In yculli wo rested on the hill orhnrc.
And Mowed before us tho piospecllvo pleasure!
Wo watched the warm east bulling valo and
With rays downladen w Ith their golden treasure.
There came a Miada that lent a tinge to sadness,
Yet made I ho ton! more spiritually bright ;
She took my hand, nnd In u olco of gl idnes,
Pointed to where a bird snlled In Hie light.
Willi the smooth waving wing that skimmed tho
t'pward and onward my heart kept tlmo and
Until a cloud, with a stiver- lining fair,
Concealed tho bird, and blinded my devotion.
Tlio moon approached, and with It worldly p.iln,
We labored In the vale with burning rays
flow moved tho rock across our Held of grain,
And d irkiio-s scorned to fall on those who cartd
to loo us.
On the western slopo In twilight now,
We turn with sadness toward the night bo
ll lid us;
1 he care of time Is II ved on either brow,
And Mghs nro boiu of thoughts that but re
The Hid that sailed at early summer morn,
Iiehlndthe cloud with silvery lining f.Ir;
Was 5 outh's bright Lopo w hlch tied from mo with
And left my days to darkness and despair.
Tho rouk that moied across my Deld of grain,
Pore on his wings the blight of coming yeais;
Hut still to lne there s solace In her strain
Vv ho raised me first to life among the spheios.

assertion, it is necessary that I shutiM in

of the Xmv York delegation to the Demo

One evening, in Hie lutlcr part ol Jluy 1
was i-e.iteil with toy wife in our pretty lioiire
on Kahili street, enjoying a fragrant cup of
tea f . r if thcu is anything that I am ft

shopping, and l.ile I was sipping my II y
ton flavored wilL orange, she was sin wing
tne her iitirchaes. She was expatiating on
In 'lo;o of a bonnet,' when we were both
startled by a violent ring at the bell, and in
a minute or two afterward a servant entered
informing me that Mr. Lawrence Ardew
wi'lied to sec me immediately. As Ardew
was a particular friend of mine I immedi
ately ordered him to be admitted.
'Giiuby,' slid Ardew, as soon as he had
paid his respects to my wife, (I should have
told you before that my uamo is Jonathan
Gunby). 'Gunby, I wan't you to do me a
What is it my dear fcl'oiv? I replied.
I could afford to bo allectiouale, for I knew
that Ardew was too rich to want money.
You know I am a politician, aid Ar
I know you are,' I returned, 'and not
much good it has done you. To my certain
knowledge you hovo not received a cent of
benefit ftom it; on the other hand, you have
spent a good many hun Ir-'d dollars.'
Just wait till is elected President,
nnd then you will bee; but that is not the

'What!' I cried, jumping up from my
chairin excitement. 'I, Jonathan Gunby,
wholesale provision merchant, act as a mem
ber of a political convention! never, my
dear friend, never!'
'Hut you must. I will pay all expenses,
and tho trip will do you good. I have no
ticed that vou seemed to be thinner than you
used to be; a change is tho very thing for
you. The fact i', I have an important taw
uit going on, and it is utterly nnpossiblo
that I can leave New York. You must do
this favor for me, my dear Gunny.'
'Hut, Ardew, I never attended a political
meeting in my life, I replied, somewhat
softened by the fact that all my expenses
would bo paid. 'I should make a blockhead

Tho horses' heids were tumid round, nnd
wo proceeded down Ilaltimore street over ,i
bridge which spanned a muddy stream of
water, called Jone'n Tails, I believe. Wo
then plunged intoa mass of narrow, intricate
treets nnd at last stopped beforo the door
of a very ordinsrylooking tavern.
It bore a nonde'cript looking sign, which
wna told represented a golden angel, by
hlch name It was known.
I entered and madu my stereotyped in-
pilry whether I could have a bed there for
tho night, Tho landlord, a thick-, btirli-
lookingman, with a gleam of latent humor
in his face, shook his head, and repealed
the hateful words 'All full.'
I turned to go hw.iv, but was recalled by
the vnico of thc.host.
'Would you mind sharing a bed witli an
other party?' said he.
If there is no help for it I suppose I
must,' I replied, 'although to tell the truth,
is by no means agreeablo to me,' and I in
wardly heaped denunciations on Ardcw's

I must make a liiimiliatinf confession to
tho reader: I am not a bra-, t an. I have
flen tried to persu-ide mj ell' that I run,
but truth compels me 1 1 vie ll.at not a
greater coward exists than n.v-lf. The
landlord's description of tuy U ul'ellow was
anything but assuring, and I was on the
point of declining when the proprietor of
the Golden Autre, no doubt reading what
was transpiring in in my miud, exclaimed:
'You arc afraid, are you?'
'Afraid! I should think not, Indeed,' I
returned, for I was too mt'cli of a ciward to
brave being thought one. 'I accept your of
fer of half a lied. Dring mo some brandy
nnd water and a cigar.'
I sat down at one of tho little tables in
the bar-room, and pulling away at my cigar,
tried to persurde myself that I was yery
jolly. It was a miserable attempt, howev
er. I had previously supped at a restaurant
in a modern part of the city. After my ci
gar was finished, I asked to be shown to my
chamber, The landlord took upon himself
the task cf being my conductor, and I fo1
lowed him up a narrow, ricketty staircase.
Wo kept on ascending until we reached the
top of the liou-c, when wo entered a moder-
tely-sued room, but much cleaner than I
ad expected to find it. The ceiling was
ery low, and inclined in front to the slope
f tho roof. The apartment contained but
ne bed which was placed apainst the wall
near the door. At ihe opposite end of the
hamber was a table, placed between the
two windows which looked on the roof.
The landlord placed tho lamp upon
the table, and I noticed that he shielded the
light Willi his hand as lie passed near

