My Wifo and Child.
fThO foltnwIllD' lilies nfn Crnm I lia no, nf tla..
filonewnll Jackson, of Confederate tamo. They
brcallie tho truo spirit of poetry and tender
pathos. As n beautiful cxprelon of thought,
they will no doubt bo appreciated, by our read-
Tho tattoo heats tho lights are gono,
Tho camp around In slumber lies ;
Tho night with solemn paco moves oi,
Tho shadow thickens o'er tho sitlesj
But Bleep my weary eyes hath flown,
And sad uneasy thoughts arise.
I think of thee my dearest one,
Whoso love my early heart hath blest i
Of thco and lilm our baby son
Who slumbers on thy gentle bro.nt,
God of the tender, frail nml lone,
Oh guard tho lender sleeper's rest .
And hover gently, hover near
To her, whoso watchful eye Is wet
To mother, wife tho doablo dear,
In whoso young heart havo rreshly met
Two streams of love so deep and clear
And cheer her drooping spirits yet.
Now, while sho kneels before thy Throne,
Oh teach her, Ruler or tho skies,
"Tlinl, while by Thy behest alone,
Enrth's mightiest powers fall nnd l Ise,
No tear is w cpt to Thco unknown,
No hair is lost, no sparrow dicH.
That Thou cau'st stay tho rulhlesi hand
Of dark disease, and sootho Its pain
That only by Thy stein command
Tho bnttle's lost, tho soldier's slain j
That from the distant sea or land
Thou brlng'st tho wanderer homo again.
Aud when upon her pillow lone,
Her tear-wet cheek Is s.idiy prcst.
May happier visions beam upon
Tho brightening cunont of her breast!
No frowning look or angry tone
Disturb tho Sabbath of her rest,
Whatever fate tho-o forms may show,
Loved with a passion almost wild
By day, by night, In Joy or woo
By fears oppressed, or hopes beguiled,
From every danger, every foe,
Oil, God 1 protect ray wife nnd ehll 1 1
In caUlo halls, or cottago home J,
Wherever guileless childhood roams,
O, thcro Is nothing half so sweet
As busy tread of littlo feet.
Tho sighing breeze, the ocean's roar,
Tho purling rill, tho organ's power,
All stir the soul, but none so deep
As tiny tread of littlo feet.
When forth wo ru at early morn,
To meet tho world and bravo Us scorn,
Adowu tho garden walks so neat,
Wo sco the prints of littlo feet.
At eve, when homeward wo repair,
Willi aching limbs nnd brow of care,
The voices ring out clear nnd sweet
Then comes tho rush ot littlo lect.
Tho kulvoi nro losl, tho dishes stiny,
The tools aio spirited away;
Aud when wo go tho lost to seek,
Wo take tho trail of littlo feet.
But when tho angel Death has como
And called tho llowercts from our home,
Opptesslvo silence reigns complete;
Wo miss tho sound of little feet,
Then tools are safe, no dlshoj slray.
No doors go slnmming all tho day ;
But O, 'twould glvo us pleasure sweet
To henr again thoso noisy feet.
Soft night hath como; all aio asleep;
Yes, all but me I vigil keep.
I lush 1 hush 1 my heart, and cease to bc.it
Was that tho step of little feet ?
Yes, tearful mother, 'tis tho ticad
Of lilm you miss and mourn as dead ;
Aud often lu your bweetest sleep,
You'll dream of hcirlng littlo feet.
And when this pllgjlmago Is o'er,
And you approach that blissful shore,
Tho Hist lo run your soul to greet,
Will bo your darling's littlo feel.
I roamed lo-day tho sylvan scenes
Wo roamed together years ago.
And marked each spst that Intervenes,
Whero cowslips peep and daisies grow ;
But, ah 1 they smiled not as of old,
And e eiy nook was sadly ehauged ;
Tho wnrmth or nil tho Past is cold.
Since time has you nnd mo eslrangod,
I breathed ngiin in the sweet pcifuine
That rises from the ilch dark grouud,
Where mottled llowers of tiny bloom
Their geutlo souls exhale around;
But, ah 1 their sweets no more wero drawn
With eager preath and alt seemed changed;
The fragrance of tho Past Is gone ,
Since time has you and me cstraugui),
I sat beneath tho oak tree grand,
On Iho old "Lover's Seat" alone,
Ami seemed to feel aFmall,warm baud
Creep tenderly wllhlu my owuj
But, ah! It thrilled not as of yoie,
Slnco flesh for shadow wus exchanged ;
The feeling of tho Past Is o'er,
S liico Time has you and me estranged.
All elothed with peace, I tee ye,u now,
Sereuo and soft ns bummer skies;
Tho snmo deep smllo still lights thy brow
Ami kindly steals from Hps to eyes ;
But, ah I for mo Its light Is lied.
Its suuny Joy to radness chaugod ;
Tho Beauty of the Past Is dead
Since you and I are btill estranged.
Tho Scornful Nose,
'Tls very true. O maiden fair,
You'ro pleasant to tho sfcrht.
With flowing locks of golden hair
And eyes of flashing light,
Upon your cheeks health loves lo train.
The Illy and the rose,
But something makes your beauty vain,
It dwells upon your noso!
Not that the lovely noso could llnd
Upon a lovelier face,
'Mid all the flower of womankind,
A moio befitting place,
But there's a curl upon Its tip.
Half comic, half severe.
In cool collision with tho Hp
That savors of a sneer.
So beauty bright, if you would wed,
When lovers come to woo,
Bewaro the tosslugof tho he.ul,
Tho glauco that looks nskow,
Men ask for love and not for wit,
That scorchos whero It glows,
'Tls heart, not head, you ought to hit;
ruturl your scornful uetsu I
Tho Unknown Land.
0 laud unknown I Beyond our mortal sight,
Wrapt iimnd Willi gloomy shadows of tho night,
Our spirits dread, yet long to wing their night,
To thy mysterious shores.
O land unknown: A never ending train
In stern procession from these rentals of palu,
Moves slowly ou, but comes not back ngalu
From thy mysterious shores.
Olmid unknown I By the dividing stream
We stand aud gaze, and sometimes fondly dream
Tho clouds will part aud yield ouo transient
Of thy mysterious shores.
O land unknown I That day of days draws nigh
Which shall unlock this hidden mystery,
Aud bid our dreading, louglug uplilts Uy

