I I. A FREEMAN WHOM
ax ixcioevt or the: flight
There is a sweet tradition
Of the Mother and the Child,
Who, with Joseph, fled to Egypt,
From their native hind exiled.
Ah ! the lips I heard repeat it
Have been silent many vearp,
And the mem'ry of this legend
Chokes rny utterance w ith tears.
Though to yor I fain would tell it,
Song of mine cannot convey.
Like the voice of rny dear mother,
What my heart would long to say ;
For a holy inspiration
Seemed to breathe in every word.
" h;Ie her lingers drew sweet music
From the willing chords they stirr'd.
When they fled across the desert,
Josejdi and his Jewish bride,
With a God for their companion
And an angel for th ir guide.
Night fell 'round them, and the shelter
Of a da:k and lowly cave
Was the only place of refuge.
Earth, her great Creator gave.
Other inmates had that cavern.
Dark and swarthy visaged men,
And another intltnt lying
Ne.r its mother, in the den ;
disease hnd stamped its features.
And the Virgin saw, and pte.s'd
Closer still the precious burden
That she bore upon her breaat.
When she washed her babe in water
From a stream that flowed near by,
The poor mother of the leper
Took the same, she scarce know why,
And, when all around was silent,
Bitiied her hapless, tainted child,
In the waves made pure and hoiy
By that Presence undefiled.
Lo ! a change, is softly stealing
O'er the little, shrunken form.
And from lips of roselike beauty
Comes liis breathing, pure and warm ;
Ad ois a-e has fL-d she raises
Up to G d her tearful eyes,
'An 1 with grateful joy she brings him
Close to where the Savior lies.
Mary lays her hand in blessing
(hi the soft and rosy brow.
And with keen, prophetic vision.
Sees the form, so lovely now.
On the gibbet, and she gathers
Her Emanuel to her heart.
For she knows that time of sorrow
Wid not find them far apart.
Note The last vers? has reference ta a
tradition that the child here spoken of was
afterwards the repentant thief on the cross.

THE VICTORS UNPRECEDENTED SCORE.
Dear Eaguk: The great Base Ball
Match which I referred to last week has
It was between the first (and only) nine
of the O'Pake club, and the Chad club.
We played on the Capitoline ground,
which had been nicely swept and sprin
kled, und the bases white-washed.
The weather was line though cloudy,
warm though windy.
The attendance of spectators must have
been less than fifteen thousand, but for
leaf of accidents from heavy batting none
were allowed in the enclosure.
Chad arrived first and threw his castor
into the ring and olfered to bet

There were no takers, as every ball
player takes the Cln-owck; but none of
them cared about a Turkish Bath.
U Pake soon after appeared, and was
received with applause and music by the
band. Hugh 1. Blode, of the Rooster
club, was chosen Umpire, and play began.
The Chads went in first and we went,
out. We expected to have M. T. Jugg
for a pitcher, but he didn't appear, but
sent his cousin O'Tard, who pitched in
so heavily at the start that he hit the bats
man, cornered on the short stop, and
knocked the scorer out of time.
The Umpire cried fowl.
O'Pake wanted to know who he called
a fowl if he alluded to any of his nine.
He'd find there were no chickens in that
Umpire apologized, and the game wed
Chad got a splendid strike, got as far
as the second base, and was calculating
on a home run w hen our right field, who
was stationed on the corner of Washing

on a fly.
Blister then took the bat ; he let fly at
the ball, but the pitcher dodged, got home
on bis bread-basket, and sent him to rasa.

Bloater then tried his luck at the bat,
which he bundled with great skill, but
failed to connect with the ball. He al

We should have scored one, but the

O'Pake made a hit and changed his bace.

We went in again.
Things began 0 get mixed. It was

they were going to play a double game,

There were six bases now.

I grasped both the bats in both hands,
and stood on the two home bases.

