And tho bright Hush ofjny iniifitleit lilghon her
And tho fututo lookeil blooming nnd unv.
And with womnn's devotion sho laid her fond
At Iho slirlno of ldolnlrons love,
And sho anchored her hopes lo this perishing
111' the chains which her tenderness wove.
nut I snwwhcnthoscticart-strlngs were bleeding
And the chain had been suvcred In two.
Sho had changed her white robes for til" snblo of
And her bloom for the lstleuessof wool

And wiping Iho tears from her eves.
Ho strengthened tho chatn llo had I rokeu in
And fastened It firm to Iho skies.
There nvl whispered a voice, 'twas llieoloe of
"I lore thee Iloio thee pars under the nil."
I sawn. voting mother lu tenderness betid
O'er tho much of her slumbering boy,
And she kissed the sott lips ns they murmured
Wlilio thodreamor lay smiling In Joy,
Osweetns Iho rose hud encircled with dew
When lis fragrance is flung on the air.
So fresh nnd so might to that mother lio Memcd
As ho loy in his innocence there.
Hut I saw when sho gared on the nme lovely
Tale ns marble, and silent and cold!
Hut paler nnd colder her beautiful boy,
And tho tale of her sorrow wns told ;

And taken her treasure away.
Tonlluroher to heaven Ho plnccd Hon high,
And tho mourner will sweetlvobev.
There hnd w lilspcrcd n voice, 'tuns tho voice of

I saw a fnthcr and mother who leamsl
On tho arms of n dear, gifted son,
And tho star in tho future grew bright to their

And tho fast coming evening of life promised fair.
And Its pathway grew smooth to (Mir fe. t.
And the starlight of love gllmmiied bright at liie
And the whlsiicrs of fancy grew sweet.
And I saw them ngalnbemllng low o'er the grave,
Where their lienrts dearest hones hndbeenlnld.
And tlicstnrlind gone down In tho darkness of