'I shall bo careful,' I replied.
That's all right! Good night,' he whis
crcd, nnd left the room.
He had no sooner gone than I cautiously
sat down, taking care not to mako the leat
oi.-e. I then calmly siitveyed my position.
It was certainly not a very enviable one.
Accoidingto the landlord's account my com
panion was anything but an amiable charac-
If I should ch inco to awaken him I
knew not what might nccu IIo might as
sault me dangerously before I could enter
into any explanation. I had half resolved
to pasi the night in the chair, and not to
retire lo bed at all. But it was ono of the
old high-backed chairs, and made uch an
uucoinfnrtablo seat that I soon tired out.
I then ventured to glanco around the room.
My eyes naturally fell on the bed,
There was ono thing that consoled me;
my companion appeared to bo In sound

see the ridge made by his fee: at the end ol

landlord's words, that the strainer was an

de-ist. The thought struck mo that I might
innnagp to lie on the ll-ior, but a moment's
examlantioii settled the question in the neg
ative, fur the floor was entirely bare, and
the air blew very cold through the wide
chinks in tho planking. I cast my eyes to
the ceiling and noticed for tho first time
that a heavy benm sludded wllh numerous
hooks ran throiign the apartment; but I was
not a bird and could not perch there. This
discovery wasof little use to me.
Half an hour passed away in this stale of
iiii'ccision. I stole cautiously to one of the
windows, and ga.ed on tho beautiful city
bathed in tho light of a full moon,
How quiet aud calm everything looked
Hut the air felt fresh nnd cold, nnd I closed
tho window and resumed my seat in the
chair. I then found myself wondering what
avoiuthn my friedd in bed followed, I sinl-
lenly cast my eyes on a heap of clothes which
lay on a trunk covered witli a handkerchief,
ii doubt belonging lo the sleeper. My curl
unity got the hotter of my politeness, and bo
fore I scarcely knew what I was about I
found myself cxamlnleg 1 is apparel. Tho
handkerchief which o ivered them was
coarse cotton one, nnd his clothes wero
coarse homespun, and were such ns nre Usti
ally wont by drovers. My companion then
was evidently n drover a rough chua

1'artly undressed as I was, I be;an to feel
very cool but before venturing luto bed
determined to try an experiment to seo
the drover slept soundly or not, I had taken
the piccaution to leave the bedroom door
pei o that I could make a run of It if neC'
cssary, I fixed my eye on tlio bed as I let
my boot fill. Tho drover was evidently a
sound sleeper, for although the noiso made
was considerable ho did not mako the slight
est motion. This decided me nnd I hastily
finished undressing nud crept into bed.
I was careful not to touch my compan
ion. I do not know how long I lay awake,
but the novelty of th' situitlon drovo sleep
from myejes for smne time, Ily degree',
owever, tho stiangencss of my position
wore off. I felt reassured by my bedfellow's
sound sleep, and the gentle murmur of tho
breize outside caused mo to follow- his ex
I have ii idea how long I slept before I
cotnmt need to dream, I suddenly however,
thought that tuy companion woko up and
sat upright in bed, that ho glared around
him and at last his eyes fell upon inc. He
then uttered a terrible cry and threw hi?
arms around me. In spito of my natural
cowardice, I saw that if I did not struggle I
should be killed. I thought I seized him by
the throat, and tightening my grasp I saw
him getting black in the face. Ills hands
fell powerless by his si le, a smothered groan
e'eaped him; but still'l pressed his throat
tighter, tighter his face grew blacker and
'In agony of fear I awoke, and what was
my horror and dismay to find that my hand

He did not move norstir and his body felt

jumped out of bed. Morning had
lawned, although the sun had not yet risen.
I rushed to tho window and pulled back tho
curtain. I then ran to the bed again and
aud looked at my cominnlon. Mv worst

tV face -strangled in my sleep!
1 shall not attempt to describe my eena
ion at this horrible sptctacle. Mv body
was bathed in a cold per'piralion, my hands
trembled, and for a few momenta I believe I
was bereft of my senses, I recovered by de
grees but It was only to realize in a more
acute degree tho horror of my situation.
There lay my victim and I was a murderer?
My trial, conviction, and the hideous gal
lows all passed in rapid review before me !
I sat down, buried my face in my hands and
obbed like a child. M' wife, my own com
firtablo home should I ever seo them