THE QUEER SKELETON.
I announce myself to the. reader as the
man who believes in ghosts perhaps.
At any rate, I believe in my father, and
he believed in the story i am about to re
late. Iy father resided at Inswieh mJ
rf 1 ,
once had occasion to go to London on
business. It wa? during a period of great
popular commotion, and the city being
ery fulk lc hail sumo troobla iu finding
a Iodizing. The master of the house ob
served that it was a good, largo room
tor he 00IJ got but one und very com
fortable, if he did not mind but bore lie
stopped, for his wife gave him a nudge,
that made my father suspect somelldW
was not right.
"Jt isn't over a slaughter-house or a
burial ground, or a dissecting room, is
it ?" says my father.
"Oh, dear, no!" says the landlord;
"but some people say the next house is
haunted ; and that everybody who sleeps
in this room can see a lady in white cry
ing at that window that you can see
"Oh, is that all ?" saj s my father ; "per
haps there's some poor maniac confined
there. Whether or no, however, that's
110 objection, for I don't care ii 1 ush for
all the ghosts that ever were invented."'
Well, he took possession of the room,
and before night closed in he had an op
portunity of taking an accurate survey of
the neighboring premises. A lead roof,
apparently over a workshop, lay between
his window and that one where the gho.-t
was said to appear ; only there was this
difference, that he could easily step out of
hia upon the leads, whereas the neighbor's
was about nine or ten feet higher. My
father always vowed that he was perfectly
sober when lie went to bed. I Ie couldn't
tell how long he bad been asleep, when he
was suddenly awakened by loud screams ;
and when he opened his eyes be saw that
the opposite house was on tire. He was
out on the leads in a moment. The
haunted room was filled with bright flames,
and at the window stood a lovely young
woman, clasping a baby iu her arms, audi
screaming for help.
"Oh, save my child save my child !"
she kept on crying, in tones of such an
guish that they went into my father's very
"Give it to me," he said, "and then
jump out into my arms. The distance is
nothing : you cannot be hurt
' I ( tj IUU1 -
age ! Now, give me the babr
She leaned forward, and dropped the
baby, wrapped in a shawl, into my father's
arms. Just as he got it safe, it seemeel
to Vim that the roof fell in. There was
a crashing noise, but not very loud ; the
flames disappeared, and so did the young
lady. In at the window he rushed again,
and through the house, shouting "Fire !"
"fire 1" with all bis might, ainf with the
baby still in his arms. Out rushed the
landlord, as pale as a ghost, and bis wife
after him, in such a monument of anight
cap that it quite overawed ni"- father,
even in the midst of his agitation. The
maid was shrieking "Murder!" down in
the kitchen, and the apprentices had tum
bled out from under the counter in the
shop, and were poking their noses cau
tiously out, and kindiy inquiring who was
killing her ; and on every landing cp the
stairs .the loungers were culling out to
know what was the matter. There was
altogether a terrible row in the place.
"The next house is cn fire P said my
"It's only the ell story," said the land
lord. "Run up stairs, my dear, and tell
them it's a fal.-e alarm."
"But it is not a false alarm," says my
father, "for I saw the ilameSj and I saw
the roof fall in, and I fear that a latly is
buried under the ruins. Why don't you
come and help her? She had just drop
ped her child into my arms when the roof
1 II i.
The landlady then first set eyes on the
bundle, for her husband at that moment
lightcel a candle from the rush light, which
bad very imperfectly illuminated the scene
"A baby !" snys id.e".
"Yes," hivs my father, "and I think
I'd better leave it with you, ma'am, while
I go and endeavor tj rescuo tha mother."
The woman did not rpcak nor utter a
sound, but she just lifted up the shawl
from the child's face, and dropped down
like a lump of lead, upon the lloor. In
stead of attending to her, both my father
arid the landlord looked into the shawl.
It contained the skeleton of an infant,
wrapped up in the rags of "what had once
been very cot!y garments. My father
felt very sick, and the landlord staggered
baek ageing the wall and dropped the
candlestick out of his hand.
When tho landlady hdl (she v.-as a tall,
heavy woman, :md gave the house a good
shake,) the maid rcrcaraed "Murder!"
loiuh-r than ever, and the lodgers called
out yet more energetically to know what
wa3 the matter. That frightened the
landlord back to his senses ; tUr he thought

A few days since an Indianapolis family
had occasion to move. The direct line of
travel from the old to the new house was
past the stables of the Street Hal: way Com
pany. The lady had a large mirror, which
she concluded to carry in her hands to in
sure against accidents. Just opposite the
stables before mentioned something in the
street attracted hrr attention, and she stop
ped to look at it, resting c;i2 end of the
mirror on the curbstone. A small goat
of the. male persuasion loafs about the
stables, wasting hi.-; sweetness 0:1 the sur
rounding neighborhood, and having fero
cious combats with de-gs, hogs, and small
boy?. Wiilinrn was daintily nibbling at
a bundle of hay in the doorway of the
stables, when to his amazement he saw
what he took to be another goaf, saucily
shaking his horns at him.
No one ever doubted Billy's courage,
though his discretion has been repeatedly
called in question. Considering it a chal
lenge, he gathered himself on his feet, and
emitting a sharp, savage m-a-a, he sprang
into the air as if shot, from a catapult,
and dashed head, hom?, bod, and tail
through the mirror. There was a
frightened Fcrcam, mingled with the sound
of shivered glass, and the woman stood
amid the wreck of her pet looking-glass.
Bui Billy's blood was up. As she stoop
ed to save the. pieces, he "bucked" her
over, and repeated the operation as cften
as she tried to got up, until some of the
stable-men took him off.
The next day the outraged and insulted
woman called at the stable, represented
what the "nasty goat" had done, and
demanded S in payment cf the damages
to self and property. They promised to
inquire into it, and if the goat was found
to be to blame would settle up. Finally
the matter was compronised by taking the
mirror frame and agreeing to get a new
glass put in it. In the meantime, Capri

