked course of life had
made him familiar j with the use and the
effects of cbiorofonp. Indeed, he said so,
and told the officers that the article they
were using was Weak and poor. He evi
dently was acquainted with chemicals.—
In order to resist its effects, he wound bis
bed-quilt around his face, went occasional
ly to the window for air, and removed a
portion of the blanket by reaching out and
drawing it through the grating, so as to
make an opening for the admission of the
wind. 1
More than an hour had been consumed
in these fruitless efforts to obtain posses
sion of the prisoner and his weapon, and
it began to be apparent that harsher means
were necessary. White was heard to say
—“ They have tried hartshorn and chloro
form, upon me, but one has neutralized the.
action of the other; they are now going to
try something else.” He saw that he
must ultimately submit, and though at first
prepared to seU his life as dearly as possi
ble, his courage and strength now began
to fail. He therefore proposed that if the
sheriff would give him a dinner and a
drink of whisky, and let-faim live till one
o’clock, he would yeild his weapon and
surrender himself. This proposition was
accepted, and White gave up his knotted
chain through tire grating of the door.—
A dinner was prepared for him, and a
glass of water, with a slight infusion of
whisky handed him to drink. It was the
last office of apparent merey, and the sher
iff willingly performed it.
At one o’clock the sheriff entered the
cell. White came forward and surren
dered himself. His arnjs were .pinioned
behind him, and he walked resolutely
down the stairs of the jail, through the
hall; and into the place prepared for his
death. Here brief religious services were :
held. The services concluded, White ac
companied by the sheriff and his assistants
ascended the steps of the gallows without
apparent trepidation- He never faltered
a moment, but examined with a critical
eye, all the appliances prepared for. the
execution. When Once upon the scaffold
and his ankles being bound togqther, the
usual white cap was produced, and he waa
informed that it was necessary to put it
upon his bead. To this White objected,
insisting that no change should be made
in his apparel. Ho wore the little felt
cap with which he had covered his head
from his first imprisonment. When the
sheriff removed' the felt cap, and' was
about substituting the usual white one, but
the prisoner again objected, and with fear
ful imprecations, declared that it .should
not be put on. Sheriff Black, ii» a decir
ded tone, endeavored to persuade the pris
oner, but in vain. For nearly an hour
the officers were ngaged in a struggle tp
enforce compliance. Here, indeed, jw&
the demoniac character of the prisonerdis
played. ; He made every effort to prevent
the ofitoers ftosa putting m the. white m
oring, Pinioned and bound as he was bo
fought with desperation.' Be 'snapped ami
bit at their fingers, be leaped intothe air,
he cfrqohed toward the ground, aqd for
some date it seeded doubtful whether he
could be compelled to submit.
After u severe and protracted struggle'
the cap was thrown upon his bead andse
curely adjusted about bis &oe, and the'
strings drawn around bis neck. Nothing
now remained but to put the rope around
bis neck, abd adjust the fatal neeeAm
With some difficulty this was at (ngd
accomplished, the united efforts of four
men being required for this purpose. As
the sheriff drew the fatal nocee closer to
its place and put the knot beneath the ear
of the unhappy man, he exclaimed with
fearful imprecations, “What in h—ll are
yon choking me for? —you are choking
me, for I can 'hardly speak." These
were the last words of the wretched man.
The sheriff gave the signal that all tu
read; to his deputy, Mr. Schultz; in a mo
ment the trigger was drawn, the drop fell
and that unhappy man, so lately
gling with such desperate ftuy, so lately
busy with his terrible efforts to defeat the
vengeance of the law, fell like lead
through the draw and, hung, slightly Os
cillating, a. strugglihg, violent human be
ing no longer. '
Cheap Food —A New Dish! —A wri
ter in one of the eastern papers says that
probably not one farmer in fifty knows
what excellent, hearty, wholesome food he
can have directly from the wheat-field,
stack, or barn. Ho says: “ The writer’s
family breakfasted this morning, July the
29th, mainly upon boiled wheat. Boiled
wheat and wheat gravy. Boiled wheat,
and milk. Boiled wheat and maple sugar.
Not wheat flour, nor wheaten groats, nor
cracked wheat, hut whole grains of wheat
shelled from the best heads—the larger
the better—and soaked in cold water two
or three hours and then boiled in the same
water one or two hours, or until it is quite
soft and the water all absorbed. It should
be cooked while other culinary! operations
are going on, as it needs to boil\ or simmer
over a slow fire a good while, and caro
must be taken at the last that it does not
bum. How easy for our soldiers to have
a change in the eternal pilot bread and
salt meat rations ! How convenient would.
this little item of knowledge in domestic
cooking be to the wife of man; a farmer,
who would gladly got up an eztra.dishfor
the weary halftest-hands I , Try it. How
many families are this day living on short
allowance, with grain in the stack dr barn
near the house, because they cannot get it
ground—the mill being dried up, or bro
ken down, or occupied ■ by the army, or
suffering a collapse, so that no grinding

Power op a Horse’s Scest.—There
is one perception that a horse possessor,
that bat little attention has bean .paid to,
and that is the £ power of scentl With;’
some horses it is os aente as with the dog;
and for the benefit of those who have to '
ride at night—such as physicians—Ac -
knowledge is invaluable. I have never
known it tq fail, and I have rode hundreds
of miles on dark nights; and in qonsid'
eration of this power of scent, this is m; \
simple advice; Never check your horse at
night, but give him a free head, and you
may rest assured that he will never get off
the road, and will carry you expeditiously
and safely. In regard to the power pf
scent in the horse,'l once knew one of ft
pair that was stolen,.and was recovered
mainly by the track being traced ont by
his mate, and that after be had been ab
sent six or eight hours.
This great country will continue
united. Trifling politicians in the Sfputhj or
in the North, or in the West, may con
tinue to talk otherwise, bnt it will be of
no avail. They are like the mosquitoes
around the ox; they annoy, but they can
not wound,-and they never kill” These
were the words of Jeff Davis, in an ad
dress, delivered on the 4th of July, 184 S,
and Gen. Scott proposes to show him that
he was correct.
