Speak thou the truth. Let others fence
And trim their words for pay ;
In pleasant sunshine or pretence
Let others bask their day.
Guard thou the fact, though clouds of night
Down on thy watch tower stoop ;
'Tho' thou shouldst see thine heart's delight,
Borne from thee by their sweep.
Face thou the wind. Though safer seem
In shelter to abide.
We were not made to sit and dream;
The safe must first ho tried.
Where God bath eat his thorn about,
Cry not, Thy way is plain;
Ilia path within for those without
Se paved with toil and pain.
'One fragment of the blessed Word
Into thy spirit burned, .
Is better than the whole, half heard,
And by thine interests turned.
Show thou thy light. In conscience gleam
Set not the bushel down ;
The smallest mark may send its beam
O'er hamlet, tower and town.
Woe, woo to him on safety bent,
Who creeps from age to youth,
- Failing to grasp his life's intent,
Because he fears the truth.
Be true to every honest thought,
And as thy thought, thy speech ;
What thou bast not by suffering bought,
Presume thou not to teach.
- Hold on, hold on—thou haat the rock ;-
The foes are on the sand ;
The first world tempest's ruthless shock
Scatters their shifting strand.
While each wild guest the mist shall clear,
We now see darkly through,
And justified at last, appear
The true, in Him that's true.

The Memory of our School-Days,
There is something in student life
which endears the recollection of it,
and of all in anyway associated with
it, to the heart of every one. It may
be difficult to explain precisely in
what this charm consists; but no one,
I suspect, who was, in his youth, a
member, for any considerable length
of time, of one of our numerous litera
ry institutions, will deny its existence
or power. The memory of his school
or college days comes back to him, at
times, like the balmy breath of a May .
morning, to melt the ice beginning to .
form around his heart and the snow

/narked upon his brow by the autumn
frosts. The aroma may .be too deli

ing it excites may—as what of our
most pleasureable emotions are not?
slightly tinged with sadness; yet he
welcomes and fondly cherishes this
breezy recollection of the past, as it
comes to him, gently wafting on its
wings the scenes of his youthful trials
and triumphs, all the roughness of the
picture carefully smoothed down by
that rare old limpid memory, and the
light and shadows so skillfully bright
ened as to show all its beauties mel
lowed into their original softness and
There come back to him the old ri
valries and jealousies which look pecu
liarly small now; his lofty aspirations
and the gorgeous, youthful day-dreams
of fat= success, honor and usefulness,
And his noble resolutions as to his
.course in life. Alas I how poorly real
ized I how feebly kept! The follies
indulged in with that zest and relish
known only to the bounding blood and
high animal spirits of youth; the fa
ces and voices of old friends, which,
oven now, cause a strange fluttering of
the heart and quickening of the pul
ses, never excited by latter friendships;
the rambles 'over hills .and through
'valleys, whose contour, after so many
years, is still strangely fresh in the
memory; the happy hours spent in
Angling for speckled trout in the clear
stream, or in gazing dreamily into its
crystals pools, soothed by the gentle
lullaby of its musically murmuring
waters, as they glided gently but ra
pidly on, on, and away to the illimita
ble ocean, even as the happy hours and
fairy dreams of youth steal swiftly and
almost imperceptibly away from us
and are lost in the mighty ocean of the
eternal past; the nut.gatherings and
bunting excursions with some cherish
ed friend, among the woods and hills,
in the mellow autumn days, when an.
lure decks herself in her most glorious
robes for her bridal with death; the
welcome sense of relief from restraint,
and the rural lionizing of the vacation;

HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 1865.
President Johnson and the Children,
The Washington City Sunday School
Union of 5,000 children and 700 teach
ers, lately held their anniversary, and
marched t 6 the President's mansion,
where he stood in front of the outside
railing,. and delivered them an address,
a number of little girls being placed
beside and all around him, with whom
ho seemed much pleased.
The President said : This token of
respect was offered to ono who knew
well how to appreciate the condition
of poor and obscure children. There
should always be a just and proper
respect and appreciation of true merit,
whether it belongs to the Christian,
the statesman, or the philanthropist.
This was the foundation of his creed :
that all things should be done with the
approval of Him who controls the
events and destinies of the world. No
one over would be educated unless he
educated himself. Whether you have
superior advantages or not, you must
educate yourselves. Parents, teachers
and advantages given, aro simply the
means placed in your hands from
which you must mould and shape your
own course through life. But never
feel that you are superior to your more
humble companions and comrades. In
stead of trying to humble them , and
make their'condition lower, yourpride
should be to educate them to the stan
dard you occupy. Sometimes one may
come in rags and begrimmed with dirt;
but beneath the rags . and the dirt a
jewel may be found as bright as any
yet discovered, and the humble indi
vidual flay develop that which would
prove as bright an ornament as the
jewels of any crowned head. He
would pull none down; but would ele
vate all; level upwards,not level down
wards. His notion bad always been
that the great mass of the American
people could be elevated. If all will
be elevated, we fnay become the great
est and most exalted nation on the
My little daughters and sons, said
the speaker, give me your attention
while I say, honestly and truly, that if
I could inform you of something,, and
put that into immediate effect, .which
would tend to the elevation of you all,
I would be prouder of it than to be
President forty times. [Applause.]
Here * is the executive mansion and
yonder is the capitol of a great Nation,
and you look to those who make and
execute the laws as persons sublime
and grand. But just think for a mo.
mont. You aro the crop behind us.
All those buildings, and all of this gov
ernment, will ono day pass under your
control and becoine your property,
and you will have to put in force and
control the principles of government,
of religion and humanity. And lot all
boys consider, every mother's son of
them, that each one is born a candi
date for the presidency. Why not
then commence to educate yourselves
for the presidency ? And ho would
say to the little girls, that while they
could not be presidents, they are born
candidates for tho wives of presidents.
While each little boy may feel that ho
is a candidate for the presidency, each
little girl may feel that she is a candi
date for a president's wife, and each
should commence at once to qualify
himself and herself morally, intellectu
ally and socially for such high posi—
With regard to religion, he said the
time had coma when the first inquiry
should be whether one is a good man
or a good woman. If they are good it
matters little to what sect or church
they belong. There can bo no great
ness without goodness; and all should
remember with Popo, that
"Honor and fame from no condition rise;
Act well your part—there all the honor lies."
'When wo look at these, boys and
girls, at the banners which they carry,
at the flag, with stripes and stars upon
them, which they bear aloft—when
we look upon the bravo men and the
gallant officers around us, and remem
ber what they have been contending
for, wo feel that we can best preserve
this government if we rear up our peo
ple properly, and make this, as we can,
the most intelligent portion of God's
habitable globe. The stars and stripes
is not, an unmeaning symbol when we
look back through the din of battle
and see what it has cost to perpetuate
this government; and should we not
then use every effort to bring up prop
erly these children, whose cause bas
been sustained by strong arms on the
field of battle ? .Victory has perched
upon our standard, and the speaker
said he trusted the children's little song
of victory would be beard far up
above; and that the angels. standing
upon the battlements of heaven, would
take up the tune and make the re
Then my little sons and little daugh
ters, said the President, talking as a
father to his children, lot mo say to
you, educate yourselves; be industrious
and persevering; store your minds
with all that is good; put all things
worthy of preservation in' your brain,
and your intellects will expand and
grow. And in conclusion, I say again;
may your little song of' victory be
hoard in heaven. God bless you.
Tnoors FURNISIIED.—The Adjutant
Generals in Convention to-day in Bos
ton made reports showing the number
of troops furnished by the following
Maine, 66,669; Massachusetts, 153,-
706; Vermont, 34,490; New Hamps
shire, 33,258 ; Connecticut, 54,468 ;
Kansas, 21,948; Rhode Island, 25,355;
Pennsylvania, 360,000; West Virginia,
29,012 ; Iowa; 72,358.
The whole number of troops raised
in New England, 366,945, thus exceeds
the aggregate Of Pennsylvania 6,945.
According to the United States census
of 1860; the number of white males
between the ages of 18 and 45 years
in these States was as follows:
Pennsylvania, 555,172; lowa, 139,-
3165 Connecticut, 94,411; Now Hari-Ip
shire, 63,3105_ Rhode Island, 35,502;
Massachusetts, 258,418; Maine 122,238;
Vermont; 60,580; West Virginia, not
ascertained; Kansas, 27,976.
A comparison of these figures with
those we give above will show that
Pennsylvania has contributed troops
in a larger ratio than any of the New
England States, except Rhode Island.
The nearest approach to us, with that
exception, is Massachusetts, which has
sent three fifths of her arms bearing
population, while we have sent rather
more than that. Rhode Island has
raised men in about the same ratio as
Pennsylvania. Kansas exceeds us all,
but her population must have increas
ed very largely since 1860, as other
wise the figures shoiv that she has
sent nearly her whole adult white
male population into the field. The
figures given above do not include the
colored troops, of whom Pennsylvania
furnished a largo number, while they
do not include the Massachusetts ool
ored troops, and probably those of
If we could add to our total all the
colored troops raised in Pennsylvania
by the United States officials, as well
as all the white and black men raised
here for Now York, Now Jersey, Del
aware and Massachusetts regiments,
our State would astonish every one by
her aggregate. But, taking the figures
as they stand, we think they ''may
challenge the attention of all, as show
iugthe immense strength and resources
of this noble old commonwealth.