around with a pine board across his horns.

The Monongahchi IirpuMicaii has the
following: Not long ago the young and
beautiful wife of one of our citizens was
called to her final account, leaving her
husband disconsolate, pad, bereft. She
was buried in the adjacent cemetery, and
the husband returned to his desolate homo
but not to forget the loved one. She
was present with him by day in spirit and
in his dreams at night. One peculiarity
of his dreams, and one that haunted him,
being repeated night after night, was this,
that the Fpirit of his wife came to his bed
side and told him that tha undertaker had
not removed from her face the wpuarc
piece of muslin or napkin which had been
used to cover her face after death, but had
screwed down her coffin lid with it upon
her ; that she could not breathe in her
grave, but was unrest on account of tho
napkin. lie tried to drive the dream
awaVj but it bided with him by night and
troubled him by day. Ho f-ought the
ce'n-olations of religion ; his pastor prayed
with ami assured him that it was wicked
to indulge such moibid fancy. It was
fhe subject of his own petition before tho
Throne of Grace, but still the spirit camo
and teld anew the story of her suffocation.
In despair he sought the undertaker, Mr.
Dickey, who told him that tha napkin
had not leen removed, but urged him to
ferget the circuntance, as it could not
be any possible annoyance to inanimate
clay. While the gentlemen acknowledged
this, he could not avoid the apparition, an I
the continual stress upon his mind began
to tell upon his h-ahh. At length he de
termined to have the body dielnterred, and
visited the undertaker for that purpose.
Here he was met with the same advice
and persuasion, and convinced once more
of his follvj ihe haunted man returneel
to his home. That night, more vivid
than ever, more terribly real than before,
she cama to his bedside, and upbraided
him for his want of affection, and Would
not leave him until he had promised to
remove the cause of all her suffering. Ths
next night, with a friend, he repaired to
the sexton who was prevailed Lpon to ac
company them, and there, by the light ot
the cold, round moon, the body was lifted
from its narrow bed, the coffin lid un
screwed, and the napkin removed from the
face of the corpse. That night she came to
his bedside once more, but for the last
time. Thanking him for his kindness.
she pressed her cold lip3 to his cheek,and
came again no more. Header, this is a
true story ; can you explain the mysteries

There was once a very old man wdio
lived in the house of his son. The old
man was deaf ; his eyes were dim, and
his legs weak and thin. When he sat at
the table he could hardly hold his spoon,
so much did his band shake, and at times
he would spill his soup on the cloth.
All this vexed his son and the son's
wife, and they made the old man sit in a
Corner behind the stove.
There he ate his fbcxl from an earthen
ware dish ; and he had not always too
much to cat as you may guess.
Well, one day his trembling hands
could not bold the dish. It fell on the
lloor and broke. At this his son and his
son's wife were so vexed that they spoke
harshly to the old man. His only answer
was a deep, sad sigh. They then brought
him a bowl made of wood, out of whfch
he had to take his food.
Not long after this, his grandson, a boy
of about four years of age, was seen at
work with a chisel and hammer, hollow
ing out a h)g of wood.
His parents could not guess what ho
was trying to do. The little boy said
nothing to any one, but kept at work on
the log, and looking very grave, as if ho
had some great work in hand,
"What are you doing there ?" asked his
fa titer. The little boy did not want to
tell. Then his mother asked, "What art
you deing, my son "
"O," said he, "I am only making 'a
little trough, such as our pigs cat out of."
'But what are you making it for. mv
son?" ' J
"lam making it," said he, "for you and
father to eat out of when 1 am a man."
The parents looked at each other and
burst into tears. From that time forth
they treated the old man well. H0 had
the best place at the table, a nice dish
and plenty of food.
