In the grave. Oh, earth, may her heart be
To always dwell in such saddened thought.

The bright golden hours of days gone by,
Brings visions of love to his fading eye.

Yet he, of all, still wanders a.one,
While those he loved, forever has flown.

That life had bid, forever to part,

Gift from Washington to Lafayette
Found in a Pawnbroker's Shop.
We extract from a Nashville journal
the following interesting account of tho,
finding of a watch presented to Gen. La
fayette by Gen. Washington, and stolen
from him during his visit to this coun
try forty-four years ago:
While the Revolutionary war was go
int on, there lived in Philadelphia a
Switzer named Weitzel, a watchmaher by
trade. aman of great ingenuity and in
venting genius. Having a great admi
ration for Gen. Washington, he con
structed a watch with peculiar care,
which, halting placed In a valuable gold
case. he presented to Gen. Washington.
with instructions to present it to any man
he might. find who deserved more of the
American people than himself. The
General carried the watch until efforts
of Gen. Lafayette bad impressed him
with the *slue and distinguished char•
acter of the man. and, believing that. be
had found the man designated by Weit
tel in his instructions, he compelled La
fayette to accept it. Lafayette carried
the watch until his return to this -coun
try, in 1828, when, as a guest of a grate
ful free people ; he made a tour through
the conntry, receiving everywhere the
plaudits and welcome of a people of
*hose history he had Written the bright
page. While pursuing his triumphal
journey. he arrived at Nashville, and
while at. that city, receiving the con
grarulations of the citizens of Tennes

pers throughout the whole country ad
veres'ed it; large rewards were offered ;
and the detective officera in all the
were on the alert to recover the watch.
But, in epit.e of all that was done at the
time, the watch was not found, and in
time the Vatth Was forgotten.
Not many days since. in a Western
city. a watch eXposed for sale in the
windolf of a pawnbroker, attracted much
attention from people passing, by its pe
culiar make and value. One day an old
gentleman passing the Windolv, tale the
watch, and on looking at it closely, be
came satisfied that he knew something
about. it, stepped into the shep, and re
quested the pawnbroker ro let hina
amine it. This was reaoily granted.—
Atter a moment the old gentleman ex
claimed, "this was Gen. talayett's ivatch•,

and proceeded, at once, to 'exculpate
himself by assuring the gehtleesah that
he did not have the slightest Suspicion
that it was stolen property; he had loan

who was in great distress, and who 're
presented that it was a faViiily relic,
which had been given her by her moth

girl should be produced; he wanted t'o

excited, and remarked that he was 'Die

day the watch was stolen, and his honor,
as well as that. of every man then living
in the nation, was involved: The pawn
broker said nothing was easier, as a girl,
who danced at some place of entertain
ment, occupied a room in the next hortsn.
and if the gentleman would walk back
and tette a seat, he would send for the
girl. The old -gentleman took the prof
fered Pao. and lit a feir minutes the girl
came in. She looked week and feeble,
though young, and when questioned
about the watch, did not evince the least
want of toiliposure, but without hesita
tion, proceeded to give, in answer to
questions, the following narrative: She
was hem iniong the Mountains of East
Tennessee. and when she was about
eight years old, her pareLts removed to
Memphis, where they remained three
years; then they went to St. Louis;where
they lived Until both parents died—her
father died first, and about one year of
ter her Mother died. The watch had
been in the possession of her father all
her life; she could recollect seeing it in
her youth distinctly; - that her father,
when importuned to sell it by visitors,
invariably refused, saying that it had
been in his family many years, he hav
ing received it on the death of his fath
er, with Fositive instructions not to sell
or dispose of it. but. keep it in the fami
ly; her mother had charged her not to
sell it, but keep it. She was t hen saving
money to redeem the watch; would not
have pawned it, but a severe fit of sick
ness had reduced her to such straits that
she was obliged to resort to the watch to
raise money for absolute necessaries to
sustain life. The old gentleman heard
the girl's story with astonishment, and,
being satisfied. from her manner that she
told the truth. be felt convinced that the
theft of the watch vros still a mystery

after so many years, to learn who com

Liquor Laws in Politics.
Last Tuesday's elections show that the
prohibitionists people made good their
threat to have a hand in 'State politics
whenever they could; and their work is
visible from Massachusetts to Minnesota.
So far, however, as can now he seen,
their main achievement has been to dam.
age their own cause. In the two States
just mentioned, they made a very poor
show; and in the former, where they once
controlled the Legislature by an over
whelming vote, they have lost, it by a
majority equally overwhelming.
The policy of the prohibitionists has
been at once grasping, ineonsiderate,and
shortsighted. They have clamored every
where to have the single issue—and that
a moral one—which they present,raised
above the great fundamental political
principles on which the two great parties
of the country are organized. They have
not even been content to take from these
parties a general declaration of sympa
thy with any movement for true temper
ance, allowing every member of the par
ty to eternise his own discretion as to
the proper means for the progress of
temperance. They have sought, rather,
to commit political conventions to the
support of their extremest measures; to
allow no latitude of judgment; to read
out of the ranks any person. no matter

this subject did not square With their

under all sorts of threats of "bolting"
and opposing, the prohibitionists hare

WE often think that the shock which ,
jars the mental, renders yet softer the•
moral nature. A death that is connect
ed with love, unites as by a thousand re
membrances to all who have mourned;
it builds a bridge between the young and.
the old; it gives them, in common, the•
most touching of human sympathies; it
steals from nature its glory and its ex