Tun iiriidcnco and patriotism with
which Oencrnl Hrmcock Is rulmluljitor-
lug tho niuilrn of his ilnpnrtment attest
tlio wistlom of rrcsiili'iit Johnson in
displacing his predecessor. General
Grant's intemperate remonstrauco was
ship than to tho soundness of his Jtitlg
ment. Wlilln Sheridan was in com
mand the department was never quiet.
That meddlesome ofllcer lesmnbled tho
unfortunate people who never have good
neighbors. Ho found himself under a
constant necessity of doing strong 'tcts :
and tho protest-, against hN removal as
sumed that tho department wns mi full
of turbulent, mutinous spirits that only
his vigorous hand could hold litem ill
subjection, lint when ho left, tho re
bellious spirits seemed to depart with
him, ip, the peace ol'n lielghboi-hootl Is
rotored when the unforitinato family
that always had bad neighbors move,
away. General Sheridan's removal,
which It was averted, before it took
place, would make him the next Presi
dent, is much more likely lo confer that
honor upon his sm-ccssor. If General
Hancock continues to evince the con
summate civil prudence lie has thus far
exhibited. It bids fair to placo him
among the.small number from whoina
Democratic candidate will be selected,
while Sheridan's .-imposed claims have
gone into a total eclipse.
i crr our pari, wo nopo mat a stales
man'of JtVgo civil experience may bo
run by both partle.-. Wen in not likely
to need military abilitie.-jor If weshotied
tho Presidential mansion is not a lit
place, for tho headquarters of a lighting
army. Great lnea-ures of civil policy
and administrative reform shouliUland
ii the fore, round under tho next Presi
dent. There Is no lltness in choosing a
mere military man to discharge duties
requiring great civil experience. Hut If
tho Itcpubll catisattempt to sway the
canvass by tho eclat of u military namo
it may bo expedient to neutialisto tho
elfort by putting a popular military
namo Into tho other scale. If this ne
cessity should bo forced upon ns, an
accidental advanlago may result from
tho Republican reconstruction scliemo
by affording a Held to test tho civil ca
pacity of ono of our most admired ami
Tho standing electioneering calumny
of tho lU'iiubllcans, that every man
who disapproves of their negro policy
is"a rebel nt heart, recoils against itsau
titers when levelled at so bright a repu
tation as General Hancock's. Por loyal
ty, gallantry, zeal, activity, nntl tho
-olid valuo of his services, thero was no
olllcer in thu Union army who, with
equal opportunities, left so shining a
recoul. If ho had even had n separate
command, ho might liavo acted a nioro
prominent, but he could not easily have
acted a more brilliant part. Separate
commands wero lavished on otllcers of
a different school of politics. Tho lto
publlcau Hanks had a sejmrato com
mand both In the Valley and in Lou
isiana, and ho acquired everything but
honor in both. The renegade Democrat,
Butler, had separate commands, and
made himself a butt of derision, Pope
had a separate command, and his In
competency was demonstrated by tho
second Bull Bun. Btimsldo had a scpa
rato command, anil tho result was his
uselefs daughter of our troops at Fred
ericksburg. Hooker had a separateconi
mand, nnd tho result was his disgrace
ful tlefeat at Chaucelloisvllle. The Con
servative Jlrndo was promoted to a
separate command by nceldent and a
sudden necessity, Ho won tho great
victory of Gettysburg nnd was again
subordinated, Democratic officers who
wero not servllo enough to mnounco or
dissemble their principles, had no fair
chance In tho army. Tho crushing of
Ocncrnl 31'clellan by political mallco
wain warning which disclosed to mu
nitions army onicors n fatal rock In tho
channel of promotion.
Although General Hanccck never had
n separate command while tho war last
ed, thero wero but few directors of ar
mies who blazed Into Mich distinction
as this brilliant subordinate. Tho Army
of tho Potomac, In which ho served, al
ways ranked ns the first of our armies,
ami Hancock ns one of lis brightest or
naments. Ills purity of character, his
patriot e ardor, his gallantry, alacrity,
vigor, abilities, modesty, and good for
tune, aciiitlred for him a reputation
which wnsncvcrMillled by ono breath of
suspicion oronewordofccnsuri'. When
ever It Is said tliat Conservative utilities
aro Inconsistent with vigorous, devoted
loyally, It is n Milllclent icply to point
loiienerai Hancock, the esteemed and
gallant representative of hundreds of
Democratic officers, and hundreds of
thoti-ands of Democratic xoldleiv. The
surviving Mildlors of the Army of the
I'otomacfeel for him a warmth of nil-
miring regard which the cltler cliaran
ter of Iener.il Orant never hlitdletl:
and tho people ?haro thu feeling.
(Jcncral Hancock has thus far proved
himself injudicious In peace as he was
bravo anil brilliant In war. ruder his
administration, there have been no
New Orleans riots; no lii-ubordliiallon
in civil officers to glvo him trouble : no
disaffection to his person, though ho
fills a most unwelcome ofllce. He re
sorts to no strong men-ures because tho
considerate equity of his udmlnMmtlou
dlsorms opposition. Tho turbulent and
cbelllotis population which It was said
that no hnad less formidable than Shel l
dan'.s could control, and which he hard
ly succeeded In controlling by Ids con
tain acts of rigor and sniiiinary dis
missals, is m) stiontaneou-ly orderl valid
quiet under Ilnncock.that, toall appear
ance, ho could govern as eifectually
without an army as with. This con
trast, fcoercditablo to Hancock, Illustra
tes, the superiority of tho Democratic
method of dealing with tho .South. If
General Hancock, when set to execute
ar. odious law, can govern wl th so little
friction how easily might loyalty bo
maintained in tho South If tho policy of
tho government as well as Its olllcor.s
wero conciliatory !
To illustrate the temper of General
Hancock's adiijlniatration, nnd hi-,
ateadfast fealty to law, wc copy the fol
lowing statement from the New Or
leans V'cdimir .
On Saturday nlfjltt a father and son,
known respectively in this community
by the names of Simon M. Trunk
allecho and Kihuund V. alleclie.
' who fur povvrnl months past havti lioon
proprietors of tho sa-h and planing
nun-', called tlio .uariposa Alllls, on
Kt. Joseph street, were arrested by the
police under a warrant I tied by the Gov
ernor of the State of NewAork, they
being Indicted in tbuClty of New-Yorli,
It is alleged, with obtaining goods from
merchants there, about eighteen mouths
ago, to the amount of 11111,111111, by fale
Saturday night .Itidgo Cotton, coun
sel for the accused, sued out, before
iiudgc Theard, a writ of iiiliciniiirjiii.',
returnable this morning at 111 o'clock.
It itphcar-, however, that General Han
cock learned late la-t evening of the
simple fact of the Is-uanco of the writ
by a court ol competent Juri-dlctlon,
and of tho probability, under peculiar
attendant clrctimstaiuvs, that tin' writ
was not to be re-peeted. lie at nine
went in person to the otllce of Chief of
Police, about (i..'!u o'clock, and told
Major Willlam-oii that be bud learned
that a writ of ikiCiik ra,y)tM bad been
it sited, and that owing to -ome illegali