the house and make a clean breast of il? But
what could I say? Tell them I had killed a
man in my sleep? Not a soul would bcllevo
the story. Could I effect my escape? Im
possible; the crime would be detected before
I could leave the city; nnd I should be ar
rested; then tho law would take Its course,
and I should bo hanged by the neck until I

my only chance, and I determined to put it
I took the dead man's handkerchief, and
advanced to tho corpse with a great deal of
repugnance, but with more courage than I
could have anticipated. My own fearful
situation i. doubt, animated me to an ex
lent that I should never otherwise have
dreamed of. I made a noose in the hand
kerchief and slipped it over tho dead man's
neck. I then lifted tho body out of bed,
and standing on a chair, fastened the oilier
end ol the handkerchief to a hook in the
beam. I nuw left the body go aud it swung
I jumped into bed, and shut my eyes to
close the horrid sight from my gazf. I de
termined to wait there until somebody
should come Into the room, and then pretend
that I knew nothing at all about it, and
that the man must have got up in the night
and hanged him-elf.
I lay quaking and trembling for over an
hour. It grew- broad daylight. I felt tho
sun shining directly ou the bed, but I dare
not open my eyes fir fear that I sh -uld cn
counii i i he il.ingl!ng corp-e. Suddenly I
heard -lie step of two men ou the stairs.
They appeared to be carrying something
heavy between them. Tho long-anticipated

hicli I recognized to be the landlord's,

I brealh'U freely, for I immediately uu
lerstood tho whole matter. The landlord
had put me to sleep with a dead man. J
heard them take down tho body and and put
it into a colliri for it was what they had
brouilitwith them. They carried It awav
and 1 was left to myself. With my miud
thus relieved I fell asleep and enj lyed two

Not a word paed between us wiih refer

from to. unversatiiin of tho people while I

I told it to you, dear reader, but with the
same construction that the landlord" of the
Golden Angel put upon i' Kvcrjbody

however, to which I have fully made up my
mind, nml that I', I will never attend an

l-'ew, even among tho'O who havo given
some attention to tho subject, know the depth
of wretchedness to which within a compara
tively short period the lunatic was consigned,
and which, even at tlio prccnt day, is in
soiiio places scarcely lessened. Ur. C'onolly,
whose, advanced idias of fcienco and hu
manity led to tho uniform adoption in Kng
lainl of tho "non restraint'' system of treat
ment, speaking only thirty years ago ou this
subject, says : "Very few physicians of ed
ucation were to bo found, until a recent pe
riod, devoting themselves to mental disor
ders. Those occupied in asylums were chi I
ly distinguished by an eccentricity and a
roughness which, unfitting th-nt f-r other
piofo.-sional vocations, made them wilMni to
undertake to treat mad people, liy such
persons, ill-tdacated, prejudiced, aud with
out any resources hut methods of violence,
and who had never studied tho forms aud
treatment of mental disorders, all attempts
to amelioralo the condition of tho insane
wero bitterly and unscrupulously opposed
with cvciy effort and every contrivance of
vulgar minds. Mcautiiuc, the outside walls
of an asylum were regarded with awe ; tho
shrieks issuing from it made night hideous ;
thu frantic creatures enclosed in their dcu
furnished appalling subjects for tiio artist or
the nnvelit ; squalor and dirt, and famine
and ferocity wero ever where lo be met
with." And now in the latter half of the
nineteenth century wo find that tho methods
which Conolly so vigorously denounced, und
to the abolitiou id' which he gavo his life, nre
iu full use in almost every asylum iu the
United States ; that the attempts to improve
the conditiou of the insane arc opposed, as
iu his day, by those who have the charge of
them ; that dens are still in existence, chains
still employed, blows still Inflicted, systctnat-
flogging still pracli-cd, tho strait jacket
till used as a means of restraint ; and that
these agencies of subjection are supplement
ed by the Utica crib, an apparatus not on-
inhuman, but one which no person pos
ting a competent knowledge, of tho phjs-
logy of tho brain and tho pathology of
sanity would vculuro to introduco into tho
wards of a lunatic asylum. . . .
Within about a year four homicides occurr-
1 in the New York City lunatic asylum on
V aid s Island. In ono of these a pvieut
was beaten to death by an attendant ; in ar
other, an attendant was killed by a patient
in tho third, a patient was thrown off the
half aud drowned by another patient ; and
in tho fourth, one lunatic was ordered to give
hot bath to another, not only insane, but
paralyzed. After getting him into the bath
tub ho turned on tho hot water and walked
away leaving the poor wretch actually to bo
boiled to death. In the asylum ut St. I'eter,
Minnesota, a patient who refused to eat had
his mouth filled with food by a nurso, and the
uiess pushed down into his stomach with the
handle of a knife, while another nurse held
hitu down. On ona occasion ho ran away
yelling that they wanted to kill him. He
was caught and laid on a bench ; ona atlcn
dant hold his hand--, and sat across his body
another attendant and a patient helped to
hold him ; his mouth was plugged to pre
vent his closing it. The food (soup) was
poured in liom a pitcher; Ins breath was
heard to "gurgle" as th soup went into his
windpipe, aud in five minutes he was dead
Last winter, minors in regard to tho bad
