Around thy llcldH, air aettyburn I
As if with mattock, hoe and itpndo,

To mnko n nttltiR burial bed
ror heroe slain, tho glorious dead I
HowclmnRcd thy tranquil harvefd-acens,
w neio liobencath Ills Iron heel

Jtatn held wild revelry of steel.
Of blow! and carnage o'er Its sod
A Nutlon'H holocaust to God 1
low woUo the stlllncsH of ihlno air.
Ah rumbling drum and tdirllly life,
And banners waving free and fair.
Announced tho coming of that strife.
Which, for nil tlmc.Pbull make thy linmo
Like Marathon s I'lateiVa famol
And when tho Iron storm was o'er.
lho vanquished from tho field had fled.
And thousands lay In weltering gore
Til) wounded, dying, and tho dead
Twas then thy painful task to see
How dar-bought was tho victory I
Th' unnumbered dead, that round tlico lay
I.lke harvest sheaveH by reapers bound:
The fsilrdialred boy, and veteran grey,
noticed in that sleep that hears no sound.
Nor echoes of the fiery plain,
isor martial trump, shall rouse ngaln,
The moan, the plaint of dying men,
Which they in Nature's feebleness
Could Ill-repress, nor yetas when

Their parting words their last farewell

They who from out Ihu sulphurous smoke,
The battle's rage nnd fiery strife,
As blasted by tho lightning's stroke,
Htood forth ot beauty, strength bereft,
isaught but their country's honors lelt.
And nil tho sad havoc of tho field:
The wild debris; alt trodden down,
Had It been Spared, tlieslcklu's yield;
The soldier's vestments widely stiowu.
And sword, and musket, bayonet,
Htalucd with his blood and gory wet.
The noble, gallant steed o'erthrown;
Prpno to tho earth which lato his heel
Had spurned whence from hi nostrils blown
Tho brenth of war by broken wheel
And caliion. cannon, ishot and shell,
Where they In shattered ruin fell,
lhit etagaln the summer's bloom
Hhall deck thy graves all hodlcss now;
With ranker growth the hero's tomb
Where oft had broko tho stubborn plough,
As If swtet Natuie's .tin illy hand

And iolut in grandeur toward the .kits.

LIFE IN THE BACK-WOODS.
Old Jimmy Waddle', l'lrst Cotirtslilii.
"Tai.kin' o'spreen, boys, puts mo in

This was snid by nn old man, whom
we will introduce as Mr. James Wad

Everybody, (except tho reader) knows
him and Ills penchant foryurn-splniiing.
It was tho evening of a militia training
day; there wero a goodly iiiiniher,nfter
tho company was dUmisscd from duty,
who wero lounging nrotind, nnd all
gathered around the aforesaid old Jim,
to hear his yarn, to which ho had al
ready begun tho prelude, ami only
waited for somebody to urgo him to go
on. This there were enough to do. Ho
then inquired what they would linve
'ono of his huntin' or courtin' sprees?"
Tho boys unanimously demanded tho
latter. Then, after requesting that none
of themshoiild laugh till ho got through,
with a flow preparatory heim, and an
uiMimption of a comically grave fnco,
ho commenced: I wish I could report

look tho gals in tho face and then ga.o

queernbout tho gizzard, nnd wlsh'd an

couldn't tell who I loved most. There
wits l'eggy Masonhammor, n mighty

always toted her shoes and stockln's Ii

wife; "I found him lying upon tho

through Kentucky, having bank bills
to tho amount of nhout$25,000. When ho

Tho darkness of tho night camo over
him and how tu escape from tho threat
eulog danger ho knew not. Iiiblsalurni
ho suddenly espied lu tho distance,
n dim light, and urging his hor.-o on
ward, ho nt length camo to a wretched
cabin, lie knocked, und the door was
opeucd by a woman, who said that her
hushanU was out hunting, but would
boon return. Tho gentleman put. up his
horse und entered tho cabin, but with
feelings that can bo better imagined

largo sum of money, and perhaps In tho
houso of ono of tho robbers whoso namo
was a terror to tho country.
In a short timo the man ol the houso
returned. Ho had on a deer skin shirt,
a boar skin cap, much fatigued, nnd in
no tulkntlvo mood. Ho felt for pistols