obeyed. "I will hold yi u rc-poii'llilc

Tho proceedings In this ca-e of requi
sition may beall regularand thogrotmds
of the arrest sufllcienl. These aro points
on which General Hancock need have
no opinion. But it is important that
citizens ofhls dLlrlct should feel that
they cannot be dragged from their
homes on criminal clmrges and taken to
a distant State to be tried, without good
reasons. All that tho habeas corpus
will accomplish Is to securo an exami
nation of tlio grounds of arrest beforoan

J louse 0 Jleprescntallvcs :
An official copy of tho order Issued
by .Major-Gen. Wlnfiold S. Hnncock,
Commander f tho Fifth Military Dis
trict, datctl Headquarters in Ncw-Or-leans,
011 the fflith day of November,
has reached mo through tho regular
channels of Iho War Department, and
I herewith communicate it to Congress
for such action as may seem to be prop
er in view of all tho circumstances. It
will be perceived that Gen. Hancock
announces thai he will make tho law
the rule of his conduct j that ho will
uphold the courts anil other civil au-
thmltics In tbo performance of their
proper duties, and that ho will nso his
military power only to preserve tho
peace and enforce the law. Ho declares
very Implicitly that the sacred right of
tho Ilia! by Jury nnd the privllego of
the writ or hatmu cnijiit Miali not bo
crushed out nor trodden under foot. He
goes further, and in one comprehensive
sentence averts that the piliicliiles of
American liberty aro still the Inheri
tance or this people, and ever should
be. When a great soldier, with unre
stricted power in his hands to oppress
his fellow-inon, voluntarily foregoes tho
chanco of gratifying his selllsh ambi
tion, and devotes liim-clf to the duty
oriitilldlng up the liberties niidstrengtli.
oning tbo laws of his country, ho pre
sents an example of tho highest public
virtue that human naturo is capable of
practicing. Tlio stronge-t claim of
Washington to bo "first in war, ilrst In
peace, and Ilrst in the hearts of his
countrymen," is founded on tho great
fact that In all his Illustrious career ho
scrupulously abstained from violating
tho leg,.l and constitutional rights of
Ids fellow-cltlzcns. When ho surren
dered ids commi-sion tn Congresi, the
Pruiident of that body spoko his high
est pral-o in saying that lio had"Hlwavi
regarded the rights of tho civil authori
ties through all dangers and disasters."
Wherever power abovo the law courted
his acceptance, ho calmly put tempta
tion aside. By such magnanimous acts
or forbearance ho won tho tinivcn-al
admiration of mankind, and left a
iiams which has no rival In tho history
of tho world. I am far from saving
that Gen. Hancock is the only ofllcer of
tho American army who is influenced
by the example of Washington. Doubt-ies-
thousands of them aro faithfully
devoted to tho principles for which the
men of tlio ltovolution laid down their
lives. But the distinguished honor bo
longs to him of being tlio lirst olllcer In
high command south or tho Potomac
since the closo of tho civil war who has I u'9 delmbtlle, Mrs. Grundy, and squat
given utterance to thv--e . noblo scntl- tc(' 'nwn on U10 floor ly tho sldo ofthe
mcntsin the form or a military order.
I respectfully siiggo.-t to Congress that
-ome public recognition ol" Gen. Han
cock's patriotic conduct is due, if not
to him, to tho Irlends of taw and Jus
tice throughout tho country. Of such
an act as his at such a time it is but fit
ting that tlio dignity should bo vindica
ted, and Hie virtue proclaimed, so that
its value as an i-xaniplo may not bo
lost to the nation.
A GOOD CUSTOMER.
A rr.w days since, a dignified person
with the bearing nnd general appear
ance of a country merchant, stepped In
to a u hole-ale store In the city of Nor
wich Conn., and In a bland tone and
lusiniiatliifr manner.inqulrcd of the pro
prietor, If ho sold gin by the barrel, at
what price nml If II was a good article.
He would like to s"o a sample.
Proprietor drew 11 large-lzed tumbler