A corrcsiiontlcnt of tho New York
Tribune gives tho following description
of tho very luxurious prison of Nnpo
Cabsel, Sept. ll.WIlhcImshoho, or
"tho German Versailles," as It has been
often termed, hits Just now nssumcd a
greater Intercut than It had slnco it was
tho Summer palaco of tho Elector of

ond. No American Is likely to forgot
or forgive thlsraonarch having acquired
most of his wealth by selling tho lives
of his subjects to the King of Great
Brltlan to light his battles In America
and elsewhere. From 17"C to 1781, 12,
000 Hesslniis wero sent to our country
fortliosuin of $22,000,000; but tills lit
tie claim, iinliko "the Alabama," was
Hottlod long ngo ; nnd as I walked about
the Frederick's Platz (tho largest squnro
in any German town) nnd admired tho
stntuo of tho Elector after whom It Is
mimed, 1 was wicked enough to enjoy
thinking how his own Government had
met precisely tho fatu ho had wished
You may walk or drlvo threo miles
from Casscl through a straight avenuo
of lines to tho palaco of Wllholmshoho
and besldo 11 stands tho theatre built
by Jeronio Bonaparto when King, and
in which ho himself used to act. Ju3t
behind is tho highest fountain in Eu
ropo (except that at Chatsworth) which
throws up its fairy spray 12 Indies in
diameter nnd ISO feet high. It springs
from lis imperceptible Jot in tho center
of a bed of mossy lawn, nnd so light
and itlrily docs It play amid tho spark
ling sutishitio that when tho hour is
over and you suddenly miss it, Ilko a
child hunting for n rainbow, you look
up at tho blue sky over head, and won
der lo what part of Itlthas flown awny.
Further up is an artificial waterfall, de
scending from a tall aqueductovcr beds
ofstono arranged In oxqttlslto taste, nnd
on Sundays and Wednesdays, when
tho waters play, great crowds flock to
The Aquatic Stalrcaso and tho Octn
gou Tcmplo or tho Winds, with the
ilatuo and other extravagances connec
ted with it, aro reported to havo cm
ployed 2,00(1 men for 11 years. When
their labors wero completed, tho cost
was found to bo so enormous that tho
accounts wero burned, to destroy all
records of It. -
The Cascado of tho Karlsburg is an
other, of tho many wonders of tho placo
a illght of steps, 1)00 feet long, over
which a stream of water is at times per
niUlcel to full. JTulf way up tho stairs
is tho Giant Euceladus, rudely repre
sented lying on his back, with a moun
tain of rocks heaped upon his breast.
Tho artist intended a jet of water 50
feet high should spout from his mouth,
but noiio plays there now. Tho stair
e.iso of this "Chateau d'E.iu" is sur
mounted by an octagon building 1,312
feet abovo tho Fulda, surmounted by a
pyramid serving as a pedestal to tho
colosal Hercules, !)1 feet high, of beaten
copper. Nino pcisons, It is said, can
stand at one tlrao in the hollow of tho
club and enjoy a charming vlow
out of a littlo window formed in it. I
havo rarely spent a day more delight
fully than in exploring all theso mor
sels of art and extra vaganco ; and set
ting them all aside, tho natural beauties
of the Park aro far beyond thoso of nny
other on tho continent. In tho midst
of it is a toy castle "Luxemburg"
built to Imitate a stronghold of tho mid
dle ages, with draw-bridges, battle
ments, towers, nnd ditches. Among
tho rusty suits In tho armory is ono
which belonged to tho Great Condo.
There is also a very curious collection
of dri liking-glasses, a series of portraits
of tho Tudors and Stuarts, and a libra
ry filled with romances alono. Thopub
lie aro not content that tho Klug has
devoted so magnificent a refugo to his
fallen foo, ami I doubt If ho will bo per