"Mad Poet." During the last year of

this errant man of genius could be
seen accepting its hospitalities, when
other doors were closed upon his fallen
fortunes. Every one know Clarke by

The Use -of Ice.
In health no ono ought to drink ice
water, for it has occasioned fatal infla
mation of the stomach and bowels, and
sometimes sudden death. The tempta
tion to drink is very strong in summer;
to use it. at all with any safety, the
person should take but a single-swal
low at a time, take the glass from lips
for half a minute, and then another,
and so on. It will be found that in
this way it becomes disagreeable after
a few meuthfulls. On the other hand,
ice itself may be taken as freely as
possible, not only without injury, but
with advantage in dangerous forms of
disease. If broken in the size of a pea
or bean , and swallowed as freely as
practicable, without much chewing or
crushing between the teeth, it wii. of

kinds of diarrhoea, and has cured vari%

In croup, water, as cold as ice can
make it, applied freely to the throat,
neck and chest, with a sponge or cloth,
very often affords an almost miracu
lous relief, and if this be followed by
drinking copiously of the same ice-cold
element, the wetted parts wiped dry,
and the child wrapped up well in the
bed-clothes, it falls into a delightful
and life-giving slumber.

SOMMER PEuNnvo or GnArrs.---Tho
California. Farmer gives, in a comm.
.nication from J. J. Walker, of Los An
geles, the following statement :
"I will relate one instance of the of.
feet of summer pruning. A few years
ago I saw at one of our wino presses a
lot of grapes, among which were - many
clusters entirely white; others that
were slightly colored,' and many that
had berries of all the different shades
of color from a greenish white to a
dark purple. The grapes wore of more
than average size, extremely tender,
not unpleasant to taste, but deficient
in acid, sugar and firmness. The pile
looked like a family of mulattoes. As
the winemaker could afford no expla.
nation of this phenomenon, I inquired
where the, grapes wore grown, and
sought a solution of the mystery by
an examination of the vineyard, and
by inquiries of the owner. The vines
were twelve years old, of the common
variety, planted at the usual distance
apart, and .had grown vigorously from
the time of planting, and were of good,
height from the ground. There bad
been a heavy growth of canes on the
vines that season, owing in part to the
heavy rains of the winter previous,
1861-2, so as to interlock and cover the
field. About the time the berries had
attained their growth, and just as they
were beginning to take color, the own
er, in order to give the grapes a better
opportunity to ripen and acquire sweet
ness, went through the vineyard, clip
ping off enough of the ends of the canes
so as to open a space between rows to
permit ventilation and allow the rays
of the sun to reach the ground. The
vines being in a, luxuriaot state, ha.
mediately threw out numerous new
branches from the clipped canes, with
new, and fully developed, but rapidly
growing loaves. The phenomenop
was fully and satisthetorily explained.
When the berries needed .thrifty and
well developed leaves, to collect heat,
light and other : elements from the air,
and elaborate, the sap, so as to furnish
color; sugar, etc., they had been . de
prived of' them, arid the vines were al
most exclugively engaged,, and the sap
consumed in forming leaves."

Casualties of the War.
Official estimates at the War Depart
ment compute the number of deaths
in the Union "armeis since the cOm
mencement of the war, including the
starving prisoners, at three hundred
and twenty five thousand. There has
doubtless been fully two hundred
thousand Southern soldiers removed
by disease and the casualties of the
battle, so that not less than five hun
dred and twenty-five thousand lives
have been sacrificed in this unholy
contest, begun and prolonged by the
South in their vain effort to build up
a new republic and strengthen the
Our greatest losses during any ono
campaign occurred at Gettysburg,
when 23,267 Union soldiers were kill
ed, wounded and taken prisoners.