"Ah !" said be, as ho smacked Ids
lips with Just it sti-plclon of delight,
"that's good gin. What can you let 1110
have it barrel of that for'.'"
Proprietor named the price.
"Itemarkablygood gin," said he, tak

went on with n long story about that

Somnambulists aro guilty of a great
many curious freaks, whllo a great ma
lynro attended with danger, and still
others afford tho ground for lots of fun.,
A lady and a gentluiiaii In Qtilncy,
Illinois, had been for a long tlmo be
trothed, nnd weio only waiting for a
favorable opp.rttitilty to como around,
when the twain would bo mado 0110
flesh, or tTiereabouts. Tho lady Is n som
nambulist of tho "highest order," very
beautiful, very romantic, nnd much ad
dicted to tho habit of novel reading.
About a month ngo tho lady nnd her
lover had spent the evening together.
nnd had sepnratcd nt tin early hour, tho
gentleman repairing to his room somo
two blocks off, nntl wns asleep, dream-
lug of tho fair creatRro who would soon
bo his. She, In her still chamber, by
her midnight lamp, pored over tho pre
cious pages of tbo latest new novel, In
vesting, doubtless, the hero lover with
tlio rorm and features of tho man who
was all In nil to her, till nt length
"The bad all killed and tho good all nlense.l.
Her thirsty curiosity appeased !
Sliojhnt the dear, goodliook that made her ween
l'ut, out tho light, nnd turns away to slep."
But ero tho "balmy messenger" lias
como to her pillow, Imagination ngaln
wanders on tho scenes so lately presen
ted ; tlio various actors start from their
hldlngsanew, whllo her Ideal hcrolno
becomes identified with herself, and
sho arises. A drawer clo'obv contains
thoso hidden and delicato mysteries so
carefully prepared for use during tlio
honeymoon, nnd reroblng licrsclf, she
starts out, and carelully treading tho
distance that intervened between her
own homo and that or her lover she
reaches the door, and hero conies tho
mystery. How gained sho admittance?
But certain ltisshodid. She enters tho
chamber or her affianced, gently sho lies
Uown besldo him, nnd presently not a
sound is hoard save tho steady nnd even
breathing that betokens sound and
Daylight camont Inst, and as all oth
er things must have nn cud, so did this
sweet sleep of innocence and beauty.
Tho gentleman jumps from tlio bed and
sares In affright, thinking ho Is op
pressed by some horrible nightmare.
Ho sees tho pillow where two heads
have lain during the night, anil beholds
the terrified object of his love robed in
an elegant chamber dc null. Iter heart
palpitating with a thousand throbs of