cugo through the streets of all tho Ger
man (owns, at a groschen a head, and
then bo sent to end his days nt St. Hel
ena, as his Illustrious uncle, whom ho
so much liked to Imitate.
The grounds wero lu splendid order.
Somo women wero cutting tho lawn
and clearing out among tho shrubbery
tho day that wo wero there. Tho pret
tiest face I havo yet scon In Germany

She was trimming, as wo passed out of

In a railroad car tho seats wero nil
full except one, which was occupied by
a pleasant-looking Irishman, and nt
ono of tho stations a couplo of evident

Wo copy as follows from tho Bt. Lou
" With every now step tho Invading
German armies tako towards Paris, tho
question about tho ultimate fato of tho
queen of modern cities becomes inoro
and tnoro momentous. Under theso
circumstances It must necessarily bo of
somo interest to inqulro into tho histo
ry of tho numerous solges it lias sus
tained from tho tlmo of Charlcmagno
down to our present ago. Tho first at
tack on Paris wo find recorded In his
tory was mado in A. D. 815, by ono of
those bold, northorn pirates who Infes
ted, during tho ninth century, all tho
European countries, named Regnor,
who, sailing up tho river Seine, sur
prised tho city, laid selgo to It, entered
It, and was finally brought ofr by King
Charles tho Bold.
" During tho hundred years' struggle
for tho crown of Franco between tho
houso of IMantagcnet nnd thohousoof
Valols, Paris was' successively belea
guered threo times, when in 1350, at
Polctior.s, tho black Prlnco had defeated
and mado prisoner King John thoGood,
tho population of Paris and pcasauty
of tho surrounding country, making
uso of tho helpless condition of their
sovereign, roso in rebellion, selzod tho
government and placed at their heod
ono Stephen Marcel, tho Robesplerro of
that age. Indeed, tho proceedings of
these wild demagogues very much ro
sombled, on n small scale, those which
wero enacted at a later period at Ver
sailles. At the approach of tho Dauph
in with tho army, tho city was hastily
placed in a statoof defense, and martial
law proclaimed. All attempts of tho
Dauphin to tako tho city by assault
failed until tho besieged, tired of tho
terrorism of Marcel, slow tho despot
and opened tho gates to tho Royal
Prlnco. In 1350, Edward III., King of
England, encamped at Moutroguo, do
vastated tho country to tho walls of
Paris, but recoiled from before it, and
retired to Chnrtres. Ono of tho most
interesting at Licks on Paris is perhaps
that mado in 1-129 by Jeanne d'Arc, tho
Maid of Orleans. After having by Jicr
Inspired heroism required tho English
to raiso tho siego of Orleans, and hav
ing led triumphantly her beloved
Charles through tho midst of tho ene
my to his coronation nt Rheitns, sho
did not think her mission ended, though
longing for her quiet homo at Dom Re
my, until sho had re-established tho
King on tho throuo of his ancestors.
AH places on tho march to Paris fell
again into tho hands of tho King, and
tho fortificationsof St. Denys was carried
by storm. Tho attack on tho city,which
was dofendod by Count Bedford, was
led by Joan herself. But notwithstand
ing sho fought with more than her won
ted courage, not being supported by
tho King, who remained inactive in
his position at St. Denys, sho was driv
en back and had to withdraw tho army
without accomplishing her noblo de
sign. " Tho next descent on Paris was mado
in UGJ, by tho Count of Charolals, af
terward Charles tho Bold, Duke of Bur
gundy. Charles had already penetra
ted Into tho suburbs of Paris, when
Louis XL, fomenting a rising at Liege,