Is a genius, as tlio gorgeous red nnd yel
low stripes on Pulford's wagons show,
nrd while counterfeiting nature ono
day, for hit own amuement, in tlio
rear oC tho shop, his mind happened to
run cm the subject of rotten eggs, and
forthwith ono of thoo interesting Mils
Jects appeared on the board beneath his
magical brush. It was represented as
"broken, and was so natural that an ob
server might fancy that It caused a ills
agreeable odor. The picture lemalned
tUero for somo time, all who bail occas
ion to go that way, not caring to dis
turb a thing so forbidding to tho deli
cato sen-es of tho nits I protuberance.
Ono day Squire M saw It ami applied
his lingers to ltis nose. Billy -aw him
nnd explained to him that It was but
paint. At first he would hardly believe
lint finally convinced ho ottered Billy
ten dollars to paint a similar one on Ids
doorstep. The Squire was something
of 11 wag, and wished to see Iho effect;
produced 011 the ladies and gentlemen
who hail been invited to a party at his
hotiso that evening.
Billy received ten dollars, ami prom-
Isetl to have the painting ready in time.

succession pa-sed over Bllly'n painting
they elevated their feet and skirts anil
applying their perfumed handkerchiefs
to their noses, wondered It' tho Squire

egg wns tho subject of much leinnrk.

arose, nnd uttering a preliminary
" I suppose you all saw that on my

Bverybotly assented, somo of tho fe

Grange (la.) Heporter.
n affectionate but playful wife in
Springfield, Mass., sent a note to her
husband recently, written in a di-guls-
tl band, slgwsl with a fictitious nam-,
stilting that she liad often seen and ad
mired him, nnd if ho would inform her
of a place of meeting, she would go-to
the spot, and they would become better
acquainted. Husband answered tho
note at once, appointing tlmo nndjplacit
of meeting. Both parties met at tho
appointed time nud place, tho lady
heavily veiled anil proceeded to the
rooms, where thu veil was removed and
a grand tableau not expected ensiled.
Assurance on tho part of the husband
that It was nothing but a Joke, and that
lie knew nil tho timo it was her, recon
ciled tho wife, wlio Is having a stylish
oonnet, new velvet cloak and elegant
Di:si:nTi:its. A prayer-meeting Is
the true thermometer of tho church. A
cold prayer-meeting Invariably makes a
cold church; It is at once tho cause nnd
tlio effect of a sad spiritual declension.
If the placo of prayer Is well nigh de
serted; Ifthofow who aro present In
person seem to bo absent in spirit; If
the formal prayers that tiro rehearsed
are without point, purpose, or unction
then tho pastor of such a flock has
abuniladt eauso for heaviness and toars.
His work drags, his truth-seed decays
as it isAown: his spirit faints within
him. I would ns soon bo tho pastor of
Greenwood Cemetery ns of a congrega
tion who insulted mo systematically by
asking mo to spend my life in preaching
the gospel to immortal souls for wltoni
they rcfu-'o to pray. Tlio member ofu
Christian church who has made his
public vow to servo Ids Master, add yet
icllfulljj absents himself from tho place
of prayer, Is guilty of a breach of hl
covenant. Ho is as ranlc a deserter from
duty as the soldier would bo who re
fused to stand in his place when his reg
iment was drawn up in lino of battlo on
tho Held. Individual cowardice, when
it becomes general, kills an army; ki .
individual co'dncts in piety freezes out ,
a prayer-meeting and kills a church.

If 11 man is without enemies I would

Tho man who can please everybody,
hasn't got sense enough to please any

in your place, follow him more than it
mile to tell him I was well.
A convenient way of testing tho af