a placo nowly conquered by Charles,
compelled him to abandon the siege, in
order to return to prevent rebellion
spreading over his vast dominions.
Again, in 1512, tho Emperor Charles V.
great grandson of Charles tho Bold and
rival of Francis I., took up his line of
march with -10,000 German aud Spanish
troops toward the French capital, redu
cing nil tho fortified places along his
routo in tho neighborhood of Paris.
Tho peaco of Crosby, offered by King
Francis I., saved tho capital from a
siege, and probably from a surrender.
After tho St. Bartholomew massacro,
and during tho intestitio wars between
the Holy Leagtio and tho Huguonots,
Paris sustained several sieges. Tho
Duko of Gulso, tho chief of tho noly
League, having been assassinated nt
Blols In a most dastardly manner, by
ordor of King Henry III., tho leaguers
wero only roused by this atrocious
erlino to moro vigorous massacres.
They assembled a parliament, deposed
tho king, and created tho Duko of
Mayence, brother of tho murdered
Guise, lieu tenant-governorof tho king
dom. Despised and forsaken, Henry
III., saw no other way to safety" open
to him thau au alliance with Henry of
Navarre. Thoy. laid slego to Paris, and
threatened to reduce tho faithless (own
ton heap of ruins, when tho knlfo of a
fanatical monk, Jacques Clement, put
nn end to tho Hfo of nenry III., at St.
Cloud, on tho 1st day of August, 1580.
After this Henry IV., tried for a long
tlmo to get possession of his Inhorltanco
by tho sword. Ho laid slego to Paris
lu tho year 1590, aud caused tho citizens
to feel all tho horrors of f.uiilno ; but
ho at last becaino convinced that ho
could not gain pcaceablo possession of
tho French throno by battles and victo
ries. Ho flrought tho crown of Franco
was worth a mass antl wont over to tho
Catholic church. Paris now threw open
Us gatos nud welcomed tho brlnger of
peace with loud acclamation. Franco
was now under tho lelgn of tho Bour
bons, fast becoming tho first power In
Europe, and during tho following two
centuries Paris saw no enemy bcforolts

and 1815 nro too well-known to bo reci

In tho midst of change, improvement
and reform, quite a numberof question
able old notions continuo to bo followed
even now, when tho very erroneous
character of somo of them lias been
generally acknowledged. Of this char
acter is tho rigid adhcrenco of drivers
of horses to that useless and injurious
rulo of old times, tho check-rein. Its
use with draft horses Is positively cru
el. Wheu a horso Is drawing a heavy
load, and particu'arly up hill, ho needs
tho utmost rccelotn of lungs ami wind
and this ho can nover havo with a tight
check-rein.' That tho check-rein nro-
vcnls a horso from stumbling is moro
than doubtful ; on tho contrary, by ele
vating his eyes, it provents him from
seeing clearly whero to placo his foot.
When a horso does stumblo, ho is far
less likely to go down wlten his head is
left frco. In England, whero thoy nro
far ahead of us in everything pertain
Ing to horses, tho check-rein has been
abolished ; tho last surrender being
that of tho artillery nnd commlssarnit
trains of tho British army, tho change
having been mado by Sir Geoigo Bur-
goyno, tho Commander lu Chief, and
ho testifies to tho beneficial effects at
tending it. In Now York City many
of tho finest equipages aro driven with
out tho check-rein, and a few humane
peoplo havo also thrown It out of uso
hero. The old-fashioned "blinkers,"
or blind halters, nro also useless, if not
positively injurious, by rubbing tho
lids of tho horses' eyes j and many ex
perienced horsemen long ago camo to

Wo seldom hear a better sermon on
tho duty of preparing for tho "bourno
whence no traveller returns" than is
contained in tho allegory which relates
that n man onco foil through this world
Into tho next. Thcro ho discovered
that wo retain thoso parts of ourselves,
nml thoso only, which wo havo assid
uously used here. Curious was tho
spectaclo presented lo his wondering
sight. Ho saw hundreds of hungry-
looking cars. They wero forovcr con
gregatlng and hurrying hither and
thither. IIo was informed that ou earth
theso had dono tho hearing of church
inu;!cand church sermons j had culti
vated tho listening faculty, and noth
ing else, so that they wero now cars
and nothing moro. IIo noticed big
stomachs lying about contentedly un
der fences and trees, and was told that
theso wero persons who had chiefly
U3ed their gastronomic powers who
had assiduously guzzled at saloons, and
gormandized at restaurants. Ho bo
camo interested in somo largo dolls,
with complexions llko wax dolls, too,
that appeared to movo their eyelids
languidly, and sometimes to gape.
These, ho learned, wero what remained
of ladles who had cultivated only good
looks. On inquiry for a popular preach-
or, ho was conducted to a placo full of
ears, whero a lively skeleton, without
a vest I go of heart or brain, was still

Miles to Mnri'3- n Man SIic
From tho Beverly (N. .T.) Visitor.
Many years ngo tho Rov. R. 8. Mac
lay was sent by tho Board of Missions
as missionary to China. Ho was rea
sonably successful, but felt In need of n
wife, nnd wroto to tho Board requesting
them to send lilm ono from America.
Tho Rov. Dr. Plttman, then Secretary
of tho Board, being a man of very fino
feelings, wroto to Brother Mnclay that
It was a very dcllcato and difficult mat
ter to solcct a wife for another man, nnd
advised him to defer marriago until "a
moro convenient season," when ho
might bo permitted to return to his na
tivo land nnd mnko a choice- of ono of
111 fair and worthy daughters. Tho Rov.
Dr. Kidder, a member of tho Board,
had moro boldness, however, nnd set
about tho work of wife-selecting with it
zeal worthy of tho most ardent lover.
Ho directed his attention particularly
to.rtMlss Sperry of Brooklyn, N. Y.,
then on n visit to Newark, N. J., whom
ho know to bo every way worthy tho
confidence and lovo of nny man, but
moro especially or tt Christian minister,
beluga lady of piety and culluro; but
ho was somowhat doubtful whether sho
possessed tho self-sacrificing spirit of a
missionary to leave her relatives and
friends nnd all she held dear, and travel
thousands of miles to a land of strafl
gers, whero sho was not acquainted
with a living soul, not oven tho man
who in this very strango manner hart
asked her to becomo his wifo. After
tho first surprise, tho lady asked tlmo
to consider, tho result of which was ac
ceptance, and sho set about preparing
for tho long journey.
Mr. Mnclay was written tho state of
tho case thcro was no telegraph in
those days and it may bo just at this
time ho may havo had somo misgivings
of ills modo of action. Hero was a lady
coming thousands of miles to marry
him, whom ho had never seen, with
whoso disposition or temperament ho
had no knowledge, und all ho had to
rely upon was tho recommendation of a
brother minister 1 Thcro is not a man
In a thousand who would bo satisfied
with such a choice. But then sho was
pious and self-sacrificing ohl how self
was completely thrown in tho shado
by her acceptance of such nn oiler und
her going upon such it mission. This
wus tho comfort, tho consolation, und
tho harbluger of lovo aud huppiuess.
Aud how was it with tho young la
dy? Was sho not equally exercised
about her position? Did sho not fre
quently, during that long and hazard
ous Journey, question hcnelf as to her
prudenco lu accepting tho proposal of
marriago iu such u second-haud way ?
Sho never saw tho man that was to bo
her husband j sho ouly knew him by
rcpuluUoti ; sho might bo unattractive
lo hini, and ho repulsivo to her, when
they met for tho first time.
At length sho arrived at her dcatina'
tion in China, and tho marriago took
place at the houso of a brother mission
ary, and ever slnco thoy havo not only
lived happily together, but havo been
eminently successful in their mission
ary work. Tho two eldest sons of that
romantic union aro nowstudents in tho
Wcsleyan University at Middlctowu,
t-'iiua., having graduated atPcnnington
.Seminary, N. J., about a year ago.
They aro both destined for tho minis

But such nro exceptional cases. Uni

much against a man. IIo who givos no
